Garden Warfare

Garden Warfare (known as "zdlaxdsniping" pre-Romsey) - Awesome fun. First played in November 2007, in the garden at Romsey Terrace, Garden Warfare involved the Legend, Dingly and Caradosh, armed with BB guns and wearing camouflaged clothes, hunting Desh in the dark.  Desh, as a civilian, wore brightly coloured clothing and was armed only with a supersoaker water pistol.  Desh had the advantage that it was easier to wet somebody than hit them with a BB gun, but the gun inflicted A LOT of pain when it did hit.


No footage exists of actual full-on, night-time garden warfare, but these 2 short videos give a general idea:



This college-wide email illustrates the (hilarious) consequences of including non-combatants in Garden Warfare:

Subject: Shooting in College

Dear College,

We have received several complaints about the use of a BB Gun in College. It is generally not a good idea to shoot anyone but using random, unsuspecting people for target practice is not only alarming for the person involved but also dangerous.


We know that exams are a stressful time and although shooting people might release some of your tension it doesn't really do that for the other person so please find another way of relieving your exam stress!

Dan and Clare
