Falling Staffs Game
This Game is meant for Boy Scouts.
a scout staff or 5-foot pole for each scout
Everyone stands in a circle, facing inward, with their staff standing on end directly in front of them.
The leader gives a command of "Ready - Right" and everyone must let go of their staff and move to the right, grabbing that staff before it falls.
Or, "Ready - Left" and scouts go to the left.
If someone fails to catch his target staff, he and the staff are out.
When someone moves the wrong way, a collision may occur and remove two scouts at once.
When two are left, they are declared winners or can use some 1-on-1 contest, such as Rock-Paper-Scissor, to determine the ultimate champ.
