Darts and Blasters:
-To prevent(and at the risk of increasing) further confusion, let's talk darts. My compatriates and I have discussed this at length, and there truly is no reason to use dome darts these days. The commonly-used blasters fire well[hard] enough that slugs reach more-than sufficient ranges in any practical situation. That being said, what is a slug? The common slug is a washer + felt "dot" sandwich atop your foam blank. It creates a uniform dart for all.
-For the sake of argument(and to address Coop's question in this thread), I'll allow a 3/0 fishing weight or lighter UNDER A FELT DOT and with no dome present. This means the weight will need to be recessed into the foam, with a secure layer of hot glue over it, then the felt atop that. DARTS WILL BE INSPECTED IF NEED BE. Anything heavier than a 3/0 weight(I'm talking about you, slingshot weight) will be disqualified from use.
-Likewise, any blaster deemed too powerful[read: dangerous] will be removed from play during the course of the war. The blasters listed specifically above and any that fails any number of tests we may conduct will not be allowed.
-Relying on the scavenging of darts is discouraged. It's easy to show up with a minimal amount of darts and scavenge for the rest of the day, but it can be a hinderance to the people who come prepared, with an ample amount of darts. After regular dart sweeps, everyone will dump all of the picked-up darts so their owners can recover them. This will ensure that play isn't interrupted. We recommend a minimum of 200 darts per player to begin the day.
