a capture-the-flag-like game, played on sports days at schools in Japan. The game,
traditionally played by cadets at the National Defense Academy (NDA) of Japan on its
anniversary, is famous for its size, wherein two teams totalling 150 individuals each vie
for control of a single large pole. Each team is split into two groups of 75 attackers
and 75 defenders. The defenders begin in a defensive orientation respective to their
pole, while the attackers assume position some measure away from the other team's
pole. A team concedes if its pole is brought lower than 30° to the horizontal (beginning
perpendicular, or 90°, to the horizontal). Until a rule change in 1973, the pole had only
to be brought lower than 45° to the horizontal.
a tag-based game, of which red rover is a descendant.Most commonly one or two
players – though this number may be higher in large spaces – are selected to be the
"bulldogs". The bulldogs stand in the middle of the play area. All remaining players
stand at one end of the area (home). The aim of the game is to run from one end of
the field of play to the other, without being caught by the bulldogs. When a player is
caught, they become a bulldog themselves. The winner is the last player or players
'free'.The play area is flexible—it can be played on a street, a playground, between
cloisters, in a large hall or on an area of a playing field—though there is no set size of
the pitch nor set number of players as long as there is enough space for the players
to run about and enough players to have fun.
Capture the flag (CTF) is a traditional outdoor sport where two or more teams each
have a flag (or other markers) and the objective is to capture the other team's flag,
located at the team's "base", and bring it safely back to their own base. Enemy
players can be "tagged" by players in their home territory and, depending on the
rules, they may be out of the game, become members of the opposite team, sent
back to their own territory, or frozen in place ("in jail") until freed by a member of their
a traditional Japanese children's game. The game is similar to the game Red Rover
in the Western world, and is often played in kindergartens and elementary
schools.The name "Hana Ichi Monme" means "a flower is one monme", where a
monme is a historical (Edo period) Japanese coin with a value of 3.75 grams of silver.
Hide-and-seek is a popular children's game in which at least two players (usually at
least three) conceal themselves in a set environment, to be found by one or more
seekers. The game is played by one player chosen (designated as being "it") closing
their eyes and counting to a predetermined number while the other players hide. After
reaching this number, the player who is "it" calls "Ready or not, here I come!" or
"Coming, ready or not!" and then attempts to locate all concealed players.
Jugger is a sport inspired by the 1989 film The Salute of the Jugger (released as The
Blood of Heroes in the United States), in which a game of the same name is played.
The film version was invented by the film's writer-director, David Webb Peoples,
especially for the movie. The transformation into a real sport happened independently
in Germany and Australia.
a contact team sport. Played between two teams of seven players, the objective of
the game is for a single player on offence, referred to as a "raider", to run into the
opposing team's half of a court, tag out as many of their defenders as possible, and
return to their own half of the court, all without being tackled by the defenders, and in
a single breath. Points are scored for each player tagged by the raider, while the
opposing team earns a point for stopping the raider. Players are taken out of the game
if they are tagged or tackled, but are brought back in for each point scored by their
team from a tag or tackle.
a popular tag game invented in Maharashtra, India. It is played by teams of 12
nominated players out of fifteen, of which nine enter the field who sit on their knees
(chasing team), and 3 extra (defending team) who try to avoid being touched by
members of the opposing team. It is one of the two most popular traditional tag
games in the Indian subcontinent, the other being Kabaddi. The sport is widely played
across South Asia and has a strong presence in South Africa and England.
Kick the can (also known as kick the block,guard the block, can can, 40 40, pom
pom, tip the can, tin can copper, and can up can down) is an outdoor children's game
related to tag, hide and seek, and capture the flag, played with as few as three to as
many as several dozen players. The game is one of skill, strategy, stealth, and
physical fitness.The game is played with a kickable object, usually a discarded empty
can, sometimes with rocks inserted for noise. The game was a popular pick-up game
during difficult economic times. The origin is unknown, but during the Great
Depression in the 1930s the game was a popular pastime because it did not require
any designated equipment or playing field.
