Archery Tag VS Paintball
No mess Reusable ammunition Painless tagging Can be played indoors or outside Brand new
Very messy! Very expensive to replace ammunition! Causes painful bruises/welts! Needs to be played outdoors! Been there, done that!
The patented S.A.F.E. Archery™ Arrow, with our exclusive Safe Nock™ and soft foam tip, offer the same flight characteristics of a standard arrow yet is much safer. Being "tagged" feels similar to being hit by a soft ball, leaving no marks/bruises. The arrow combined with the mask makes Archery Tag a very safe and enjoyable activity.
If you get hit, you are eliminated and must stand off to the side; please leave your mask on while exiting the field for safety purposes. If a team-mate either catches an arrow or knocks one off the five spot targets completely out of the target on the opposing team, then an eliminated player on your team may re‐enter the game in the order they were eliminated. Continue playing this way either until all targets or players are eliminated on one team. All body hits count. We do not encourage head shots however they occasionally happen. If the referee notices someone continuously shooting at the head, they will be asked to leave the field and not be able to return and play for this event. If an arrow hits your bow it does not count, if it bounces off the ground or an obstacle first, it does not count. This is based on an honour system, however the referee has the final say and there will be no arguments or you will be asked to leave the field.
Safety zone This area is to gather arrows and return to your combat area. It is also designed to maintain a safe shooting distance between players. You cannot shoot or be shot in this area; if this happens it will not count.
You are allowed to leave the boundary lines only to retrieve arrows not to shoot or hide
Do not throw equipment, use it to hit people, or obstruct arrows
No rough play
Masks must be worn at all times while on the field and when on the sidelines waiting to re-enter play
Always be sure arrow has a foam tip prior to shooting
