Used RVs can be perfect for a lot of things: cooking, gardening, crafting, peace and quiet, music appreciation, art studio in the midst of nature, and much more. One thing that many overlook is your RV’s ability to serve as the perfect base camp for many popular outdoor games. Previously, we listed a number of outdoor games along with the recommendation to incorporate them into the RVing campground community during an upcoming RV trip. This is a terrific method of increasing the community feeling on site as well as increasing the RVers love of RVing.
Capture the Flag is a classic outdoor game that is easy to set up and even easier to pick up, but it’s not the only classic that some are unaware of. For those RVers who found the idea of flashlight tag intriguing, but weren’t sure how the rules should be set up, details can be found below.
Flashlight Tag: Another Popular Outdoor Game to Encourage RV Campground Camaraderie
Step One: You’ll need one flashlight. The person that is designated as “it” holds the flashlight.
Step Two: At the call of the “it” player, the game begins.
Step Three: All players who are not “it” try not to let the player that is “it” tag them.
Step Four: The player who is “it” tries to tag as many players as possible by catching them in the beam from the flashlight.
Step Five: The players who are “tagged” with the beam of the flashlight can either be out of the game or the first player to be tagged can be “it” for the next round.
It’s a fabulous variation on the traditional game of tag. This version, as it is dependent upon a flashlight, is best played at night so it may require adult supervision or be limited to adults/older children as players.
Never underestimate the versatile nature of the RV. It provides for all the necessities of travelers on the road, but doesn’t limit them to activities that are directly RV related. The RV campground is a fantastic place to try new things, or at least, things that are new to you. If you haven’t played tag since you were a little kid, then it’s time you gave it another try. You probably don’t remember what you’re missing.
