Soakfests are great fun and likely make up the majority of water warfare games I've found myself participating in. As soakfests are meant to be purely for fun, rarely are any objective form of scoring or ranking used to determine who won (though often one can tell who got the most soaked
). However, when it comes to organized water warfare games, there are a number of potential game types out there from elimination or one-hit-scoring games to slightly more complex games such as capture-the-flag or some sort of base-defense game.
When it comes potentially participating in an organized water warfare game, what type of game do you think would interest you most in trying out with a bunch of friends or other interested water warriors? Would you prefer individual scoring/elimination games or do you prefer team-based games?
If you prefer a game type that is less obvious, please describe the sort of game you'd like to see played. Consider this as fishing for ideas for laying out better organized water warfare rules. I'd like to end up choosing a few organized water warfare game types on which to build and create more detailed instructions on.
