"Drapeau" (French) "Flag" (English)
[See also "capture the flag". This appears to be a French-Canadian variation, but different enough to warrant it's own listing]
This is a group game, i.e. there should be at least 30 kids for maximum
fun since you need to be divided into two groups. Although it is still
playable with less people. It is not difficult to play, great for 9-13
Description of the game:
The broom stick is inserted in an angle pointing towards the offensive team.
The object of the game:
The defense can be killed only by the "offence police officer" in the center zone.
The offense team CAN go into the defence zone. But the defence team CANNOT go into the offense zone.
If the flag is taken by GOING into the defense zone, then, only 1 point is scored.
NOTE: In order for the scoring to take effect, the player must not move(up & down, wabbling...) the broom stick while running towards his/her safe zone. The stick must be held straight in front of him and high(the hand is at the chin level or about).
Ending the game:
This game is worth trying ... Enjoy!
