A New Take On An Old Favorite: Capture The Flag
Battlefield LIVE-themed Electronic "Capture the Flag" Game has quickly become a super popular game. Reminiscent of childhood tag games, or paintball games this Capture the Flag is challenging and fun.
Play with roughly equal team sizes. Teams start at opposite ends of the battlefield. Suitable for beginners, intermediate and advanced gamers.
Because this game is great for CQB it can be played indoors or on a mobile field. But it also plays well outdoors. Teams receive unlimited respawns from their own team’s Battle Box set as a medic box. The team with the least number of respawns plus any dead at mission end wins.
This mission is a great game to play after your warm-up/ice-breaker because every gamer plays the entire duration of the scenario. You might play a Team Death Match or the Domination Game first then go on play Electronic Capture the Flag as a follow-up.
It is a terrific game for players with a lot of energy!
The aim of the game is to collect as many virtual flags as possible. Usually, you play team alpha versus team bravo. In other words in a two-team format.
With this live gaming system, you can play up to 7 teams. All teams fight for victory. Whichever way the team will need to work together to achieve success.
Unlike the traditional paintball Capture the Flag game, there is not just one material flag. Rather these flags are virtual and there can be more than one virtual flag in play at any one time. To score on flag point, you need to run to the enemy's flag box and shoot it. This is a Battle Box set as a Flag Box. It will issue a sound effect "Flag Captured!".
So the gamer knows they have acquired one virtual flag. The player then needs to run back to their team's base and shoot their own flag box. This counts as one flag point. The game can also be enhanced with a Battle Box or Battle Boxes set as a "Supply Crate".
The Capture the Flag game is usually played with two teams: blue vis red or bravo vs alpha.
The mission for both teams is to get to their opposition's base and shoot their Flag Box. That gamer will then have hold of a virtual flag. Then that gamer needs to get back to their own base and shoot their own Flag Box. Thereby gaining one point for their team.
Ideally, gamers will start 65 feet or 20 meters apart and have a series of obstacles (trees or inflatables or whatever) to hide behind.
Each team gets unlimited re-spawns from their base and everyone gets 3 hit points (hits they can take before they must go back and get a respawn). Gameplay includes basic gaming tactics or aiming and avoiding getting hit. The game usually goes for anywhere between 5 to 30 minutes, with an average of 15 minutes. A bigger playing area usually means the games can go longer.
