What You'll Get
Paintball is like a production of Hamlet: it's exciting, demanding, and by the end, everyone has pretend-died. Take paintball arms against a sea of troubles with today's Groupon: for $20, you get paintball equipment and 200 paintballs (a $35 value) at the Everett Indoor Field of Boston Paintball in Everett.
When you step into the colorful crossfire at Boston Paintball, you'll be armed with its basic rental package of paintball equipment and 200 rounds of ammunition. Equipment provided by this package is a Tippmann 98 Custom paintball gun, a full-face goggle system, and unlimited air fills—a lust for bruises and welts on the skins of one's enemies is not included. With artillery and ammunition in hand, Boston Paintball guests can take to the 50,000-square-foot Everett Indoor Field, claimed by Boston Paintball to be the largest indoor paintball field in New England. As the air at Everett Indoor Field erupts in a frenzy of pigmentation, paintballers will duck, dodge, and commando-crawl from obstacle to obstacle, seeking a sheltered spot where they can unleash a vibrantly hued H, E, and a couple of hockey sticks upon combatants.
Additional accessories and additional paint can be purchased at additional costs, should paintball conflicts suddenly be taken to an intense new level after a heated argument about the validity of Hamiltonian democracy versus Jeffersonian democracy. Paint a mural of victory on the canvas of your opponent's chest with today's Groupon to Boston Paintball.

There are also nearly a hundred reviews on pbreview.com. Reviewers there say:
- The best field anywhere. I have never had a bad expirience [sic]. Refs are always helpful and kind. Fields are the best, they use a turf floor, and super 7 bunkers. They also change the field layout every day, so you'll never have the same play twice. – cthoop54
- Boston Paintball is a great place to play no matter what your ability level is. They break the games up into beginner/rental, intermediate, and advanced levels to keep it fun for everyone. – zderekv

About Boston Paintball
A lot of big things start in a garage; Boston Paintball, however, needed a warehouse. The team of paintball enthusiasts came together in 1992, and they spent 10 years in a downtown warehouse, introducing thousands of people to the sport and spilling more paint than an artist working on a tilt-a-whirl. But even that space eventually proved too small, and the company has since expanded to three locations in the greater Boston area.
Fully stocked pro shops and indoor fields greet players at the Chelsea and Ashland outposts. Maynard, on the other hand, takes the game outdoors. At every location, the staff keeps competition safe and fair, pairing up players based on ability from beginners all the way up to tournament level.
