Bucket games

Scouts see a series of buckets in a line, they are told that there are treats under the bucket that is exactly 60 ft. away.
They are instructed to stand next to the bucket that they think has the treat.
They will share whatever is under the bucket with everybody else that has chosen that bucket.
No peeking until all have made their choices.
Put 1 or 2 treats (Jolly Ranchers) under all of the buckets but the correct one that has at least 10 treats.
This will teach scouts to stand by their convictions.
This game can be done with distance, compass bearings or even knots.
