Tribble Hunt Game
This Game is meant for Cub Scouts.
This Game should be done Outside.
100 to 200 crumpled balls of paper
1 large balloon
large paper shopping bag for each patrol
Save junk mail and used printer paper until you have 200 sheets.
Crumple each sheet into a 2 or 3 inch ball. Using colored paper might be more fun.
Distribute the paper across the wide play area. Hide the balloon especially well.
Best played in an area with tall grass, bushes, and trees rather than a mowed yard. Be sure it's ok to trample the area.
Last night, the tribbles invaded. They are all over the place and will continue to replicate unless we capture them all. We especially need to find and capture the King Tribble.
In patrols, or pairs, scouts hunt for tribbles. The patrol that collects the most by the end of play time, wins.
An extra reward for whoever brings in the King Tribble.
