Scouts NZ-Grid Ref Memory

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Teams of 3 or 4 scouts mark a square grid on the floor with chalk. Number the grid lines similar to a map. They place 10 small objects around the grid and build a screen for their grid out of tables, chairs etc so that the other teams can't see their grid directly. Each team then have 3 minutes to view the other team's grids to memorise the positions of the other objects. Back at their own grid they take it in turns to call out an object and its coordinates to win the object ( a bit like the old battleships game )


Chalk, objects, tables and chairs. ( some paper and pens if you want to make it easier and faster )


as above
