Japanese capture-the-flag game look-a-like is focused on lower-the-pole #Bo-Taoshi
Bo-Taoshi is a #capture-the-flag-like game, played on sports days at schools in #Japan. The game is played by cadets at the National Defense Academy of Japan traditionally on its anniversary and is famous for its size, wherein two teams of 150 people each fight for control of a single large pole. Each team is split into two groups of 75 attackers and 75 defenders. The defenders begin in a defensive orientation respective to their own pole, while the attackers assume position some measure away from the other team's pole. A team is victorious if it is able to lower the pole of the opposing team (which begins perpendicular to the ground) to a 45 degree angle before the other team reaches this goal.
