umm, first of all, you do know this game happened already, right?

secondly, that price is wrong, that used to be the price if you bought only one case, and the lowest it would go(10 cases?) was 72. Now(at least for scenario games, probably different for a day of play), its around 76 per case no matter how many you buy, but now air is free, so its a trade off.

ok thanks, i know it already happened, i just wanto to get a general idea of how much i should save up

so 59 for entry

76x3 (possibly more) is 228

228+59= 287 and then another 80 for gas (providing my dad will pay half like he said he would), possibly 100 for vendors depending on my mood....(then again, i highly doubt ill actually spend money on vendors)

total= 467 (includes vendors)
needed= 367 (no vendors)

sweet, im already 2/3 there

ninja edit- i now have 300

I only buy one how much paint do you need to play? I mean you do understand there is 2000 paintballs in a case correct? How much shooting do you do? I do a good bit but not anything over a case is a little much for me...

The Dark, if your mask fogs up your screwed it happened to me near the end of the night and I was a blind man running around with a paint grenade, lol. Yeah and bring a huge flash light if ya have one... Hope that helps

i know a case is 2000, but if the game is 2 days 24 hour, then i will prbly need 3

cuzz from 12-5 at my field i end up running out and this game is 12-10 for 2 days

thanks for the advice on a flashlight.....is it ok to be a sneaky bastard and go to the german base while the game is still on with no flashlight then pop up and cause chaos

Hmmmm, well my friend be my guest if you want to turn off your flash light and tip toe to the german side and just knock' um all out then be my guest But then I'll be waiting for ya with the rest of the German Army and light you up

LOL, just kidding but both sides have spot lights and the woods get light up pretty well so sneaking aint gonna help that much...

Yes its $72 a box of paint; down from $115 Which it used to be a while ago.

Registration is around $50.

Also remember it is once a year; and in my opinion. it is worth the money. They are cleaning up their act there for sure. And I am sure next year will only be better!
