Whether your game is Capture the Flag or elimination, woodsball or speedball, it's time to cover up in protective gear, crouch behind the nearest obstacle and splatter your buddies with paintballs.

Paintball has become a phenomenon with about 5 million players nationwide, according to the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association - including thousands of Long Islanders, local venues say. Recognized as an extreme sport, paintball combines the fun of a childhood game of hide-and-seek with the excitement of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
