April Weekend Game: SF Cherry Blossom Festival

  • Apr 12, 2014 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hey everyone. I've been thinking about it for a bit, and decided we should try to get Jericho going during some public outdoor events. The first one we will be doing this year will take place during the annual Japan Town Cherry Blossom Festival. Because there will be crowds and law enforcement, we're going to make a few adjustments to the game besides the bandana rule. For this one, we will ONLY be using FRONT LOADING SINGLE SHOT BLASTERS(I will provide some if necessary). So not only are clip fed and electric blasters out, but everything else besides those two. The second thing will be that this game will have shorter rounds with closer distances(round length still tbd), or perhaps even multiple pickup locations. I'm hoping these changes will get the gameplay inside buildings and within the crowds, in turn encouraging some serious old school spy action. Because we will be playing in a very condensed area that will attract more attention than usual, I do actually want to keep this game at about thirty players at most. If you do intend on not going, please adjust your RSVP accordingly so those on the wait list can RSVP.

For the moment, the plan is to meet at Raymond Kimbell Playground, then work our way into the festival and surrounding areas. But please double check here the night before the game to make sure that location hasn't changed. Also since the festival is going on, traffic will be more troublesome than normal, and parking will be significantly more difficult this day, so please be prepared to arrive early. Also, in case meetup is down for whatever reason like last month, I can be contacted directly at bjersando at google mail. Hopefully that should cover everything. Don't forget your bandana and your single shot blaster and I'll see you in a few weeks!

    Thanks for coming out yesterday everybody. It seems like we all had a lot of fun playing amongst the crowds and staying within a concentrated area as opposed to the wide stretch of area we normally play in. With that said, the next weekend game will take place on the day of Bay to Breakers, with the same weapon restrictions and all. Time is still TBD, so any suggestions would be appreciated. I just think it should be late enough for us to be able to get to the game in time(traffic again), but early enough to get it on the mayhem downtown.

    I gave away/lost my Jolts in favor of the Elite (http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20121206195409/nerf/images/a/a3/Nerf_N_strike_elite_Triad_ex_3.jpg). It is basically the same gun, it just holds 3 bullets. Is that one acceptable for this game, or is it important that it be a single shot?

      I like how that came up at nearly four in the morning lol. But yes, I'll have one for you.

    So for those who don't want to use the printed missions and want a PDF instead, here are today's links(passwords will be given out during the game):

    For those who are late or get lost/separated during the game, starting location for Round 2 will be at Sutter and Laguna. Round 3 will be at O'Farrell and Fillmore. Round 4 will be at Post and Gough. If you're running late and end up making it to one of the later starting locations, please keep a reasonable distance from the game and remaining players. If anything, wear your bandana around your neck so those still alive don't reveal themselves by going after non-players.

    I've spoken to at least one person who wants to know if anyone has a spare gun & bandanna, I'm assuming there might be more. Could someone bring a few extras of each?

      I'll have a bag of ammo to pass around(we shouldn't need too much today considering the rules and areas), and I have a couple more Jolts besides the few that I've promised to people already. I actually don't know what happened to all my bandanas over the past few months since I haven't played HvZ in ages, so I'll stop by Daiso for some while I set up.

      To be honest, we're probably going to be closer to being finished at that point. You're likely to end up joining us for last round.

    I have a spare jolt and a bunch of spare Reflexes. I'll bring those.
