Specific Details and Rules:

  1. Soakn' Destroy is an assault-style team game that can be played with a wide variety of objective types, as outlined in the Special Objectives Listing. For simplicity's sake, each team must have the same type of objective (no objective mixing, only one type), number of objectives, and similar/symmetrical objective placement for multi-sided games. Each team's objective must also be placed near their spawn points, which also must have similar/symmetrical placement.

    From the Special Objectives Listing, one of the following objectives may be used for Soakn' Destroy:

  • Arrival Target
  • Attack Target
  • Container Target
  • Hanging Target
  • Ball and Container
  • Bomb and Target

The Bomb and Target is the classic Soakn' Destroy objective, but the Ball and Container and other objectives may be preferable.

Single-Sided Soakn' Destroy: Within the specified time limit, the Offense team must complete the objective within the specified time limit. Teams alternate Defense and Offense roles and each game counts as two rounds. This game may be broken off into alliances where each alliance rotates around so that in the end, the Offense and Defense teams get mixed up.

Multi-Sided Soakn' Destroy: Each team posseses their own set of objectives, so that the overall objective balance is symmetrical i.e. if using the Bomb and Target, each team must have the same number of Targets placed in a similar number, and each team must get the same number of Bombs, or the Bomb(s) may be designated as neutral and placed in the middle of the field instead of at a team's base.
