Pac-Man is an iconic arcade game from the 1980s where the player controls a hungry yellow dot with a big mouth, manoeuvring him through a maze filled with pac-dots while he tries to eat as many as possible and avoid the four ghosts chasing him.
In Urban Pac-Man, the streets become the maze while Scouts take on the roles of Pac-Man and the ghosts, separating into teams and using arm bands to identify which team they’re on. Leaders and volunteers affix homemade pac-dots to benches, railings and other street furniture in the designated playing area, avoiding road signs. The location of the pac-dots can be plotted on a map, which can then be photocopied and distributed to the Scouts to help them in their quest. The game is best played in a local neighbourhood or estate.
