Need scenario/big game info

I've been searching and searching and cannot find any big games/scenario games closer then like 7 1/2 hours from me. Are they that scarce in the midwest or am I just not looking in the right places for information? Any help would be fantastic.

You can start by checking the websites of fields near you for an event schedule. Some may not have Calendars out yet for 2013 but some should. Then I always look here in the Scenario/big game section and check other big paintball forums.

Everything Firehawk said and I'll add more.
If you still cannot find any close to you, why not try suggesting a scenario idea to your local field(s)? This may work if you have enough supporters behind you when you approach the field owners. Bring enough information, mock up objectives, maps, pricing.. The suck. Good luck you to!

Thanks guys. I have been looking on here and it seems most threads for games are far away. What other paintball forums are good to look at? I'm located in Topeka, KS.

Ummm.. Gee, does anyone else still use Spec Ops Brigade thingy? I used to use that for games and what not. Not sure if that's still around though /:

Spec ops paintball used to be a huge provider in the woodsball game, but I don't know if they're still around.
Anyways, they had a Facebook type thing, called The Brigade. You could sign up for free, add your paintball playing friends, add your gear for points (like PbNation Pursuit) and be ranked up in your brigade of friends. Many bigger fields or people that played at those fields often would put up scenario information about a specific field, dates, times, whatever. It used to be awesome, since woodsball was all I knew, but I'm not sure it's around anymore, you may want to check it out though :p

I hate big games! Fields are way too crowded and its basicly a gimic to get people to spend a fortune on paint. The teams are never fair. There is no room for tactics and manuvers. And if the fields are too big its just a hassel for people to walk half a mile back to the starting point, which results in everyone whiping off shots. So it comes down to whichever team has the richest people who buy the most paint to push back the other side wins...Also they overcharge for the events and its just not worth the extra expense if you have to drive more than a couple hours and have to pay for a place to stay.

I suggest you stay away from huge scenario productions! Especially Living Legends!

Red Winter at The Edge Paintball (Wichita, KS) is in March - the exact date hasn't been set yet. Last year it had a ton of players. My team plans on going this year.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion... but scenarios are some of the best events ever. Where else can a person go and play paintball with hundreds if not thousands of others. It's an awesome experience. Obviously, there are some instances of cheating and unfair play; but most of the time players are honorable about calling hits. As for being more expensive... paintball is an expensive sport either way you look at it. Here's an idea to save money... do not shoot so much paint. For smaller weekend events, I just go play pump all weekend and shoot several hundred rounds.

Honestly, paintball is paintball whether its on the tournament field or at the huge scenario.

There are huge games such as D-Day Oklahoma like four hours from you. Possibly one of the best games in Midwest if not the US. I know it was the largest game for awhile, not sure if it is anymore. I know my team will be going this year. It's a weeek of paintball with major vendors.

But like Jake aka kansasassassin said, dropzone in lawrence has a few games, edge in wichita has a few games and elite sports and graffiti have games as well.

You're most likely hard pressed to find games because no one has released schedules yet. Most local event planning is done once larger events have posted dates (ie, PSP, NPPL, UWL, AES Series, ESS series, etc.). I know The Edge is waiting for the final dates from PSP to be posted before we even begin really promoting our next big game so there is no conflict with local teams that want to play these events. Give it a couple weeks and I think you'll find a lot more info.

The Edge should have some info coming up for our spring game, Red Winter, coming soon. We'll post it on here as well as on our website, edgepaintball.com once we have an idea on PSP dates

Can't wait. I had a blast last year at this event and we're getting the entire team out this year.
