Maximum Strategery

Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori. It is sweet and fitting to die for one's country, said Roman poet Horace. However, if you’re more comfortable watching Stripes than enlisting, you might try Tempe Paintball as the remedy for your bloodlust.

Every Thursday and Tuesday from noon to 9 p.m., the 12,000-square-foot facility slashes its standard $24.99 field fee in half, meaning you and your buddies can squad up and wage battle on the cheap. Whether you're a laser-focused ninja who uses maximum strategery to stalk his human prey or an all-out gal who blitzes and ambushes in hopes of turning enemies into living Jackson Pollock paintings, the place has whatever you need to slake your savagery. Or maybe you just love wearing those welts and bruises as purple-to-yellow badges of honor around the office. That's cool, too.

Tuesdays, Thursdays. Starts: July 1. Continues through Sept. 16, 2008
