Capture The Flag Goes Urban

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – In a heated game of Capture The Flag, simple running just won’t do.

Tomorrow (Jul. 17), NewMindSpace – an arts group that organizes fun events in New York and Toronto that encourage people to interact with their environment in creative ways – is putting together a game of Capture The Flag in Brooklyn.

More than 1,000 players will congregate on a half-mile playing field on the streets to steal the opposing team’s flag, and the saying “By any means necessary” will take on new meaning.

Co-organizer Kevin Bracken says players can use any means of transportation to get their flag.

In the past, people have used taxis, buses, unicycles, bikes, skateboards, Segways, and other creative means to sneak onto enemy territory.

Not only is the event a great place to run around like a kid for a few hours, Bracken says dudes often meet single ladies while playing.
