Slippery Rock University's UGC has decided to host our first Eat the Flag tournament on the weekend of September 30. Eat the Flag is a variant of Capture the Flag that integrates the rules of HvZ. We will be able to host pretty much anyone, but please contact me if you wish to attend. I am extremely excited to see friends from Penn State, Ithaca, Longwood, RIT, and other universities again-- so it would be most clutch if everyone showed. :3
Rules for Eat the Flag...
I originally saw another user post this two or three years ago on the boards, but naturally you have two teams wearing armbands. We use freeze tag rules for Capture/Eat the Flag at SRU-- so let us say we have Mr. Sklover and he shots Mr. Mortara, then Mr. Mortara cannot move until another player grabs him and counts to 3 (uttered slowly, One Mississippi, Two Mississipi, etc).
We begin with one OZ, and the OZ turns players from either team into a ZED by tagging them naturally. The stun timer is 2 minutes, and the incubation timer is 4 minutes. (Please note that all the numbers are subject to change-- I am trying to find the best way to balance this.)
The humans obviously win when they capture the other team's flag. The ZEDs win if they tag all of the humans. I will post a more detailed version of the rules at a later date.
We will most likely randomly assign people to teams-- I know everyone enjoys playing with their friends, but I feel as if random teams will promote friendship and stifle any anger that arises from hypercompetitiveness.
Thursday: People can come hang out at SRU, if they really want. But I will probably sit around and drink alone, while listening to Katy Perry.
Friday: People should show, we will hold a meeting to review the rules. Shenanigans ensue.
Saturday: We will host a meeting early for those who missed the one on Friday. We play excessive amounts of EtF, and then do one giant game at the end of the day.
Sunday: People leave, giving their new friends highfives and junk.
