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? :o 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?

It will all be good fun until someone loses an eye.

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

Um, are you sure it wasn’t an attempt at humour? That’s how I read it.

Yerp. I think that was a collision of the Hyundai Getz of humour with the B-Double truck of anti-humour.

Sense of humour failure? Possibly.

Ongoingly perplexed about why people comment on an event they have no interest in or desire to attend? Definetly.

C’mon, you need more foam in your armour.

Besides, who said I wasn’t interested in it? I think epic nerf wars are a great idea; something I could’ve got into in my university days. Now I have to be boring and go do some work, and then do some more work.

Looking so far as we’ve got 40 attending for the game.

Also worth mentioning we’ve a Nerf version of Battle Royale/Hunger Games coming up at the end of July: https://www.facebook.com/events/230502343704678/

Later in the year we’ll be doing our normal large scale Nerf battles and games of Human vs Zombies.
