Review: Yesterday, I played a few games at Boston Paintball. I loved every round. Since we came when it was crowded and stayed till there was no one there (7:40 although they usually close at 5:40 for practice), I think I have a pretty good idea what BP is like.

First off, the prices are kinda expensive for the normal person. However, it's paintball. Paintball is expensive. What do you expect?

Safety is a major issue for insurance reasons. Even before you can play, a ref sits you down and explains everything. Unless you tell him beforehand that you have played before, he will go over every aspect of gun and field safety. Also, you are given a tag to wear that also explains the rules and safety points. After he gives you the safety course, he will punch a hole in your tag, verifying that you took the safety course.

After that, if you have a rental, you have to walk all the way to the back of the arena. However, it is kinda of cool because you can observe people playing. The rentals aren't bad and they aren't necessary great. They shoot paintballs. Sometimes, they aren't consistent. Sometimes, they are on the money.

Anyway, if you are reg and you have your own equip, you have to chrono your gun down to 250 I believe. Once you have done that, you have to get your tag punched again (for safety reasons).

Alright, now that you have done ALL of that. You can play. Depending on how many people are there, the games usually go as follows: beginner/rental, group, OPEN. Beginner games are for people with rentals or low-end guns. Usually, those games have many inexperienced players. I found myself owning it up with a borrowed rental. Group is for....groups. In this case, groups are birthday parties or a group of people who scheduled playing time a day or so earlier. Okay, after that, there is OPEN (beginner - advanced), which is by far the most fun. Many people around are loaded so you will see all types of high-end markers being used. Yesterday, I had my minion up against about 5 EGO 07s. It was insane but I held my own.

Now, if there aren't that many people at BP, it will be OPEN 24/7. Unfortunately, don't expect you and your friend to play on the same team. My buddy who had an EGO and I had to be split up a few times in order to make teams even.

Services are excellent. However, there is no food besides vending machines. The guy at the window/proshop will break anything (he broke two $20 for me yesterday).

The staff is overall very nice. I only met one disgruntled ref and that was because he had been shot in the head and balls by a player the previous games. Besides that, all the refs and staff were very nice. The ref are especially nice to you if you are good. After a few rounds yesterday, I was being allowed into almost every game (including beginner and groups). Refs used my friend and me to even the teams a few times.

As far as the field goes, there is only one speedball field. The field is very slippery. However, I loved it. Since I am a run and gun player, sliding was astonishingly effective. On the other hand, if you are one of those people who likes to stay back and snip targets, you would love this field as well. That is what my friend and I would do when we played beginner.

Next, we have the players. On Sunday, there were all types of players. The army buffs, the expert who had modded their guns, the townies, the birthday party types, the 5-year vets, etc. Everyone seems to get together but not everyone is honest. The refs try to catch people wiping paint off on another but there is only one ref so he can't see everything. There were two instances involving the same two paintball vets in which they rubbed off paint on each other. I know who you are so I won't call you out.

Besides that, I would say definitely go play on the weekends. Or, if you have a party/group, play during the week to guarantee yourself as much playing time as you like. I am rating this field a 9 because it doesn't have more than one speedball field but the place operates very well with what it has.
