Paintball is most commonly played by teams identified by colored armbands. Teams can range from 3 to 4 players to as many as 2000 a side! Each team strives to achieve a “goal” or “objective”, similar to many other “ball” oriented sports.
Players will attempt to eliminate opposing players from play by “tagging” them with paintballs. If a player is “hit” and the paintball
breaks anywhere on the player’s body or equipment, resulting in a paint “splat”, the player is considered “out” and must immediately leave the playing field to the designated safe or neutral area.
Games usually last approximately 15 minutes, with resurrection for the first 10 minutes. Then followed by Classic attack & defend and Capture the flag scenarios. Objectives can range from capturing or defending a flag to eliminating the opposing team entirely. Whichever the case, the game will challenge players both physically and mentally as exertion and cleverness are integral to winning.
