Painted Desert

During our college days it was more than enough to sample some hallucinatory substances and head into the nearby woods resembling a Yes album cover to do battle with Star Trek-style phaser guns that fired glow in the dark discs. Such antics pale in comparison to what you can do with paintballs. For example, when the video game-inspired Halo Scenario Series kicks off this weekend there will be a number of multi-player missions/competitions, including “Assault,” “Capture the Flag,” “King of the Hill,” and “Oddball.” All of the above read slightly more challenging than denying a phaser hit – especially since paintballs leave a brightly colored mark. Players survive on their military-like tactical skills, speed, determination, plus a little luck.
