Campus-Wide Capture the Flag

Across Campus

Join the DU Community in a campus-wide game of Capture the Flag! We’re playing it scavenger hunt style, so we’re hiding 100 pennants across campus, 50 white and 50 crimson. Your 87- number is your team. If your 87 number ends in an odd number (1,3,5,7,9) you’re on the White Team, if it ends in an even number (2,4,6, 8, or 0) you’re on the Crimson Team. Wear your team color on Thursday, and when you find a pennant of YOUR team’s color, bring it to the Hub to earn points for your team, (and you get to keep the pennant). The team that collects the most flags or turns in all 50 of their flags before 5p.m. win! (Winning celebration details to come).

The rules are simple:  Don’t physically remove a flag from another person and do not put yourself or anyone else in any danger.

We won’t be hiding the pennants in any residence hall, classrooms, or restrooms, but anywhere public and accessible is fair game. Best of luck, have fun, and happy homecoming!
