    Real life TuT: a game more than just hide n' seek

    Hey Everyone,

    As the title says: a kind of new airsoft / paintball / teambuilding game has popped out of my mind last week. Hint: It's no regular airsoft / paintball / teambuilding. It's TuT played in real life.

    Yep. The main concept would be playing as if we were Guards and Thieves, just like in our favourite UT Mod. The reason I posted this here is because I haven't found any alternatives to this except some 'metal gear solid airsoft games' and such, but these are still quite different to what's in my mind. (Hide and seek is not an alternative)

    So it still needs a lot of polishing, creating rules, etc., but wanted to hear your thoughts on this.

    The very, very basic use case would be: we rent out an airsoft site with my TuT fan friends. Instead of choosing an outdoor scene, we play on sites where there are buildings, possibly two or three of 'em. Also, we'd have limited light sources. (candles maybe? Any alternatives?). Before starting out, obviously, it needs a lot of preparation. We go through the 'map' a few times (yes, this requires days) hide loot, and then it's sort of self descriptive.

    Think of a site something like this: https://ilovedunakanyar.hu/cikk/elme...aktanyaban-315 . I’m sure, there are even better than this, but an old soviet barracks would do the trick I guess.

    My biggest argument is weapons. We can solve this with NERF guns, practice bows (how do they call these btw?) and fake melee weapons. Things would look like a bit as if we were in a LARP fantasy game, but without intense fighting.

    Also, we could have ambient sounds played in game, to avoid hearing each others footsteps too loud.

    Although this is just an outline, you'll get the main idea. Do you guys and gals think such a game would be possible?

    Jump in and share some thoughts.

    I think its a great idea, similar to Paintball you could have 30 or 45 minute rounds. Team of 2 or 3 thieves vs 5,6,7 guards.

    Get exclusive access to a location like this https://www.peckfortoncastle.co.uk/ and an objectives like 'take something from the throne room and get out again' or KO the king... etc

    Each team gets 15 minutes planning time.

    Scoring would be hard, and marshalling the whole thing as well would also be quite a challenge.

    Nice idea though, needs work but if anyone owns or is setting up an events company this might be one to check out.

    Yes, rules and details need to be fleshed out, but Iím glad you liked the concept Fixxa.

    Can you really rent out castles and such in England? A scene like that could give a big boost to the atmosphere indeed.

    Yeah it'll probably cost a lot, and they might not hire it out for 'a game of Thievery' .... they might need convincing

    Ok. I’ll sort this out, and record some footage with a gopro.

    Anyone else?
