Capture the Flag Rules

The object of the game is for a player to bring their flag that is placed on their opponent’s side back to
their side. There are several ways to do this. One is for a player to retrieve their flag from their
opponent’s side and bring their flag back to their side with their flag still attached to their waistband.
Another way to score a touchdown would be to have a player throw the flag to a teammate that is on the
opponent’s side and then travel whatever the distance necessary to get back on his or her side. A team
gains a point when they intercept the flag. As soon as a player in the flag zone picks up the flag, they are
no longer safe in that zone. Also, if the flag is not in the zone it is no longer safe territory for a player to
enter without the chance of getting tagged. Once a person’s flag is removed by a competitor player he or
she must report to jail. A player can free their teammate from jail by crossing over into the opponent
territory to reach the jail and touch their teammate to release them. Once a teammate has safely gotten to
jail, everybody has free walk backs.
