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 VIA, 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 last game? Join us for round 3! 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..."

RSVP'S
please keep your rsvp current. a bunch of 'no shows' or last minute cancellations would ruin the game. It can also count against you for future attendance rights if you are a no show.  Thanks for your help with this.

      Ok, whatever works. I was just proposing split up the shoreline into grids, then each cleanup group is responsible for a grid or something like that. :D

    • Tammy S

      Thanks Patrick. That is sort of how it's done; each section by a team of 4 or 5 :) and each of those team members has a mini job. It's quite simple. No worries. If youre anxious to pitch in, Maybe you can give me a hand passing out things or helping collect stuff after the class or registering volunteers :)

    would be great if rules and communication be more clear

    1 · September 7

    • Tammy S

      Thanks Stuart. Russel, it's very uncommon that we have to "parent" other adults. On the whole, our experiences are great!! A body or two didn't want to play fair. It happens, but spoiled sports get weeded out pretty quickly. Don't be discouraged from coming ;) If there is an issue, I'm all ears! If subtle doesn't work from the group discord, then watch out for my boot!

      Sorry people, but if you ruin the game for the rest of us (AND ME BECAUSE i SHARED IT WITH YOU), my big mean foot is going to come down in a hurry! Poor sportsmanship won't be tolerated. No worries group. :) Fun is the goal! I do not intend to sit by and let anything wreck it. :)

    • Tammy S

      (and btw.. one of the funniest parts of watching adults playing capture the flag is watching them revert to little children and having fun from a center they forgot was there!.. sometimes kids forget and go too far and just need reminding)
