Paintball is a lot like chess in that both require complex strategizing and both are almost impossible to win against autonomous robots. Use the battle vectors of your brain with today’s Groupon: for $17, you get a paintball package (a $35 total value) at Ambush Paintball in Surrey that includes:

Playing fields dappled with trees and man-made bunkers set the stage for fast-paced, safe, and rainbow-homaging fun for players of all skill levels. Before battle commences, the expertly trained staff carefully outline how-tos on equipment operation, the rules of the game, and safety instructions. Once pigment snipers have suited up in their rental masks and have emotionally bonded with their rental gun, they can fire up to 200 varicoloured slugs at worthy opponents. The one-acre Dirt Mound field is a perfect locale for tint transactions, and a 250’x200’ city field lends a metropolitan air to both rapid-fire volleys and debates about fallacies of the colour purple. Alternatively, sharp-shooting Monets can bob and weave their way across five acres of well-plotted forest, which features plenty of bushball hidey-holes and sturdy trees for pledging undying allegiance to in exchange for shelter from hails of polychromatic cartridges.
Referees dot the field at all times, making sure safety is maintained and starving artists are escorted out. Because vegetable oil forms the balls of ammo, technicolored clothing washes up good as new. The cheerful staff at Ambush Paintball can answer questions concerning play or the premises. Private bookings are available for an additional charge.
Owned and operated by a cohort of passionate paintball players since 2001, Ambush Paintball's three recreational fields, with a fourth opening May 27th, constantly undergo grooming to ensure their safety and to accommodate new, challenging obstacles. A 200-foot-long tire wall, two-storey clock tower, and 50-foot easel for target practice adorn the massive 450'x250' Ambush City Field, whose square shape and symmetrical layout prevent either team from naming their strategies after famous couture dresses. Meanwhile, two mobile homes, nicknamed the Redneck Fortresses, shelter participants on the Grassy Mounds Field when they're not navigating the trenches and maze-like grassy paths on the outside. More paths abound on the 5-acre diamond-shaped Lost Forest Field, whose tree forts and barricades have hosted as many as 200 players at a time. Elsewhere, a celebrated speedball park hosts a range of guests––from first-timers to pros of the sport––for tournaments every Sunday.
