  1. prisoner's base

    Prisoner's Base is a traditional outdoor game, often played in teams, that involves players trying to capture their opponents and bring them back to their designated area or "base". The goal is to have all of the opposing team's members in their "prison" while avoiding being captured themselves. The game ends when all members of a team are captured, or in some variations, when a team's "base" is conquered. This game is generally played in a large, open area and is typically associated with children's play.
