Gooey Gobble Game
2 or 3 large marshmallows per scout.
a long string or fishing line per patrol.
Optionally, freeze the marshmallows to make them firm.
Poke a hole through each marshmallow with a skewer and string it onto the line. Put the same number on each line - 16 or 24 for an 8-person patrol.
Tie the string between two trees at about chest height.
Patrols line up at a starting line about 10 feet or so from the strings of marshmallows.
On 'Go' signal, first scout in each patrol runs to his string, eats one marshmallow with hands clasped behind back, then tags next in line.
Repeat for a set time length or until one patrol has eaten all their marshmallows.
Each eaten marshmallow is worth 5 points. Any touching marshmallows with hands takes away 3 points. Any dropped pieces on the ground take away 3 points, unless they are eaten.
