Welcome to Week 2 of Dart Wars.
As a reminder, Dart Wars is a Big Freakin’ Deal here. I know this because teenagers are actually using their cell phones to have conversations. Talking conversations, not just texting.
I know. Shocking. Who would have thought?
Dart Wars involves teams (of up to 5 players and a sub) using Nerf guns to shoot players on an opposing team. No shooting on school property. No causing anyone to be late for school. No shooting at work. No breaking into homes (although you can shoot through an open door—or be invited in). Each series goes from midnight (12:01am) Monday morning to midnight (11:59pm) Friday night. Unless there’s a tie in which case there’s a shootout on Saturday.
Dart Wars also involves high emotion, unfettered outrage, brownies, yelling, middle of the night forays into enemy territory, stakeouts, cookies, strategy discussions to rival Pentagon briefings, hiding, caffeine, Twitter taunts, overuse of the garage door, and exhaustion.
Teams have to buy in to play Dart Wars. After Week One, losing teams have the option of buying in again to stay alive and continue playing. I believe after this week, elimination is permanent.
Pi’s team is still alive and in play, after a victorious Week 1 (they had 2 kills [it should have been more but the judges ruled against them]) and no one their team was shot.
Victory! Triumph! On to Week 2!
