Description

Come along for a fun night at our fundraising Beetle Drive, those of you that have been before will know what a great night is in store. If you have never been to a Beetle Drive before you will not be dissapointed, it can be played by players of all ages.

Tickets are £5 and this includes a Ploughman's and prizes to the winners. The Reppswick arms will be open with their reasonably prices drinks.

A Beetle Drive is a mass game of beetle. Players sit around tables in groups of four. Each player has a sheet usually with 9 or 12 boxes in which to draw their beetles. On "GO" the game starts with each group of players trying furiously to complete their beetles. The minute any player in the room complete their beetle they shout "BEETLE" and the whole room stops immediately.

All players then add up the number of body parts they have added to their own beetle scoring one point for each part to a maximum of 14 for a completed beetle.

The highest scorer from each table then moves to the next table in a clockwise direction whilst the lowest scorer moves anti-clockwise.

When everyone is sitting at their new tables the organiser shouts "GO" another round is played. This continues for up to 12 rounds if time allows. Each player keeps a running total of their scores and at the end of the last round the person with the highest score is crowned Champion / King of the Beetles / Golden Beetle and given an appropriate prize.
