Our first birthday!! Urban Taggers

I just found this pic on the net. cool eh?
Happy Birthday to us! or.. to UT!:P A year ago from today, we decided we'd create a humble lil' blog on our love of out-of-the-box toy blasters. We weren't modders, we weren't into wars; we were just "grown ups" who were sick the day they taught "stop playing with toys" at grown up school:) We never would have expected our blog would have extended into a community, and we'd be so well read not just locally, but around the world. I'm humbled by it all and really do say a warmfelt THANKS to all of you who've taken the time to visit and read our ramblings! We've made many friends along the way-props to my man Neil from the Canberra + Southern NSW Dart Tag crew- we've become good friends through all of this  and while we have a different ethos on blasters we're proud to have put Canberra, Australia on the map for something other than politicians and porn:)

Urban Taggers: Apartment Warfare is the product of almost every friend I had coming over to my lil' inner city apartment, and would say "what is THAT?" to the Vulcan EBF I had on display in my living area. They may have been teachers, lawyers, IT professionals, whatever; the moment they saw that blaster their eyes lit up and they were back in roleplay imagination mode:) 

Anyway, there's not much else to this post other than thanks again for reading and look forward to the next 12 months ahead! After the jump we've just compiled from the net a quick pic spam of.. Nerf birthday cakes. Just because:P












Errr...one of those home "designs" from fans made it to cake form.. :P

  6. Jason from Basic Nerf here,

    Congrats Pocket! We really appreciate the time, effort, and money you put into this.

  7. i think the fact that you guys at UT are not modders and don't really attend wars actually appeals to a wider reader base... coz the majority of people who buy nerf never actually attend wars or mod their stuff either! :-)
