Playing paintball and poker are two of the most popular activities among people who want to get together and let off a little steam. If you are looking for a truly unique experience that you and your friends will never forget, you can combine these two activities by creating your own game of paintball poker run. Read on to find out how to create your own game of paintball poker run.
Poker run is a new game sensation where racers complete a set course and have to collect different cards along the way. This game easily lends itself to paintball, as you simply need to place cards in envelopes that you scatter around the paintball course. Of course, it is a good idea to make sure that you place the envelopes in waterproof bags to make sure that the cards can still be read easily if they accidentally get splattered with a paintball pellet.
One the cards have been placed by a referee, the paintball game can be played in the usual way with two teams doing battle against each other. This time, instead of trying to capture the other team’s flag, the teams try to collect as many cards as possible. It is a good idea to scatter at least thirty cards around the course to provide plenty of opportunities for both teams to gain enough cards to make a poker hand.
The team that wins is the one that can make the best poker hand out of the cards that they have collected. In order to make sure that you do not miss out on the winning sequence, it is a good idea to brush up on your knowledge of different hand combinations.
Naturally, the more cards you team is able to capture, the higher the chances are that you will be able to form a strong hand. The real fun comes when two opponents spot an envelope at the same time.
