Game: Blind Square

Materials: 50-foot rope for each patrol, blindfolds for each Scout.

Method: All patrol members are blindfolded and a 50-foot rope is thrown on the ground next to them. They are then instructed to make a square, using the full length of the rope lying on the ground next to them. No other instructions are given. 

If you do not have a 50-foot rope, you can use lengths of rope and instruct them to tie the ropes together with a square knot.  In this case it is recommended to use an odd number of ropes so that the patrol doesn't simply use the knots as the corners.

Note: This can be a very challenging activity! Circle-up/pick-up
