Game Details

Capture the Flag

How to Play

Choose 2 teams and divide the play area in half. Use the front yard and back yard, or mark a centre line in a large area.

Each team hides a flag on its own side.

The objective is for the players on 1 team to capture the other team’s flag and take it back to their own side without being tagged.

If tagged by an opponent on the opponent’s side, a player must go to the opponent’s time-out area and can only be freed when tagged by a teammate.

When rescued, both players get a free walk back to their own side.

The game ends when all players from 1 team are captured, or 1 team’s flag is captured and brought safely to the other team’s side.

Change the Fun

In its territory, each team builds a snowman with a coloured snowball on top of its head. Colour the snowballs with food colouring and water. Instead of a flag, each team tries to capture the opposing team’s snowball and take it back to their own side without being tagged.

Each team plays with more than 1 flag or snowball.
