MILF-War 2010

Its time for the first ever Minnesota Invite Lots of Friends War (and the first war hosted by myself). The main
goal of this war, as with any other, is to have a fun time playing with Nerf blasters. The secondary goal for this
war is to boost numbers and get some new faces introduced to the Minnesota Nerf scene.

While I think we will accomplish our first goal easily, I've decided to offer a little incentive to help with the
second. There will be a Nerf-y prize awarded to whomever brings the most new people with them to play!
(In the event of a tie, there will be a Deathmatch round between the two groups to determine the winner.)

-----------------------------------

The war is on the 20th of November!
A fair amount of people can't make the 27th, and most of those people can do the 20th, so that's when the war is.
Obviously we didn't beat the snow, but I'm hopeful we can all get one or two friends to tough it out with us!

As for location I would like to host it at Oak Hill Park, which is about a block away from my house. We will
meet at the parking lot in the upper area of the park, its at the intersection of Rhode Island Ave. S
and W 33rd street. There are 3 different playgrounds, heavily and sparsely wooded areas, and wide open
baseball and soccer fields. All of them should be empty since its the end of November. There's plenty of
food options nearby, and an Ax-man 3 blocks away.

-----------------------------------

Rules!

I am going to allow melee at this war. I think it's a shame that Nerf is putting out these sweet weapons and
we've been ignoring them. Just keep in mind that your sword/ax/mace/whatever does not block hits unless
you actually have it in your hand and are waving it around!

I'm going to say no on barrel-taps, everybody should be wearing a jacket and dressed warmly, so close range
hits shouldn't hurt. They will definitely hurt a lot less then getting stabbed by uncovered pvc at least.

Slug or Stock darts only so that...

No blasters are banned! (If you've got something that will hurt people even with Slug darts you should totally
bring it anyways, because it's probably pretty sweet and I want to see it shoot through a tree or something.
Just don't expect to use it during a round.)

Eye-protection is a good idea, I don't want to have to take anybody to the hospital. If you're over 18 and
want to get yourself an eyepatch or something I won't require it though, because eyepatches make everyone
way cooler.

Be a good sport! This is just a more polite way of saying don't be a jerk!

-----------------------------------

What to Bring!

Blasters and Darts: Besides your primaries, please bring something low powered or that can at least use stock
darts in case we do a Zombies or Playground round. Also, don't use the fact that your super powered
diddle-blaster "isn't ready yet" as an excuse not to come. I went to my first couple of wars using marker barrels
and stock darts, and still had a great time! That said, make sure to bring whatever impressive looking blasters
you can, for shock and awe factor on teh noobs.

Lunch: Either in a bag or some money for buying it.

Water: is a good idea, I'm not sure that any of the parks drinking fountains will be turned on

Dress for the weather! I'll try to have a fire going to keep warm at, but gloves, hats, and jackets are always good.

-----------------------------------

Schedule!

10am start time! Lunch around 12:30 or 1pm! Ending whenever we get tired after that!

The first few rounds will be some variation of Wingman or a multi-small team game. Rather then gaining lives
back it will probably be something with infinate respawns. I'm thinking each team might have a flag they carry
with them and will have to drop when hit, the object being to collect as many of the other team's flags as
possible. I want everyone to be able to play with their friends at the start of the day to help them learn the
rules and how to play.

In no specific order, we'll also be playing
Mystery VIP: Infinate Respawns until your VIP is hit
Humans Vs. Zombies: Low powered pistols or stock darts only
Playground Round: I don't know exactly what we'll play, but low powered pistols or stock darts only
DTC: Hopefully we can use the big core, otherwise I will bring a smaller one
CTF: Always a favorite
Territories: If I can think up some good rules for this we might do it. I think it has potential, but needs
a lot of tweaking from the last time we tried it.

If we need a tiebreaker Deathmatch for the who can bring the most friends contest, we'll do it right before lunch.

-----------------------------------

Well, that's the plan. Let me know if you're able to attend and if I've forgotten any awesome gametypes we should be playing.

I may be able to go but if it was closer to my house I would almost certainly be able to come. I park like Highland would be my favorite option but there is another park called Cherokee park that is AMAZING! A good amount of trees, big area, pavilion's and a decant sized playground.

371 Baker St W
Saint Paul, MN 55107-2600
There is the address. If it is there I will for sure come.
Also if I come I may need darts but my friends will probably need darts.

Sure! I'll try to grab some kids. It should be noted that it'd be great if everybody could have a couple of impressive weapons available, for further awesomeness boosting.

I think I already have the 20th off at work, so I'd probably be good to go that day. I always go out of town for Thanksgiving, however, and probably wouldn't be back in time for this war. November 20th and December 4th are my preferences.

I probably wouldn't do this war at Cherokee park, because I haven't been there before. I'd prefer to do it by my house, so we can nerf at a new location and to make sure that I'm not late as is the case sometimes, haha. If it is a problem for people and I have to move it back to St. Paul it would probably be at Newell, which is just a ways further down Snelling from Highland. As far as darts go I'll have a ton of stock darts, but I don't know how many slugs I'll get made before the war. Whatever I do have will be open for anyone to use though.

Alrighty, I reminded people to let me know if they can make it to either date. I want to do it whichever day we can get the most people.

F'ing. Right. ON!!! This is no truer truth ever told.

I, however, will be in Chicago for Thx Gibbin and the 20th already has a day of crap loaded up :o Sorry Veet, You have a hell of a war write-up and the location is metatits but timing is not in my favor.

But if things slide to the 4th I will be by for the AM rounds quite possible...

I added a Doodle poll like the Basset Creek War has to help me keep track of people. Just vote for yourselves, not any friends who will be along, and I'll decide on a final date by the weekend, after it's been open long enough to give everybody a chance to vote.

Don't be too sad if it turns out you can't make this one though, I'm sure that I will be hosting more eventually!

If they want to stick around for a while or play too that's totally fine. It is a really nice park, and as long as I'm hosting a war it might as well be at a place by me.

Also, just a reminder to anyone who hasn't yet to let me know if they can make the 20th as well. That's looking like the day that most people who can't do the 27th are free. I'll make a final announcement about the date on Sunday.

No worries. I waited around for a while, but nobody showed up. Got some boomerang throwing in though, so it wasn't a complete waste of a trip to the park.

Since I'm a sucker for punishment, if enough people want to get together and war on the 27th like the original plan, I'd be down. It's not like I have better things to do Saturday mornings since all the cartoons suck these days, haha. I'll only do it if at least 3 people can commit to coming though, so we can do something 2v2.

Well, at least attendance can only go up for the next war I host, hahaha.

I did not read this post till now but I actually stopped by at about noon in the only spare 15 min I had all day hoping to catch one round. Alas all is not for naught as I got a good look at this park: balls fucking tits!

I took a lot of pics, but this one of the long valley that screams to be nerfed in I think should speak to the potential of this location.

...Sharp sticks!

Haha, I'm going to count the attendance as 2 then!

Glad you liked the park, I'll definitely host another there, eventually. I don't think it was open today, but during the winter there is a warming house for the skating rink that serves hot chocolate and other snacks. Or at least it did last time I was there...
