Step 2: Rules

You have 2 teams that are both trying to get all of the other team in jail. When this happens or when 45 min. is up you count the number of players in each of the team's jails, the team that has more of the opposite team in their jail wins that round. This game is played in a series of 3 rounds. The Best 2 out of three wins.

At the beginning of the game you choose a queen, who is your leader. The only other way to win, besides capturing all of their players, in a round is to capture the other team's queen. Your team's queen must capture somebody before you can capture the other teams queen (this prevents you from hiding your queen)

The way you capture somebody is to shine your flashlight on them. You then walk them to your jail, during this time, you are safe from getting captured. You can not get out of jail until the next round, unless you are taken from jail by the Good Fairy.

I am definitely not the creator of this game, but mine was actually published before yours by a couple months, mine was july 13th and yours was november 1st, plus they seem to be different games, besides the basic concept and the name

I have played something similar, no monsters though. Also the only way to free someone is with two people 'tagging' (not with light but a physical touch) the dead/jailed person. Then you had your leader person who was identified prior to starting the game. Only leader could kill a leader (I had watched too much Highlander when I thought of it) but if a normal player light-tagged them, then they had to count down from 15. While counting, they could not tag anyone or be tagged, it's like a limbo state. The games I did had around 50-75 people and we were in a park. We use the football goals as the jail. People could use camo or any type of outfit to hide themselves with. However the game does get a lot more interesting when it's at a college campus and everyone is drunk or tipsy.*

Could you explain the roll of the monsters a bit more? do they have a jail? what do you mean 4 people but only 3 separate monsters?
shammallamaman (author)  bubbaflamm6 years ago
the monsters do not have a jail, they take their prisoners to the other team's jail, and you need 4 people to play 3 monsters because the flippity floop takes 2 people to play it

I have played a slightly similar game to this as part of a scavenger hunt held on a ball field on the edge of some woods at night. It is a lot of fun.
shammallamaman (author)  stinkymum6 years ago
oh, cool, yeah it is a lot of fun, what were the differences between the ame you played and this one?
It was similar to the the Alien game
