Lasergame

About laser tag, or lasergame (that's what it is called in Sweden), there is a lasergame place I have been to earlier, close to the Fyrishov sports center, called Latitude-59:

http://www.latitude-59.se/pages/lasergame.html

Contact: [masked], or tel:[masked]

Price: minimum 780 kr for twelve people or less (so 65 kr per player), and another 65 kr for every additional participant after the first twelve.

Activity: The game goes on for twenty minutes, which feel extremely long when you are in there. You carry a vest that beeps when it is hit by someone else's laser. The lasers are weak and don't hurt your eyes. Two teams compete, on two floors with dark walls and hiding places and neon lights (as seen in the pictures on the website). When you are hit you can't shoot or be shot for a few seconds, giving you time to retreat to a safer position. You have a limited number of shots, and when you have used them all you need to reload by holding up your gun in front of your team's "base", which is a screen in the wall. The other team will try to capture your "base" by shooting at it at close range for thirty seconds, but that actually never happens since you will never be able to stand there for half a minute without being hit by someone.

Afterward you get a score sheet showing how many times you hit the other team and how many times you were hit. The statistics are pretty thorough, showing that Player 4 hit Player 7 12 times, etc. (Embarrassing if you have hit a lot of people on your own team!)

Lots of fun in the longest twenty minutes of your life!

    I think this event sounds like great fun, but I feel totally out of shape today, and I don't want to show up and ruin the party. I had a flu shot recently and suspect its the side effects kicking in. Not fit to laser anyone today, I'm afraid. Wish you a brilliant day!!! And sorry for the late notice.

    Extra info:

    --You do NOT need indoor shoes apparently. Maybe that's just in the winter. I removed that from the description now, so just wear your ordinary shoes.

    --Show up 15-20 minutes before the game starts at 2 pm. They will give us some instructions about how to put on the vests and such. (Don't hit people with your rifle.)

    --Do you know where the police station is? This is the same street, just a bit north of the station.

    --You can buy refreshments at Latitude-59, or we can go to Fyrishov sports center afterward if anyone feels up to it. It is maybe a ten-minute walk.

      We meet inside and outside the Latitude-59. It is not so big that you could get lost inside. Possibly I will be standing outside for some of the time, so look for someone in a black coat. The building is right next to the big car road though, on the right side of the road, so it is not hard to find.

      ...Yes, we meet at 13.40. See you then! Don't forget to bring 65 kr. And maybe in the future we could do forty minutes instead of twenty, who knows. (That's double the price though.) But for any future lasergame someone else will have to step up and arrange it, because in general I hate organizing things.

      Initially, let's say Saturday on November the 9th, at 1 pm. We should have at least twelve people for this event

    I am very keen, but...why only 20 minutes? Coming from England I am used to laser tag lasting at least an hour...

      Hey, I have seen a laser-tag arena in London, in a big gaming center, can't recall the name right now. Impressive though. Well, here in the sticks a game lasts only twenty minutes; I think people would start dropping out of exhaustion if it went on for an hour.
