SPANO Twenty-Dirtteen

Alright you filthy SOB’s, I’m locking this one in right now!

When:
• Saturday June 15th, 9 figgin AM till about 4. I’ll be there at 8 setting up.

Location:
• Highland Park in St. Paul, the classic location.

Games
• Meatgrinder
• Rescue the Princess/CTF: 2-sided, moshpit
• Defend The Core: 360 4-team, Dual-Opposite Criss-Cross, Traditional
• Territories: Small Territories/Pistols, HvZ Territories
• Carpe!

Blasters
• Nothing single-shot bigger than a UMB with stock pump and oprv. No bans on springers/bow’ers.
• 4B’s, Titans, Jobars, Roto Rockets: ASK ME!!! Tell me you barrel set up and your intended ammo, I will be very fair if it is safe. No bans on blasters for big ammo.

Darts
• Slugs, Venom’s Balls, or ask me
• No glue domes

Melee Rules
• NO barrel taps
• Pool Noodle, FBR/foam insulator, crappy dollar store melee, or ask me
• No Nerf swords, nothing with a stiff shaft/core/center, nothing wrapped in duct

Shield Rules
• Mantas, manta replicas, ANY Nerf or toy blaster shell split manta style AND… ANY toy of ANY KIND cut up, hacked up, split up, I do not care as long as it is TOP MOUNTED on your blaster.

More Shield Rules
• Medium-ish hand-held toy shields and a pistol
• Bigish hand-held toy shields and melee. Look for pics of Cranky Monkey from Cataclysm 2012, you’ll know what I mean.
• Big Ammo counts as a ‘hit’, not a shield breaker

Pistols
• If you replaced the spring with anything other than another stock spring or the plunger tube with anything other than a different stock tube it is NOT a pistol. A SupaSplat and the like are NOT pistols.

Details
• Bring water. I’d advise not pop, not red bull, not sugar loaded crap: water is best but do what you like.
• Sunscreen: highly advised.
• 200 lbs of blasters and other materials: unnecessary. Bring what you need to play, what you need to trade, and maybe some things to show off.

Melee Rules
• NO barrel taps
• Pool Noodle, FBR/foam insulator, crappy dollar store melee, or ask me
• No Nerf swords, nothing with a stiff shaft/core/center, nothing wrapped in duct tape


360 DTC
Notes:
• Rounds will be no more than 10 minutes
• I know some of these aren’t nerf ammo: trust me, it does not lessen the game

360 DTC Point Gradients
• Stephens/Slugs – ZERO! Not a single damn point! Can still tag players, but no points.
• Stock ammo – 1
• Mongos/Ballistic Balls/Vortex discs or any disc ammo – 3
• Sock Grenades/Carpe balls/wiffle balls/ball pit balls (thrown) – 3
• Sonic Baz darts/Arrows/4B and UMB missiles – 5
• Stress Balls/small Nerf football/small plush toys (thrown) - 5
• Titan Rockets/Ironman Rockets/Draconas rockets – 10
• Homeade anything – Ask me, I will classify fairly
• Other crazy crap or weirdness - Ask me, I will classify fairly

Why I'm doing this - With these regulations we will maintain all the absurdly fun challenges involved as usual AND stretch our creative engineering to get higher points while NOT getting turned into pepperoni pizzas. And yes, if you want to stay on defensive whilst brandishing only melee you now can do it with a much high degree of safety and effectiveness.


HvZ Territories
HvZ Rules of Play
• 1-2 zombies at the start, rest are divided between 2 teams
• Humans and zombies are under blaster and dart regulations, see below
• If you are a human and are tagged by a human you are “dead”, and must remain in the spot you “died” in until a zombie resurrects you via touch
• Tagged zombies go to spawn points to re-enter the game

Objective
• Humans – claim every single territory
• Zombies – covert the filthy humans!

Blanket Regulations
• Stock ammo, silly ammo, or sock-grenades ONLY!
• No blaster more powerful than a Sonic Bazooka unless using sillies or multi-barreled.
• Zombies use only 2’ pool-noodle (I will provide some) or approved melee.
• Survivors get only one life, zombies are unlimited instant touch respawn.
  • 0
The Difference:
-Guns shoot bullets that kill people
-Blasters shoot darts that tag people

I do not play with guns.

I am just dipping in to confirm that yes, I am still alive. I'll be a possible attendee, as like every year! My school's doing assassin's, and I have recently slipped away from Magic: The Gathering and am once again happily thinking about Nerf all day! So, if all continues this way, I will probably show up.

EDIT: What counts as silly ammo? Missiles? Eliminator pistols? Bricks wrapped in spaghetti?

I'll be there, hopefully with guests this time. I also hope I won't be the only one from Chi-town this time either.

Don't worry so much about what other people will allow. Throw your own wars and kick your friends' asses until they all want one.

I am 100% superjacked to nerf with everyone who said they are/might show. In case you haven't heard: THIS is the biggest war in MN all year and the best possible one to bring friends and guests to.

Also we need a large attendance because I am giving away a metric butt-ton of things SUCH AS:

Two shells from projects I will never finish. FREE!
Posted Image

Hornet shells, a mostly working something-k, and a load of PVC, cpvc, and speed loaders. FREE!
Posted Image

A working IronMan rocket launcher, two working Sonic Bazookas, a UMB with most of the parts, and a bag of assorted junk/treasure. FREE!
Posted Image

Springs of all possible sizes and strengths, hundreds of nerf/buzzbee/lanard screws, an other hardware. FREE!
Posted Image

Friggin like three hundred dollars worth of couplers that I have not used and will never use: I want these to go to a home they will be used in. FREE!

If it is unclear: I AM LITERALLY GIVING THIS ALL AWAY.

SPAAAAAAAANNNNOOOOOOO!!!! C'mon, one week and no posts!? Don't forget that Minnesota's premier war is coming up! Also, I might be willing to host a mod party on one of the weekdays leading up to the war for those of you who don't have obligations.

Nerfmaggots, just a friendly reminder that with Spano a tich more than a week away that NOW is the time to make darts. Now, as in TODAY, if you have not done so already.

Also, you may want to take your jazzed-up superfunk blastomatic that you have been working on for weeks and fire it a few times so that it breaks now when you have time to fix it instead of at the war where your tears will yield nothing but ridicule.
