2. The players MUST call out “(Color) Punch Buggy(additional info), no punch backs.” For example, if you saw a Blue
VW Bug, you would say “Blue Punch Buggy, no punch backs.” If you saw a Red VWConvertible Bug, you would say “Red Punch Buggy Convertible, no punch backs.” If you saw a Green VW Thing, you would say “Green Punch Buggy Thing, no punch backs.” etc3. The person receiving the punch may not retaliate until the puncher finishes speaking and punching. The person receiving the punch may not retaliate unless the puncher fails to say “no punch back.”
5. The Proximity or Familiarity Rule shall apply at all times. Any eligible VW vehicle that is parked near a player’s home or within their regular and customary travels is ineligible. For example, if there is an eligible VW vehicle parked in the driveway en route to the grocery store the driver customarily travels to, it is an ineligible vehicle. This rule is necessary to prevent sabotage by a player familiar with the location of an eligible VW vehicle over a player who is unfamiliar with the area.
