Other Fields
in the Area:
Since I'm from Minnesota, the closest one I've been to is Skirmish in Jim Thorpe, PA.
to the Field:
It's extremely easy to get to. Hwy 95 into Fredricksburg and take the Hwy 3 exit. From there, drive to Locust Grove and take a left at Hwy 20. They will be on the right-hand side after you drive into the Wilderness Battlefield area. You can't miss it.
Review: I held a contest back in 2006 on my Website for my two paintball books. The winner was from Locust Grove, so I traveled out to play alongside him and his friends. It was up to him to select a scenario paintball field in the area, and he chose War Play Paintball. Well, after driving over 22 hours from the Twin Cities in Minnesota, I'm glad he DID choose War Play. This is not only an excellent field run by terrific people, but it's designed with attention to detail by two former Marines. Tor and Gunny both know how to design a great field.

Excellent field. Right now they have two fields for use: the Khe Sanh field and the Market-Garden field. With what they have to work with, these two guys have built incredible simulations to the conditions that come right out of history. The cinder block ruins, the tank bridge, the guardhouse, the Vietnam firebase... all done with attention to detail.

Reffing Staff. They have GREAT referees on hand to make sure everyone is playing safe, playing fair, and having fun.

Location: You're playing paintball amidst Civil War history. This field is nestled in the heart of the Wilderness Battlefield. Eventually Tor and Gunny will widen their fields to include actual land used during the American Civil War and players will run on trails used by Civil War soldiers. Not many other places can offer that. The field is right off the highway - not down some bumpy gravel road that might damage your vehicle. You turn off Highway 20 and right into their parking lot. I wish a lot of other fields would be that way. I only know of two other fields nationwide that are like that. I'm glad War Play is one of them.

Added features: Tor's father is set up in the safe zone to launch paint mortar rounds into the game. If fending off over 40 opposing players isn't enough, you have to watch out for "death from above" when he starts firing off mortar rounds. A great addition to your games!

If I were to give the place any sort of "con" review, it would be the no-20-foot-rule. However, stated by some others here at pbreview, they clearly state that if you don't want to be shot at close range, then don't be that guy that is in that situation. Play to your ability and use common sense. They do this to help simulate how real combat can take place. This is a scenario field to the fullest. Use your head and know your limits, and you'll have a blast here.

To sum up, traveling to War Play has become my all-time favorite road trip for paintball. Me and my teammates are already planning a return trip with more of our team. If they will create tank paths, we'll bring our tank too! This field is a scenario player's ultimate fantasy for the east coast. I'm already jealous of those that live closer to it than I am. Gear up and get yourselves to War Play on the double!!!
