Challenge 2: Choosing the right game

Choosing the right game.
You’re often asked to run a game at just a few seconds notice. You therefore need to be able to choose a game and judge whether or not it’ll be successful, prepare it and plan it in a short space of time. To the right are different scenarios. You should make a table with three columns detailing what game you would play in that scenario; why you’d play it and the requirements needed. Here is an example of a table with a scenario:

Different Scenarios. Different Games.
Find each of the scenarios below:

 
 
 
Beach!

You arrive at the beach with 16 cubs and discover the other bus is stuck in traffic and will be 20 minutes late. You’re asked to run a game. What game will you play? Why?
 
   

     
 
Indoors...

It’s the beginning of a night at a beaver colony and you’re asked to run a game straight away. Later, beavers are having a fast-paced dance session. What game will you play? Why?
 
     

     
 
Tired...

Cubs are on a sleepover and have been out all day at a high ropes course. They return quite tired. You’re asked to run a quick game before dinner arrives. What game will you play? Why?
 
     

     
 
Mud!

Scouts are camping in a muddy field after a weekend in camp. As the leaders and patrol leaders take down the tents, you’re asked to run a game for the other scouts. What game will you play? Why?
