Was great fun. 20 of us. Nice close quarters room by room action.  As the light faded it got more tense. Had capture the flag, assassinate vip and finished with zombies which was hilarious. 

 

Need to get the word out and help grow the numbers.

Last night I attended the evening game at Urban Assault & Free Fire Zone which was pistol and shotguns only. They last ran this 2 years ago and are aiming to bring it back.

 

With only 20 players, this being the first event, the games were short and at a frenetic pace involving 2 large buildings on multiple floors. The game types were standard capture the flag, protect the VIP and sweep and clear.

 

The marshalls did a stellar job, motivating the teams and being in constant watch for how the games were running, following the action closely.

When night fell, the games took on a whole new dimension. Glow sticks gave a dim view of long corridors, and you had to choose when to use a torch and when to use stealth. Black multicam came into its own!

 

All in all this was a great night of gaming and because of the small teams, we had a great laugh!

 

The next night game is on 30th May at 6.45pm to 10.00pm - if you want something new, give it a go!

West wing and Hotel - Casino was the safe zone. Most games were restricted to one floor which helped make it a lot closer fought

Andy when we were defending that end room it was intense in the darkness waiting for them to search the rooms. We fought off the first wave did you fight off the second when I got hit?
