   Another game the scouts like a lot, which is not a game from the BSA,
   is "Bop Sticks." This game requires quite a bit of preparation,
   however.
   
   You will need:
     * 2 lengths of PVC pipe, 7' X 1"
     * Lots of foam padding
     * Even more duct tape
     * Two old tennis balls
     * Two football helmets (or other helmet with a face guard)
       
   Cut the tennis balls in half and tape each half securely to the ends
   of the PVC pipe. Wrap every square inch of the pipe in foam, and
   secure with tape. When finished, you should only be able to see tape.
   The balls and foam should be covered in tape.
   
   The scouts wear the helmets and attack each other with the stick they
   are wielding. A hit to a limb results in the loss of the limb. A hit
   to the neck results in decapitation - you're dead. Two hits to either
   the body, the head, or both result in death. Loss of a limb results in
   just that.
   
   Naturally, if both legs are gone, you can't run away, and if both arms
   are gone, you can't wield a stick. It's fun to watch the scouts
   hopping around on one leg in their big, bulky helmets while swinging a
   rather awkward "sword" with one hand. You can have tournaments. Kind
   of SCAish, but not really.
