The Death Star

Davis Nerf Club (formerly known as the Davis Urban Gaming Group) is a UC Davis club that holds free-to-play NERF wars every weekend.


We meet every Saturday night starting at 7PM at the Death Star (the Social Science and Humanities building) and we usually stay there until 10PM (after which we often go out for food). We play all sorts of different games: from Team Deathmatches and special objective games to small-scale Humans vs Zombies games and deception-based social games. You must be a UC Davis student or over 18 to participate.  If you're not a student, you will have to sign a safety waiver.a-frame on the quad

While everything we play on Saturday nights involves NERF blasters, we don't make anyone bring their own. The club provides blasters and ammo for all members, a service provided through donations to the club and extra blasters owned by various club members.  We always have plenty of blasters and darts so feel free to bring as many friends as you like!  If you have your own blasters, however, you are more than welcome to bring them.  Any modded blasters will have to be inspected by our moderator team before they can be used, but we encourage people to bring their creations and try them out.

In addition to the normal Saturday Night Nerf games, DNC sometimes puts on other events, such as capture the flag, paintball excursions, and laser tag.  Events are usually announced on the DNC Facebook page, which is the best way to stay updated.  DNC also always has a strong showing at the quarterly week-long Humans vs. Zombies games (a link to that can be found below).

Our games are run by a team of moderators who are there to make sure our games run smoothly and our players are having fun.  Their names are listed above, and they can be easily reached on Facebook with any questions you might have.  

Main Rules

#1 Don't Be A Dick. We're here to have fun, not get heated. Bring your best sportsmanship so everyone can have a good time.
Also #1) Safety First. We take safety very seriously at DNC.  If a player is acting in an unsafe manner despite a previous warning, they will be ejected.  We don't allow any blasters that would be unsafe to be struck by or any that have been painted to resemble realistic guns.
#2) Trust Other Players. We use the honor system at DNC when announcing hits.  If you have a dispute with another player about whether or not you hit them with a dart, try and work it out yourselves.  If that doesn't work, a moderator can step in and help you out.
#3) We only play within the Death Star.  For a week of campus-wide NERFing, check out Humans vs. Zombies.
#4) Stairs. Stairs count as out of play, but you are only allowed to stay on them for 15 seconds.
#5) Headshots don't count
#6) Hitting blasters doesn't count. This means you can deflect darts with a blaster.  Similarly, ricochets don't count.

Every game has its own specific rules.  The moderators will explain the rules of each game before it starts, so be sure to listen up.  If you have any questions about rules at any time, the moderators are always happy to help out.


A few examples of the games we play are:

Team Deathmatch - A firefight between two teams.

Humans versus Zombies - A game of infection tag where those who are not 'it' have NERF blasters. When a human is tagged, they become a zombie.

Alamo - Defend the point for a specific amount of time against an increasing number of attackers.  When a defender is shot, they become an attacker. 

Infection - a mafia-style game of deception and NERF

Battle Royale - A free for all arena match where your blaster (or lack thereof) is randomly assigned to you at the start by a moderator.  Alliances are made and broken and there's a lot of backstabbing.  Fun!

Gladiators - Teams of 3 take turns fighting it out in a pit.  The winning team stays and fights new teams until it drops.

We have all sorts of game types besides these that keep everything fresh.  If you have any ideas for a game type, let a moderator know.  We love to get feedback and hear suggestions from the community.
