Equipment: Electronic Shot Survivor’s package came with both one or two laser tag phasers and one or two headsets. Players wore headsets that were used for other players to tag.
History: Electronic Shot Survivor began in 1987 when Tomy Co., Ltd. began manufacturing and selling it in Japan. Hasbro began to market ESS in the US in 1990, but their marketing was short lived due to the fact that they started in the US as the Lazer Tag craze was dying down and their potential customers were still swept up by the Lazer Tag movement.
