- Have waivers signed by parents
- Mandatory eye protection
- Clear boundaries
- Clear rules and game types
- Have a few older people - even older participants help you with keeping kids in line
- Figure out how to work out darts and such (I bough a ton of darts off Craigslist and ebay, about 1700, and charged the participants $1 each if they wanted to use my darts, otherwise they could bring their own and take their own back because inevitably darts get damaged and lost. I also bought about 50 blasters and loaned them all out, free of charge of course.
- Get help, getting a ton of kids under control when they are shooting each other, even before the round starts is really rough on your body.

I was shooting #6 slugs made by Demon Lord. Actually at the last war I was at I found one of the darts I used at APOC (Pink foam, green felt, has an 'H' written on the back).
I think this was FA's last APOC and hydrocannonkid's first
Addition: It worked great all day long. I was able to get some key positions in carpe and pin down part of the opposing team due to the hopper's dart capacity.
If you read this, thank you so much Cheerios!
I also had a CPVC breeched longshot from some person here but it didn't feed properly and chopped up darts so I never used it and ended up selling it later on.
There are too many experiences to count.
One of the top ones is definitely at APOC 2013 where I was selected to be one of the few siding with the LGLF and Magenta Mongols and friends against everyone else at APOC. I believe we had about 8 of us versus 50 or so. And Langley nerds out with a "I've always wanted to do this" Avengers speech bit. I wish my camera angle was better but here it is: https://youtu.be/MBY59Sp_Bgc?t=3m4s
The greatest thing is we ended up winning the deathmatch without losing anyone. Many great stories were born from this round. Just ask Koree.
Pretty much every war (local, invites, & SoCal) I've ever been to has been a memorable, one way or the other. Post war shenanigans are the best though.
I have a bag of slugs of unknown number, definitely over 100, will trade for plusbow
Okay, who's got darts? I've got mobstacles, dart making materials, unmodded longshots, and admin accounts, and one official mag-7 plusbow to trade.
You can pick up mine after getting hit by them.
Read and follow the rules. Take your hits. Bring plenty of darts (200-300 should be alright). Don't steal anyone's darts. Don't touch people's stuff without permission. Wear eye protection. And lastly don't be a dick.
I'll be there with my brother. This'll be my first war, anything specific I need to know?
Time: 10 AM to 5 PM
Hosts: Gears, Hoongfu, Koree
Location: The field next to Eddystone Lighthouse Hall
Street Address: 1401 E 9th St, Eddystone PA 19022 Google Maps
We’ll be setting up mobstacles for cover.
Eye protection is mandatory
Blasters Restrictions: Singled titans and the like. I reserve the right to spot ban anything deemed unsafe.
Dart Restrictions: Slugs, slugoids, and silicon headed darts of various kinds. Try to keep the mass equal to or under 1.1 grams. No Amoirs or darts that contain "putty" of any sort.
No shooting in the staging area or around it. If you shoot someone in the staging area, even by accident, there will be consequences.
Anyone under the age of 13 will NOT be allowed to play. The only exception being an older sibling/parent/guardian PLAYING with us. We're not going to take care of your kids.
Anyone who is not considered mature enough for this activity, regardless of age will be dropped from the rest of the day's activities. This includes, and is not limited to dealing with complaining about pain from taking hits.

I hopefully got good footage that I'll be uploading very soon.
Recap soon when I can feel my fingers again.
