Paintball Dday Games

Paintball has expanded the different ways that the game can be played.

When it comes to the recreational sport of Paintball, the game tests the skills and teamwork abilities of players to successfully eliminate their opponents. However, paintball players began to get more creative with how the game could be played. With the introduction of “scenario” games, such as Capture the Flag and Hostage, the game itself became more popular. One of the more notable scenario games is called “D-Day”, a war-like simulation of the June 6, 1944 battle between the Allied Forces and Nazi Germany on the shores of Normandy, France. Popular D-Day scenario games exist all around the country and are attractions to some of the sports’ most dedicated players.
