Hide and Seek

I was wondering, who'd be interested in meeting up and playing hide and seek. Now before all the "mature folks" start jumping at my throat I'd like to say that it is scientifically proven (source unknown ), that everybody likes a good game of "hide and seek" and it would be an excellent way to get rid of love handles that some of you acquired over the winter months.

(PS: people with vibrams are most welcome to join in as well.)

Re: Hide and Seek

can we buy some laser tag guns and do that instead? I haven't done any exercise in over a decade, but I'd be interested in that on a regular basis.

No, but you can pretend to be an immigration officer, IRS bureau or a nasty neighbor. How's that for a start?

Pah! Where's the fun in laser tag guns? They dont inflict maximum pain.
Count me in if these are allowed!

Re: Hide and Seek

I found Zurich HB in rush hours as a quite conducive playground for most fervent hide and seek game enthusiasts.

Given Zuirsche natural crowdy environ, some casual civilians and bystanders might become the victims of the Effers shooting spree I'll be watching my unfrozen assets very carefully

Much more effective way to vent than the Complaints Corner I say.

LIB: IN! (even if we are playing with those girly laser tags )

Alternatively, we could team up and play capture the flag or something.

Looks like we have two different interest groups here. One wants to play with cartoon network toys and the other ones are cool.

I'd be in for paintball and a short google showed this place:
http://www.paintballfarm.ch/

Three stories farm house with everything from barrels to plane wreck, lights and smoke machine...

If we get 25 people together, we could rent the entire thing, otherwise we would have to shoot at Swiss people.

Great thought, but I'd much prefer the cartoon network solution...as it enables people to walk away without having to google translate "Tiger Balm, bandaid and painkillers".

I would rather shoot Swiss people. In the face. After LiB removes their goggles and pins them by the shoulders....ahhhh

My only thing is - there is Switzerland. People keep telling me about this "nature" malarkey...and it's free. We should get/rent our own equipment and just roll into a forest...shouldn't we?
