Nerf Gun Birthday Party Games

Capture the flag.

Dividing players into two teams, each with their own territory and a flag to protect, the objective is clear: infiltrate the enemy's base, snatch their flag, and safely return it to your own territory, all while preventing the opposing team from doing the same.  It's your choice as to whether you prefer to hide the flag or fly the flag openly.  Captured participants go directly to jail (a tree, cone, or designated area.)  The first team to steal the other team's flag and bring it back to their own territory wins the game.  This is an easy game to diy or consider one of these games that is ready to play...
