Short description

How good do you really know your scout friends? Enough so you know them by shadow?


Hang a sheet across the living room, place a single candle on a table behind it, and turn off the lights. Have one person act as the guesser and sit in front of the sheet while others walk between the sheet and the candle. The guesser has to find out who is who by shadow alone. Up the difficulty with different costumes.
