Basically lots of people running around with spongy swords soaked in paint trying to bash each other. If you get a paintmark larger then the regulations say, you are out.

Elite people may recieve bows and arrows with paint soaked sponge tips.

Shields are available, too.

All those lovely pre-crash croissants, just poof. Dragon

       This needs its own theme park. [Link]   

       Something very similar to this was baked at Chislehurst Caves in Kent, England, when I was a lad (15-20 years ago). People would go there and do the whole dress-up, wizards, dwarves, homemade-rubberised-axes bit.   

       Apparently, it was enormous fun, so I shall use my +1 Enchanted Croissant of Thragnor.

       Obvious. Awesome. Why hasn't it caught on everywhere?

       Sounds like the SCA.

       I played King Harold when I was 12 in our class's reenactment of the Battle of Hastings. One kid's dad was a props designer for the BBC and provided us with foam axes, maces, swords etc. We dressed in hessian and whacked each other about the head until I screamed and pretended to get an arrow in my eye. I would gladly do it again.

       Also I think this would hurt less. Especially if you are playing with ill-equipped peasants. Croissant for messiness.

       A trebuchet, parked somewhat - ahem - at a distance from this event, could lob in the occasional Rubbermaid 35-gallon Brute loaded with Cpthalo Green.

       I think that hitting people with a paint sword would be a good addition to mu Segway CTF game.
quantum_flux, Mar 20 2008
  

       Who wouldn't play this?   

       It would also be cheaper than real paintball as you don't have to refill complex guns or buy overpriced bullets etc. You bring your sword and shield and dip them in paint.   

       How's about jousting?
