Retroist Lazer Tag Podcast

Retroist Lazer Tag Podcast

This week’s Retroist Podcast is about the classic toy from World’s of Wonder, Lazer Tag. I start the show with a story about how my friends and I spent a good part of an amazing summer playing Lazer Tag together. It is a cherished memory that would not have happened without Lazer Tag.

Then I move onto the toy itself. I discuss the origins of Lazer Tag, the company that made it, the animated series and much more.

This is my final episode of this season. Sadly I did not get to all of the subjects I wanted to cover. I did record them, but I was unhappy with the quality. This episode took three recordings to finally get into a state I am happy with publishing. I hope you enjoy it and will send me suggestions for new shows. This is not a statment on the quality of the show, but more a commentary on my lack of skills as a podcaster.

I am hoping to one day to throw diva-like tantrums and need to boost my ego by a lot more before I can do that. So If you have the time and inclination, please stop by iTunes or wherever you consume podcasts and leave the show a positive review.

    Glad to see you’re back to recording episodes. I’ve enjoyed them for years. I had a couple WOW Lazer Tag sets that I sold at a garage sale about 10 years ago. I had 2 vests and I think at least 1 helmet. One downside when playing against friends without as many accessories was with more sensors (helmet, etc,), there were more opportunities to score a hit.

      Thanks Mike. Yeah, the more sensors thing was problematic. I could have talked a lot longer about the issues with the chest sensor. Playing outside, we had people who would crouch or lay on their stomach, it was very difficult to hit those chest sensors. So we established rules about being upright at all times. That was one of the nice things about the Photon Guns, the sensor was in the gun itself.
