At-home Laser Tag Set

Turn off the lights, move all antiques to a safe spot and your home can now be a laser-tag arena. The set comes with blinking vests and laser guns so you can get up and moving after spending the day in front of a screen. It’s also a bargain compared to going to a real laser tag place. Some say it’s for kids but I beg to differ, I imagine it would make for a great office party..
