Under Siege

This works better with a large play area. This is a war version of a 4 way capture the flag. The camp is divided into 4 sections by colors. Each team has a general who has the “flag” the other teams are trying to get, in their back pocket. Every player must have a visible sock or bandana in their back pocket. To identify the team players, a piece of your team’s colored yarn will be on your wrist. If you are in another team’s territory, a player on the opposing team may pull their sock and will have to go to their team’s jail. Jailers can be rescued just like in capture the flag where your teammate can rescue and get a safe walk back. Once a team captures a flag the other team is out (or joins their team). The flag is then placed with their own flag so they have two. Play until one team has all the flags.
