Ode to the spawn

I love spawn games. Why you ask? let me splain..

PRO's of spawn games
It makes smaller games play bigger, smaller groups play bigger, and lets players play more... i.e., ZERO waiting around while the game in progress wraps up.

And the kids who are just learning the game get more game time, and learn a bit quicker that getting shot is not the end of the world.

And picking even teams is not all the important.

CON's of spawn games:
The defending guy who stands next to the spawn and just keeps playing while in contact with the spawn point...
The attacking guy who camps the spawn to keep the defenders trapped nearby.
And the close shots that can occur while an attacker and defender are on top of the spawn at the same time.

-------------------------

Locally we play a bunch of spawn games.. and have come up w/ a rather effective way of spawning that eliminates the problems.. and adds a fun twist to the normal games.



On the field we put 4 spawn points like this for the defenders.

If the cone is standing upright on the table, the eliminated defender may run to the spawn, place his hand on the blue hand print and hold it there while counting to 10. At "10" if the cone is still standing the defender pulls his plug and is back in.
If the cone is knocked down, that spawn point is dead.

The tall yellow table and blue tarp makes the spawn point easy to find.
The tall table makes it easy to see if the cone is still standing at a distance.

From an attacker's perspective knocking out the enemy spawns is a really good idea. Likewise defending one's own spawn points vs defending the main objective adds a little twist to the game for the defenders.

--------------------

I'de love to hear some outlaw baller comments and local adaptations.

Great idea! That certainly would make the game more interesting.

What methods are valid for knocking the cone down? Can only one player spawn at a time?

knock it down:? anyway you can.
one player? - any number can use at once - and use as often as you like (just so long as it is active).

Knocking out the cone in any fashion works, ( shooting it) does not... 2 or more can used the same spawn at the same time...

So you can't shoot it down? Or does shooting it just not knock it down to begin with?
