Last weekend (yeah, the cold, windy, drizzly one) my son attended his good friend's 13th birthday party. A quick trip up Adelaide's South Eastern Freeway and taking the turn-off at the Crafers exit soon saw us at our first ever game of outdoor laser skirmish.

Celebrations consisted of a 1.5 hour tour of duty, outdoors in the elements at 2 Worlds Collide's base camp - at The Gunyah (enter through Gate 1 at Woodhouse Activity Centre, Piccadilly).

There were two parties of hyper-excited boys and one adult host. "How's he going to manage them?" more than one of us wondered. Masterfully, in military style, with ease and humour was the answer as FENRIZ (aka Chris) stole the show and quickly engaged the boys with his camo garb and unique style of humour which regular gamers and military enthusiasts would truly appreciate.

Onlookers (parents and the like) were entertained (at no extra cost) with a calibre of humour that's usually only accessible through select comedy venues and the Fringe...

Recently celebrating their 10 year milestone anniversary, 2 Worlds Collide's mission is to provide 'MilSim for the Civilian, with no mess, pain, just fun'.

FENRIZ quickly brought the party guests into line and separated them into two teams. One team were allocated camo bucket hats to wear and the other team wore camo bandannas.

Next came the mission briefing, with FENRIZ continuing to counter the guests various outbursts, containing them with moderate ease whilst requesting they heed various warnings and instructions on the use of the laser armoury, accessories and environmental surrounds.

The two teams were deployed among the bush surroundings - with long grass to crouch in and eucalypts to hide behind and camouflage into. FENRIZ kept himself central to enable swift recharges whenever a player's ammunition was depleted.

Even with less than perfect weather and minimal shelter, everyone happily stayed outside and continued play. Guests need to byo food, drink, picnic rugs etc. Toilets are not immediately close by but can be found at various locations throughout Woodhouse Activity Centre. With this in mind, it's perfectly acceptable for guests to discretely 'water the trees instead'.

My son found the gun a bit heavy but he really enjoyed the game itself and working together as a team. FENRIZ (aka Chris) advised me had he known ahead of time, he would have brought his range of lighter laser guns which are available to players. The birthday boys and their guests really enjoyed themselves and wanted to go another round. Needless to say, we'll be back for more!
