Rule #1: Laser Tag is a Non-Contact sport
You’re not playing Rugby-tag! Laser Tag is designed to be a non-contact sport. Any contact with an opponent is grounds for removal from the game. Players who touch their opponents will be considered “out” and will leave the game.
Rule #2: Sensors must be visible during game-play
Covering a sensor to prevent your tagger from receiving tags is poor sportsmanship and any player who covers their sensor will be considered “out” and will leave the game. A person who covers their sensor is the sort of person you should also never lend your car to!
Rule #3: Equipment Failure
If a tagger fails mid-game that player is considered out. An exception can be made if the malfunction is caused by low batteries. In this case the player can be considered in a “time out” and their batteries replaced. They can then re-join the game if possible.
Rule #4: Sportsmanship is important
If you cheat to win you haven’t really won! Sportsmanship is essential to a good laser tag experience. Any lying or cheating should not be tolerated and should result in disqualification of the player who does so. Hiding your sensor (see rule #2), resetting your tagger when you’re out, or any other dubious acts are against the rules! Nobody likes a cheater!
Rule #5: Keep Laser Tag FUN
Remember: Laser Tag isn’t currently an olympic sport, there are no contracts or scholarships on the line. The number one reason to play laser tag is to have fun. Being frustrated or angry is literally against the rules of laser tag, if you feel that way during a laser tag match take a few minutes, grab a refreshment and get your chill on!
Rule #6: Know your gear:
The day of your party or event is no time to be getting acquainted with your laser tag gear. That’s like getting married as a blind date!
