When:
March 31, 2012
Show up at 9:30am. Games will start around 10:00. We’ll probably end around 3-5pm depending on people's exhaustion.

Where:
Colerain Elementary

Address:
Google Maps Link
499 E Weisheimer Rd.
Columbus, OH 43214

Rules:
- Eye protection is mandatory for all participants.
- Kids under the age of 13 must have their parent(s) on the field or in the parking lot for the entire duration of the war.
- Air blasters that originally fire a projectile larger than a micro dart must have their over pressure valves unmodified.
- Singled Titans are banned. Titans are allowed if they have a shotgun attachment with 3 or more barrels. There will be no "I promise to load more than 3 darts in" or "I promise to only pump is "x" amount of times."
- No shields will be allowed.
- Do not use any blasters painted all black. If you have a dark blaster, please avoid wearing camouflage clothing or too much tacti-cool gear. We've played at this location many times with no problems, but we still don't want to scare anyone.
- Big Blasts will be inspected thoroughly – Any modifications to the tank in order to expand it, or to the ORPV to reduce its effect on the air output will prevent the blaster from being used. Big Blasts already fire insanely hard guys; you don’t need more power. Be prepared to open these blasters in front of the hosts for inspection (don’t glue it shut – it will be banned)
- Any other blasters that are voted too powerful will be banned for the day.
- Blasters will only be banned due to safety/power issues, not because it dominates.

Dart Regulations:
- Felt pads are mandatory on all darts - Hot glue domes are banned.
- The weight under the felt pad is limited by weight, not size or style. You aren’t limited to washers.
- ¼” slingshot weights are banned
- I won’t have a scale to weigh darts, but your dart weight must be lighter than a ¼” slingshot weight.
- It’s tough to define what weights are allowed because there will be safe exceptions to any rule, but we don’t want anything jutting out of the side of the darts or heavy enough to inflict excessive pain. If you’re trying to sneak around the rules, please know the hosts will still have final say and we’ll be banning anything that is too dangerous. If you’re unsure about your dart style, contact me BEFORE the war.
- There will not be exceptions to dart rules if you're using a weak blaster. Darts are recycled and re-shot by other users on the field, so saying "my gay little BnA can't shoot very far, so I'm allowed to use slingshot weights" is illogical and may warrant a punch to the face.
- I thought it went without saying, but I've received questions in the past: Yes, you can use stock darts. This includes stock Vortex discs.
- If the group votes for it, we may end up playing a few zombie rounds. In these rounds, humans can only use stock ammunition. So, bring stock ammunition and a blaster that can fire it or be prepared to start out as a zombie or sit out for a round.

Game Types:
- 3:15
- DtC
- Blob
- Multi-team 3:15

Other Information:
- Bring a bagged lunch or money to get lunch during a designated break.
- Be sure to bring enough darts to support yourself and your guests for the whole day
- Remember to bring water
- Blasters/equipment breaks during games all the time, please don't just rely on one and expect to use another person's stuff when yours breaks. Bring back-ups.

It's great to see new names planning to attend wars. Hopefully the Ohio Nerf scene can grow a bit this Summer.

Oops, I forgot about that. I'll remember that for next time.

I've received a bunch of questions from two guys (I think it may be the same guy on two accounts) regarding shields. It will be easier to just ban all shields to make it easier, including Manta Rays. No one has actually used a Manta Ray, so I don't think it's a big deal. I just didn't want to make a ninja edit and upset someone at the war that was planning to use one.

No singled Titans - ever. Don't even bring it to mess around with; it will just get in the way.

I'll have things for sale, but I won't be offering ballistic balls or Titan rockets. If you'd like to set up a sale of a modified blaster, please send me a PM. However, my last Longshot/Titan sold a while back and contracts are closed - so that's not an option.

Allright well I am bringing a Titan mOdded to take darts and rockets. And the reason I want ballistic balls is because one round I'm doing Herman's will by charging with a reactor/s

This is probably a stupid question, but are SNAP variants allowed? There was no mention of them in the OP, and from the war footage I've seen in the past I didn't notice anyone using them. I'm building some SNAPs as loaners right now and figured they were okay because of their wide acceptance.

Do you need mobstacles? I was thinking about building some for our local wars anyways.

Also, Dave and I are bringing two guests (total).

SNAPS are normally allowed, unless coop decides to be a Nerf Nazi.
Mobstacles are always welcome, the more cover the better.

Generally speaking, as far as homemades are concerned in Nerf Wars, springers are totally fine, while homemade air guns are not (many, MANY ways to make them unsafe). As always, there can be exceptions, but that's something that you should ask the host about (don't assume it'll be approved). And as Coop said, if it gets approved, but ends up proving to be unsafe (you're bruising everyone with it, etc), the host can tell you to use something else.

If it is a single barrel - it may not be allowed. If you were to shoot a single dart out of it when the rules are so clear, we'd ask you to leave.

SNAPs are allowed assuming they get a range similar to other SNAPs. I don't think I've ever seen a springer that shoots TOO hard, so you'll be fine.

As Prince Valor said, the more cover the better. There are lots of trees in the area so they aren't NEEDED (so don't feel pressured to make them), but they will only help.


I may possibly come it's kind of close to me so put me down as a maybe plus 2 people.

I can't tell if this is a serious "maybe" considering you live in Tennessee, but I'll mark it down.

There is a decent chance of me making it to this, and if I do I will be bringing a guest.

My brother and his wife life in Columbus, and I've talked my wife into making a visit that weekend. Now we are just waiting to see if my brother's busy schedule allows it. If so, I'm in, and so is he. :D


I didn't see any mention of melee weapons in the rules. Will they be permitted? (boffers, etc) The lack of shields will make them somewhat less useful, but I always like to bring anything I might be in the mood to use if it is "on the menu" so to speak.

Melee weapons are allowed. They must be foam or something soft enough to not cause injury when hitting at full force.

Sweet. My boffers are definitely in the "safe" category. Now I only need to decide whether to bring the "Overcompensator" or not. :lol:
