The Square Game

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


A "capture the flag" game requiring speed and strategy.


2 "flags", cones or stones for marking.


Try to get the opponents flag back to your territory without being captured. You are safe in your territory, and the opponents base and jail. Captured players can be released from jail. Defend or attack, go alone or on mass. Tactics and strategy, and sometimes some luck, will decide the winner. See attachment.
This game could be suitable for cubs, and possibly beavers, but younger ones might struggle with the strategies, which can involve much patience.
