The strongest friendships are forged in the fire of battle, but paintball is the only type of warfare in which those affinities develop between the casualties and Jackson Pollock's ghost. Combine combat and abstract apparitions with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a day of paintballing at Mansion House Paintball in Bear (a $30 value). This Groupon includes field fees ($10), equipment ($10), air ($5), and 200 paintballs ($5).
Rent Mansion House's 4.5 acres, which include two speedball and three woodsball fields, and contend with rivals for colored-dye domination until the paintball gun runs dry. Crawl on your belly over rocks and dash between bunkers with the whiz of small paint-filled capsules humming past your ears. Then, open fire while tucking, rolling, and shouting in slow motion—your enemies, best friends, or co-workers decimated in a splatter of color. Players have free reign over the pace of the game, and participants can join the combat at any time.
Mansion House holds melees only on Saturdays and Sundays, so make sure to secure reservations at least one week prior to scheduled skirmishes.

Mansion House Paintball
At Mansion House Paintball, mature trees tower over wooded fields with boughs battered by kaleidoscopic shrapnel. Paintball soldiers dive behind these tree trunks or weave through barrels, wood panels, or cable rungs in all-season, outdoor battle played in rain or sunshine. Individuals can walk on for games during the weekend, and private groups or corporate teams can reserve the fields for parties or retreats to determine who cleans out the corner office’s adjoining stable.
