Sword Tag

Larpen ‘Light‘: Nottingham vs. Sherwood

Sword Tag: Wat

Sword Tag is a variation on the popular Archery Tag. But instead of bow and arrow, Sword Tag uses Larp swords, axes and maces. With these soft foam weapons, which look realistic, you can engage each other in a safe way.

Sword Tag: Nottingham vs. Sherwood is a species of LarpenLight': experience the Larp battles, without the role-playing. For the atmosphere, wear a costume to move in the world of Robin Hood.

Compete in teams against each other and take that victory!

Nottingham vs. Sherwood

The soldiers of Nottingham are those scoundrels from the Sherwood Forest on the trail. Is this going to be an ordinary confrontation? Man against man, Woman Against Woman? Or will it still be an elegant tournament, where bravely fought for the highest honor?

Fortunately, the 'Troll ball' tournament has been chosen! But whether this is an "elegant" and "honorable" solution...?

Rules Of The Game 'Troll Ball'

Troll Ball is a competition between two teams of 4 to 5 people with swords, maces or axes.

  • Each team has a bucket
  • The referee brings a troll head into play
  • The team that most often manages to get that head into the opponent's bucket wins the match
  • Opponents may be stopped using the weapons
  • The troll's head should not be kicked
  • Biting opponents is not allowed!
  • The referee is always right

For the rest, there are no rules. Injured players go to the side, where they are patched up by the surgeon on duty. After that, they again take part in the competition with fresh energy.


Sword Tag is a game, which takes place in a wooded area. In that case, the game always takes place, even when it rains. In this case, transparent rain ponchos are provided that can be put on over the costume.
