If you struggle to come up with original, fun and stimulating games for your young people, or are just looking for some new ideas, then 1,000 Fantastic Scout Games is definitely for you. Designed for scouts, but appropriate for children of any age or persuasion, you will never be without a fantastic game idea. As a Scout Leader I was getting fed up with organising the same old games for my scouts and they were getting fed up with playing them. It was time for a change. I needed loads of games, of all different types, and in one book. I needed some that were quiet, some noisy, some wacky, but most of all I needed games that my scouts would want to play. Sadly that book didn't exist so I set about writing it. 1000 Fantastic Scout Games is the result. There are in fact, with the variations, well over one thousand. Most of these games require, if any, minimal amounts of equipment. Nearly all of the games have been tried and tested by my scouts or some of my friends' scouts. I've tried to make the instructions as clear as possible without rambling on too much. Also I've listed them alphabetically rather than by type. I did try categorising - but failed. Most games belong in several categories. After all, many indoor games can be played outside and vice-versa, with the exception of wet and wide games. Noisy games can be quiet and quiet games sometimes get very noisy, so rather than attempt to categorise them I've just thrown them all in and apologise in advance for the fact that you will have to read through or take pot luck to find what you're looking for, rather than just turn to a particular category. It's therefore designed to be a book to either read through or dip into to find some gems that your group will love to play rather than a prescriptive, "You want a quiet game - here's a list". The games are all ones that ten to fourteen year olds particularly love to play, but nearly all of the games can be played by any age.

The instructions are easy to understand and there is an great selection of games.
Can't fault it and it's already fulfilled the purpose for which it was bought.
We have used some with my Beaver colony and they have gone down a treat.
Useful for those evenings where you are bereft of programme ideas
