Swargame vs Wargame
Wargame(Airsoft) has been a popular activity in Hong Kong for some time. The rules and regulations of Wargame are applicable to both indoor and outdoor setting. Once the game starts, there is no break until the end of the game. Due to the fact that war games are normally played in forest or bush areas, it is difficult for judges to closely observe if there is any unfair play. It is thus very unlikely that judges can pause the game even though rules are violated. This might cause misunderstanding and unfairness.
The rules and regulations of Swargame are similar with those of football matches. Judges can anytime pause the match and execute judgement or penalty by blowing whistle. This practice can reduce the possibility of unfairness.
We are promoting Swargame in the basis of keep supporting traditional wargame!
