JamPuz - The JOTA-JOTI Puzzle Game
JamPuz is a key component of JOTA-JOTI and can be used by those participating in JOTA-JOTI using amateur radio and the internet. If you are communicating with other Scouts during JOTA-JOTI then you can take part in JamPuz!
JamPuz (short for Jamboree Puzzle) is a way to swap identity codes with other JOTA-JOTI participants that you interact with during JOTA-JOTI. Each JOTA-JOTI registered group or individual is issued with a JOTA-JOTI JamPuz ID code (known as a JID).
To take part in JamPuz, you will need your JID code, which can be found under the My Account section. To ensure JID is properly generated, you will need to make sure the scout.org account is up to date and that your National Scout Organization and Country are selected.
The principle is simple; every time you make contact with another JOTA-JOTI participant during the JOTA-JOTI weekend, be sure to ask for, and record, their JID; and they will record your JID.
The objective of JamPuz is to make contact with other Scouts (and Guides) and to help participants to record the variety of countries, regions, etc. that they have made contact with. But, contacting fellow Scouts is not simply about the number of contacts you make, it is about conversations. So please spend time actually chatting with your fellow Scouts, not simply collect their JID and then move on to the next contact.
To help you out, we've provided you with 10 Conversation Starters for meeting new friends around the world!
JamPuz is about meaningful conversations.
While playing JamPuz, you are also participating in #Scouts4SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), learning about and creating a better world, and building more peace through friendship! Learn more about how Scouts are contributing 2 BILLION hours towards the SDGs - and how you can get involved - here: sdgs.scout.org.
JamPuz is about having fun!
