Not everything is as it appears at Backyard Boyz Battlegroundz. The Valken Village marketplace, for instance, is really a front for a faux military stronghold, from which paintball players fend off opponents sneaking among the village's dirt roads and buildings. On the prohibition-themed Bootleg field, teams playing the role of federal agents must see through a backwoods building's ordinary veneer in order to locate batches of "White Lighting" hidden inside.
Of course, not all of the fields at Backyard Boyz Battlegroundz require such flights of imagination. On the regulation speedball field, players duck behind gray inflatable obstacles and into bunkers, firing rainbow-hued rounds during daytime or nighttime bouts. A digital scoreboard tracks each team's progress for spectators, who watch from bleachers or a shaded seating area closer to the field.
