Nerf Challenge Closing Out

Extra because it’s not often I get to see the magical. The second to last day, when we had most of the installations working, I was just finishing fixes to the bank shot game as patrons were coming in. I watched a boy run from the wristband table to the T-ball-Skee-Ball game and go wide-eyed. It was a unicorns-really-exist level of special to see.

I’m a long time fan of how Nerf toys encourage physical activity, and a bunch of Neo-Pixels, servos and NUCs can make it a whole other level of experience. I was sad to see the event got poor reviews, though most of the complaints were due to wait times and not the games themselves.
