Scout Jeopardy is an easy game to set up, but is always great fun for
our Scouts to play. It's a simple task to come up with 25 "answers"
(Scouts skills, Oath, Law, merit badges, etc.) and you can use any
kind of noise maker (or even raising hands) for the patrols to compete
for the "questions."
The Senior Patrol is responsible for getting the questions and running
the game, and I believe they have as much fun as the patrols have in
Sometimes, they will use Jeopardy after doing several meetings of
skills instruction as a reinforcement device. Who says learning can't
