GO's need help
I have a mid sized playing field that i host games on. I am the head of the club around hear and the sole game organizer at the moment. Anyways, the club here is constantly growing and there is a demand for some veriatey amongst the games, we previously only played seek and destroy and speed ball, which was fine for the few people we had. the internet being so helpful, i am asking other game organizers or anybody with a valid game idea for some help/ inspiration.
1) seek and destroy- one team goes out sets up and ambush point as they see fit, radios back. second team patrols until contact and elimination. kinda a vietnam esque game.
2) hold the fort - defending team sets up parimiter around structure (barn in our case). attacking team attempt to capture fort or eliminate opposing team.
3) speed ball - short course game (old paintball style) all players are within visual. advance on oppsoing team unill all are eliminated.
thats all we've got really. we brainstormed the other day and devised a three flag capture the flag (to promote squad building skills and curb camping amongst the less experienced players)
4) flag raiders - three flag points, two bases. each team must move as a squad (no camper or stragglers) to capture a flag, return it to thier base, then capture a second flag and return it to their base. the first to successfully capture two flags or eliminate opposing force (but thats not the idea behind this game) is winner. opposing teams may not recapture a flag from the opponents base, but may capture a flag from their flag runner upon elimination of player.
so any more ideas and recommendations would be appreciated.

Last man standing (Ultimos homo statans): All against all in a game often with limited time and area.
Back to basic: A game where only spring pistols is allowed. Ammo can be limited.
Terminate (Team mot team): Two teams that fight against each other until time has run out or one team has been annihilated.
Capture the Flag: Two teams play against each other and tries to take the other teams flag back to their on base (flag). The flag has to be carried clearly visible. This game can be played in two variants, "Live Flag" or "Dead Flag". In Live Flag the flag is dropped if the Flag carrier is shot, and a another player can pick the flag up. In "Dead Flag" the Flag carrier has to return the Flag to the enemies base, if the Flag carrier gets eliminated, before the Flag can be taken again.
Two bases one flag: In this game there is two bases, but only one flag and that flag is placed in the middle of the field between the two bases. One team begin in each base. To goal of this game is to take the Flag to the enemies bas. When the flag reaches the enemies base, the enemy looses. If the flag carrier is eliminated anyone can pick up the flag.
Grab the flag: Two teams, or more, that tries to be the first to reach the flag.The team that has the first player to reach the flag, alive, wins. This game should be played in fairly open terrain.
Traitors: Again two teams and this is a version of Capture the Flag. But the judges descretly chooses one player from each team that is given both teams teammarkers. Try to choose a player that havn't had much luck during the day. Inform the teams that each team has a traitor. The game is played as Capture the Flag, but after the game has lasted for 5 minutes the traitors can change team anytime they chooses. Don't trust your teammates.
Man hunt: A volontary player is the prey and the rest of the players is the hunters. The prey is given a pistol and some ammo, and the hunters can have whatever they want. The hunters should be between 4-10. The prey wins if he can reach a specific place within the timeframe. The hunter that shoots the prey wins otherwise. The hunters cant shoot each other.
Bounty Hunters: An everyman for himself game, where each player is issued a teammarker. Then the start signal is given all players runs out in the field. When the next signal is given the game starts. When someone is eliminated, the shooter gets the eliminateds teammarker. The shooter chooses if the eliminated should go to the shooter or if the shooter should collect the teammarker himself. Teamforming is not allowed and the formers is disqualified. Gametime should be atleast one hour and the winner is the player with the most markers.
Wanted, Prefered Dead (Prision Break): A small team, 20% of the players (Prisoners) shall travel thru an area that is guarded by 80% of the players. The prisoners cant have any big weapons or support weapons. The guards can have whatever they chooses. Each prisoner that reaches the goal is consided a winner. Timelimit is somewhere between 30 minutes to many hours.
Commando Raid: A small group is the commandos. The rest off the players is divided to guard the objectives. The defenders goes out to the field and begin to guard the objectives. Each objective should be guarded by the same amout of guards as the commandos are. The commandos is taken to a small zone outside the gamearea. This is their Insertion and Extraction Point. When the commandos has finnished with the mission, atleast 1/3 has to return to this zone or they cant win. Inform the commandos that they have to reach a point in the game area, the "Drop zone", where they will find information about what target they should attack and find the Flag. When they has taken the Flag from the objective they should leave the "Flag" at the "DropZone" and then return to the Extraction Point. There should be a time limit. The guards can barricade themself and send out patrols, but not leave the objectives unprotected.
Paratroopers: Two teams is divided. 1/4 of the players is the Paratroopers and they're blindfolded and taken out to their "DropZone". At the dropzone they're given a simple map over the area. The other players is split to defend 3 objects in the area. The goal for the paratroopers is to "take out" a objective by stealing it's Flag and return with the Flag to the "PickupZone". When the judge at the "PickupZone" has the Flag the paratroopers has won. The map should have faults and one of the objectives should be marked at the wrong place, or an extra flag could be marked.
Hostage rescue: Two teams is again divided. One team is divided into "Hostage" and "Rescue", while the other team is Guards. The hostage has to be divided to different locations. The rescue team can carry extra weaponary to the hostage. The hostage can attempt to flee but they can then be eliminated (Shot trying to escape). 50% of the Hostage has to be rescued.
SWAT terrorist elimination: Classic. A SWAT Team (25% of the players) shall clear an area of terrorists. Buildings is to prefer.
Killing house: A player or a small team shall clear a house that has been rigged by the organisers on the shortest time possible. Each room must be clear of targets but no friendly targets can be hit.
Assassins: Two players has to eliminate a specific player and reach their insertion point before the time limit is reached.
Killing of the Officers (VIP): Two teams, and each team has an Officer. The goal is to eliminate the other teams Officer without getting your own killed. Ammunition might be limited. Another variant is that the Officers cant move.
King of the Hill: 1/3 of the player barricades themself on a hill or relativly open area and the rest of the players is the attackers. On the top of the hill is a Flag, and the team that is closes to the flag when the time is out, wins. The hill should offer quite a lot of protection.
Reinforcements: King of the Hill variant with two teams. From one of the teams a smaller group (1/3) is choosen. This group barricades on the hill, round a Flag, while the big team is placed below the hill and out of range. The remaining 2/3 of the team is take to a place 5-10 minutes from the base of the hill. The team that is closes to the flag when the game ends, wins. Gametime should be between 20-40 minutes.
Zombies: This is another Team vs Team game, but all the eliminated players go to a third start point. When three eliminated players has reached that point, they form a zombie team and can play again. The new zombie team fight against all other teams, including other zombie teams. The game ends when there is only one player left from anyone of the original teams.
Trenches: A rectangular area about 50x125m is divided into 10 sectors, 2x5. The two teams should be big, 15-40 players, and they start on the opposite short sides of the field. The team that controlls most sectors when the game ends, is the wins. It takes atleast 2 men and no enemies in a sector too control it. The flesh wound rule is used.
Drag the doll (Downed Pilot): A Doll (Stuffed and mansize, should weigh atleast 40kg) is in the middle of a square arena. The arena is open and flat, but with a lot of junk for cover. Each side is the start for a team of 3-5 players. The goal is to grap the doll and drag it to you side. This game is supposed to be intensive and fast. It's basically CTF in an arena version.
CQB (Close Quarter Battle): Indoor versions of many games. Often played in a big house or in many houses.
The Terminator: Can be played indoor or outdoors. 1 players becomes the terminator and is basically invincible (extra layers of clothing recommended). He can shoot everyone else and has no ammo restrictions. Everyone else are the humans who must destroy the Terminator or else. Each person has unlimited respawns, but must return to 1 of 2 respawn points and wait for 2 minutes. There is 2 explosive carries selected from the Humans who are the only ones able to destroy the Terminator, in order for them to destroy the Terminator they must be able to "tag" it with a C4 charge (typically a foam brick) with out being killed. They are not allow to throw the charge or launch it in any form farther then 3' so as you can guess a distraction is required to keep the Terminator's back turned while they attempt to rush from the rear.

much appreciated. any other ideas welcome as well. one game i used to use when running paintball games was a game called "virus"
1 lone player is the virus, he goes out in the field. the rest hunt and try to elimiinate the virus. any hunter eliminated by the virus becomes a secondary virus; they can be eliminated, but the primary virus can only be eliminated when all secondary virus' have been eliminated
