Submarine Patrol

All the Scouts are standing in a line one behind the next. Each time the first boy says his line to the second boy. The second boy repeats it to the third. This continues until it reaches the last boy in the back. The boy in the back then replies. This message gets relayed to the front in a similar fashion. First, to last- Lower periscope (the last boy flips a switch) Last to first- Periscope lowered (the first boy turns his hat backward and looks through the periscope) First to last- Fire torpedo 1 (the last boy flips a switch) Last to first- Torpedo 1 away. First, to last- We missed. Last to first- Darn! First, to last- Fire torpedo 2 (the last boy flips a switch) Last to first- Torpedo 2 away (All the boys get into a football huddle, arms interlocked) Altogether- "We sunk a rowboat! We sunk a rowboat!"
