Description and organisation

This game is inspired by the Star Wars films. It requires a large playing field. Divide the group into 2 teams—the Empire and the Rebel Alliance. Each team has a base at opposite ends of the field. Players cannot be eliminated while in their own base, but can be eliminated when they are in the enemy base. The Empire has the plans to the Death Star (a ball or piece of cardboard).

The idea is simple. The Rebels try to get the Death Star plans, and the Empire tries to hold off the Rebels. If a player on the Rebels team gets the plans, the game is over.

Each player has a belt with a flag. To eliminate an opposing team’s player, steal their flag.

Galactic Big Boss:

Each team has a Galactic Big Boss who is invincible but can’t eliminate other players. This player has the extremely important role of being the team’s healer. When a team member loses their flag, they have to return to their base to get another one.

Chosen Ones:

Each team has 4 Chosen Ones. On the Empire team they are called “Siths,” and on the Rebel team they are called “Jedi.” They are stronger than the other team members. Only a Chosen One or someone more powerful from the opposing team can eliminate a Chosen One.

However, Chosen Ones can eliminate regular members of the opposing team. They wear a red band to tell them apart. Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker: These are the 2 most powerful players in the game. Darth Vader is with the Empire, and Luke Skywalker is with the Rebel Alliance.

They can eliminate any member of the opposing team, but only Darth Vader can eliminate Luke Skywalker, and only Luke Skywalker can eliminate Darth Vader. They are identified by wearing a jersey.

Balls:

There are 4 balls hidden on the playing field. These balls possess a special power. Any player can use them to eliminate a Chosen One. When a team member finds one of these balls, they get one chance to throw it at a Chosen One. After that throw, a counselor hides the ball again.

Different coloured ball:

There is a different coloured ball hidden on the playing field. It has a very special power. Any player can use it to eliminate Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker. When a team member finds one of these balls, they get one chance to throw it at Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker. After that throw, a counselor hides the ball again.

Skills

  • Gross motor skills

Variations

If the game gets too repetitive, introduce the “asteroid belt.” The camp counselors, armed with balls, form a belt in the middle of the field.

Players attempting to cross the field have to dodge the balls thrown by the counselors. If they get hit, they lose their flag and are eliminated.

Goal

Conserver les plans de l’étoile noire.
