When Scott reached the south pole the first thing he saw was Amundsen's Black flag. "Bugger" he said and headed home. The rest is history. This game revives that moment. The rules are simple. Take a black flag, go somewhere and as long as there are no other flags in sight, plant it. Hang around and watch the disappointment of others when they arrive second. Admittedly at first the game will be easy but soon flags will cover the globe and things will get interesting.
The Black Flag game possibly the first Facebook based artwork started at 1:00pm 24/02/08 and will finish at 1:00pm 24/02/18. The progress of the game can be tracked and Flag templates can be downloaded at:blackflaggame.blogspot.com and facebook.com/group.php?gid=8436101691
