Scenareo's Give them a Try!

If you are new to paintball or are just getting burnt out with either the Tuerny Scene or playing Recball ove a weekend with the same few faces you might want to consider trying your hand at a Scenareo.

Scenareos have been around for a while now and are steadily gaining in popularity. Most scenareos pit hundreds of players evenly split into 2 or more sides agianst each other for an entire weekend.

It is a chance to get out of town, camp, hang out with friends and play paintball in what can often be a fun and layed back atmoshpere. At a Scenareo you can play as much or as little as you desire and still enjoy a few days with like minded teams and individuals.

Below are links to some of the larger Natinal Producers. They are usualy your best bet for a good time if you are wanting to try a Scenareo for the first time.

Mackx Extreme Sports (MXS)
www.mxsportz.com

Black Cat
http://www.blackcatpaintball.com/

Viper
www.viperpaintball.com

And the Grandaddy of Scenareo Paintball
Wayne Dollack!
http://www.waynes-world.com/wd24event.html

This list is by NO means complete, as there are many companies across the nation that put on decent Scenareos. You can also check your larger local fields for Big Games and Scenareos that they may be producing "in house'. Give a Scenareo a try, you may find you will never play any other kind of Paintball afterwords.

Scenario games are totally different experience from you speedball and even your standard woodsball.
Mstrtal is correct, you should have a great time. Scenario games let you play at your own pace, you can lead assaults, play sniper, defense, offense, medic, spy, etc. It doesn't have to be fast paced like speedball or slower like woodsball, you can pretty much concentrate on having fun and play it to your preference.
Get out and try one, they are quickly gaining popularity and should slowly take over a field near you.

Its also important to note how many different kinds of scenarios there are. The promoters mentioned each utilize different rules and styles of play. With any of these though, you should expect small unit and large battle action, with unconventional weapons, nighttime play, and even tanks.
MXS games offer gigantic turnouts, big prizes, and parties the night before the game, as well as great gameplay.
Dollock games have some unique rules, including the interrogation of captured players and the extensive use of play money that can be converted to points for your side.
Viper games are played in real time. The commanders come up with their own missions instead of having them radioed in.
I've never played a Black Cat game but from the looks of the website they appear to have excellent storylines and a national following.

I want to go to a scenario, but none of my friends will come with me, in their words "I can't have fun in a scenario, not enough action!" Or "I only play speedball." I may just go by my lonesome sometime.

Dollack's Finale

Love the scenario's. It offers you all the different aspects of paintball. If you are a rec-player then you have all the good times you want long balling and sneaking. If you want to duke it out with the heavy hitters, more power to you. I have seen guys going out on the field with over 1000 rounds strapped onto them. And then there is the place for the role players. People who enjoy getting into the story and completing not just missions but specific roles during the game. I know that I will be at the Grand Finale this year for sure and I am hoping to hit a few of his smaller scenario's in between.

One thing to mention about scenario play...

Just like tourney ball, it's a lot more fun if you go with a team. If you don't have a team of your own to run with, try to hook up with some other players who have done the scenario thing before. The rules and play are a lot different than your average game, and there are a lot of questions that you may have that vets could answer for you.

Here's my starter list of things to bring to a scenario to make sure you have a good time:

Waterproof boots - You may be slogging through swamps or standing in rain-soaked trenches. Waterproof boots are a must.

Decent Radio - Many teams run radios now as a general rule. Get one with plenty of power (8-10 mile range) and privacy codes.

Backup Marker - Nobody wants to sit on the sidelines for an hour fixing a gun while the good play is going on.

Quick food - Scenario is a marathon, not a sprint, and you have to fuel your engine if you want to be able to run non-stop for the length of the game. Protein bars are a good choice here.

Plenty of Water - You have no clue how much you need to drink to stay in the field all day! I have a 100 oz camelback and I drained it dry 3 times in the course of a day of play. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!

Gloves and Kneepads - Unlike the tourney scene, you'll be sneaking and running, and dodging through terrain that can really mess up an unprotected body. That log bunker that you're ready to slide into on your knees may have a big 'ole rock right in the middle of it just waiting for you to crack your knee on.

Hopefully you'll find that Scenario is a fun, challenging way to spend your paintball $$$ and come back to play again.

Robertssr has a really good point about water. It's very easy to neglect your needs and becoming dehydrated will put you down for a couple of days. As the wise and powerful Pacman once told us "If you're not urinataing you're not hydrating." The camelbak fits into many a vest now and is probably the best way to go. Don't buy a canteen, I did that in a moment of absentmindedness. I felt my IQ dropping when I realized suddenly why that doesnt work on the field.

Last scenario I played was in almost 40 degree (celsius) weather, and my camelbak was my best friend. I've got to find some kind of belt/vest that can accomodate both my camelbak and a 20oz CO2 tank in a vertical position now.

Flurry Vest

As a side to the hydration issue and a very well laid out carry all, the Flurry Emissary vest is a very nice item to carry not only your extra paint and hydration bladder but it also has some nice pockets for keys and ID along with a tank pack that will more than accomodate either a 20oz. or 68cu tank.

I agree completely that you must stay hydrated and when there is 1/2 hour reinsertions that does not give you a whole lot of time to go and chase down something to drink. You might be hauling 800 rounds of paint on your back with a 112cu tank but you need to have some liquid for your body to sustain you the time it takes to use up all that paint.
