Beetle is an easy game to play in a group, you just need a dice (per table), a copy of this sheet (per person) and a pencil (per person).
If you have a small group, just have one table with everyone together. But if there are a lot of you then split up into tables of even numbers.
The youngest player rolls the dice first then play continues clockwise
You need a 6 (body) to start, when you get it you draw your body on the sheet. You need a leg to be able to draw a wellie and you need ahead to be able to draw a hat or scarf.
It doesn't matter what your girl guide looks like, so have some fun with her. You draw it all in the one box so with this sheet you can have 9 games.
The first player from all the tables to draw a complete beetle shouts BEETLE and scores the maximum 10 points for that round.
Everyone else counts up how many parts they have drawn (one point per part.)
The winner from the round moves UP to the next table, eg. if the winnner is on table four they move up to table five.The person with the LEAST points in each round moves DOWN a table, eg. if they are on table six they move down to table five. Table one's lowest scorer moves to the highest numbered table.
At the end of the Beetle Drive, the winner is the person who has scored the most points over all the games added together. In the event of a tie, the two players with the same number of points is roll a dice and the highest throw becomes the overall winner.
