Some of the guys at a vendor we use know I love paintball and that some of the guys at work all play together. So they challenged us to a game.

What was cool is that most of the people that played on both sides were new to paintball.

Since this isn't really about the type of game we played, I'll give a quick rundown on the game. They let me setup the game, and I don't really like speedball, especially for new people, so I contacted a local field and came up with a three flag capture the flag game. I didn't really know the rules for three-flag, so we made up our own. In short, Each team has two flags at their base. You had to capture one of the other teams flag and return it to your base. Then plant your second flag at the "objective" flag, which had been hidden by the refs. We respond dead players every 20 minutes so everyone would get a chance to play more.

The play we played and let us use two fields put together, which was two or three acres. There was enough trails and thick brush with plenty of places to hide, so you never knew when you were going to run into the other team.

We had about 12 people on each side and played it as a private game.

We ended up playing two rounds over about three hours and everyone was just dead tired by the end.

It was really neat to see people get really excited about their first "kill". By the end, we had a couple of women that just wanted to shoot somebody! I'm glad they were on my team!

We let people bring their kids, and one of them just got peppered. He had bruises all over him, but he loved it and now he's got some cool stories to tell his friends.

What was weird, was this game sort of became legendary in the community. We had to delay it a couple of times due to business needs, raining, and flooding in the area so the myth kind of grew. I went to an Academy sports store, and there was a couple of kids there talking about it like it was some big showdown between the companies and they had heard about it from a friend of a friend who's father told someone....yadda yadda...you know how stuff spreads.

Anyway - we have at least four new people hooked and they're planning on attending a big scenerio game in Red Rock, Texas. It's amazing how this stuff spreads.

Now if I can just get my wife to quit shooting wasp nests with my Tiberius TAC 8 (I'm not kidding) and come play one time, I think I can get her hooked too. B)

nice job!!
ive been trying to get more and more of my freinds into paintball. The problem is that the only way that you can really get someone hooked is to take them, and I cant take everyone. I took a couple of my freinds and now there both thinking about getting guns.

Just be sure to overstress safety with new people. Make sure they know to never take off their masks until they are in a designated safe area, etc.

hahaha hatchet, that is fricken funny. it took me a while to understand it but i finally got it and thats funny. you should let the new players get use to shooting somebody. like let the people that have never been shot shoot some older person that can take the pain so they see that it doesnt really hurt and they play harder. i know when i first started that i was kinda afraid to get hit but once i realized that it didnt hurt, i was a whole different story
