The first American settlers, whose vision was often impaired by moldy-bread-induced hallucinations, disliked the country’s drab brown crops and gray hills and used paintball guns to make amber waves of grain and purple mountain majesties. Change your surroundings’ colors with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get entrance, a semi-automatic marker, a mask, 200 paintball rounds, and gas for an entire session (a $35 value), plus camo jacket rentals if they’re available (a $5 value), at Plainville Paintball in Plainville. Players can storm the fields on Saturdays from 9:30–1 or from 1–4:30 and on Sundays from 10:30–4:30.
Plainville Paintball’s outdoor woodsball and tournament speedball fields are designed to challenge novice and pro paint blasters alike. Organized into small teams according to age and skill level, gunslingers fire pigment at enemy troops and tree-hollow-hiding pals in games such as capture the flag, elimination, center flag, and life-sized Monopoly. Mark a stranger with bright washable blotches and honor your fellow man with a red welt of courage as you dodge whizzing paint spheres and dash between bunkers. Professional, courteous referees make sure rules aren’t broken and paintball etiquette is followed so no one brings grappling hooks to scale trees and drop water balloons on helmets.
Each game lasts around 10–15 minutes, and players are welcome to play as many games as possible during the session. Final games begin at 4. Only field paint provided by Plainville Paintball may be used with rental guns, so if you run out of ammo, additional paint capsules can be purchased ($5 for 100, $25 for 500) or stolen from squirrels.
Reservations recommended for groups of six or more. This Groupon is only valid at the Plainville location.
