Save London   Save London Game   Scout Game

This Game is meant for Cub Scouts.
This Game should be done Outside.
Coffee can
pinecones, beanbags, pebbles, or other small 'bombs'.
Bombers are attacking London and British fighter pilots need to scramble to stop them.

Divide into two teams, keeping patrols together.

Place the coffee can in a large, open area and draw a 20 foot radius circle around it. This is London air space and the protective fighter pilots may not enter this space.
Draw another circle 20 feet out from the first circle, a 40 foot radius.

The fighter pilot team encircles London, anywhere outside London air space, waiting for the bombers to attack.

The bomber team has a pile of 50 or so bombs across the play area from London. Each bomber picks up a single bomb and attempts to drop it on London (into the coffee can).

The fighter pilots intercept the bombers by chasing them and tagging them. When tagged, a bomber must hand over his bomb. If he is inside the outer circle, the fighter pilot must grab his arm and escort him outside the outer circle before intercepting any other bombers. (this prevents fighters from making a tight circle, tagging every bomber.) Bombers that lose their bomb return to base to pick up a new bomb.

A bomber that enters London air space without being intercepted can drop his payload and return to base for another run.

Play until 10 or 20 bombs have hit London or 10 minutes have elapsed. Then, switch sides and see which team best saves London.
