Webelos/AOL Elective Adventure Requirements: Game Design

This is a preview of the changes to the Cub Scout program which go into effect on June 1 2015. See the BSA Program Updates page for complete information.

Game Design is one of the Webelos/Arrow of Light elective adventures. For the Game Design adventure, Webelos create a game and teach somebody else how to play it. They also learn about Internet safety.

The requirement for this adventure are shown below. Upon completion of this adventure, Webelos will receive a pin.

Requirements for the Game Design Webelos/AOL Adventure

  1. Decide on the elements for your game. Below are four elements that make up a game. These will get you started on what to include in your game design.
  2. List at least five of the online safety rules that you put into practice while using the Internet on your computer or smartphone. Skip this if your Cyber Chip is current.
  3. Create your game.
  4. Teach an adult or another Scout how to play your game.

    Can Webelo 2’s do this for the 2014-2015 year? We have a small group and I’m a little unsure about having 1’s & 2’s together now that things are changing.

    I’m thinking of doing this online and having boys program a game via Scratch. How fun would that be?!

    What are your thoughts on board game (or other physical game) vs. video game? I think the intent is for it to be computer or video game, but the requirements don’t come right out and say that and I’ve seen other scout leaders on different posts say their den created a board game. I’m trying to decide direction for my little den.
