Camelot Wide Game
This game was run for up to four teams of four/five at a time, four times a day, four days of the week. It lasted about an hour/hour and a quarter. The four teams started at the same point, the gateway to the campfire at Beaudesert, and finished at the campfire circle. They followed a trail of wool and tracking signs, and carried out the tasks on the way. Each group had a leader or service team member with them to keep them on task if needed, and to make sure they completed the whole trail, since the terrain meant quite a bit of overlapping/doubling back.
has been imprisoned by the wicked knight Mordred at Ivanhoe’s
castle. Mordred has enlisted the help of the wizard Merlin. Your task
is to rescue the Queen.
Follow the trail and carry out your appointed tasks.
:In order to make your counter spell, you need to collect one each
2 : King Pellinore had to follow the Questing Beast. Make a beast out of natural materials and anything else you have with you or find lying around this area. It can be two or three dimensional.
5 : Your group must make its way through the swamp in Indian file. Use the lengths of line to fasten your legs together, then follow the trail. Beware of the crocodiles.
6 : You have reached the river, and must cross it. Unfortunately Merlin has put a spell on the fish and they have become man-eaters. Do not get your feet wet, or the fish will attack! The bridge was washed away in the spring floods, but there is a pile of stones on the bank.
7 : You will need to convince the guard at the castle that you can be allowed to enter. Luckily he is a simple minded fellow and easily convinced! Signal the word ‘friend’ to him in Semaphore. Each person in the group must do this. Then read his reply, and do what he says. (Come in) (Sorry, no flags – arms only)
At the castle the must produce their counter spell ingredients and display their Questing Beasts.
