Egg Toss

1.      Gather all participants and have them pair off into teams of two.

2.      2. Line up all players in two rows, with each team member facing one another. Teams will start with each member standing approximately 1 ft. apart, with plenty of space between each team for everyone to toss and catch their eggs comfortably.

3.      Distribute one raw egg to one person on each team.

4.      Toss the eggs.

            On command, all team members on one side will gently toss their egg to their         teammate on    the other side. If an egg is broken, that team is eliminated from the     competition. If the egg remains unbroken, the team progresses to the next             level.    An egg that hits the ground without breaking remains in play as if it had             been     caught.


       5.  Catch the egg.

            Everyone who is still in the game  will take one step backwards. The egg is then     tossed back to the original teammate. Again, any team that breaks its egg is       eliminated, and others progress to the next level.


       6.  Egg toss victory!

            Continue stepping backwards and tossing the eggs until only one team remains.     This team is the egg toss champion. If all teams break their eggs on the same round additional eggs will be passed out to replay the round


Capture the Flag

2.    Two game flags will be placed in specific predetermined locations on campus.


3.    Split into attacker and defender groups within your team.


4.     Attempt to sneak to find and capture the enemy flag, and then race back without being caught if you are an attacker.


5.    Capture enemy players by removing their belt flags  while they have your game flag. Only the player with the game flag can have the flags from their belt removed. Similar to flag football


6. A team wins by capturing the other teams game flag and returning it to the location of their flag, or by eliminating all of the other teams members. Said team flag does not have to be at their base to win.


7. Teams may not create protective barriers around the game flag carrier
