Do you remember hours spent playing Capture the Flag as a kid? Back then, you probably went pretty low-tech with your capture the flag games--maybe even just a couple of rags tied to sticks for the flags. Today's generation, however, can take Capture the Flag to a whole new level with this LED Capture the Flag kit. The kit contains everything you'll need to play a high-tech, fast-paced game of capture the flag with a bonus: you can play in the dark for added fun.
The makers of the game are careful to note that you shouldn't play in complete darkness. After all, you don't want to run the risk of players being injured. For this reason, your playing field should be as clear of obstructions as possible. However, the glowing lights of the territory lines and the "orb" that has replaced a more traditional flag provide a level of glowing illumination that make this game most fun after sundown.
Many players recommend playing in the woods or in an area with plenty of obstructions for maximum fun. While this game of Capture the Flag can certainly be played on a more level field, it's a lot of fun when you're creeping through the dark, trying to figure out where the other team has tucked their flag and running and hiding from your friends in the dark.
Yes, that's right: your friends. This LED Capture the Flag kit is the perfect choice for children, of course. Boy Scout troops, youth groups, and other large groups of kids will absolutely love it. Grownups, on the other hand, will take Capture the Flag to a whole new level as they introduce the glowing lights to the fun. This high-tech reprisal of an old favorite will be sure to have your entire family joining in, whether you're 8 years old or 80. Disclaimer: those who are in poor health or in poor shape should use at their own risk and develop their own strategies for dealing with these problems.
The game comes complete with a variety of instructions for multiple variations of the game. Whether you want to kill a few minutes or spend a few hours engaged in rambunctious, boisterous play, this LED Capture the Flag kit will provide your group with all the fun you need. You'll be breathless, laughing, and having more fun than you could have dreamed.
Your Burning Questions Answered
Q: How's the battery life of the product? Should I take out stock in a battery company along with my purchase?
A: As long as you don't tuck your LED Capture the Flag kit away in the top of a closet with the batteries still in it and fail to use it for months at a time, your batteries should hold out for several games before they need to be replaced. If you are storing your game for long periods of time, as with any other electronic device, you should be sure to remove the batteries.
Q: Is this an appropriate game for an adult outdoor party?
A: This is absolutely an appropriate game for an adult outdoor party. It might take some convincing to get things started, but once your friends are engaged in the game, they'll be laughing, excited, and having fun.
Q: What's the minimum age to play this game?
A: The minimum age for the game will depend on the maturity of your children. If they aren't old enough to stay up past dark to play, they probably aren't old enough for Capture the Flag. On the other hand, little ones will have plenty of fun pairing up with a parent and getting into the game, so use your own discretion. Also, don't be afraid to use big eyes and tears to help get out of a sticky spot. Theirs, not yours.
