Paintball dueling has been a popular method of conflict resolution in America ever since Aaron Burr humiliated Alexander Hamilton by forcing him to wear the scarlet splotch of shame. Mete out your own colorful vengeance with today’s Groupon: for $24, you get admission, gear, and 100 paintball rounds at Operation Paintball in Hampshire (a $48 value). Operation Paintball is open Saturdays and Sundays only.

Sporting one of the biggest outdoor paintball fields in the Midwest, Operation Paintball employs a professional staff of skirmish facilitators who take great pride in their premier battle zones and steady safety record. Today's deal allows gunslingers to join in the open-game battle royale equipped with a semi-automatic weapon, hopper, CO2, and goggles, and 100 paintball rounds give weekend warriors the chance to plug 100 different people once or to punish one person for 100 different breaches of etiquette. Paint-slingers can explore 13 outdoor battle arenas, which feature challenging trenches, harrowing hilltops, thick underbrush, huge oak trees, and bunkers. One of the Midwest’s first concept fields, the classic Speedball arena requires strategy and furious action to penetrate a bunker surrounded by a picket fence, while the natural features and two-story forts of Mother Earth allow Technicolor strategists to dominate opponents as thoroughly as Napoleon dominated his nightly crème brûlée.

Operation Paintball

Colored paint pellets slice the air and splatter on the rough bark of large oaks and every once in a while on the back of an enemy. During paintball play, shouts and laughter reverberate through the forest canopy as the thudding of footsteps cuts through thick underbrush. Players on the 12 outdoor fields at Operation Paintball engage rival teams during bouts of capture the flag and last-man-standing shootouts, hoping to earn victory for their mates and impress Mom one more time. The Mother Earth field's tall trees stand between natural bunkers, the Speedball concept field boasts a circle of broken wooden picket fences surrounding a central bunker, and wooded slopes take over the Yellow, Blue, and Candy fields. Staffers prepare guests to safely skirmish by providing masks, secure goggles, and padded vests, each of which has helped to contribute to the facility's perfect safety record.
