Fun & Games: Capture the Flag
This game is most fun when played with a large group.
Split the group into two teams, each team having a coloured flag or other marker at the team’s base.
The object of the game is to run into the other team’s territory, capture their flag and make it safely back to your own territory.
You can tip “enemy” players in your territory, sending them to your jail. They can be sprung from jail by a member of their own team running into your territory, tagging them and running back, with one freed person allowed per jail break.
It is sometimes played that all the people in jail could hold hands and make a chain back toward their own territory, making it easier for members of their team to tag them.
If you don't have a flag handy then you can also play with sticks in the garden. Use the same rules but you can use several sticks instead of just one flag.
Number of Players: A large group.
What you need: Two flags or other markers or you can use sticks
