Save the Prince/Princess.
Each individual or group must shoot white, black, blue, red and gold in order. They must get a white before they can move on to shooting a blue. They must not shoot the X, which is the Prince or Princess. Shooting the X is a scratch and the individual or archer loses the game. The game can be played on the same or separate targets for each individual or team. For groups it can be a speed relay round where one team member has to shoot white before the next can shoot black and so on; it can be alternating archers speed relay round, where each archer gets to shoot once and has to hand the bow off to the next team member regardless; or instead of a speed round, it can be alternating turns with each individual or team alternating with the other.
Archers shoot the ends of three arrows at the same target or large blank piece of paper. Arrows that miss is eliminated and can’t be shot in the next end. The target is folded in half and archers shoot again, and so on. The last archer with an arrow wins.
Variation: “Master of the Target.” Same as above but using a standard 10 ring target. The target is shrunk by incrementally taking an outer ring (or outer colour) out of play at each end.
