A Game of Chance

The element of chance in this game is so appealing to Scouts that they sometimes play it on their own initiative, especially while resting on a hike or in camp.

The Matching

To start the game one of the players, preferably the one with the fewest leaves, holds up a leaf and names it. The leader declares it either right or wrong. If right, all players who have that leaf hold it up by the stem, and when the leader says, "Ready - Spin!" they all spin their leaves, then let them fall to the ground. All leaves which do not match (top or under side) the leaf of the original player must be handed over to him. All players who match him retain their leaves.

Tip

A leader familiar with trees can get in some teaching by following up chance remarks. For example, someone may hold up a leaf and say, "Here is some kind of maple." The leader promptly joins in, names the species and talks briefly about its distinguishing features.
