How to Assemble and Play a Nerf Battle


To play a Nerf battle, lay out all weapons on the floor and let each player pick a weapon. Divide into a team of two, and assign different battlegrounds to each team. A toy room or garden is a great place to play, especially if there are plenty of items to hide behind. Allow both teams to come up with strategies and to load their guns before starting the battle.

Always stay safe when playing and remember to have fun at all times!
