Tail Tally

  • Indoors/outdoors
  • Equipment: 1 rope per Cub, colour coded for each Six; 1 whistle
  • Formation: Scatter

One Cub from each Six is a 'catcher'. All the other Cubs have a 'tail', a length of rope which they tuck into their back pockets. The 'catchers' try to snatch as many tails as possible in a given time. A Cub who loses his tail goes to a 'pen' from which he may be released if the 'catcher' from his Six gives him a tail.

When the leader blows the whistle, the Sixes return to their corners and count their tails, including those that their 'catcher' has snatched.
