Games night started seriously with a discussion about the events in Paris. We talked about the detail of the attacks and the experience of victims and survivors. Exploring what drives people to such acts was challenging with Scouts understanding the conflict between empathy, compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, justice, crime and punishment. It's a complicated world!
Changing the mood we switched to a shortened Games night. Scouts had brought in their favourite games to share. From the selection available we ended up playing Cluedo, Pigs and 4 handed chess. For those who don't know this involves four players in two teams and a rotating chess board. Very confusing for old brains so leaders as always comprehensively beaten.
