Monthly capture the flag is back! Come out and let your inner elementary schooler play in the park. Don't remember how to play? No worries, we'll go over the rules before the game starts. All you need to do it show up and be ready to play! Afterwards we'll head to a bar and grab some drinks. Things to bring: shoes to run in or cleats, sunscreen, water. Note: this is not competitive, no tackling, shoving, etc. This is posted in 2 groups so expect 30+ players for this fun event! FB: https://www.facebook.com/events/339871763432666/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capture_the_flag Capture the flag (CTF) is a traditional outdoor game where two teams each have a flag (or other marker) and the objective is to capture the other team's flag, located at the team's "base," and bring it safely back to their own base. Enemy players can be "tagged" by players in their home territory and, depending on the rules, they may be out of the game, become members of the opposite team, sent back to their own territory, frozen in place ("in jail") until freed by a member of their own team Overview Capture the Flag requires a playing field of some sort. Whether indoor or outdoor, the field is divided into two clearly designated halves, known as territories. Players form two teams, one for each territory. Each side has a "flag" which is most often a piece of fabric, but can be any object small enough to be easily carried by a person (night time games might use flashlights, glowsticks or lanterns as the "flags"). It is sometimes suggested that teams wear dark colors at night to make it more difficult for their opponents to see them. If one team has the opposing team's flag on their territory they may be tagged because they have the opposing team's flag. The objective of the game is for players to make their way into the opposing team's territory, grab the flag and return with it to their own 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 into the opposing team's territory they are vulnerable. Location The flags are generally placed in a visibly obvious location (but in some variations the flag is hidden) at the rear of a team's territory. In a more difficult version, the flag is hidden in a place where it can only be seen from one angle. It also might have some challenge involved. For example, the flag could be hidden in the leaves up in a tall tree, and the players have to see the flag, then knock it out and bring it to their base.
