Nerf Parties Leeds Nerf Party and Nerf War Frequently Asked Questions. You should read them!

Q. How does your Nerf Party and Nerf War pricing work?

A. We charge £2 per participant per hour for blaster rental, darts and eye protection for our regular blast Nerf Wars. A Nerf War Master to run your event and provide mobstacles costs £40 per hour. So, for example, 20 participants for one hour with a Nerf War Master costs:

£2 x 20 participants x 1 hour = £40  PLUS £40 x 1 hour = £40 WHICH EQUALS £80

One and a half hours as above would be £120.

Two hours would be £160.

For outdoor Nerf wars, we charge an extra £10 because it’s harder to recover darts when there aren’t walls to stop them from flying off over fences or otherwise into the ether of the woods!

Additionally, we charge for travel when venturing far from home!

Our Adult Nerf Wars, are charged at £4 per participant per hour plus £40 per hour for a Nerf War Master. You’ll get to use adult Nerf guns like these!

Our Premium Nerf Gun Party events cost £140 for up to 16 participants for one hour.

Our Team Building Blast events are charged at the same rate as Adult Nerf Wars, but with more scope for discounts for Nerf events lasting longer or catering for more participants.

Q. What’s your privacy policy and how are you complying with the new 2018 GDPR?

Following is a summary of the data we hold, what we do with it and why.

If you’ve made an initial inquiry about a Nerf war at your event, we hold your name, email address and telephone number. This information is transferred from Microsoft Outlook or Facebook, depending on how you got in touch, to a Google Docs spreadsheet. We record this information on a spreadsheet to help us make sure we don’t double book events, or book more parties than we have Nerf War Masters for. There are three people who’ll see this: The person answering your inquiry and the two GamesMasters.

If unused, this information is deleted from the spreadsheet when the date you enquired about has passed.

If you make a booking and have a party or Nerf war with us, we maintain a record of your name and contact details for one months in case we need to get in touch about the event. Then we delete your details from our spreadsheet.

Additionally, if you make a booking and have a party or Nerf war with us, we ask you if you’re OK with photos and video being taken for promotional purposes. You can see how we use these by scrolling down our website, checking out our Facebook page and viewing some of our Media there. We use media from events because a picture is worth a thousand words, and we want to share memories of your event with you as well as show off what we do best.

None of the pictures or video clips are posted, tagged or stored with personally identifiable information such as names, so you’re the only one who’ll know who’s in them, unless you tag them otherwise on Facebook. This data is also held on external storage devices and hard drives for use in future promotional slide shows or trailers, often with funky music. These are all saved without personally identifiable file names.

You can access the photos you’ve said we can take at any time on Facebook or the Nerf Parties Leeds Website. Of course, you have a right to ask for any pictures you don’t like to be taken down and deleted from our records. Just ask if that’s the case, and supply the date of your event so we can identify the photos to remove them from everywhere we have them.

If you leave us a review on Facebook, we may use your name to get in touch with you if you win one of our prize draws. Please do forgive us for that!

Q. So what’s the point of Nerf Wars?

A. Nerf Wars are perfect for team building, promoting physical activity, fitness, hand eye coordination, teamwork and they’re just plain fun! Plus you can do them anywhere without the fear of breaking something or getting messy.

Q. And Adult Nerf Wars?

A. With the new Nerf Rival Kronos blasters we use, Adult Nerf Wars are perfect for team building within corporate and office settings, promoting communication and teamwork, fitness and, again, they’re fun and won’t destroy your office or school!

Q. Can Nerf wars be run anywhere?

A. Because of the ease of setting up, your Nerf war can run anywhere where there is enough physical space! See the slide-show below for pictures of Nerf arenas set up in a social club, a community center, an indoor football pitch, church halls, a school playing field, a scout hut, and the grounds of two other community centers. Get in touch to ask for advice and take a look at the Nerf Venues we’ve used in the past (listed above)!

Q. How does the Nerf Target Range set up look?

Like this:

Q. What types of Nerf blasters will I be using?

A. You’ll be using Nerf Parties Leeds’ popular revolver style blasters such as the Nerf Elite Strongarm, Nerf Rebelle Super Stripes and the Nerf Rebelle Sweet Revenge. These are easy to load and use and more fun than just a single shot blaster, although we have some of those too. The best Nerf gun for a Nerf war, in my opinion though, is one of these!

Q. What sort of cover and Nerf obstacles do you provide?

A. Your safety is a key element of a fun Nerf Parties Leeds event. Nobody will be having fun if they get taken out of a game due to an unnecessary mishap. For this reason, your Nerf arena will be have soft, light, popup Nerf obstacles which won’t hurt if run into by participants. We have around 40 of these! To add atmosphere, your base mobstacles will be covered with camouflage netting (camo netting) to build a fast-past game arena with strategic choke points, cover and bases which are coloured differently (using arctic blue and desert tan netting) to the rest of the field and are easily identifiable.

Q. Can you cater for our large group?

A. In short, your large group wont be a problem! Your Nerf War Master are used to running large events! Your Nerf War will be organised by people who also run regular Nerf War Grim Up Nerf (attracting up to 100 participants from around the country) and the regular Foam Dart Thunder Nerf War at the Works Skate Park in Leeds (catering for up to 60 Nerfers at a time) and Mags On The Ramps in Halifax. Get in touch and ask about discounts for large groups and longer events!

Q. How do you compare with other Nerf party providers around Leeds and Bradford?

A. Pretty well! Take a look:

Action Zone Nerf Parties (mobile)

Fantasticparties.com run Nerf parties around Leeds (mobile)

Xtremenerfcombat do Nerf Parties in Lancashire. Not exactly Leeds and Bradford, but there it is! (mobile)

Q. What are the benefits of having a Nerf Parties Leeds Nerf War?

A. If you’re looking for a unique activity to have at your event, Nerf wars are a great way to engage everyone from primary school age to adults. Whilst some people won’t play football or rugby, let alone happily run around a track, put a Nerf blaster in their hand, give them an objective and they’re off!

We play Nerf game modes which encourage communication, teamwork and cooperation. Sprinting to mission objectives, ducking and diving to avoid darts and testing your stamina as zombie hoards home in on you… participating in Nerf games gives you an intrinsically motivating workout without realising it!

You can choose where you Nerf and we’ll run your Nerf war where you are at your venue. We can advise you when selecting a venue for a known group size. Depending on the venue, the games master may choose to use cardboard or pop up mobstacles (movable obstacles used to provide cover) to flesh out your Nerfing arena, at no extra cost to you.

Q. Do I have to organise a Nerf party to Nerf?

A. Nope. There are several fantastic not for profit and commercial organisations who run Nerf Wars around the Leeds area. Here are the links for them too:

Grim Up Nerf has been running Nerf Wars in Leeds and Nerf Wars in Bradford since January 2016. They ask for a voluntary donation of £1 for three hours of well run Nerfing (money goes towards darts and other kit to develop new game types) and usually meet on the second Saturday of every month at a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints building in Farsley or Tong. They have a YouTube channel. It’s run by Britnerf enthusiasts, one of whom also has his own YouTube channel.

Foam Dart Thunder has been running skate park based Nerf Wars in Scotland for some time now. They’ve made the leap into England and are now running Nerf Wars in Leeds at a skate park called The Works. Click here for The Works Facebook page. Click here to buy a ticket for the event.  Tickets cost £10 for a several hour Nerf War in a highly unique venue! There’s a Netmum’s advert too!

I am not your only option! I’ve compiled a list of other providers too!

Q. Could I just organise my own Nerf War?

A. Yes! Yes you could! And here are some ideas to help!

Q. Can you help with Nerf party ideas?

A. Of Course! Nerf party ideas are our speciality! We’ve been to many a kids Nerf party and Nerf birthday party and we’re more than happy to help out to make your event run smoothly!

Q. What are Nerf Parties Leeds’ favourite Nerf War Nerf games?

A. Our Nerf wars are tailored to our participants and their needs, wants and ability, but we love running these Nerf games… they’re Nerf war classics:

  1. Free for all
  2. Blob
  3. Team Freeze Tag
  4. Flux
  5. King of the Hill
  6. Volleybomb
  7. Humans Vs Zombies

We’ve prepared this helpful website with game rules so that you know how to play them!

Q. Are Nerf Guns Dangerous?

A. In short, yes. As with any activity involving fast moving objects and people such as football, cricket, tennis, golf, running, riding a scooter, cycling or driving, precautions need to be taken to manage risk.

Q. How does Nerf Parties Leeds manage the risks of Nerfing?

A. At Nerf Parties Leeds, we use stock (unmodified) Nerf blasters. This means that the foam darts fired from them won’t cause the bruising (another word for internal bleeding and swelling!) or welts associated with air soft or paintball.
It doesn’t take an NHS doctor to recognise that being hit in the eye is clearly the major risk in Nerfing. At Nerf Parties Leeds, we insist on eye protection being worn at all times during games and eye protection only being removed between games whilst all blasters are placed on the ground. Having been involved in almost 100 hours of Nerf Wars catering for over 1000 Nerfers, we have found this to be the best way to avoid accidents.
Check out this video reviewing a provider of child-size eye protection!
At Nerf Parties Leeds, we use either stock Nerf darts, or third party darts generally accepted by the Nerfing community as safe. This means we avoid cheap, hard-tipped “Full Vinyl Jacket” darts, a variant shunned by much of the Nerfing community. Third party darts regarded as safe by the Nerfing community include “Koosh”, “Waffle”, “Accufake” and “X-shot”. Our dart pool is composed only of safe darts such as these and stock Nerf Elite and Accustrike darts.
Nerf Parties Leeds Nerf Wars are run by an experienced Nerf War Master, who is great at directing play and directing participant enthusiasm. An experienced mainstream teacher, he identifies challenging or high risk kids quickly and shuts down dangerous behaviour almost before it surfaces. As a former ski instructor, he knows safety comes first and ensures fun whilst maintaining a safe field of play.
Finally, at Nerf Parties Leeds, we only use soft, pop-up mobstacles. Kids don’t always look where they’re going, so it’s important that if they run into a mobstacle, it is softer than them! It is next to impossible to injure yourself by running into our mobstacles! Additionally, we don’t allow participants to be inside the mobstacles at time of play, as this may lead to kids tripping over each other!

Q. Is there any way I can completely remove the risk from my kids’ party?

A. Nerf Parties Leeds also offers the option of “Snowball Wars”. Like Nerf wars but with artificial snow balls which you’d struggle to break an egg with but are a heck of a lot of fun. Just ask!

Q. Isn’t that risky too?

A. It’s about as risky as a bubble-wrap party. If you’re serious, we’ll run one of those for you too.

Q. This “Nerf War Master”… does he know what he’s doing?

A. You be the judge!

Justajolt, our kind of head Nerf War Master, organises a monthly community Nerf event attracting up to 100 people from all over the country, regular commercial Nerf events at The Works Skatepark in Leeds and Mags On The Ramps in Halifax, runs a Nerf YouTube channel and has a substantial collection of Nerf blasters and attachments.

Collectively, our Nerf war masters have been involved in running over 150 Nerf events, serving almost 3000 Nerfers during over 200 hours of Nerf Wars.

They’ve run Nerf Wars in around 40 different venues around North, West and South Yorkshire, not to mention one on the Isle of Wight, both indoors and outdoors for private parties, school holiday clubs, corporate groups, commercial Nerf events and not for profit Nerf events.

Feedback from his events on Facebook and Netmums highlight their organisation and control whilst running Nerf wars (not surprising considering his experience as a mainstream classroom teacher!) as well as their infectious enthusiasm.

Q. Is there an upper age limit for Nerf Wars and Nerf Games?

A. Well, let’s put it like this… there are regular Nerf events around the country where grown men play with Nerf blasters, sometimes modified to hit as hard as paintball guns! They’re fantastic communities and you should get in touch with one!

Here’s a video showing the Nerf Rival Artemis being used at one such event!

Q. Wait… why couldn’t I just have a paintball party?

A. You could! It’s a great option for people who like this sort of thing! So is air-soft. I choose to Nerf simply because I love the fun of that sort of thing and Nerfing means I can do it without having to go to a special arena. You can Nerf anywhere any time!

 

Q. So, shouldn’t you have a bunch of logos at the bottom of your page showing some of your Nerf War clientele or something?

A. Clientele… that’s posh word! I have no idea, but why not. Here you go:
