The lunch breaks during elem and Hs seemed very long. There was still a lot of time after eating…so what do we do? We play! One of the games we usually play during lunch was agawan base. Yes the game where we used trees! Still remember how to play the games? Heres how.
Participants are divided into two teams with equal number of team members. The object of the game is for one team to try & capture the base of the other by reaching the other’s home base first & tagging a pre-decided item (usually a tree trunk!) symbolizing the opposite team – without getting tagged by the defending members of the opposite team. A safety line is drawn between the two teams. A member of an opposing team who crosses the safety line into the territory of the other team can be chased & tagged by the team that owns that base. If the attacker gets tagged before he/she manages to get back to his/her safety zone or home base, he/she becomes a prisoner of the opposite team. He/she can be rescued by his/her teammates if one of his/her teammates manage to get close to the base & tag the prisoner without getting tagged himself/herself by the guard or one of the defenders in the opposing team. The game ends when a member of an opposing team manages to tag the symbol of the other team or when all the members of one team are captured by the other leaving their homebase free for the opposite team to attack & capture.
