Archery Tag® consists of teams of five players on opposing sides, separated by a Safe Zone. The object of the game is to eliminate all opposing players by getting them "out" or scoring the most points in a timed game. Each game begins by placing bows along the end lines and arrows in the center of the safe zone. Player then take a position on their end line. Following a signal by the referee, players rush into the safe zone to gather as many arrows as possible. Then players return to their attack zone to start shooting. Field Size matches a standard regulation tennis court.
