Capture the Flag with Nerf Guns AGAIN!

  • May 25, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is no longer available

Due to the success of the last Capture the Flag we will be playing different versions of this game again during the month of May when it is warmer.  We are trying to get more players involved.  The more players we have the better it will be.  This will repeat again in June and July.  Please remember to bring one nerf gun, with all ammunition marked with your own name on it.  If you have more than one weapon and wish to share, please do so at your own leisure. Possible games will be : Hunger Games, Last man Standing, Zombie's versus Humans, and classic Capture the Flag.  This worked really well in the last game. 

As per usual the basic rules will include: No head or face shots allowed (it won't count) and we will have specific boundaries.  This will again be played in the woods, as this worked really well in our last game. 

 

Hope to see everyone come out for this warmer game of Capture the Flag!

    This looks really fun. I will be installing new flooring in my condo that day, but I would love to next time.

    Well, preliminary weather outlooks are promising (weather.com is reporting a mere 10% chance of rain on Sat, which is as low as it ever gets). Given where we'll be playing, I recommend coming dressed to get muddy, wear bug spray if you have it (I'll be bringing some with me that people can use too), and plan on both tossing anything you wear in the wash and taking a shower once you head home, as there *is* poison ivy in the woods (though it's avoidable, of course).

    Does anyone have an extra Nerf gun?

    May 22, 2013

    • Ian G.

      I will be bringing my arsenal again, and I suspect others might well bring extras again, so there should be some spares.

    It's a good thing I checked my email while at a stop light like any responsible driver would do...I was on my way over when you changed the date!

    Due to the lack of attendance this has been pushed to Memorial Day Weekend. I realize not everyone will be able to come, but I figured more people will come to the event at that time.

    I'm keeping my RSVP at YES because I fully expect this to be rescheduled and want to stay informed/keep my spot; but I will not be there tomorrow. I figure with 44 open spots, this wouldn't be an issue.

    i'm going to be late, but i'll try to be there by 1230

    Sorry mother's day plans

  • Benjamin U.

    That's right, this is Mother's day. Sorry, gotta bow out.

    Sunday May 12 is Mother's Day.

      That is the same thing I told Andrew when he scheduled the Singles Game Night event for the same day- Sunday May 12th.

    Due to the stormy weather scheduled for this Saturday, I am postponing this weekend's Capture the Flag game to Sunday. Feel free to come at the same time, same place!

    May 9, 2013

  • Benjamin U.

    If this gets rescheduled to Sunday, I'm in. Otherwise, I'll be going to King's Dominion.

    Sorry all. I must cancel.

    I may not be able to make it due to a possible change in my work schedule, but I am still holding out hope they'll leave me alone...

    May 7, 2013

  • Michael D

    Hey all, I was wondering if you were interested in moving this to Sunday?! It would be easier for those who go to game night, plus it would be easier on the host. Just thought i'd ask to see how everyone's schedule was looking. Otherwise, the day will stay the same. ;-)
    Let me know by Wednesday!

    • Ian G.

      At least according to today's forecast of this weekend, Sunday is likely to have better weather (20% chance, rather than Saturday's 60% chance). I mean, I'll happily run around in the mud in the rain (rain does limit the mosquitoes, after all!), but if we actually want people to show up, moving the event to the day with better weather might get better turnout. (Count this as a vote for moving to Sunday, but a vote against cancelling on Saturday if we *don't* move it to Sunday.)

    • Steven W.

      I couldn't do this on a Sunday due to my work schedule...

    Scheduling conflict... Next time.

    Count me in! If you want help with planning game mechanics, I'm up for that too.
