Game Design Merit Badge

BSA's latest new merit badge, GAME DESIGN, is now available for Scouts to earn.  BSA released the requirements for the new badge on March 6, 2013.

The US Scouting Service Project has posted a copy of the requirements, and a note to counselors from the merit badge pamphlet, along with a workbook we prepared (with some input from BSA staff) that Scouts can use to help organize their work, at Although the workbook can help, Scouts will also need to create a Game Design Notebook to document their work as they create a new game, test it with others, and make modifications as they continue development.

BSA is also distributing a flyer to publicize the new badge. The flyer includes the full text of the requirements. Click here to see a copy of the flyer.
