Rules & Waivers
PLAYER RESPONSIBILITY FOR INJURY – Upon participating in a Roundhouse Productions event, all players agree to abide to these rules. Roundhouse Productions cannot be held responsible for injuries stemming from play conducted within these guidelines. Players not obeying the aforementioned rules have full and sole liability for injuries or damages to themselves or other players.
1. All players must be 14 years of age or older. 14-17 for youth events permitted. We reserve the right to check IDs to confirm a person’s age.
3. Field fee is $35 dollars for all registered players. Registration closes 24 hours prior to the start of any event. Non-registered player fees are $40.
4. Events start promptly at 0900 hours. Late registration (after 0900) is $40, even if a player has pre-registered to an event.
RULES OF ENGAGEMENT
Rules of Engagement and specific Scenario Rules are non-negotiable.
If specific game requirements are set in the briefing (e.g. destruction of key objectives with another, specific attainable objective), the objective will not be awarded to a team if players try to circumvent scenario rules.
1. The minimum engagement distance while outside is 25 feet with any weapon.
2. If engaging a house with hostiles from the outside, you may use your AEG if you are more than 25 feet away. If you are less than 25 feet away from a marked home, you must switch to your pistol.
3. A thrown, explosive / noise-making grenade (e.g. Thunder B) or a projectile shot from a launcher eliminates all players, friendly or OPFOR, in a 25 foot radius from the point of impact.
4. BB shower grenades DO NOT have an area of effect. A BB must hit a player to eliminate them.
5. Buildings marked with blue paint are accessible. DO NOT enter any other buildings.*
1.. The minimum engagement distance while inside homes is 10 feet with PISTOLS ONLY.
2. You must clear a house using pistols only. After the house is clear, you can use AEG’s to fire at attackers from the windows as long as your target is more than 25 feet away.
3. If hostiles enter a home you are occupying, you MUST engage them with PISTOLS ONLY.
4. No engagement in stairwells from either the top or the bottom. All players traversing stairwells are considered safe until they exit the stairwell.
4. A thrown, explosive / noise-making grenade (e.g. Thunder B) OR a BB shower grenade fired into a building will eliminate all players in the room the grenade or BB shower lands.
1. Calling Out – Call “Hit!” raise your gun, and use a red dead rag. If firefight is too intense to leave, stay down until it is clear to move. All hits on gear worn on the body constitute a hit. Gun hits do not count.*
2. If you are dead, do not loiter to watch the fight. Return immediately to your re-spawn point.
3. Dead men can’t talk! Do not talk to teammates if you are dead and give them intelligence on the opponent.
4. Do not leave the boundaries of the field during play. If you exit the field at the boundary areas, you must return to your re-spawn point.
5. You must re-spawn at your designated re-spawn points.
6. No blind firing. Blind firing is firing at targets without presenting yourself as a target as you shoot. If you cannot see your target as you shoot, you are blind firing.*
1. If you are within the minimum engagement distance, you will call surrender on the target. Surrender is called when a shooting situation is no longer safe, such as a finding a target from behind or from the side within minimum engagement range.
2. Face-to-face surrenders eliminate opponents with a 1:1 ratio. A face-to-face surrender will always result in both players being eliminated.
3. Called surrenders catching opponents unaware from the rear or side eliminate opponents with a 7:1 ratio.
4. Surrender calls are not negotiable and the person that has been surrendered cannot debate it. If surrender is called at the same time, both parties are out.*
