BaseTactics is one of the newest things to do in State College, PA. Influenced by popular video games like Halo and Call of Duty, BaseTactics uses high-tech equipment to create what feels like a live action battlefield.
On August 7th the local business celebrated a one year anniversary. All previous customers were sent invitations and welcomed to join the organization at the newly established State College "map." Offering a 75% discount on their services, each played from 11am-8pm for just $5. Attendees showed up with grills, coolers, lawn games, and more while awaiting a chance to play in the battlefield.
BaseTactics owners created varying game simulations throughout the day; tactical games ranging from simple "Team Death Match" to more complicated missions like "Search and Destroy" challenged players to come up with new strategies and player specialties in order to win.
More than 45 people made it out to the event. Weeks of planning culminated with a happy surprise when BaseTactics owners learned a news article covered by the Centre Daily Times was published the weekend of the event.
