When you play your first game of Quasar, you will be briefed on the game, and how to play. This involves a general introduction to the game, and basic information on the objective of the game and what to do. Most people only need to be briefed on the game once, as it is very easy to get the hang of.
As players get to know the game more, they get to learn a few things that make it a lot more fun. One of the most interesting and appealing things about Quasar, are the little intricacies involved in the game, from the format settings, to the bugs and features. There are a number of aspects that separate Quasar from other laser tag systems and shooting games, such as reflex shots and cancels, bongs and doubles. You can read about these and more in the tips and terms section.
