What You Need to Play CTF Laser Tag

Playing Capture the Flag Laser Tag
Finally, let’s discuss how you will play the game. Now that you’ve grabbed at least four people, stick to these:
- Ideally, a distance of 100 meters or more is where you place the flag. But putting the flags as far away from each other as possible is important.
- Make sure the flag isn’t entirely visible, at least not in the beginning. But the rival team should be able to see it when they get close.
- The game starts with each team positioned within a few meters from their flag. Hence, both teams can stand around 10 feet from their flags.
- Choose a signal to communicate to the other team that you’re ready. It could be a whistle or a text message — your choice.
- Before you start playing, decide on the number of lives each team has. When someone loses all their lives, they’re out of the game.
- The prime reason you’re playing this game is to capture the opponent’s flag and bring it back to your base. Do that! And when you’re on it, avoid getting shot.
- Last one to bring the flag to their base is a loser!
