Stupid Things That Happen
at Q-Zar:A Marshal's Perspective
The Floor is NOT a holster for your phaser
You are NOT cool for knowing about Spy Mode, Bombs, Lethal HQ, etc...
If you are a regular, raising your hand when the marshal asks if anyone
has played before is NOT funny
If you are being shot repeatedly while in the energizer, MOVE somewhere
While scores are being printed, saying what number you are repeatedly does
not help...wait, just like everybody else
Using your hand to cover your panel is stupid
Complaining about someone who is using their hand to cover their panel is
Giving the marshal a hard time during the briefing will ensure that you
will be given a hard time during the game
When a marshal answers one of your questions, another marshal will not give
you a different answer
Playfully hitting your friend while the marshal goes over Rule #3 is very
original (never seen that before)
Trust the marshals when they tell you that your phaser is not broken. (We've
done this a couple of times)
Playing once a month does not qualify you as a regular
Hypocrite = Complaining about an opponent who is wearing a vest with no
panels and then doing it yourself the next game
Just because you can read our name tags does not make you our friends
What is so funny about your phaser talking to you?
Please do not ask dumb irrelevant questions such as "What if I get
Highlighters, hmm...they glow under the blacklight - but are they really
that good for your skin?
When a Marshall thinks they are really good and some random guy craps over
them. (Danny - Howard Beach)
<Side Note> All new marshals should get to know the regulars before
they start to brag. <End Side Note>
When a marshal asks you if anyone has any type of heart problems, or health
problems, etc.., saying your friend has a mental sickness is stupid. (Inkubus7Dust)
When the Laser says "Game Over, return to Energizer" and they act like they can't hear it
When they look at the back of there laser and there is only one number over the "U", and they ask you what their number is.
When they think the laser holder is a helmet
When you say the HQ resembles a spider-looking thing and then they ask if its a real spider
Raising your hand when the Marshall asks if anyone's pregnant...especially when you're a guy
Not funny when you say your pack vibrates and everyone laughs
When regulars come in and act like they own the place
When we're sitting out front at a table and they bang on the counter even though they see us
When kids pay with change
When people stand by conessions and you get over there and they don't want anything

A Female's Perspective
Being a girl does not automatically mean I suck.
Having your a$$ kicked by a girl does not mean that she cheated, it means that
she kicked your a$$.
Blocking is not against the rules so long as I keep both hands on my handset at
all times...which I do, thank you.
Pistol Whipping someone "because you can" is not cool...actually it's just not
"Yes, I wear a skirt while playing. Got a problem with that?"
Playing twice a week does not necessarily make you good.
Talking smack before the game does not instill fear or make it look like you're
good, it just makes you look like an arogant jerk...and it makes you a fun
target for people who are a little more modest about their skills. >:)
Getting top gun when you are the only person over 10 on your team does not mean
Calling the winning team "cheaters" merely makes it obvious to everyone in the
building how bad you lost.
Having the same number of people on each team does not necessarily make the
You really don't need to tell me when you've hit me, that's what the speaker on
my gun is for.
Finally, when you treat the marshalls with disrepect, be aware that some more
friendly regulars will probably get even for the Marshall. >:)
