Like rugby with mirrors.
The light sensitive goal is say 50
yards away and 12 yards high, but is
not with in the line of site of the
gunners. A hanging mirrored strip is
placed in the line of sight of the
gunners placed at either end to
prevent them from having a clear
shot of the
10 players from each team with
mirrored shields have to stand in
such a way as to reflect the laser
light to the opposite goal even if that
light is coming from the opposing
The laser when fired lasts for one
second giving players time to line up
to the goal. The gunner laser is a
fixed swiveling and panning device

of the gunner. It also comes equiped
with a green and a blue laser. Green
laser worth 5 points, blue laser worth
10 points, red laser worth 1 point.
Gunner is only able to get 6 shots
with the green laser and 3 shots with
the glue laser.

||I thought it said Laser Goat. Eats your trash and corrects your vision.
||The lasers would have to be totally weak so as not to blind people, though they could play it with no spectators and all the player wearing eye protection.
||Instead of different colored lasers, how about a goal scores one point, plus one point for each time the laser was reflected on the way to the goal? This encourages trick shots. And if you reflect the other team's laser into their own goal, the score is double.
If you get the chance, read the short story _Bullard Reflects_, by Malcolm Jameson. A game similar to this is described.
||Thank you for the Dazzle Darts link! This game can now be played in real life, if eyes are protected.
