Airsoft "Bomb" type games.

Let me first say I'm not talking real bombs, no explosives, no combustion of any kind. When I say bomb I'm refering to an airsoft version, which is just something that makes noise, in my case electronically.

The friends I airsoft with had wanted to do a bomb type objection. One team has a "bomb" and has to take it to a designated spot, arm it, and protect it until it goes off. So I went and I made one with some electronics. As I mentioned above there is ABSOLUETLY NO EXPLOSIVES INVOLVED it's just an electronic noise maker. To be specific an alarm panel and a siren.

I was more curious if anyone else plays these kinds of scenarios, as I am quite proud of the aparatis I built. I don't have any pictures yet, but since I work as an alarm technician I have an abundance of old alarm panels laying around that I had figured I would need. I took the board and seated it in a brief case. I hooked a siren and a keypad to it, programmed the system to chirp the siren on and off for 4 minutes (arming period) and then if it was not disarmed the siren would go on continuously for a minute (indicating the "bomb" went off).

I went a little further and covered the circuit board and ran some wires over it that can be cut. (Much like in a movie, you see the hero cutting wires to disable a bomb instead of guessing number on a keypad) I ran eight wires in a loop, 4 wires do nothing when cut, 2 wires will make the bomb go off, and the last two will disable the bomb, or disarm it.

If this is in the wrong section, feel free to move it, and if it doesn't make sense...well it's 2 am, and for some reason I figured I should post this now instead of when I'm in a clearer state of mind.

Props such as that are used by some hosts in games. One of the games I attended had a bomb on a timer (which was essentially a countdown and then an 'alarm' sound). The host had the same alarm also set up on a flat disc with a pressure pad to be used as landmines.

"Terrorists win"

But yeah, I think everyone has played some variation of that. Kitchen timers make expedient "bombs."

Yea actually a teammates Nephew made on that would make an "Explosion" sound but it was keypad locked. Which is for the best IMO cause for the wired version you would have to rewire per scenario. and Scenarioskirms are popular quick games that are an alternative to boring ol' TDM

I've got wired and keypad, the wired was a friends idea. I am of the same opinion, I'd have to re-wire after every game, a bit of a pain.

We'll probably try it once, see it's a pain and go back to my keypad version, haha.

Been tempted to make one that will actually make an explosion sound, but so far I've been able to build mine for free, so I can't complain with a simple siren sound.

I also had an idea about this, a slightly more accessible version.
Use battery powered stereos. The good 'ol ghetto blaster.
Put in a tape with a song everyone should know, and the "terrorists" press play when they get the stereo/bomb to their objective. They have to protect it till the game ends, and the "counter-terrorists" have to get inside and press stop.
Your idea is much cooler though. What would you charge for something like that?
