• Happy 40th birthday, Nerf!

    In honor of Nerf’s 40th anniversary and the launch of the N-Strike Raider Rapid Fire CS 35 blaster, which ships today, Nerf sent over a mighty fine and ginormous care package to the CG office.

The best were capture the flag fights and shootouts in public places. So what has NERF been up to lately? Check out the N-Strike Longshot CS-6 rifle. The latest and greatest piece to terrorize your neighborhood with. From… Read More
