You can be playing this for hours or minutes, you never know!” Submitted by Rachel W.
Divide into two teams and mark the middle of the playing area using a rope or chalk to mark the boundary between the two teams areas. Each team then hides a flag or handkerchief in their half of the playing area. The object is for each team to find/get the other teams flag without getting caught. A player can be caught when they are in the opposing teams area and are tagged by a member of that team. If a player is caught they are sent to a jail on the opposing teams side and are out of the game, unless they are released by a team member who has not been caught. The team that finds the other teams’ flag first wins.
If playing in a large hall or gym, have a circle with few cones at the back of each teams territory in which to put to the flagby
