This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
notecards and pencil for each patrol
one or more scoring judges
one unbiased game leader
Each patrol leader is responsible for writing down his patrol's answers as well as making sure his patrol's name is on each notecard turned in.

When a question is read, the patrol writes down its answer as quickly as possible. The notecard is then run to the scoring judge.
The judge puts a mark on the first card received to indicate it was turned in first. The judge then checks the answer for accuracy, writes the score on the card, and puts it in a pile for that patrol.
When all the questions have been asked, the scoring judge tallies the scores and gives 5 extra points for every notecard turned in first.

Use as many questions as you have time for and interest remains.
Maybe use 5 questions in a round and award a winner for each round.
Give 1 point for every correct item in a list. It might be better to NOT say the number of items. For example, say, "Name the Beattles" rather than "Name the four Beattles". Astute patrols may just run a blank sheet up to the front quickly if they know a mark for being first turned in is worth 5 points and a completely correct answer is only worth 3 points. Or, do not announce the value for being the first turned in answer.
