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.

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

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

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

Both. Clearly both.

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

Sounds kinda fun, really dunnit? 😀 If I hadn’t broken my leg last year I might have gone and had a go.

…or was it an arrow in the knee?

Sorry. I’ll be going now.

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