There are many different game scenarios and formats available at Burrungule Park Paintball, but typically, a group of players will divide into two teams and play ‘capture the flag’. Depending on the size of the playing field, the number of players on each team can vary from four to five and even up to fifteen or twenty.
The object is to capture the other team’s flag while defending your own. In your quest to capture the flag, you must try to eliminate opposing players by tagging them with a paintball. The games are usually limited to around 15 to 25 minutes but could range from 10 minutes to a few hours, depending on the size of the field and the number of players.
Between games, players take a break to check over their equipment, reload paintballs and take the time to refresh with food and drink while recalling the thrills of victory and (often funny) agonies of defeat. Win or lose, there’s fun to be had by all.
