It's been too long since we got together to shoot toy guns at each other, let's fix that.

When Saturday, February 20th, 10:00am to whenever.

Location will probably be Boston Park unless we find somewhere else that seems better. Boston Park has some trees for cover and a weird bridge thing that's fun to play on and around. There's a KFC right across the street and a ton of fast food places about a mile away at Lincoln & Rock if you want some lunch.

Games we usually play: Team deathmatch (3/15), Humans vs. Zombies, Defend the Core, pistol rounds, Capture the Flag (2 flag, or 1 flag push).
I think it'd be fun to have an all ball/rocket/missile/arrow round if anyone wants to try it. If anyone wants to try a gametype I didn't mention just let me know.

What to bring: Eye protection. At least one primary and one pistol. Extra stuff since blasters tend to break at wars. Loaners if you're a nice guy. Plenty of darts. We'll probably play some HvZ so you might want something with lots of ammo. If everyone likes the idea for an alternate ammo round then bring something that shoots balls or rockets. A sword is fine too. Stuff to sell or trade. Lunch or lunch money.

What not to bring: Black painted blasters. Other than that I'm not going to make a long list of banned blasters. Just use non-douchebag common sense. If you wouldn't want to be shot with it yourself don't shoot someone else with it. If you know your blaster is so powerful that it'll make the games unbalanced then use something different. Don't bring something that will injure anyone.

So let me know what's up, guys. What date? Ball/missle round? Anything I forgot to mention that needs mentioning?

Meatballica, is there any weekend that would work best for you? Since it looks like you're the only out of towner that might come (sorry, Ace, I'll come up to Topeka sometime this summer if you host a war) the date is pretty much up to you.

Sadly, I will not be able to attend this one, I hope you have fun. For those of you who are in the Topeka/KC area, Ace or I will get something set soon enough.

We're not discouraging people from joining a Nerf forum, we're discouraging them from joining this forum. It's an important distinction because, frankly, we don't give a shit. The Haven was created to escape the idiotic masses, now they're all here. -cxwq

Well, I'm just gonna say the 20th for the sake of having a concrete date. I'll update original post.

Bump for a little bit of an update.

A decent amount of my coworkers and random friends are interested in playing.
This means there will be lots of new people with stock blasters.
I'm thinking heavy doses of HvZ would work well since it doesn't need long range.
Just something to keep in mind. (Bring a sword for when you're a zombie if you have one)

Hell yes, lets have a bloodbath ;)
Swords just sounds like a good idea, zombies need a little something besides bare hands and trying to bat away darts like a Jedi sounds like fun.

Yeah, the weather is supposed to be bad, but I'm still down. I'll put on warm clothes and play. I dunno about all my random guests though. We could go ahead and get together and if no one shows up or it's just too terrible out to Nerf we could go play Halo or figure out something else.

Edit: I talked to most of the people that wanted to go today. It looks like we should still have a nice turnout.
See ya tomorrow, dress warm! :P

Ok, the weather is shit today. This war isn't cancelled, but postponed to another date.

If weather forecasting can be trusted this far in advance next Saturday (Feb 27th) looks like it'll be decent.
45℉, partially cloudy, 20% chance of rain.

Sooo...Feb 27th?

Haha, my comment was aimed more at Collective and wohnson89 :P

I will be in Topeka sometime on the weekend of May 21st-23rd to see the Summer Nationals at Heartland Park.
Maybe we could Nerf then?
