Introduction: 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

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

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

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

Step 4: If You Have Any Questions, Please Add a Comment Here.

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.
