This is more simple, but make a "floating desert fortress" with PSI geared tennisball cannons, and take a sharpy to the tennisballs and put the burning man logo on it. everytime another art car comes by u shoot tennis balls "at"(dont actually put alotta effort at making a hit, just lob em) it. guys on the fortress wear jedi-like robes and allow in those who fire dance at night, and other random things, but OMG it would be EPIC

Lol all i wanna see is flying tennis ball cannons at other art cars, at a low pressure firing speed.

i had to choose the "awesomesauce" option, due to mixed opinions.

if you make a show of it, definitely.

ie: 2 "pirateships" that roam the playa, engaging in battle (with tedybear-cannons) whenever they meet (2-4 times a day).

Pirate ships with teddy bear cannons!!!! ZOMG i love it!!! and then put hearts and stuff on them lol!!!

since its only me and my friend going so far, i will have no crew, but it would be epic to 2-5 times a day roll them from either end of the playa to attk!!!!

so strings yes. XD

Paintballs are completely biodegradable - too bad BM has such a prohibition on them, would be perfect for what you want to do.

It's too dry out there. Things don't biodegrade, they mummify.

Funny enough I have a tennisball cannon for my ship MV already...

Fighting Drag, I admire your spirit. Done right, this would be great fun. But I want to make sure you understand that (in my opinion) there is NO WAY you are going to lob anything at anyone who is not cheerfully anticipating it. That settled, I like the idea of two or more Declared Combatants battling with teddy bears.

I wouldn't use anything harder or pointier than teddy bears. And if you tie a glow stick to a teddy, you risk hitting somebody in an eye with the end of the glow stick.

Each pirate ship (or whatever) should know how many teddys they have, and keep a count, so none are left as moop.

Battle stations!
:D

Personally I think the idea of 2 "pirate ships" doing battle on the playa is pretty wicked. Can flash bangs be used to simulate cannon fire without creating moop? I know my 6 yr old would think he had died and gone to heaven watching this. :D

FightingDrag, fire something at me or my ship and I will either return fire with real bullets or at bare minimum chase you down and beat the shit out of you.
Firing shit at random strangers is guaranteed to seriously piss people off.
Go out there to have fun, don't be an annoying asshole.
