If the Hundred Years' War had been fought with paintballs instead of rifles, it might still be happening, but it'd be so colorful that no one would mind. Experience your own vibrant battlefield with today's Groupon: for $32, you get one admission (a $35 value), gear rental with unlimited air, and 500 paintballs (a $25 value) at New Breed Paintball (a $60 total value). The fields are located in West Milford next to Camp Ocawasin and are open every Saturday and Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Monday through Friday by reservation only (minimum 10 players per reservation).
Spend an entire afternoon crawling on your belly over rocks and dashing between bunkers with the whiz of paint-filled capsules humming past your ears. Then, open fire and decimate enemies, friends, or co-workers in a splatter of color. New Breed Paintball has nine fields stocked with old tires, barrels, heaps of logs, and wall remnants that challenge fleet feet, sharp eyes, and trigger fingers to work together. A castle field allows paint-slingers to study the forces of wind resistance and splatter from a tall turret and within weathered, loggy walls.

Be sure to dress appropriately—the paint washes out of clothing, but you're going to get really dirty, no matter how gifted a sharpshooter you may be.
PBReviewers recommend New Breed Paintball:
- A lot can be said about a field by simply looking at the people who regularly play there. You'll know who the regulars are when you see them at New Breed. They're always willing to stop and help you out if you need anything......they're also the kind to draw a crowd. One more thing can be implied by looking at the players on the field; Some of the regular players work at New Breed! This may sound surprising, but I've always felt that if ones employees come their own field to play, it's a good sign that you're doing it right. – 1MPUR1TY
- The fields are pretty good. I played on Junkyard (a hybrid wood/speedball field), Castle (an all ground level fort), and Log jam (a true woodsball field with little in the way of cover and several logs piled up for bunkers). In addition the refs would occasionally combine fields making for a pretty big game. All of the fields are pretty well balanced and each side has its pros and cons. – Jweb617
