Ambush

A great outdoor game for the summer. One person is declared as Lookout. Decide on a Fort, somewhere with a good view of the outdoor space where the Lookout must stand guard. The higher up the better.

Now put a flag in the ground at the Fort. This can also just be a stick, or any item you choose.

Everyone else must now collect at the Rebel Base. This is any other place, some distance from the Fort. Maybe at the other end of the garden or outdoor space.

The objective of the game is to be the first ‘rebel’ to get from the Rebel Base to the flag at the Fort without being spotted by the Lookout. How do you do this?

Simply: the Lookout starts counting to ten. On Ten he/she shouts out 'Closed!', and shuts their eyes. He then counts to ten again, opens his eyes, and shouts out 'Open!'. This repeats, Open , Closed, Open, Closed etc.

Clearly, when he has his eyes closed, the rebels can scramble towards the Fort, trying to find cover before the Lookout shouts 'Open!'. If you get spotted, you are out of the game.

Play continues until the first person gets to the flag without being spotted.
