  • What equipment do you need to gather to be able to play? 
  • Are you using it as an event?  
  • Do you need to supply guide sheets?  


  • Set up a number of tables / chairs around the room (tables of 4-6) 
  • Each table has paper, pencils and a die.  
  • When the clock starts, each person takes a turn to roll the die. You must roll a six to start.  
  • Start building the tick’s body.  
  • Once you have a full tick drawn, shout Tick and all the games stop.  
  • After each game you move to a new table.  
  • The person with the most Tick’s wins the night.  


  • Do you know all the parts of a Tick?  
  • Can you now draw one?  
  • What do you know now that you didn’t know before?  
  • Remember to submit your activities on our Scouts for Sustainability Take Action Map to the Review section.
