A new twist on the classic game
Nobody knows for sure when the game took off as an outdoor activity, but on the how part, thats completely a different story. Capture the flag, originated from ancient battlefield of some deadly wars in history. Casualties are not always the main contribution to winning wars back then. At times, the skirmish settled once the flag are captured. In civil war, soldiers are awarded with medal of honor to those who suceeded in capturing the opponents flag. The same goes to those who suceeded in defending them.
In a dark serene night, facing a vast field of a manmade battlefield, the increasing rate of your heartbeat, guided by only lights at the far end of the field. There, stands your mark.The target that you need to capture at any cost
This sport emulates a war battle situation where traditionally, two teams will fight to defend their respective flags while attempting to capture their opponent’s. Good stamina and some degree of physical fitness is required.
However, often times, the team with the best team strategy wins. AoS puts a spin to this sport and the ‘Capture the Flag’ battles played at the event on 25th February 2017 will have some degree of obstacles, bunkers and multiple teams being released in the battlefield at the same time. Opposing team members will be able to ‘kill’ their opponents in the battle for defence and capture of flags. However, they will also have to look out for ‘Grim Reapers’ who will ‘take their lives’ during the battle.
