Game Description

The Patrols are given the staffs, ropes, twine and match. The candle and brick are placed some distance up the hall.

The objective is for the patrol to lash the staffs together with the match at the front, strike the match on the brick and light the candle.


Light the match: This is easier, the candle is lit and the objective is to light the match. We started using this with a younger troop.
