Who: Hosted by Jack Harkness, Anyone Invited
What: Laser Tag
Where: Townwide, with the apartments/house off limits and a few designated safe zones for people not participating/not comfortable with it so they don't have to be around it. Anyone asking for an area to be taken out of play got it added to the list.
When: Saturday (Backdated)
Ratings/Warnings: Fake violence?
Status: IC/OOC (Apologies, I put this in a note to throw up Saturday, and then forgot I hadn't posted it, it was One Of Those weekends.)
Jack and a few volunteers had built most of the parts and adapted weapons for the game. It was pretty easy to do when you had a lot of time on your hands and people tended to show up with a lot of spare parts they had no use for, and then disappear again and leave them behind. Jack was good with salvage.
By the time everything was set up, he found that someone else had already stepped up to divide up teams. Jack was happy to let Melinda May take that job over, save to use gamerunner's privilege to get himself and Jim Kirk tossed onto a team with Captain America, for the sake of a Captain-Heavy squad.
It worked out to be a three-team matchup with Melinda, and no one worried too much about an even matchup - it was hard to account for superpowers or people who would wildly cheat by claiming they don't die so one shot doesn't count, or building elaborate shields that deflect lasers, or flying out of range or whatever else people would try.
OOC: I didn't assign teams so people could say they were wherever they want, just figure three teams in total. The end was declared a tie because both teams had members no one could get a tag in on. Prizes were awarded in the form of gift certificates or ridiculous trophies for things like most dramatic death scene, most humiliating death, best backstab, first person to shoot their own team member, etc. Feel free to make up your own. It's late so no need to check in if you don't want to - I just figured I'd still put it up for reference. Sorry guys.
