Introduction: Ninja Tag

Picture of Ninja Tag

This is my first instructable so be nice. Ninja tag is a game that I made up that is played in the dark and it is very fun to play. It is a combination of tag and ninja awesomeness.

Step 1: Players

Picture of Players

You need at least 6 people to play and there is no maximum number. There are 2 types of players, ninjas and civilians. Ninjas wear ninja uniforms and civilians wear street clothes. There should be a ratio of 5 ninjas to 1 civilian.

Step 2: Weapons

Picture of Weapons

Any type of ninja weapons will do but they have to be padded (except wooden swords). Airsoft guns are allowed as long as they are spring pistols and you have 1 mag with 20 rounds or less. No scopes or laser aimers. Hand to hand combat is allowed.

Step 3: Outs

You are out when you are hit with a weapon, spotted by a civilian, tag a civilian, or get knocked down in hand to hand combat. When you get out you shout out and crumple to the ground in a dishonored heap and wait for the end of the round.

Step 4: Thats All Folks!!

 Wouldn't a gun defeat the purpose of being a ninja???

lmsvv (author)bendog382012-04-16

this isn't Naruto ninjas use all weapons its called kayakujutsu the technique of pyrotechnics

bendog38 (author)lmsvv2012-04-24

What the heck is Naruto?! Well, anyway, I do know now that pyrotechnics is in the arsenal of the ninja. I did the research a couple of weeks ago. Quite interesting really. Any info you can give me on the subject would be helpful. The extent of my research was books and wikipedia. Thankfully more books than wikipedia, but the damage is done and I probably got some bad information from that site. Thanks.

No, guns need skill. And it's dark, airsoft guns have a very short range, you need to use the iron sights, and most spring pistols have very poor iron sights.

chopstx (author)bowmaster2010-05-15

Guns dont need skill; just a finger to pull the trigger. Good airsoft guns can shoot 100+ feet accurately. You DONT need to use iron sights, and what's so poor about iron sights?

bowmaster (author)chopstx2010-05-16

Also, it's dark so you can't see anything. You try shooting a crouching, mansized target with a $20 walmart spring gun at 100 feet when it's pitch black. If you can do it, post a video.

bowmaster (author)chopstx2010-05-17

Only spring pistols are allowed. RTFM.

chopstx (author)bowmaster2010-05-18

What is RTFM?

bowmaster (author)chopstx2010-05-18

Read The F**king Manual.

chopstx (author)bowmaster2010-05-19

What manual?

bowmaster (author)chopstx2010-05-19

The manual to the game. (this instructable)

thebeef2 (author)2010-02-26

 What?!?!?!?!  Ninjas don't use guns because ninjas don't NEED guns!  They can turn invisible.

commanderzhao (author)thebeef22011-04-11

ninja's use all weapons

444fox (author)thebeef22010-02-26

Great idea
played in a forest at night with my ninja friends
used wooden swords and rubber shuriken
we have the cool Giko suits and padded armour 
so not to much pain
thanks a lot

JermsG (author)2010-02-25

We used to do something similar in Medieval Enactment, but with different weapons and less sneaky.

bowmaster (author)JermsG2010-02-25

It is pretty sneaky,

joeofloath (author)2009-11-12

That opening picture looks remarkably like something from the ultimate ninja series (NOT naruto ultimate ninja)... GREAT movies, but for all the wrong reasons. Youtube them ;)

ilpug (author)2009-10-29

 the sword the real ninja is holding is actually a cheap replica available online.

other wise, awesome ible.

bowmaster (author)ilpug2009-10-29

I know.

Tugashi (author)2009-09-17

I hate to be a hater, but this is a very good way to get seriously injured. i feel if you were to change the weapons it would be safe. Also, guns of any kind are kinda un-ninja like. this is because ninjas killed silently and guns arn't all that silent. but i like the over all idea. :D

gatsaymeow (author)2009-08-29

no offence but havingg padding on anything sharp won't work, it will simply cut through the foam...might I reccomend belegarth weapons on

cronama (author)gatsaymeow2009-09-17

im shure he's talking about foam blades

bowmaster (author)gatsaymeow2009-08-29

Or put a hard plastic strip over the sharp part then put foam over that.

gatsaymeow (author)bowmaster2009-09-01

you stilll couldn't really put too much force in it..not to be critical on the subject

blubbersmith (author)2009-08-18
spiritwolf7984 (author)2009-01-21

Any one else notice there headbands are folded up bandanas I think so please tell me if im wrong Ps yes i know this was totally pointless

noah1r (author)spiritwolf79842009-08-16

you are right.

yeah it is a folded bandana

anslesea (author)2009-08-01

ninjas actually preferred their bokken as their swords were made of the crap

bowmaster (author)anslesea2009-08-05

It depended. If you were a ninja and could steal a good sword like a wakishi or katana(mis-spelled, I know.) wouldn't you?

anslesea (author)2009-08-01

why is the ninja holding a european styled sword geographical FAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Camisado (author)2008-09-19

I'm really sorry to say this, and I'm not meaning to be rude, but it seems that you have very little to no ninja knowledge. First of all, The sword a ninja uses is called a Ninjato, a straight edged not-as-sharp shank version of the Katana. The sword the Ninja on the first pic is holding is not a Ninjato, as it doesn't have Tsukamaki and it's tsuba is very inaccurate. And ninjas NEVER wear red headbands. And airsoft guns?! WTF?! I think it's very basic knowledge that ninjas never use guns. In other words, please use this info i gave u and fix this i'ble. Thank you.

Joshinator (author)Camisado2008-10-24

dude it's a game!! Your way to harsh (and it's pretty nerdy you know that!)

Camisado (author)Joshinator2008-10-24

Still! He should have changed the title to something else! And me? Nerdy? Sorry kid, how many swords do you happen to have? I happen to have AT LEAST 7.

Pie Ninja (author)Camisado2009-06-07

Owning a sword does not compare to knowing how to use one.

Camisado (author)Pie Ninja2009-06-08

What makes you think I couldn't use one?

bowmaster (author)Camisado2009-06-08

Your picture.

Camisado (author)bowmaster2009-06-09

What about it?
