If the Hundred Years' War had been fought with paintballs instead of rifles, it might still be happening, but it'd be so colourful that no one would mind. Experience your own vibrant battlefield with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a day of paintball for two, including guns, 500 paintballs to split, unlimited air, masks, clothing, pod packs, and lunch, at Ottawa X-Treme Paintball, located in Stittsville (an $80 value).
Ottawa X-Treme Paintball indulges inner mercenaries with multicoloured battles on a rustic outdoor field. Paint slingers are armed with guns fed by unlimited air, pod packs, masks, and field clothing (a $20 value/person), plus 500 paintballs to split (a $40 value) and the option to bring their own inflatable chainmail. Stepping onto the outdoor field, combatants dodge pigment projectiles as they find cover behind evergreens, industrial spools, tractor tires, and shelters cobbled together from rough-hewn woods and old pallets. Come midday, a barbecue lunch of hot dogs, hamburgers, and refreshments replenishes warriors weary from thinking up paint-based insults. Today's deal grants entrance to two triggermen on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or Sundays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Itchy trigger fingers can pick up more paintballs starting at $10 for 100 rounds.
