What is laser tag?
Laser Tag... A game of wits and cunning, stealth and strategy. A game that at times seems almost real. Laser tag is generally an indoor game where you can play in teams or one on one in a pre built (static) arena.
The equipment used consists of:
This contains built in sensors and speakers. This is also the bit of equipment that you wear on your body. Each time a sensor is hit it stores the information to be downloaded into the computer at the end of the game. This is how the computer knows who won in the end.
All systems have a phaser of some description. These project a laser beam out of the barrel. The lasers used in this game are completely harmless to us. In fact they are no more powerful than the IR (infra red) beam that comes out of your TV remote control.
This has got to be the most fun game with the least amount of mess that anyone ever invented.
An arena is made up of lots of walls and sometimes has ramps to go up and obstacles such as barrels to hide behind. The arena is sometimes a dark place with few lights and smoke billowing out from somewhere deep inside. This is the Atmosphere......
When you come to play your game, the marshal (person overseeing the game) will explain how to put on your pack and how to use the phaser properly. They will also issue a verbal set of rules. I can tell you the most important one now:
If you are running you triple your chance of injury and endanger your fellow players. Other rules include:
NO PHYSICAL CONTACT
NO PHASER CONTACT
NO CLIMBING, JUMPING OR ROLLING ON THE FLOOR
BOTH HANDS ON THE PHASOR AT ALL TIMES
These are for your safety so please follow them.
Once your briefing is complete you will be allowed to enter the arena. This is where you will need your wits and cunning and your stealth and strategy to outwit your fellow players.
