That's a lot of stuff.

And a copy of Killer! We played that as a club way back when, it would probably get you thrown out of school today! (If not worse…)

Nice! I'll give you $101 USD for it ;)

Thanks everyone.

Bill, yeah, Killer was a disturber of the peace. My friends and I ran around the park throwing gren-eggs at each other (hollowed out eggs with confetti) playing it.

Salt, I paid 100 Cdn, not $US.. even better. I decline your gracious offer though. :-)

Why would Killer get you thrown out of school? I ask because I'm not 40K guy.

Killer isn't 40K related. It was an early LARP-type game where everyone played assassins trying to kill each other. The most common version we played was called the "Circle of Death," where when you killed someone their target became yours. Eventually it came down to two people stalking each other.

Even in my small town of 7,000 people, dart gun fights in the street were frowned upon. My most spectacular kill was with a toy chainsaw! We played it in the early 1980s, and I can't picture doing it today in public. Even then, the book had warnings about bystander's reactions.

We played it in high school back in 85. I bet that bringing disc guns and dart guns to school nowadays would be frowned upon

Times have changed sadly. :-)

Played Killer in the dorms at college back in 1996 (you had to use Nerf weapons). Could probably still get away with that today.

We used neon green tennis balls for Killer in the late 1970s, because we could all hear our moms saying, "you'll put someone's eye out with that dart gun/nerf gun/disk gun/potato gun!"

I don't know why we didn't use squirt guns. It never occurred to us then.

Funny thing, they used a hit list game as a youth icebreaker at my family reunion two years ago.
