Paintball is a lot like chess in that both require complex strategizing and both are almost impossible to win against autonomous robots. Hone sharpshooting skills for the robot-run future with today's Groupon: for $20, you get an unlimited-time, deluxe rental paintball outing with mask, gun, CO2 canister, and 500 paintballs at Extreme Paintball (a $39.99 value) in Waterbury, Connecticut.

Extreme Paintball hosts the bombardments of outdoor air-gun enthusiasts on 50 wooded acres of obstacle-ridden battlefield. During the unlimited-time deluxe rental on Saturday or Sunday, amateur snipers can spend up to six hours (the duration the park is open) speckling each other with pigmented pellets on one of six playing courses: four wooded fields, one speedball field, and one sup-air arena. To simulate a warzone, mock tanks, faux plane crashes, and replica CNN reporters speckle the grounds, but to maintain fair play, trained referees supervise the action. In its emphasis on safety, Extreme Paintball guides all newcomers through a short orientation on rules and best practices to avoid injury before taking to the forest.

Extreme Paintball supplies a mask, goggles, belt, gun, CO2 canister with unlimited refills, and 500 paintballs as part of the cost of entry for gunners without their own arsenal. Its experts recommend wearing loose-fitting long-sleeve shirts and long pants, however tempting it may be to tie-dye one's leotard.

Extreme Paintball

Jim, the owner and operator of Extreme Paintball, bought his first paintball marker––a Nelspot 007––more than 20 years ago. Shortly after discovering his passion, he toured the country on a National Professional Paintball League team, retiring after 11 years to open Extreme Paintball. Nowadays, Jim and his staff work to introduce new players to his preferred method of paintball: woodsball. Contrasting with bunker-based speedball, woodsball is played in the natural outdoors, such as in the woods or at the bottom of the ocean.

At Extreme Paintball, Jim's three vast courses are designed around different scenarios with thematic obstacles scattered throughout to enhance the experience. The tank course carries the scars of war as crashed planes and the wrecked husks of tanks litter the battlefield, and the Vietnam course is shrouded in the area's densest foliage, finally making use of all the artificial trees populating the region. Jim's team rotates the courses throughout the year to preserve the environment and create an ever-changing battlefield.
