If You Love Paintball, Then You Will Love Archery Tag

If you have played dodgeball or paintball and you liked it, then this one is for you.

The idea is for two teams to shoot each other with arrows. Sort of reminds me of The Hunger Games; let’s hope they stay with arrows. Before anyone starts to complain, the game is actually a lot less painful than paintball, as the tips of the arrows are made of foam.

Archery Tag said on its website, two teams, consisting of 5 players each playing opposite one another, are separated by a “safe zone.” Each team also has what we call a “5-Spot Knockout Target.”  There are two objectives:

1) Tag the opponents

2) Knock out the five discs of the opposing team’s target.

You eliminate a player by tagging him or her with an arrow, or by catching his or her arrow.

The 5-Spot Targets work to save a “life” of one of the players.  A “tagged” player can be called back into the game when a target spot is knocked out or when a teammate catches an arrow.

John Jackson, founder of Archery Tag, said: “In the spring of 2011, while working on a new archery product, there was the idea of placing a foam tip on an arrow and shooting each other with it. Within an hour or so, the first prototype and a new sport was born!”

It looks like a lot of fun, but I may just leave this one to my husband and the kids.
