At the sound of a whistle, two teams of five rush out onto a battlefield speckled with inflatable barriers, each player armed with a bow and a single foam-tipped arrow. The teams take cover and then quickly begin launching volley after volley of arrows at one another, hoping to tag opponents or knock out the five discs of a small target on the opposite end of the field.
Does this sound like something you might be interested in?
If so, you and your friends should get together to play archery tag, a sport that is touted as a cross between archery, dodgeball and paintball.
The activity is loosely managed by the company of the same name, Archery Tag, which has licensed the game out to individual businesses across the globe, and business seems to be booming. Archery Tag currently has over 660 licensees in 49 countries, the majority of those being in the United States. Finding a location to play a game is as easy as looking it up on the company’s website. (Remember to turn up the volume on the Facebook video below for the full experience.)
So, what do you think?
This definitely looks like something that could be part of bachelor party weekend, am we right? Just think, you could spend the afternoon shooting a few 3D targets, then really test your skills on moving targets – your friends!
Now, the hard part is going to be picking four other members of your team. Let us know who you would choose!
