Paintball is a lot like chess in that both require complex strategizing and both are almost impossible to win against autonomous robots. Face some less metallic opponents with today's Groupon: for $20, you get admission, guns, masks, air, and overalls for two, plus 100 paintballs to share (a $74 total value), at Back Country Paintball.
Back Country Paintball sculpts more than 16 acres of rustic Muskoka landscape into safe and thrilling action terrain. Paint-slingers play survival of the cleanest while prowling playing fields modeled after urban warfare, a Wild West town, and a pit-course level from the game Call of Duty. Contenders enter the field with guns, unlimited air, and masks (a $20 value per person), plus overalls (a $5 value), and 100 total paintballs (a $12 value). From there, triggermen and women dodge pigment projectiles by ducking behind boulders and pines, diving into bunkers, or shamelessly standing behind a teammate.
Newbies can brush up on need-to-know info before a trip into Technicolor tag with Back Country's FAQ page. Extra paintballs can be purchased in Back Country's pro shop.
