bulletRequires Two Leaders

The party game of Twenty Questions which is heard on radio broadcasts, may be applied to Boy Scout nature subjects, such as mammal, bird, reptile, fish, tree, shrubs, edible wild plant, etc. It requires two leaders, one of whom helps the Scouts select a subject, while the other, the questioner, is out of the room beyond hearing distance.

The group decides upon a nature subject which the questioner is to name after asking and receiving the answers to twenty questions. The leader in charge tells the Scouts all he can about the object selected, at the same time encouraging the boys to add further information. Then he calls in the questioner.

For teaching purposes the questioner should pretend to be thinking aloud, commenting upon a question before putting it to an individual.

Only the Scout to whom the question is assigned is allowed to answer. He responds by saying either, "Yes," "No," or "I don't know." If he says he does not know, or if his answer is wrong, that particular question does not count against the questioner, and the leader should immediately correct all errors or the questioner will be thrown off-track. Following is a description of the game applied to trees.
