What is a funshop?

  • Do you have a hobby or something you are passionate about that you are willing to share? It could be a game, a craft, a popular toy, or an idea.
  • Funshops are free to attend. Funshops typically last an hour, and they can be attended – and hosted – by anyone.
  • The host is responsible for any materials needed for the funshop, although some people request that participants bring items if they have them, such as materials for artist trading cards, at an ATC funshop.
  • Some examples of funshops include painted mandalas, shopkins, pokemon, Dr. Who, my little pony, Hamilton, minecraft, making a vision board, swing dancing…the list goes on and on!

Sign up for sessions is mandatory, and if you are not signed up and there are no open slots you will be turned away. Please reserve the late session (8pm-midnight) for more experienced players. The early sessions are for new players/younger players. Here is the link to the google doc for sign ups and will try to accommodate players into the same party that want to adventure together. Each day’s session will be the same adventure, so if there is a workshop at 8pm that you want to attend, just sign up for the earlier sessions and you won’t miss a thing. You may bring a homemade character of 3rd-5th level, however I do reserve the right to nerf any magic items that will unbalance the game. I will have premade characters available.

Game Rules

 

Monday: Zombie Tag

Zombies must walk. They are not allowed to run, jump, lunge, speed walk, skip, etc. Zombies should be moving much slower than if they were allowed to run.

To keep the game moving, if there is ever a disagreement about whether or not a player was tagged, then they are tagged.

If someone asks if you are a Zombie or Survivor, you must answer truthfully, either verbally or with your thumb. Thumbs up means survivor, thumbs down means zombie.

If you take a break from the game, immediately leave the playing area. If you return or join a game in the middle you will be a zombie. Before you join, you must announce to everyone nearby that you are joining, and then wait 10 seconds.

No climbing over or crawling under tables.

Any issues that come up during the game should be brought to the attention of a referee.

 

Tuesday: Glow In The Dark Capture The Flag

To tag someone, you must touch them with at least one hand while at least one part of their body is on your side of the room. If you are tagged, you must walk directly to the other team’s jail. While walking to jail, you cannot tag someone, get in someone’s way, pick up or move a flag, or be freed from jail. If you are holding a flag when you are tagged, you must immediately set it down where you were tagged. No throwing the flag.

When you tag your opponent’s jail or anyone inside of it, everyone inside of it is immediately free and must leave the jail. You and everyone who was just freed can be immediately tagged and sent back to jail, but cannot go back to tag the jail until after they have made it back to their side of the room.

If there is a flag on your side not in the flag zone, you should pick it up and put it in your flag zone.

Players cannot be within their own flag zone, or within 10 feet of their own jail, unless a free opponent is also in those boundaries.

If you take a break from the game, you should immediately leave the playing area. If you join, or return in the middle of a game, you must start on your side of the room, and must announce to everyone nearby that you’re joining, and then wait 10 seconds.

If you were in jail when you took a break from the game, you must start in jail if you want to return. You still have to announce to everyone nearby that you’re rejoining, and then wait 10 seconds.

Because this game is played in the dark, there is some danger of someone getting hurt. Please play at your own risk, and be careful of other players and objects. It is also important that you are respectful of everyone’s personal space. Dangerous or inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated. All players should keep their glow sticks on and in view at all times.

Any issues that come up during the game should be brought to the attention of a referee.

If there is ever an emergency, you should immediately stop where you are and shout “lights on.” If you hear someone else shouting “lights on,” you should immediately stop and repeat “lights on.” The game will resume when the emergency has been dealt with and all players are ready.

 

Wednesday: Lazer Tag

No physical contact between players. Players are meant to shoot other players from different teams, but do not physically touch each other. This is to avoid injuries; physically stronger players do not have an advantage. There will be a line in the middle of the floor. Teams do not cross the line.

Players aim and shoot at the laser taggers carried by opponents.

Please bring your Nerf/Hasbro lazer taggers – we do not have extras.

If you don’t own a tagger, they can be purchased inexpensively at Amazon or Ebay. You can only buy them in a two-pack. They take 6 AA batteries. Older NERF Taggers are spotty – some of them work, and some of them don’t.

Here is the best deal on new Nerf Lazer Taggers…
https://www.amazon.com/Nerf-Lazer-Phoenix-Tagger-2-Pack/dp/B00DW1JT2O/

You can buy used taggers at a lower price on Ebay.
