Capture the Flag! Enough said. Who's in?

never played? can you run? Then you're good!! 
show up ready to laugh and run and steal the flag! Capture the flag and return it to your own team's territory without getting tagged into temporary jail.  



Attendees will be broken down into two teams by the host group: IAV  (Improv Anywhere Vancouver) 

Each team will have it's own flag. May the best team win!
____________

I have been participating in events with Improv Anywhere Vancouver for some time now. I usually want to go off and be silly and do my own thing, push my own boundaries, break down my own walls and remember how to play.  I'm now sharing it with you. 

Capture the flag is simply a 'more the merrier' game. With enough people you have jailbreaks , guard strategies, and team work of the sneakiest fashion :)
Come and join us for some real 3d interactive fun!! put the board games away for a few hours and come out and play a moving piece :)
Get in the game
Come out and play!!

This game is hosted by IAV, not meetup. I am sharing my invitation with members of ESV to join me and them, with respect. :) Good sportsmanship is important to our reputation. I am hopeful that I won't regret extending this invite to all of you. 

 From Host: "Missed the first game? Join us for round 2! The object of the game is for players to make their way into the opposing team's territory without being tagged. The flag is defended mainly by tagging opposing players who attempt to take it. Within their own territory, players are "safe", meaning that they cannot be tagged by opposing players. Once they cross in to the opposing team's territory, they are vulnerable..." Check out some pics from July 27th's #CTF event here -> http://ow.ly/zFeq0 #Standupandplay

    Before I update the attendance list, let me know if you did not receive a 'good to see you email' and you showed up. This means you have been marked awol ;) drop me an email from my member page if this is incorrect or you would like to tell me why you no show to add a modifier to the attendance list :) enough people want to play that people reserving spots that they don't use is unfair do I'm doing my best to avoid that. Thanks again all for your understanding. :)

      For the no-shows, please be aware if you bail again without proper notice you may not sign up a third time. It won't be allowed. We count on numbers to plan. We had tonnes of fun but I had no need to close rsvp's if you weren't going to come. You may have prevented someone else from joining in. I'm sure you all understand why that can't happen. Thank you for your understanding. Anyone who did not get checked off on my attendance list should let me know. Yes. I keep an attendance list for certain events and i did ask you all to stay current.

      Marc, I didn't realized that you had already 'liked' the 'optional coffee' post, before I yanked it and re-edited it. Sorry. LOL

  • Tammy S

    i haven't been able to be too physical this year. I haven't run much or done much and expect to be out of breath and possibly jailed repeatedly, but I am SOOOOOO looking forward to this foray back into the physical! It's going to be a blast!!
    The more people that come out, the more fun the game is for everyone!

    tell your friends, check your calendars and rsvp.

    ** ROUND #2! -> LAST UPDATE: 2014/07/28 **

    HOW TO PLAY/ RULES:
    1) #CTF is played on an outdoor "playing field". The field is divided into two halves, knows as territories. Players form two teams, one for each territory. Each side has a "flag".

    2) The object of the game is for players to make their way into the opposing team's territory without being tagged. The flag is defended mainly by tagging opposing players who attempt to take it. Within their own territory, players are "safe", meaning that they cannot be tagged by opposing players. Once they cross in to the opposing team's territory, they are vulnerable.

    3) The flags are generally placed in a visibly obvious location at the rear of a team's territory.

    4) The game is won when a player returns to his own territory with the enemy flag.
