Developers and players of iScout, an online and offline challenge for Scouts around the world, join us to talk about the game.
This week, we are joined by Mark and Niels, two of the developers of iScout, which is described thusly:
The game is about creative tasks such as: organize a street race with bicycles and give aeroplane-like safety instructions in a bus. Other people can search the internet for answers to Travel Questions, such as: Go to the paper town from paper towns and Find the country where internet usages decrease. For each Task you complete, you can buy two Travel Questions. The team that answers the most Travel Question right wins the game.
Also joining us is Wilfred, an avid player of iScout, who was in fact the one who brought the game to our attention and organized the interview.
We hadn't previously known much about this game, but it sounds like good fun. If you'd like to register a team, you can still do so — registration will likely be open until March 3rd, or until 430 teams have registered. And yes, there are crests...of course there are crests.
As always, a big thank you to the folks at Scouting Radio for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience. If you're listening to us on Scouting Radio right now, let us know; reach out and get in touch. We'd love to hear from you.
