knex game Ideas Answered

Post rules on your games here, decide on game modes(eg. capture the flag, Eliminate all, hostages, fortress raid, build on spot etc.) and maybe guns used! Well, these are the rules for a ctf game designed by me. Each team must have at least 3 players Each team has a base. The bases must be of equal size (roughly) and will contain a flag. You are allowed 3 different guns. One must be a pistol, one a rifle of any sort and any other of your choice (you are allowed another pistol or rifle). The guns must all fire the same type of rod. You are allowed up to 30 separate rounds per gun. If the gun has a removeable clip, say 20 rounds each, have 1 clips of 20 and 1 clip of 10. If the gun is single shot, carry 30 rounds. If the gun has an unremoveable mag, reload the mag every time you run out. There is a place to reload, where you can collect 10 rods at a time, and you can't revisit the point until the next round. There are 5 rounds. Each round lasts either until both players are out of ammo, or after 10 minutes. To win a round, a player must capture the other team's flag more times in a round than the opponent. If the round is a tie, then you must keep playing for an extra 2 minutes until one team wins. The flags must be the same size, but may be different colours. After the 5 rounds are up, count up the victories and the team with the most wins. Well that's it, tell me what you think.

i recommend you to use killerk's pistol in your battle since a larger rifle might break, unless its well built

and i dont like killerks pistol. everyone thinks he is a god for making the first knex gun, where he accctually didn't, and it doesn't really shoot that far anyway

I just had a new idea. If enough people like it I'll post it in his group with more details. Ok so an amount of teams (I'd say 2 for the best) would each recieve so many knex pieces and rubberband supplies. They then have a half hour to 1. Make all their weapons 2. Build def. 3. Plan So then you could have 3-5 people per team and there would be a bit of strategy. There can be few pieces so that you would have to use them wisely or there could be just enough so that you would decide what you would put the extra pieces towards. You can see this requires strategy as you would have to assign people to make something like instead of having everyone make their own gun make two of then "gun smiths" where they have to make their own original design but are free to replicate it. Then you could have others set on building a wall or knex armor. As for rules I'll post those if people like my idea.

I think that, "build all their weapons" is a great idea.

That game is really complicated. My only advice can be the more the better - people/playing area.

Not to be rude but this could be so much better. I would say you could use any ammo you wish for one thing. Then I would say you have the choice of 2 guns to carry at a time- a side arm and a main weapons doesn't matter what. Then you are aloud to swap out weapons of the same classification each round. For shooting I take it one hit your out or one hit you respawn at a certain point. The ammo thing works except I might change the numbers and then maybe your side arm can have more. Also I would prefer to say that each round ends after a flag has been captured. Or you could make it where you have to have both flags in your possession right near each other. While you do you time how long they are in your possession and also you are not allowed to carry more than 1 flag. I might fix up some more rules later.

yeah i was thinking on it but honestly even though we all get a lot of cool ideas I don't want the knex forum to be flooded by a wave of knex games from us starting something. I think we should post a "knex game ideas" topic where we can all share our ideas however.

i think you forgot something, what are the guns for in the game? also, the rule about the guns having to shoot the same type of rod is pointless. even real guns do not all shoot the same ammo. my rifle does not even shoot rods.

well here's a good twist then. All your guns muts be thought up and built by you otherwise all we would see is killerk pistols and who knows what else.

so if you use instructables, I for example couldf use my storm 220, you could use your AK47, Uzi, and MP44, or do you have to make them upon the spot?

You would use whatever guns you have available as long as they are completly yours or at least over half modified from someone elses. I guess if you had an instructable you could make then on the spot but even for some small weapons that takes like 10 minutes. That is another good twist though you have 10-30 minutes to make an originaly gun on the spot to use for your next battle. I would have a great arsenal there a semi auto gun and then I'm working on making a better side arm than my uzi.

im just saying that pistols would be easier to have battles with since their usually more reliable, and for power, add the black tip like killerk. rifles that aren't structurally strong would tend to break. I've had a battle with my cousin before and i broke my gun.
