Surely a phalanx formation would be possible. Wonder if artillery is allowed?

I can’t decide if I should laugh or sign up. Maybe both.

Whoever thought up ‘game of foams’ deserves a medal. A very big shiny one suitable for use as a shield.

I might also add that some form of eye protection is compulsory at all our events. Prescription glasses and sun glasses are OK.

N-Strike is the pull-back single shot one with the red-light, yeah? 😮 I’m not ashamed to say that that’s what I asked my parents to get me for my 20th. Are you allowed to have reserve darts as long as you’re using semi-auto nerf-guns?

We’re only using single shot pistols, and you can have as many darts as you can carry.
