Boy Scouts can now earn a Game Design merit badge

Boy Scouts can now earn a Game Design merit badge

March 7, 2013 | By Frank Cifaldi




The Boy Scouts of America are ready to introduce a new merit badge encouraging children to learn the art of game design.

The new Game Design badge requires Scouts to design a game from scratch in their own design notebooks. Scouts "must demonstrate an initial concept, multiple design iterations based on initial testing, and feedback from blind testing." The game can then be prototyped and tested at Boy Scout functions, such as camp outings.

The new Game Design merit badge pamphlet will make its debut at the SXSW Gaming Expo in Austin on Friday.

Upcoming merit badges currently in the works include Programming and Animation.
