I Am Mr. Smith Game
This Game is meant for Boy Scouts.
paper and pencil per scout
4 or 5 adult leaders
chalkboard or flipchart
All scouts are given paper and pencil.
The 5 adult leaders stand at the back of the room.
All scouts sit down facing the front of the room - they may not glance to the back of the room during the game.
The game leader stands at the front of the room.
The game leader writes "Mr. Smith" or "Mr. Jones" or the name of any of the adult leaders on the board.
Each scout writes that name on his paper.
The game leader points to the first adult leader, saying "Number 1?". He replies, "I am Mr. Smith" in a disquised voice.
The game leader points to the next and says, "Number 2?" and he replies. And so on for all adults.
Scouts write down the number of the adult they believe is the real Mr. Smith.
Erase the name on the board and repeat for each of the adult leader names.
Each correct Name - number match is worth 1 point. Tally the total points in a patrol and divide by number of patrol members. Patrol with the highest average points wins.
