Mule Relay   Mule Relay Game   Scout Game

This Game is meant for Boy Scouts.
An identical set of items for each patrol.
box or backpack, flashlight, sleeping bag, big rock, hat, whistle, pencil, ... anything at all ranging in different sizes and weights.
Just make sure that a person will be able to carry the entire load.
Put all items for each patrol in separate piles on the ground about 40 feet from the start line.
It may be beneficial to reflect on how choosing items intelligently may reduce the amount of work required and the ease with which items are transported.
Patrols line up at start line.
On 'GO' signal, patrol leader runs to pile and chooses one item to bring back. He also must choose the name of one item to pass on to the next scout.
When the patrol leader returns, he hands what he has to the next scout and tells him the name of the item he must pick up.
Each scout runs to the pile, picks up the item they were told and adds it to their load. He then picks the name of another item to tell the next scout to pick up.
This continues until a patrol returns with all their items to the starting line.
If an item is dropped, the scout has to return to retrieve it.
A returning scout should not talk to anyone except the next scout in line.
