    Videogame pins, belt loops for Cub Scouts introduced

    Some new Cub Scout info came up on wii.qj.net. Cub Scouts now have Video Game Merit Badges? WTF...




    Know a Cub Scout? Give him a video game and help him earn a pin. Apparently the Boy Scouts of America have come up with a new Cub Scout merit pin and belt loop earned by playing video games.

    To get the video game belt loop, a Cub Scout must complete the following tasks:

    • Explain why it is important to have a rating system for video games. Check your video games to be sure they are right for your age.
    • 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.
    • Learn to play a new video game that is approved by your parent, guardian, or teacher.

    The slightly older Webelos have it a bit tougher. They must first earn the belt loop above and then do the following to earn their academic pin:

    • With your parents, create a plan to buy a video game that is right for your age group.
    • Compare two game systems (for example, Microsoft Xbox, Sony PlayStation, Nintendo Wii, and so on). Explain some of the differences between the two. List good reasons to purchase or use a game system.
    • Play a video game with family members in a family tournament.
    • Teach an adult or a friend how to play a video game.
    • List at least five tips that would help someone who was learning how to play your favorite video game.
    • Play an appropriate video game with a friend for one hour.
    • Play a video game that will help you practice your math, spelling, or another skill that helps you in your schoolwork.
    • Choose a game you might like to purchase. Compare the price for this game at three different stores. Decide which store has the best deal. In your decision, be sure to consider things like the store return policy and manufacturer’s warranty.
    • With an adult’s supervision, install a gaming system.

    So actually, it's not just a simple matter of sitting on a couch and playing to your heart's content. According to the Boy Scouts of America, the constant adult supervision required and the non-playing aspects of it are there to show kids that while it is widespread, gaming is still just a small part of our lives.

    "Let's be serious: the kids are already into video games," said Boy Scouts of America spokesperson Renee Fairrer.

    "You can't sit on the couch for 13 hours a day and play video games. We want to get them when they're that Cub Scout age, when they have that strong parental influence, to be able to make those decisions."
