International games from different countries:
Take a tour around the globe and play games from different cultures and countries. What can you learn from them?
Ticket to Ride (North-America): make up your own game where Scouts need to connect different placces on a map with a railway line. They need to do tasks to build the railway connection. When it is finished they start selling tickets to other Scouts to travel on the train. With the “money” they can build new railway lines, and so on. Which patrol is the first to connect continents? Trains Scout ingenuity, creativity and negotiation skills. For inspiration:

Carcassonne (Europe): In this game, players draw square tiles with a piece of French landscape on it, with things like parts of cities, roads and other features bleeding off each edge, and take turns placing them into a connected landscape next to other players’ tiles. You earn points by placing your one of your tokens–called “meeples,” each player has eight of them–onto a tile as it’s played, claiming the road or city (or anything else) for yourself. There’s a good bit of strategy (and a bit of good old-fashioned stealing) involved in where you place your tiles, and some resource management involved in where and for how long you tie up your meeples. It works like this::
