Only a month after the Boy Scouts brought in a badge for "Games Design", the Girl Scouts are offering one for "Games Development".
Two years ago, the Cub Scouts offered their version of a merit badge for video gaming. This week, the Boy Scouts of America added the 131st merit badge to its active list: Games Design.
Scouting is no longer just about the outdoors - roughing it, blowing up a can of beef stew in a campfire or drinking kool-aid that tastes like chewable aspirin. The Cub Scouts are now awarding pins for video games.
