As I arrived at the huge paintball arena with several fields I found out that it is played by way more people than I thought. There are even national leagues for paintball players.
It is a great social game. You come to “communicate” with your friends on a different level. You choose a team leader (usually it is the dominant one in the group), set a strategy, load your “weapon” and here we go: feel the adventure and the adrenaline.
FUN AND EXERCISE
Running through the woods, hiding behind walls and bunkers, aiming at your opponents and hoping that they dont move just for the next one second and shoot! The anticipation of the countdown being count to zero – the moment you start running like hell – is a great amount of positive stress. And dont underestimate the value of the exercise that comes with such a game. Aside of periods of sitting, waiting and crawling there is a serious amount of running, sprinting and jumping.
IT IS IN OUR BLOOD
We have always been a violent species. It is however better to shoot with paintballs and afterwards enjoy a cold beer with your “enemy” than what really happens on so many battlefields in the world.
So let out the violence that is coded in your DNA with the help of paintballs.
