  Paintball FAQ   

Q: What is paintball?
A: Paintball is the ancient and sacred childhood game of capture the flag, except now we've grown up a bit more so we shoot our friends with an air powered marker that fires gelatin capsules filled with a water-soluble paint. Obviously this gives you more range and makes the strategy completely different. There are a number of different types of paintball games, but most follow this format. You have a flag or flags and two teams at opposite ends of the field. The field is full of things to hide behind (either bunkers or trees) and you try to utilize your cover while attempting to mark your opponent and take the flag to the appropriate place. Hanging the flag wins it, but eliminating your opponents makes that possible.
