Lazer Tag: Awesome if you had someone to play with

Or a game that tore apart as many friendships as this:

Lazer Tag was a really awesome toy that was popular in the 80s and 90s. You got to wear these cool vests, run around with cool space-age guns and shoot invisible lasers at your friends. Sounds great right? Not exactly. Here was the fundamental problems with Lazer Tag. The kit itself only came with one gun and one vest. So if your parents only bought you one kit (like my parents did), you had no one to play with. Also, the kit was expensive so not many kids would have the toy to begin with. And finally, there were rumors that some kid went blind after getting a laser shot in the eye (not true), so then parents really didn’t want to spend the money on the toy. I had one gun and one vest and never got to play a real game. Thanks mom and dad.
