About this deal

Sometimes teams wear dark colors at night to make it more difficult for their opponents to see them.

Kids love this game during the day and it bring ps to another level with the lighted bracelets and ball (flag) for night time use. I’m excited to try out the expansions and playing in an environment with a few more obstructions… like the woods! Straight out of the box, I was a bit sad to find out that a few pieces didn’t work (I am assuming dead batteries). Worth 5 stars if bracelets are a bit more durable, flags are brighter and indicator lights are a bit bigger.

My nephew’s favorite is, “The Traitor”, where you have one member on your team that is actually playing for the other team. I thought he wouldn’t be able to play this until it warmed up outside, but he and his friends were eager to try it out indoors. Remarkable to me was the fact that three or four of them had been socially somewhat excluded previously. It has sat on the shelf until this week unopened with illinous westher we finally got a break in the cold to use it. We had a glow in the dark party for my son’s 11th Birthday and the kids had a GREAT time playing the glow in the dark capture the flag.

We only played the game once and I noticed the design of the wrist bands is not that great, took awhile to put on. I get on the kids for their phone use, but I was no better → watching football on the big screen for hours on Weekends. Capture the flag was a huge hit this morning – in fact, it was the most exciting gift my boys received from Santa!Kids 7 through teens played and had to be dragged inside with the promise of cake to get them to stop! Some of the batteries were dead or dyeing and they dont give you extras in the kit, but if you register your kit they send you a bunch of new batteries which I appreciated. This latter variant makes offensive play easier, as the flag will tend, over the course of the game, to be moved closer to the dividing line between territories.

Though it added a really cool effect to who was on what team, some didn’t like wearing them because it gave away their positions when hiding. We had some issues with my son and his friends mistreating the toys and not handling them with care which caused a few of the items to break. Ex: Set up the Jail so that if a player touches the jail, everyone is freed and gets a free walk back but they have to go back to their side before they can try to get a flag. Instead, we set up a number of tents in the backyard, invited a number of neighbors to spend the night, and played Capture the Flag throughout the evening, with pizza and cake during breaks.They had two teams and tried to capture the flag (the glowing ball) while using the laser and nerf guns to get team mates out. Our only issue was finding a good place to play for a pretty good sized crowd of kids (about 25) but they had lots of fun! A couple of the bracelets were lost in the dark of night, but, overall, it was an excellent experience. We were looking for a game that our wide range of ages in our family could enjoy and this game delivered!

Next, I would suggest that the company come up with a hard cover for the on and off switch for the flags.

More than half of the plastic bracelets cracked in half and the on/off switch to one of the “flags” broke. We are an active family with 4 kids (6, 8, 10, 12) and we have stayed up many nights past midnight playing this game in the backyard!
