So this weekend (my fall break) my friend invited me to go to a nerf war at this months Cocneticon MAD. Dispite everyone getting there about 2-3 hours late (MAD tradition?), we got started. Unfortunately I didn't manage/remember to get any pictures... :D

We tried a short little human vs. zombie game. It didn't quite work out especially due to the small area. So for the rest of the day we decided to play single eliminations and some games of capture the flag.

The play area was about 60'x150'. This was an open parking lot near some office buildings in Newington, CT. I managed to find about 10-12 intact broken down boxes that were used as bunkers, they seemed to suffice quite well.

Strangely, the guy(s) who were supposed to run the nerf war decided to partake in the other activities that were available, like the video games and a MTG tourney... So I got to run it. With no prior nerf war experience, I can say that I was quite pleased with the overall outcome of the day. People were happy and no one got seriously injured, one kid managed to twist his ankle...

I used my LS for every game. I still haven't gotten around to doing any serious modifications, but it was one of the only modified blasters there. I had some amazing shots and some rather silly streamline flight paths.

Highlights:
  • I got to be in charge and exercise a form of authority.
  • In a 2v3 single elimination, tagging the opposing 3, 2 in the leg one in the back.
  • Remembering how light I am on my feet when I have to.
  • Getting some sun, I spend too much time in the dorm whilst at school...
Cons:
  • Those in charge not taking charge.
  • One broken Vulcan (confirmed?)
  • One annoying kid.
I know that nerf is here to stay at the CTCON MAD's. Unfortunately I cannot make it to all of them. I can try to find out when all the MAD's are scheduled if anyone is interested.

Did anyone from nerfhaven come? Or are you just telling us about some war you had with your friends?

Actually, there was no one from the Haven or NHQ there. It also wasn't really a war that was with my friends, although some were there. I was just doing a little recap.

Some of the people who were there may be registering sooner or later.

Did you read his post? I thought it was quite clear that this was an even that took place at a gaming convention of some sort, and that he ended up running it when the "organizers" bailed. It sounds to me like it was more than just "a few friends shooting each other wtih Nerf blasters", but less than "a war organized on Nerfhaven and attended by dozens of forum regulars".

He also mentioned making the schedule available to anyone interested - which means it is definately of interest to the NIC - or at least members of the NIC in the area to attend a "Conneticon MAD" event.

I'm disappointed that there was a CT war and I wasn't there but I guess there was no way for me to know.

That's it. I'm done. I'm sorry there are breasts on the Internet.
