Game description

Each player has a piece of cloth (life ribbon) tied to their leg. Everyone now tries to remove the others cloth without losing their own. Anyone without a cloth is out of the game.


Instead of a cloth tied to the leg it can also be stuck into the waistband. Anyone without a cloth is out of the game or becomes a prisoner. With this version of the game (instead of tagging, hitting), all possible robbery, capture and prisoner games can be played.


The winner (or winning team) is the one who managed to take all of the opponent’s cloths. Or the winning team is the team with the most prisoners or the attackers of the flag who managed to keep theirs protected
