  • zown is capture the flag on steroids. Teams compete head to head in a quest to control the most territories (aka zowns) on a map. To capture a zown, a player must locate the zown’s black box, get it’s code, then text it to the main frame. Teams accumulate one point for every second they own a zown, so they must construct, communicate and execute their strategy quickly if they expect to win. At the end of 30 minutes, the team with the most points wins.
