Chaos Tag


Any defined open area


Various small pieces of equipment for easy retrieval


Players are divided into two teams who each start in their own half of the playing area. Players try to cross their opponents baseline, and pick up a small object. They then seek to return to their own baseline, without being tagged by an opponent. If tagged, players stand still like a scarecrow until freed by a teammate. A teammate can be freed by crawling underneath them from back to front. The team who steals the most small equipment within a designated time are the winners.

Video Explanation


Increase the number of teams and use all sides of the playing area as the teams baselines.
