If a member of one teams tags a member of another team they must battle to stay on the field.
Both participants take a Bible and hold it over high over their head with the binding in their hand (no fingers stuck in to mark their place). The game leader then calls out a book from the Bible (you can call out verses to make it more difficult). The leader then says “Go!”. The first person to find that book (or verse) gets to stay on the field. The other person goes to the square closest to the wall in their jail.
It is possible for more that two people to take part in a battle. If two members of the Blue team touch the same person on the Red team then it’s a two against one battle. You can have as many people in a battle as can touch each other. But, each person can only be in one battle at a time. So, you may need to choose which battle that person is to take part in.
Whenever more than two people are in a battle every person receives a Bible and attempts to find the assigned book first. The first person to find the book wins for their team. And, all of the opposing teams members involved in the battle go to jail.
