Just come back from a morning’s paintballing in the forest.
In theory, running around shooting folk (who are shooting back) might generate some interesting thoughts for tabletop skirmish games. Unfortunately, I could see so little through my thoroughly-fogged visor that I might as well have spent most of my morning with my head in a bucket of grey paint. So something of a missed opportunity.
As an illustration of this lack of vision, I walked into the boundary fence more than once, and narrowly stopped myself from running into a tree (where’d that come from?). When my gun jammed, I had so little vision that I couldn’t see whether the motorised ammo feed was on or off. And that’s the gun I was holding up to my face. Spotting someone hiding in a bunker 10 yards away? I can’t even see the bunker.
There is one small point of interest to be salvaged though, to do with the hit location tables that I’ve been playing with for my retro SF game. Judging by the various welts I’m now sporting, I’ve got it about right 🙂
