In Topic: Nerf war in Seattle (Greenlake area)

04 January 2017 - 04:12 PM

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!

Make sure that everything is lining up in the tracks in the shell.  The biggest one ( and most likely the cause ) is that the bolt sled is slipping out a little bit as you put it back together.  Also, there is a peg near the front of the plunger tube, that has to sit in the small hole in the shell.  Otherwise the bolt won't work properly.

Pretty good war guy's. Had a decent turn out.


Seeing everyone again

Having great weather with a nice breeze to keep us cool

Pat's and my brother's awesome ninja moves! Great job!

Effeminate zombie rounds

Awesome dodge ball matches

Overall a pretty good war! I will sort through the pics and hope to get them up soon.

After a few days of thinking I believe I am going to change the age policy to 14 and older to participate. This is due too having to babysit two young boys while their parents failed to respect the end time. I am too responsible to leave two young boys alone in an empty park. This started a domino effect ruining other peoples plans as I was very late to pick up my dog, and it just went down hill from there. I am not a babysitter and it is no fun to listen too ten year old's complain that everyone is stealing their stuff. This new change isn't meant to offend anyone but to continue making this great for those of us who want it to be a lot of fun.

Any idea how long this is going to go till?

It looks like it will be a small war, so probably 2:30 or 3:00-ish.

I am all packed and I'm going to be heading on the road soon. I'll see you guys on the field!!!!

I'm going to Seriously try coming to this seeing as I live in Sammamish... Hope I'm not busy with other plans.

Should we mark our darts somehow?

You can if you want. We all collect the darts together then sort them and if any are not claimed they go into the community bin.

Looking forward to seeing everyone on the field!!
