My buddy and I started up our nerfing group in a fast food restruant where our friend was the night manager and had to close every night, We use to have 4 on 4 death matchs every night after it closed and all the people were done working.

The cave of the winds. (so I can kill man-bear-pig) The moon. An amusement park. Any of the call of duty 3 or 4 maps. The mountains. An entire office building. A cruise ship. A giant bowl of cereal. And Al Gores house.
(Im super cereal.)

As for a real place, probably the funnest place I've ever Nerfed was at one of my friends houses. We were just shooting at each other for hours (using blowguns,) no lives or 'hit points.' We pretty much just stayed in the main hallway of the house, which was about 40 feet long. There were even columns to hide behind...



For a fictional location, I'd probably choose a room that has air, but no gravity. That way, you could still run up/jump off walls and such, but your guns would actually have air to compress for firing the dart.

Mr. Tubb, you mean like my choice, the Battle Room from Ender's Game? I swear I just thought of that.

As far as a real place goes, An office seems like the perfect place.

"Which road do I take?" she asked.
"Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat.
"I don't know," Alice answered.

Libraries are way more fun when they're undergoing renovations. Fewer bookshelves, but more duct work lying about and a nice deep drainage ditch around the whole place. Not to mention no risk of shooting out windows as there were none.

If the colors were a little subdued, it would be awesome. Otherwise I'd rather not play in a maze of headache-inducing acid trip colored walls and floors.

Hell fucking yes, dude. Those rounds were awesome. The wandering around suburbia with our arsenal of weaponry, not so much, but the rounds were fun.

Coronado,California. The Navy training base specifically,think about all the awesome obstacle courses and the beach. Also relativley warm. If I can't get to nerf there another place I would like to nerf is right next to Piney. Groove would also be awesome.


Coronado would be... kinda dull. There are a couple of o-courses but they're far apart from one another and not really designed to be fun.

The live-fire ranges aren't designed for someone to be on the other side, firing back.

As an alternative, I'd suggest pretty much any of the MOUT facilities; there's one at Camp Lejeune that's well-built and even has drainpipes for sub-street-level training, also attachment points on building rooftops for training with in-city assault climbing capabilities.

Failing all of that, though, my vote is for the Alewife red-line stop on the T.

Fort Knox, The White House, The Empire State Building,A costco, And a castle


Fort Knox actually has a pretty hardcore MOUT facility that would be good for Nerfing.

I would like to play at a playground that's a 15 minute drive from me. Two awesome wooden castles facing each other that have difficult-to-cross bridges that go to either side. Throw in a "the ground is lava" rule and you have got one hell of a war.

Are you talking about Eberwhite? If so, let's make it happen!

Er, not so much.

Aside from general athleticism and teamwork, there are some concerns. Remember that technology and terrain dictate tactics. One of the things that took the most getting used to for me was that hey, nerf darts won't *kill* you. That changes your tactics unimaginably. You cannot even begin to imagine how thoroughly different a game of tag with ranges in the tens of feet is from combat training. Being good at the one will not automatically make you good at the other - both take practice. But like i said, there is a lot to be said for athleticism and good teamwork.

No, they didn't get an original war planning thread. In fact, they're missing all posts since the end of May. And I've got another one, Skull Island, from King Kong.

Simply a corn maze in the shape of ls and a crossbow. Plenty of space to hide and get cover, but a few open areas for rushing and duels.

Did someone say Ender's Game? Screw the battle room. Nerf on Eros, all the tunnels and hangars, that would be freakin' sweet. Having one of those huge 100v100 airsoft-ish wars in an entire city would be fun too.

I'd say the Colusseum in Rome, the Tower of London, The Vatican, and the Mall of America!!! (I have been to all of those places and they would be so frickin' amazing for nerfing. And I would also add Ostia a Roman port it has tons of partially destroyed buildings and tunnels and there are tons of walls and pillars for cover.

Fuck that, they have gravity on Eros. Plus, there's no jumping, because all the tunnels are too short. But that's beside the point. The lack of gravity is the whole idea here.

I'd say the National Gallery of Art in DC. Lots of rooms, a few levels with stairs and elevators. Rooms full of statues for cover. Big atrium, too much reverberation to make a distinct location. :D
