Lets take a journey, going back in time to the good old days, in the era where men would duel for the outcome of a battle, for the honor of arms , to uphold the name and reputation or for the eyes of a seductive femme fatale.
Especially since the 12th century AD in the distant island of Japan, which
was dominated by the elite Samurai, a warlord would challenge his opponent before the
battle in an archery duel. He would shoot a special whistling arrow for the duel to begin. This could influence the outcome of the battle before the fighting even started. Weapon: The Japanese bow (Yumi) at 50 meters or more.
Purpose: To prevent mass slaughter and avoid unnecessary bloodshed and also for a quick victory.
Today, of course these codes of conduct and honor have been surpassed. Remembering, however, gave birth to the need for an archery game that will bring elements back to the present day and safely entertain participants. First priority in this game is safety and that is why we must pay great attention to the manner and the means by which this game is conducted.
-Archers set the distance from 30 to 50 meters (depending on archers abilities). - Each player has a single, specific for this game, designed arrow. Players fire their shots after a signal is given by a referee or at will if alone. - The players are not allowed to move. After the first shot, and since no one has any more arrows at hand the 2 arrows are gathered and the duel continues for another two rounds. - If during the game the player manages to catch the arrow in flight he wins 5 points (arrows move slowly due to their design and for security reasons). - If one player successfully hits his opponent he wins 10 more points. - Winner at the end of the third round is declared the player with the most points. - The process can be repeated until one of the two players manages to reach 30 points first. (or some other sum set at the start).
