Spitball technology has come a long way since its invention in 1982. Initially a spitball was made of saliva-soaked paper and propelled by the combination of an empty pen and breath. In 1999, an important discovery irrevocably altered the spitball landscape. Now spitballs are shot with semi-automatic CO2-powered weapons instead of empty pens. And due to the increasing concern for deforestation, spitballs are made out of a more renewable resource: thin-skinned, paint-filled gel caps. Check out the enormous advancements in spitballs at Randolph Paintball with today’s Groupon.

A one-on-one fencing battle with the dragon snake from the Marines ads is not included.
Randolph Paintball will provide you with all you need: a gun, mask, camo jacket, gloves, and 200 paintballs. (Additional paintballs must be purchased from Randolph Paintball and cost $25 for 500.)

There's no better place to read reviews for a paintball operation than on a paintball site. Below are a few Randolph Paintball reviews from pbreview.com. While there are a few naysayers (probably Section 8 army dismissals), most reviews are very positive. The first review below by Ruthless Steve puts the skeptics in their place:
- "Randolph Paintball is a field dedicated to keeping a clean fun place to play. people bash it becasue [sic] you sorta have to earn respect there and by not acting like a baby who cant help them selves [sic] and a grown person. refs are nice but dont take crap like a good ref should. this place is good for any level of play and type." – Ruthless Steve
- "I played at the outdoor field on saturday. Their fields were good and they just set up a brand new speed ball field which was really cool and have a even bigger one right next to it that you can play a bunch of people on. They also have a huge fort which is good fun."– Swissas
- "I started playing paintball at this field and i am glad i did. The staff is very helpful for inexperienced and pro players." – PullTheStars
- "This is a place more for recreation and maybe practicing, its more fun, the staff is really nice and they're all cool" – l1ryan1l
To make every game as exciting, safe, and enjoyable as possible, Randolph Paintball personnel conduct a safety orientation before grouping each game's 15 to 25 players into teams based on age and ability. The center also employs professional referees to oversee every 10- to 15-minute bout, as players target their rivals with semiautomatic, air-powered marking guns during scenarios such as capture the flag and elimination. Rounds unfold across the two outdoor location's eight fields, where participants duck into foxholes or overtake the Lord of the Rings–inspired Helms Deep fortress.
