Specific Details and Rules:

My friends and I have devised a new game type utilizing the tree house in my back yard. Basically, a larger, more powerful army of two or more attacks a smaller (perhaps less heavily armed too) army defending the tree house/base. You can use water balloon siege weapons or anything you have to turn the tide of war to your side. The game is over when either a Team surrenders, is eliminated, or if the attacking Team gains control of the base (no active defending Team Players are inside the base limits). Make sure that if you are on the defending team that you have a Type Two water station or, if you can, get a hose up to the tree house with an extension of some sort to make it a Type Four filling station. The downside of this game is that it is only playable if you have a tree house or some other fortified base. Let the siege begin!
