Paintball is a lot like chess in that both require complex strategizing and both are almost impossible to win against autonomous robots. Play friendly with fellow humans with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a bronze paintball package for two at Storm Warning Paintball in New Minas (a $50 value). This Groupon is valid only for Sunday walk-on play from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Paintballers descend upon Storm Warning for year-round play on its indoor and outdoor fields. Combatants can settle arguments about neoclassical art with bouts of civilized splatter fighting, supplied by Tippmann 98 Custom semiautomatic paintball guns with 200-round hoppers, HPA air tanks with unlimited refills, masks with thermal fog-resistant goggles, barrel sleeves, and 300 paintballs each. Outside, paint slingers shellac one another on the X Ball Sup Air field or the forested field, where they avoid getting candy-coated by dodging behind trees, pallets, old tractors, and an abandoned squirrel school bus. The indoor course sports support beams, barrels, and a dimensional door (an additional field fee of $5 for indoor use). As a team sport focused on game planning and group strategy, paintball equalizes individual skill level and creates a welcoming environment for all players. Storm Warning only allows field paint, and extra rounds are available starting at $6 for 100 rounds.
