Flip a Deck Relay Game
A Favorite Game
This Game is meant for Cub Scouts.
a deck of cards
Up to 4 patrols per deck of cards - use more decks if needed.
Separate the cards into a suit per patrol.
Patrols line up at one end of the play area while their 13 cards are shuffled and laid face down in a line at the other end, about 50 feet away.
On 'GO', first scout in each patrol runs down and flips over one card in his group. If it is the 2, it stays faceup and he flips another. When he flips an out-of-order card, he flips it back facedown and runs back.
The next scout is tagged and runs down, trying to find the 3, then 4, then 5, ...
The winner is the patrol to have all their cards face up and all scouts at the start line.
Communicating which cards are known helps a team work together.
After running through it once, allow patrols to make a plan and try it again.
