Teams of five players each competed in Bongo Ball Mania from 3-9 p.m. last Friday at the Bell Tower Plaza. The Loper Programming and Activities Council sponsored the game in which teams try to advance in a battlefield of flying Nerf balls and random obstacles while also playing a faster, more intense game of capture the flag.


  • Each player must use their own gun.
  • No firing before the music starts.
  • If you get hit ANYWHERE, you're out!
  • Only use one "bullet" at a time.
  • You can only hold onto as many Nerfs as you can hold in your hand.
  • You can roam anywhere on the course.

Q. How did your form your team?
A. “No one was scheduled for the 3:30 p.m. time slot, so I ran around Men’s Hall and gathered like 12 guys to compete.”

Q. Did your team work well together?
A. “We didn't really. It is kind of an every man for himself type of thing.  We did concentrate on going around the outsides, so they couldn’t get behind us and hit us.”
