It doesn't get much more fun than splattering mom, dad, big brother or sister with paint. If you don't have a large group, that doesn't matter. A referee is on site to not only help pick teams, but to regulate the team play and keep the fast paced game going with various "scenarios" to keep everyone involved. Typical games will last between 20 to 30 minutes, depending on how many pellets are purchased. This field can accommodate up to eight players at a time.
