(11/8) Update: Signups now available on Haverticket! go.haverford.edu/tickets/
It’s time again for Battlefield Nerf! Darts will fly, chaos will ensue, and champions will be crowned.
The event will take place on Saturday, November 16th and sign-ups are live now!
For those new to BFN, or in need of a refresher here is what it’s all about:
Sign-ups: Just pick a team name, team captain, and up to 5 other players for your team. After this, your Captain will get all the important info about match times.
Rules of the Game:
The objective is to capture the other team’s flag and return it safely to your flag area.
A maximum of 6 players per team may participate.
The game is played on the honor system; if you get tagged, you are done, and you call yourself out.
Each team’s flag will be positioned in front of their starting bunker area.
To capture the flag, an individual must successfully return the opposing team’s flag to their flag area. In order for a capture to count, the capturing team’s flag must be in it’s home flag area. That is, both flags must be together in a flag area.
If the flag carrier is tagged, they drop the flag immediately. There may be no exchanging of the flag between teammates at any time. If the flag is dropped, it can be picked up by either team.
No shooting while holding the flag. This means that in the event of a 1 on 1 situation, the last two players must duel.
A tagged player may rejoin the game by touching their own flag, so long as it is within the original flag area. In order for players to rejoin, the team must return their flag into the home area if it has been taken by the other team.
The round ends when all of the players on one team are eliminated, or when a flag is captured.
The matches will be best 2 of 3 rounds.
Prizes: 1st place – Six $10 Gift Cards to Chipotle and BFN Shirts; 2nd place – BFN Shirts; 3rd place – Six $5 Gift Cards to Kiwi
Once again, matches will be held Saturday, November 16, from 12:00 p.m. to 6 p.m in Ryan Gym.
Note: Please show up 10 min prior to your match, although you only need to be present for your team’s matches.
It should be pretty awesome, so sign up your team and come play some Nerf!
