Boy Scouts Introduce Video Games Badge


Learning to tie different knots is totally rad and all, but c'mon, we all know what kids really want to do with their spare time, which is play videogames. Now they can do that and earn a Cub Scouts belt loop in the process. For any kids out there reading this, before you get too excited, pay close attention to the second of three requirements:

  1. Explain why it is important to have a rating system for videogames. Check your videogames to be sure they are right for your age.
  2. With an adult, create a schedule for you to do things that includes your chores, homework, and video gaming. Do your best to follow this schedule.
  3. Learn to play a new videogame that is approved by your parent, guardian, or teacher.
That means Boy Scouts, Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts aren't going to be successful in convincing their parents to let them play Grand Theft Auto, but hey, even with the chores thrown in, it's still a better deal than some of the other belt loops, like Textile , right?
