Hi, this is Robert Stewart, with Hill thirteen.com.
Today we’re going to talk about paint ball games, the variations on those, on those games.
There’s several different ways to play almost all these games and that usually depends upon
the field itself. What kind of features the field has, and what kind of specific rules
that field owner likes for that particular game. Now, that said, almost all games conform
to, to five basic rules. And those rules, are that, you know, at the beginning of every
game, all players have a starting position, where they all have to remain until the whistle
or the air horn goes off, saying that the game has begun. The second thing is, when
you’re hit, you’re eliminated. That means that you lift your gun in your arm and you
walk off the field. The third thing is, that if you’ve been shot, you’ve been eliminated,
then you can’t talk to the other players on your team. You can’t tell them, hey, that
guy’s running to that bunker, or , I think they’re all over in those bushes. Once you’re,
once you’re eliminated, you’re eliminated, and you can’t give any intelligence to your
team mates. The next rule is the basic capture the flag rule, and that is, if you’re running
with the flag and you’re shot, you have to drop the flag wherever you were shot, and
leave it there and walk off the field. At the same, and the fifth rule is that if you’re
carrying the flag, running from point A to point B, you can’t hide the flag, you have
to keep the flag in plain sight. Usually, you’ll see a player, holding his arm out with
the flag in it, so that everyone around him can see the flag while he’s running with his
weapon, in his other hand. Those are the five basics. As we go forward, we’re going to talk
about, probably a dozen games that they, the rules may vary slightly from field to field
in general, we’ll explain the rules to those games, and we’ll also simply explain some
general tactics that will allow you to be effective in trying to win that game.
