Good evening everyone!
Just last weekend I attended a game with the Canberra and Southern NSW Dart Tag group. This game in particular was Game of Thrones themed, so people were encouraged to bring along their melee weapons in addition to their blasters. We don’t normally use melee so it was an interesting addition. There were also a bunch of people who took the theme to heart and really dressed up for it. Throughout the day we played an assortment of blaster/melee on blaster/melee games, and a few HvZ based games.
This round had been organised months in advance and well advertised so we were expecting a turn out better then usual. Unfortunately the preceding week had been stupidly cold and raining and based on the predictions for Saturday on the Friday night, things weren’t looking any better. To my surprise however, I awoke to shining blue skies. Packing the car was then a different story yet again. Holy crap was it cold; windy, wet and miserable. My housemate and I made out way out the park fully expecting to find practically nobody there. Boy were we surprised to see a sizable group of people.
We normally get 25 people to a game, maybe 35 if the stars all align. Our first game today, even in the miserable weather, saw a turnout of 40+. To say we were happy with that would be an understatement.
To kick things off we ran a few short games; melee vs blaster and melee/blaster vs melee/blaster. Here’s the initial briefing.
Throughout the day we transitioned into a number of different games. Capture the flag, straight elimination, HvZ, HvZ + juggernauts, tug of war, etc.
Unfortunately for all of you, I was playing most of those games and didn’t really get a chance to take photos. Therefore you’re basically stuck with photos from the last tug of war.
