Other Names:

Setup: 2 Kings and 2 respawns


  • Setup 2 points (cones, landmarks, or other) as “Respawns”
  • Establish 2 players as “Kings”. They are typically two of the larger or more skilled players on the field.
  • Divide into two equal teams with 1 King on each team.
  • Establish field boundaries.


  • Begin with each team surrounding their King on opposite ends of the field.
  • When a player gets out they go to their team’s Respawn.
  • Your team scores a point and the game resets when you get the opponent’s King out.
  • Reset after each point and continue until a team reaches the point limit (e.g. first to 5 points)


  • ARMOR – Instead of having the King use regular player rules you can have them keep a verbal tally of the number of tags they take, and only get out after a certain number.
