Time Tag

Up to this point we have really only had one game for MagneTag: the first one to get hit three times loses the game.  It works pretty well, but now that we have a wireless bluetooth link to play with we have been trying to add more variety.  During one of our brainstorming sessions we came up with a simple game that takes advantage of the fact that both players are connected through the internet cloud.

 

Time Tag:   Players start with 60 seconds of time. Tag the other player to drain their clock, and stop yours. When your time runs out, you lose.

 

Chris managed to code the game rules up in a few hours, and damn if it didn’t work exactly like we had hoped.  Its a really fun game variant that is quite a bit more intense than our standard elimination tag game.  You can’t just sit back and wait for your opportunity to strike, you have to attack because your time is slipping away.
