Two teams battle it out to eliminate the opposition team members by tagging them with an arrow, or by catching arrows fired at them. It's an intense action alternative to paintball while being safe enough for kids to play.
The two things that makes Archery Combat so popular is that you are all in close quarters so a) there is a lot of sledging that goes on and b) you get to see all the action as it unfolds, (unlike paintball where you often only hear about it). The bows are easy to fire and I was surprised how easy it is to hit your target. (For 8 years old +)
Archery Combat is one of those games that videos and descriptions just doesn’t do it justice, it’s not until you actually play that you fully appreciate it and then within 2 minutes your hooked.
