Last summer we rented the laser tag arena on more than a few occasions in which to hold Nerf wars. I'm trying to gauge interest from the rest of you, and see how many people are interested in doing it again. These wars will be open to the NIC, now that I've had a season of testing


Last summer, Valhalla aside, the wars were Friday evenings, from midnight to 3am if I recall correctly. Cost was (usually) $4-5/person.

Due to the way events were scheduled, wars were (and I suspect will be) only capable of being announced about 7-10 days before they were/are held.

Please post if you are able/willing to attend such wars, and if you are interested in possibly paying more/person to rent out to arena during more common nerfing hours and for a longer span of time.



If it matters, the most significant rules used are as follows


Stock darts only (decreased risk of a stray round breaking a light bulb, etc.)
No singled blast bazookas, Titans, or anything of the ilk.
+Bows are also banned, but because of their length and the narrow corridors, you probably wouldn't wanna use them anyway, xbows are almost too long. In these arenas, range doesn't just take a back seat to RoF, it rides in the trunk. The raider was not available when we used them last, but I suspect they would be devastating here.




*Edit*


To alleviate the confusion regarding the date of the war, additional information is required.




The way this works is as follows;

Any evening for which some other organization has decided to rent out the facility is (generally) offered to me/the group. Any other organization is given first priority, as we are being given a reduced rate (for a handful of reasons, which do not need to be listed here). Typically, the wars are arranged by the owner calling me to notify me that a given Friday night is available, or I call and ask about a given Friday night. They tell me "yes," and I immediately post (in the past, it was on a Facebook group, but I'll be posting here as well, since these will be open to the NIC) as such, alerting the group. Everyone available then shows up at the designated facility (we have two available) and time with cash in hand. I collect, pay the manager o duty, and after signing waivers, we head off to start nerfing.


The biggest issue lies in our inability to know, with great foresight, that any given evening will be available more than about 7-10 days notice. So my inquiry is basically to see how many people are willing and able to attend a war, on a Friday night, on short notice, throughout the summer. Last summer our average attendance was 28.9 people/war, and average cost was $6/person.

I have family that lives about 1 1/2 hours away. I was planning a trip to see them in the fall, and it would be entirely possible for me to make one of these events. I would certainly be there, armed appropriately of course.

I'll try and make it. I'd have to buy a shit load of stock darts for myself and all the people I usually bring is the problem.

I'm so in, yoda, maytag, and afew others from my clan would be totally up for this. I would also like to suggest we try to get ahold of the HVZ group that got shut down at UK one of the guys was at the last cinci war, and he may be able to drum up some interest. NKU also has HVZ from what I understand so that may get more attendance.

Also I have a question about what the rules are pertaining to nerf swords, battle axes and such.

My DnD group/nerfing friends generally meet on the weekends so if we had a week heads up, we'd be good for it. The whole stock darts is a little unsettling... I would have to go pistols, pirate style... A tertiary would be almost necessary.

Sounds cool. I played there a few times (just for the laser tag though haha), and I really like the arena. Though the laser tag guns suck balls.

I'll definitely try to make some games, after I buy a bunch of stock darts...

You know I'll be there, if I have to sell blood to get the money. Big bird will be available for transport if you don't have a ride, and don't mind riding in the back of a pickup with a cap could use a little help with gas though(she only gets like 12 mpg).

Ask her if she wants you to give her a multiple orgasm.
And when she looks stunned show her a picture of the blaster.
But if she gets excited. You're in.

I might be interested in coming to one of these - but like some have said it would depend greatly on the when - and me having fundage available. Of course, the next month or so would definitely be a no-go since my wife is scheduled to be induced tomorrow. :lol:

I'm In. Never done a war in the Kraze before . . . should be interesting.

Edit: Also I will be buying up Razorbeast Belts so if you have some for sale bring them.
