About this project
“It's dark. Gnarled trees block the night sky. Boundary markers flash red in the distance. Enemies prowl nearby. And somewhere deep in enemy territory lies The Orb. You sneak forward, searching, desperate to avoid capture..."
What is CAPTURE THE FLAG REDUX?
The original version of "Capture the Flag" is an outdoor game that pits two teams against one another. The objective is to steal the enemy's flag without getting caught. It has been played for some ninety years all over the world.
Now imagine playing this game at night -- but rather capturing a flag, players steal glowing Orbs of Light. Imagine flashing red "War Lights" forming borders between territories, and envision players wearing luminous wristbands to identify team loyalties.
That's what Capture the Flag REDUX is: a kit comprised of specialty game pieces that create a futuristic nighttime adventure.
KEY FEATURES INCLUDE
Reinvents a classic game for today’s generation
- Develops teamwork and camaraderie
- Provides a safe activity for after sunset
- Motivates physical exercise, especially for youth
- Visually dynamic and futuristic
WHEN YOU MIGHT USE IT
- Camping Trips
- Bar & Bat Mitzvahs
- Summer Camp
- Game Nights
- Birthday Parties
WHAT'S IN THE KIT
Includes over fifty game pieces: two Orbs, eight Prison Markers, six War Lights, forty Glow Wrist Bands, batteries and an instruction book.
The kit can be used to play several totally NEW GAMES like:
- The Traitor
- Zombies vs. Aliens
- Mr. President
- Werewolves & Hunters
Funds generated from this campaign will be used to purchase raw materials for 500 kits. Why 500? Because that’s the minimum order required to receive wholesale pricing. Without your help with what I like to think of as a "pre-order," our first batch of kits would be prohibitively expensive to create.
This site also serves as a platform for developing the game and testing its marketing.
Please share your thoughts, concerns and questions!
WHY THIS PROJECT WILL SUCCEED
Capture the Flag is a classic outdoor game: fun, exciting, easy to play. Add futuristic lighting and all-new game variations and you have a totally fresh take on an already exhilarating game.
The game’s prototype has been play tested with The Boys & Girls Club, high school students and Boy Scouts.
The feedback is unequivocal: PEOPLE LOVE THE GAME.
WHY THIS GAME MATTERS
Youth statistics in the USA are startling: 42% of minors do not participate in any school or community sport. Obesity among teens has quadrupled in the past thirty years. The average time spent on screens (TV, computer, phone) exceeds 4 hours per day.
Let's give people -- especially youth -- appealing alternatives.
Capture the Flag REDUX inspires individuals to spend time outdoors, collaborate, and embark upon a futuristic experience. It celebrates stealth, strategy and teamwork. And it offers something fun, safe and active to do after nightfall.
Your willingness to consider this project is an honor. Whether you order a Delux Master Kit or just want to show a bit of support, YOUR help is greatly appreciated!

Risks and challenges
Kit supplies will be manufactured abroad. To ensure the highest possible quality, samples will be ordered from each manufacturer. If the product is faulty, deliveries could be stalled by 1-2 weeks while another manufacturer is selected. Should it occur repeatedly for the same item, delays could be as long as 3-4 weeks. This said, every possible effort will be made to ensure this does not occur.
Secondly, this is my first kickstarter campaign. This idea has been under development since 2013 -- and already there have been many surprises -- but the project WILL move forward. Should you contribute to this campaign, you WILL receive your pledge item, and you WILL receive updates from me until it does.
