Play tough games against your friends and become a smart paintball tactician with the first paintball simulation game.
Number of players : 2
Duration of games : About two hours
Age required : 12 and more.
A full-color folding board figuring a paintball field.
56 finely sculpted plastic miniatures
30 players designed in 3 different positions
21 "Sup'Airball" obstacles.
1 prebunkering template.
An illustrated rules book, with examples and playing tips.
Colorfull cardstock counters.
A transparent shooting ruler.
2 summary table cardboards.
A "breakout" sheet pad.
30 "jersey number" stickers for the models
The Adrenalin Products Paintcheck The Game is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Very attractive production.
Game mechanics are good.
The text is awfull.
The board has coordinate letters printed backwards
The only bad things with the pieces is that the standing players don't stand very well...they should have bases. And the bunkers only come in yellow...not yellow and blue like on the box.
The box says that the game can be played by people who don't know paintball...but the text is full of references to regular paintball that people would not know...and there is no glossary.
The table of contents is in the back. There is no alphabetical index.
The game would be great if the text had been proofread and edited better. There are numerous errors, both in spelling and typographical all over the place. "Enemy" is spelled "ennemy" at every occurence. Many contractions are split between lines. Many punctuation marks are spaced incorrectly. Some rules are ommited (specifically that distances off the end of the shooting ruler are -3). The move and shoot rules as explained in the book are very confusing. There is no procedure for checking initiative for simple moves.
For 50 dollars (and 24 S&H to get it to Iraq), there are a hugh amount of errors and shipments.
This game carries all the errors that you find in paintball magazines published from Europe. Mispellings, weird symbols instead of apostrophies or quotation marks. Speaking of quotations...there are a large number of phrases and explanations in quotes but no reference to who is being quoted is given.

I got this game last year 4 xmas I thought all the peices were well made and the feild is pretty cool.When me an my friend played it we were soooo confused.There were a million rules and some are only partially explaned.The rules are so confusing only me and 2 of my friends i learned with know how 2 play(hard 2 teach). We agreed though that its VERY real. Everything effects your shot.
Its good to develop stradegy and just have fun with.It has its flaws but its a new concept though.
