Picture of How to Play Night Stalker,  the Ultimate Glowy  Tag

Night Stalker is a game that is played with up to 200 people.It is a version of flashlight tag. It consists of 2 teams and a monster team who should have no favor of who they want to win. If played correctly this can be an extremely fun game.

Step 1: The Materials

Picture of The Materials

These are the materials required to successfully play the game.
Flashlights (Enough for every player to have one, except for 2 of the monsters)
One fairy or girly costume
One Reaper costume
A Piece of rope (About 3-4 feet long)
Wristbands (2 colors) to identify the teams

This game is best played with 30-200 people

Step 2: Rules

Picture of 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.

Step 3: The Monsters

Picture of The Monsters

The Monster team, is an extra team, not one of the 2 other teams, that consists of 4 people, but only 3 separate monsters.
The Good Fairy (the one wearing the feminine clothes)
The Reaper (the one in the Reaper Costume, a simple cloak would work)
And The Flippity-Floop (2 People tied together by the hands with the piece of rope)

The Good Fairy rescues people from jail randomly (no preference of teams) He cannot be captured

The Reaper is like a player, he gets easy targets and gets as many people are in his flashlight beam (He isn't limited to one person at a time, like normal players are) It takes 5 people shining their flashlights on him at one time to capture him, and therefor he counts as 5 people when he is in jail

The Flippity-Floop runs around scaring people, if you try to capture them by shining your flashlight on them, you go to jail

As you all probably know, it is hard to explain a complex game such as this by writing it out. So if you have any questions, i am very good at this game, and would love to answer them.

You stole the idea from me! The name is mine, the idea is mine! Look at my instructable! It's made before yours by a good amount!

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

Yes, The reaper is unaffected by flashlights until there are 5 of them on him at once

ItsTheHobbs (author)2008-07-15

Yes. It definitely sounds fun.

jesusxisxwatching (author)2008-08-19

this game seems awesome I will definitely get it started as a trend if you want me too. I'm sure if we play it at summer camp it will spread.

yeah, thanks man :D

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.*

shammallamaman (author)Vicious2008-08-18

oh, that's cool, it is a lot of fun

flakeparadigm (author)2008-08-11

Neat. Sounds like fun.

bubbaflamm (author)2008-07-24

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?

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

stinkymum (author)2008-07-15

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)stinkymum2008-07-20

oh, cool, yeah it is a lot of fun, what were the differences between the ame you played and this one?

stinkymum (author)shammallamaman2008-07-21

It was similar to the the Alien game

llamadebama (author)2008-07-14

its sounds like a lot of fun! how would you get 200 people?

i have played it at summer camp before, i guess you could have an extremely large party ;-)
