Last Match Game
A Favorite Game
box of wooden matches
Good gathering time game as more can join after each round if you use the alternative method.
Scouts gather around.
Lay out any number of matches in any number of piles, as long as there is at least 2 matches in 2 piles.
Each scout takes a turn removing any number of matches from one pile.
The scout that is forced to remove the last match is out.
Repeat until there is one scout left.
Alternative: The scout that removes the last match is the winner of 1 point.
