First of all, i would like to say thanks to all the BritNerfers who helped me get this going on discord. I couldn't have done it without them.

So, the first Danish war was a huge succes! I got way more participants than i had expected in my wildest dreams. 20 kids from around the school we played on. All of them very happy and tired by the end of the day. Gametypes were infection, 6 shots, meatgrinder and frezeetag, and they were all amazing. The school had a good balance of cover and open area. The feedback i got both at the event and afterwards on Facebook were very posetive, and asking for the next war, which i already have a date for.
However, i learned a lot of things that need fixing before next time:

Dart pool
With 20 kids, plus me and a few friends who helped me organize it, 1000 darts simply weren't enough. That is already fixed with 2000 waffle tips on the way.
Age limit
For he first game i thougt i needed as many people as possible, and therefor hadn't set an age limit. We had a 5 year old running around with a mastodon which were a funny sight, but he was too young. I would set an agelimit og 7 for the next game.
Teams
I need the get more vest for reconising teams. Good thing is, my local supermarket have them for sale at the moment, so that will be fixed before next week.

All in all it was an amazing experience seeing the labor i put into this pay off, and it won't be the last time i do it!

Fantastic work mate! How did the rapidstrike do?
If there was any other way of doing this without being the biggest damn hero you have ever met..  I'd still do this.

It was great, no failures or problems. However i didn't have enough mags, and it was a bit too high powered for this game

Great start to your event!

At Grim up Nerf we spilt the afternoon into two sessions. The first is open to all and we encourage the use of stock or lightly modded blasters. After a couple of hours of games the younger players go home happy and the 13+ players get to bring out their big boys (and girls) toys.

These are usually the more high powered blasters and the expectation is the older players can cope with the increase in FPS and rates of fire.

Congratulations on your first war! Feels good to get off the mark doesn't it?

Looking forward to hearing about your future events :)

If you ever have enough mags for your rapidstrike.. you stopped using the rapidstrike!

This sounds great hope you guys can keep it running!
