I think just about everyone, at one point in time, has played Capture the Flag. You race around trying to get your opponent’s flag and bring it back to your own base without them getting your flag. Well, sometimes the weather outside doesn’t permit such a game. Torrential downpours, high winds, or extreme temperatures could keep us inside. Well, now you can still play some Capture the Flag via Flag Dash, a new board game that’s up on Kickstarter now.
In the game, players play as childhood friends that have grown up and decided to have an old-fashioned game of Capture the Flag. Each character on a team has a special ability that distinguishes them from each-other. Players must select their maneuvers from a hand of cards and play them simultaneously and secretly. You plan out two moves ahead and then players reveal what they have chosen to do. So there’s a bit of bluffing and feinting with your plays. The game ends when you bring your opponent’s flag back to your base or collect a complete set of flags from opposing players.
The campaign’s a bit more than 1/3 of the way to their funding goal with still 28 days left to go.
