I try to host monthly so I hope you can make it to One. Also I suggest you join Pacific West North Nerf (pwnn) and Olympia Foam Society in Facebook. I'm the only one from either who posts to nerfhaven so you are missing out on a lot of wars

In Topic: Nerf war in Seattle (Greenlake area)

Nisa!! long time no see.  It is good to see some people from back in the day still Nerf! 

 

Not trying to highjack your thread, just want to give you some points in addition to what Nisabuso said:

 

-Be very clear on your rules, think things through.  EX: barrel taps? do you allow people to tap other players with thier blasters instead of shooting them? Headshots? do you encourage them or out time ban them?  Melee weapons? Shields? The list goes on.  These are just a few things to consider.  Thinking things through all the way saves everyone the hassle and trouble of running into these circumstances.  Go over the rules of each round before it starts. 

 

-Eye protection should be mandatory, especially if you are allowing minors to participate.  Don't want to get yourself in trouble with an upset parent if they accidently get hurt.

 

-minors: anyone under 18 should be accompanied by an adult.  You are not their baby sitter and you don't want that responsibility.

 

-Blaster restrictions should be considered.  When I ran my wars I allowed anything under 150'.  If anything could shoot over that is banned or it needs to have multiple barrels to reduce range. 

 

-Check the dates for the site.  make sure you are not over lapping with another event scheduled for that day.  also give ample notice, 1 month is ideal but at least 2 weeks.  People need to get time off work or plan for it.  I would have loved to have come to this but I already have plans for this day. 

 

-Dart restrictions.  Go over what type of darts you allow.  Slugs ok? Glue domes? Keep things nice and clear on what you want at your war. 

 

-Have a rough agenda for how you want the day to go, game wise. Are you playing death match all day? Are you going to mix it up and add different game types?  If you haven't already I suggest reading through the war page forum and look up different game types.  Better yet, invent a new one!! Trying out new and different game types was one of my favorite things to do.

 

-Start time and end time: Give people an idea of how long you want to play.  Not saying all players will be there all day, but giving them an idea of an end time is a good idea.  Also, 2pm is a little late in the day to start, especially since it still is getting dark around 4-5 pm.  Try and have your wars at an earlier time, 11am is a good start time. 

 

 

These are just a few example/things to consider.  This is your war and you don't have to listen, just want to help you get off to the right start.  If you have any questions or want more feedback don't hesitate to ask.  Nisaburo and myself have been in this game for a long time.  I'm looking forward to seeing how this goes!  I'm looking forward to the next one so I can participate and hopefully see some old Nerf buddies again!

Thank you for bringing up some of these things, this is the first war that I am hosting so I am not sure exactly the best way to go about things. I will be editing the post to answer some questions that I have seen, regarding restrictions and unaccompanied minors and so on.
