Paintball

Paintball is a game of skill, strategy and daring normally played outdoors in a woodland setting. Players are dressed in camouflage gear, and use paintball-marking guns. Two equal teams compete against each other, the objective is to capture your opposition’s flag and get it back to your home base. During the game, players are eliminated when a paintball hits them and bursts, marking them with a vivid coloured non-toxic dye that easily washes off.
