Build One: The Rebels
Students get into a scattered formation in the playing area.
All students begin the game as Rebels.
On the teacher's signal, the Rebels explore this star system by running around while avoiding contact with other Rebels.
Build Two: Stormtroopers
Upon hearing about all of the Rebel activity in this star system, the Empire decides to send in a squadron of Stormtroopers to deal with the problem.
Select 2-3 students to be Stormtroopers.
Stormtroopers wear white uniforms (pinnies) and are given yellow Blasters (hula hoops).
Stormtroopers attempt to tag Rebels by kicking their blaster (hula hoop) so that it slides on the ground and makes contact with a Rebel's feet.
If a Rebel is tagged, they become frozen in place (well... carbonite)
Build Three: Rebel Leaders
After getting word that the Rebel fleet is under attack, the Rebel Alliance sends in two of their greatest leaders: Luke Skywalker and General Leia Organa.
Select two students to be Luke and Leia. Give each of them a Lightsaber (foamie).
Luke and Leia attempt to free frozen Rebels by tapping them with their Lightsabers.
Being Rebels themselves, Luke and Leia must avoid being tagged by the Stormtroopers. If tagged, they become frozen. However, Leia may unfreeze Luke and vice-versa.
Build Four: Darth Vader
Hearing that Luke and Leia have joined the battle, the Empire sends in their most feared leader: Darth Vader.
Select one student to be Darth Vader. Darth Vader must wear a black pinnie and is given a red Blaster (hula hoop).
Just like the Stormtroopers, Darth Vader attempts to tag Rebels with his Blaster. However, if a Rebel is tagged with Vader's red Blaster, they must get a white pinnie and yellow blaster and rejoin the game as a Stormtrooper. Therefore, there will be more and more Stormtroopers in the game.
If Luke or Leia are tagged by Vader, they must drop their Lightsaber and rejoin the game as a Stormtrooper. Any Rebel may take on the Luke or Leia role by picking up the dropped Lightsaber.
Build Five: Return of the Jedi
Having felt a great disturbance in the Force, Master Yoda decides to join the battle.
Select one student to play the role of Yoda. Yoda must wear a green pinnie and is given a green blaster.
Yoda plays the same role as Darth Vader, except that he targets Stormtroopers. If a Stormtrooper is tagged by Yoda's blaster, that Stormtrooper must put away their uniform and Blaster and rejoin the game as a Rebel.
Being masters of the Force, Yoda and Vader are immune to all Blaster attacks (including each others).
