|Hasbro's Electronic Survivor Shot (circa 1990)
Yes, this web site is dedicated to a defunct game. So what... we love it!
Now, on with the introduction...
A few years ago, Hasbro produced a short-lived infrared tag game called Electronic Survivor Shot. I bought as many units as I could find. Unfortunately, Hasbro discontinued the line in 1990 and no longer has any Electronic Survivor Shot units. No one else knows where any are. If you have any information leading to the whereabouts of a cache of ESS guns of any size, please e-mail us.
After playing the game for a few years, we have learned a few things that we would like to share with other players of ESS, including, but not limited to:
All that stuff they say about the game on the box and all the stuff we have found to the contrary.
The standard ESS guns are okay. Ours are better. From the simple paint job to the top secret mini-maglight modification, there are instructions for all sorts of helpful alterations.
So you don't have to make all the mistakes and falls and stumbles we have made, we give a handy guide to some rules we use while playing.
Okay, sometimes rules do not eliminate all the problems of playing on public property or in parking garages or around cacti. We have collected some stories, not only from our local players, but from players around the country.
After all the hype, you are probably wondering what type of person it takes to play this game. Meet the players of NightForce, their Feilds of Play, and find out how your team could be a part of this site, too.
