The Latest Generation of Laser Tag

Laser tag is a game of skill and precision. In laser tag, the goal is to hit another person's targets (strategically placed on their body) with your laser (infrared light).

Most often, guns are used to shoot at someone's vest. When shot in certain places, the shooter will gain points. Occasionally (in large games), there are teams. Each team will have a 'base'.

When players of opposite teams hit the base with their laser, that team is shut down for a period of time. When the vest is hit, it disables the gun from shooting for a period of time, allowing one to still be shot.

History

The US army was the first to use a series of laser combat training guns. These guns work the same as normal laser tag guns. It was referred to as the 'MILES' system and allowed intense training abilities in the army.

Some combat training is still used today. A man by the name of Carter invented the first arena-type laser game. He surprisingly thought of the idea after watching the film 'Star Wars.

In 1986, Laser tag was revealed as an at-home game. Laser tag toys were being purchased more than any other game or toy at the time. The toys are continued to be made, and beloved by children around the world. Arena games are popular among adults, as well as children, and are played for recreation.
