Agree a playing area with boundries. A number of 'paintings' are prepared, magazine or paintings posted onto cardboard, a value is given for each on the back.

A 'mobile' gallery is another Scout Leader or Leaders who will hand one miniature painting to each team (Patrol) on demand, the teams have to find them first. A final Scout Leader is the 'fence' to whom the teams of villains (Scouts) have to get as many paintings as possbile before the end of the game, he will also record the value of the pictures fenced by the different teams. The local Police are involved, conveniently disguished as Explorer Scouts and their job is to apprehend villains 'in possession of stolen property'
