Rat in a maze

Got dragged off to play laser tag yesterday. I didn't really want to go, because the last time I played it (a few years ago) I was dreadful. I wasn't doing real well this time either, but after I was told to go hide in the maze, my game really picked up. In fact, I came third out of a field of 14. And the guy who came first (also a furry) was an expert so he doesn't count anyway IMO. I guess it's true, mazes really are the natural habitat of rats. I guess we just feel safer when we're not out in the open. Haal's back story is that he was a mercenary, so I was so pleased to finally do him proud.

I hate that game.

You came 3rd? I'm impressed. :-)

That sounds like a ton of fun. It shouldn't matter what place you come out, the point is to just get crazy and have a great time. But ... it's like the last time I went bowling, I expected to be horrible, but I actually came out in first place. I didn't know I was so good at ten-pin bowling till I was willing to try.

Laser Tag is fun. I once played it at this arena in Times Square which is long gone.

I'm afraid all I got was a few bruises ;) Ah well. It was... interesting! Don't know if I'd ever play again though, I'm not brave enough to really get into the game; unlike everyone else, I never dashed anywhere madly, I'd find a nice comfortable spot and snipe at people.

I actually HIT some of the people I aimed for, too XD Except Robbie. I ran out of paintballs trying to hit him as he pelted across the open.

Laser tag is a lot less full contact than paintball. I was tired at the end of it, but I certainly didn't go home with any bruises.

Quick note Marko didn't mention:
Marko did more then exceptionally well considering the experiance he had in it. I was rather suprised at how awesome he did on his first few times of knowing what to do. Not only did he come third but he actually posed a massive threat to alot of the experianced weekly players. Glad you had a good time and don't sell yourself short; you did awesomely. Next time I'll amke sure I'm not working and you can have a few 1st place shots to show :D

Yay for mazes! (Now if you can just ditch the little gun and beepy stuff... ;)

I'm curious about something. In England, they have hedge and turf mazes but these are almost unknown in the U.S. Instead, we tend to have cornfield mazes in the fall. What the situation like for an Australian rat?

Australia is pretty thin on the ground for mazes. There are maybe one or two hedge mazes in Australia, but I've never seen one. Who's got the water for them? The only mazes I've ever been in are wooden ones with dirt floors. Now you know I have to resort to laser tag. ;)
