Paintball combines the philosophies from Sun Tzu’s The Art of War with anecdotes from Jackson Pollock's autobiography, I Will Fight Your Painting. Hone combat aesthetics with today’s Groupon: for $47, you get a paintball outing for two at Action Star Games in Colton (a $95 value). The paintball outing includes:
- Full-day entry for two
- Two mask, gun, and air rentals
- 250 paintballs each
Action Star Games' outdoor battlefields facilitate colorful clashes between paint-slinging friends. On fields dotted with bunkers, trenches, and inflatable obstacles, paintballers dart in and out of the chromatic line of fire where inky warriors aged 10 and older practice the fine art of coloring between the lines at long range. Face masks protect sensitive eyes from inbound shots and sensitive ears from stinging taunts, although the 500 included paintballs provide ample means to write blistering Op-Eds on nearby trees. Full days of warfare begin at 9 a.m. and run until 3 p.m., and all games are monitored by Action Star Games' experienced referees, who keep the splattering safe and the combat fair.
