Let the bullets fly in simulated war games
By Yoyo He

As a popular game for a couple of friends, a party, or to join in with a new group of people just for fun, the fast-paced shooting game laser tag is growing in popularity in Shanghai.

During the game, individual players are required to compete by “tagging” others on the opposite team. Points are awarded for hitting an opponent’s vest and gun, typically with a hand-held infrared-emitting targeting device. Simulations of combat, role play and even tactical configurations are needed to win.

Basic rules to get the most fun and accomplishment:

Those who work together toward a mutual goal have the highest chance of winning the game.

Shooting accurately is critical. Pointing the gun in the general direction of your opponent and pulling the trigger repeatedly will lower your chances of hitting and give the enemy a better chance to spot you.

Try to shoot from a variety of ranges to get used to how the sights work. Also shoot from a variety of positions include standing, kneeling and lying down.

As long as you grasp the above principles, you are ready for an exhilarating adventure at one of the following indoor laser tag playgrounds.

Still can’t get enough fun from the above locations? Head outdoors to give paintball a whirl. Paintball is a sport in which players compete to eliminate opponents by shooting them with capsules containing water-soluble dye and featuring a gelatin outer shell propelled from a device called a paintball marker.

Compared to leisure-oriented laser tag, paintball is regularly played at a sporting level with organized competitions involving major tournaments and professional teams.

If you want to simulate a real war and feel the paint pellets hit you, come check out the following outdoor paintball playgrounds in town.
