Combat Archery (Archery Tag ®) is an exciting action packed game, described by its founder as a cross between dodgeball and archery! Players are armed with bows and patented foam tipped arrows which are harmless.
This sport is currently enjoyed by dozens of countries spanning six continents and can be enjoyed by players young or old!
Combat Archery involves two teams, consisting of 5 players each playing opposite one another, separated by a “safezone." Each team also has what we call a “5-Spot Knockout Target.”
There are two objectives: 1) to hit the opponents, and 2) to knock out the five discs of the opposing team’s target. You eliminate a player by hitting him or her with an arrow, or by catching his or her arrow.
The 5-Spot Targets work to save a “life” of one of the players. A “hit” player can be called back into the game when a target spot is knocked out or when a teammate catches an arrow.
Using the inflatable bunkers as cover, players must work together as a team, to defeat their opposition. Fantastic fun for all ages!

2 Types of game with differing rules
This style of game play makes a great spectator sport because it is fast paced with many lead changes, when a player is hit they remain in the game and continue to play. As one can imagine, it is quite frustrating to be tagged out within 30 seconds for a new player just learning to shoot and play Combat Archery. The object of this style is to score as many points as possible in the allotted amount of time for that one round (typically 5-10 minutes depending on scheduling and number of players). • Teams are awarded one point for each opponent tagged with an arrow. In any of the following manners: o Players body (including the head) o Any/All clothing (uniform) o Any equipment (bows, arrows, masks, etc.) o Anything touching that player counts as a hit • Teams are awarded 2 points for each spot that is knocked out of the opposing teams’ target • Teams are awarded 2 points if an opponent’s arrow is caught in mid-flight
