As I continued touring the northern Connecticut tag scene I stumbled upon a wonderful surprise when I visited Nomad’s Adventure Quest in South Windsor. I arrived just in time to join a group of six players heading into Nomad’s Lost City Laser Battle. I followed them in looking fierce in my Mandarr Mask, lol.
The artwork in the arena is really eye catching and feels like they have taken some time to create a 3D environment, not just falling back on the same wall design throughout.
Everyone kept a very safe distance apart, but for the most part the game was played on and around that platform. I kept the one guy in my sight for most of it getting a fair amount of tags in. I honestly don’t know how he did otherwise because I didn’t see the scoreboard. I hung back to take some photos in the arena and when the game master returned he said “spoiler alert, you won” and I smiled once again under my mask.
After the game I inquired about purchasing a t-shirt as a souvenir. When the manager, Infinity, returned with the shirt I made a point of letting her know what a nice surprise it was to play with the Helios 2 equipment because from their website I had expected them to have an older generation of packs. The combination of a great game experience and the packs I have come to take a particular liking to would definitely be enough to bring me back to Nomad’s. Maybe next time I’ll wear my shirt!
I contemplated spending more time here and getting in a few more games, but I had a full night ahead of me, so like a Nomad I had to move on…but I’ll definitely be back!
