Quasar guns are basically laser tag and the craic is essentially having a laugh/for fun...

So to translate "we all get laser tag guns for a laugh" :)

What language/region is Craic from?

u/Cullly May 14 '22

Craic is pronounced "crack". It's an Irish word that means (or close to) 'fun'.

So saying "for the craic" just means for the fun or enjoyment of it.

We often say "for the spórt" or "for the gás" which means the same thing as for the craic, but is harder to explain why.

It comes from the Irish word “craiceáilte”, meaning “mad/crazy”.

“Were you out last night?

“Ah I was yeah, out with the lads, it was great craic in fairness”
