Hi, this is Robert Stewart with hill13.com.
Now we’re going to talk about a game that restricts the conventional game rules in Capture
the Flag to the opposing forces. One side will be attacking; the other side will be
defending. So, the general rules one through three apply, but the field is basically set
up where the defenders have a flag station and a flag. They are restricted to a defined
area around their flag station. They must remain in that for the duration of the game,
and depending on the number of players, it can run from fifteen to twenty minutes usually.
The attackers can attack from anywhere on the field. The attacker?s objective is to
simply retrieve the flag. If they retrieve the flag they win. The defenders objective
is to deny that flag to the attacking forces. Now, this is another one of those games where
you have to think about your objective, and pattern your tactics accordingly. If you’re
defending, you really are trying to run the clock out; that is your objective. And if
you’re attacking, even if you lose some of your teammates getting the flag, that is your
only option for success, so you have to play very aggressive ball.
