What is paintball?
Paintball is basically like dodgeball. Only, in this game each player has a gun that fires gelatin capsules filled with a water-soluble marking dye (washable). If you’re shot and marked, depending on the game you are either out or if playing resurrection walk to home base to reset and join the game again. The most common variation is two teams at opposite ends of a field. The object is depending the game select, from capture the flag, zombie, resurrection, elimination etc.. When you encounter people on the other team, you try to tag them out before they get you. Pretty simple and lots of fun.
