Capture the flag- cướp cờ

Hello  My name is Minh Nguyet and I’m almost 14 years old. I’m so happy to be able to know all of you. So here is my essay for you to know more about my gorgeous country’s traditional games 

Folk games: Capture the flag

In your childhood, you’ve played so many different folk games such as rock – paper – scissors, tug of war,… But, the most wonderful games I never get bored and still want to play is Capture the flag  Let’s see some details about my favorite games 

Capture the flag, is a traditional outdoor game where two teams have a flag and the object is to capture the other team’s flag, located between 2 teams, and bring it safely back to their own base. Enemy players can be “tagged” by players while they caught the flag back to their base.

Capture the Flag requires a playing field of some sort. Whether indoor or outdoor, the field is divided into two clearly designated halves, known as territories. Players form two teams, one for each territory. Both sides has a “flag” which is most often a red scarf, but can be any object small enough to be easily carried by a person.

The object of the game is for players to make their way into the flag’s location, grab the flag and return with it to their own territory without being tagged. The flag is defended mainly by tagging opposing players who attempt to take it. Within their own territory players are “safe”, meaning that they cannot be tagged by opposing players. Once they cross in to the opposing team’s territory they are vulnerable.
