Wide game


large rope about 50 to 100 meters. coloured wool for each patrol.


played in a wooded area best in the dark but can be also played in daytime.
A string is set up in a wooded area like a string trail between 50 and 100 meters this is the wire and is guarded the attackers have to get to the wire and attach a length of wool this can be one colour per attacker or patrol colours.
If a guard tags an attacker they hand over the wool and return to base for another length.
At the end of the game you count up the wool on the wire minus the wool the guards have tied to a stave held by a leader each game lasts about 30 minutes before we count up the wool and change defenders
