Much of what I'd like to say have already been stated by oodalumps in this thread, though the mention of wars wasn't very large, and I'm hoping to expand that. There have been a few threads about such things on our website, K'nex Innovation, but nobody really starting to host a war just yet. I'm hoping to start one up here in my home town in the spring, a lot of the current k'nexers live in Ohio and Michigan.
In my opinion, K'nex guns and Nerf blasters are somewhat similar in such aspects as the ranges they can achieve, reload time, modifications can be made, the list can go on. I feel that a K'nex war modeled after Nerf wars would work quite well, with a few rules changed of course.
The main reason I started this topic was mostly to gather opinions and ideas for these types of wars. I realize that many of you don't have any idea of what these guns can do, so I'll show off some of the guns we've created. Many of the following are accompanied by videos.
My pride and joy, and latest creation, K'nexsayer (take a guess as to what that's based off of):
Basic pistol (old):
A few from oodalumps:
One from one of my favorite members:
Et cetera. Some of these guns are classics, some are newer. I've definitely posted more, but I just don't think they're as good as the one I have posted above. There are many, many, many more guns to be seen. Unfortunately, lots of people want to use guns with magazines in their handles at any war they could go to. That's fine and dandy for an indoor war, but I'm planning on hosting outdoor wars, so these types of guns would be completely useless (they shoot like 20 feet). Some of their opinions are posted here.
Blah, wall of text. Go ahead and post opinions, we'd love to hear what you guys think.
