  • (1888PressRelease) July 07, 2017 - Seattle - Blaster Boards to Elevate Nerf Battles : Fort Boards, makers of award-winning large-scale building toys, proudly introduces their latest revolutionary toy, Blaster Boards. Blaster Boards launches on crowd-funding site Kickstarter on July 10th and offers a truly unique take on Nerf wars. With the spinning targets that build right into a modular bunker building system, Blaster Boards deserves a place right alongside the latest Nerf blasters.

    Blaster Boards fills a need that was previously unmet - that of an easily transportable, fully customizable, and strategically necessary means of building defenses for foam dart battles, water gun wars, or even snowball fights. With Blaster Boards kids can build defensive structures that best fit their terrain. Whether they need a low sniper tunnel, robust barricade, mobile shield, or fully protected homebase, the parts easily snap together for building. This adds a new element of strategy to all of your games of Capture the Flag, Humans vs. Zombies, or Attack and Defend.

    Based on award-winning engineering and design concepts, Blaster Boards is built to withstand extremely active play but also can be fine-tuned for any situation. Blaster Boards can transform any living room, neighborhood park, or open playfield into a strategic battleground of fun. The first modular foam dart defense system, Blaster Boards touts many revolutionary features:

    Customizable Angles - Blaster Boards can be locked into place at angles of 30, 45, 90, 135, 150 and 180 degrees.

    Strength and Durability – Blaster Boards are made of high quality, shatterproof polypropylene that is also waterproof and easily cleaned. The design and quality of Blaster Boards is similar to that of Fort Boards, which offers a lifetime guarantee. These battle bunkers are built to withstand the rigors of war.

    Portability – Even though you can build structures sturdy enough to withstand the most modded out of Nerf blasters, the parts pack down neatly and can be easily carried to your next Nerf war. A standard sized backpack will easily fit the 22 board Bunker Pack.

    Open-ended creative possibilities - There are design plans for how to build different types of battle bunkers but beyond that you can build whatever type of structure fits your needs. Great for target practice at home too. You can make up your own shooting games to play by yourself or with friends.

    Fort Boards founder, August Graube said, "We are looking at crowdfunding on Kickstarter as a way to not only raise money to bring our product to market, but to also get the community involved in the innovation process early on - that’s the part I might be most excited about, just seeing what people end up building for their Nerf wars and watching some of the amazing battle footage on Youtube!”
