Ultimate Thermostat Wars

Two teams compete for control of the Temperature
  (+1)

  [vote for,
against]

My idea is based upon epic battles between people who prefer warm, or cool houses.

Two teams, playing outdoors, try to change the temperature of a small shack located in the middle of the playing field. Armed with paintball or airsoft guns, the teams fight to switch the temperature to either hot, or cold.

Of course, there would be many different tactics, and they would change over the course of the year.

For example, the hot team might try to break out a window of the shack in the hot summer to heat it to heat up its inside, then, the cold team would have to enforce the window with convenient piles of foam insulation. Keep in mind this all is being done wile avoiding enemy fire.

Of course, the teams could fight for control of the MASTER THERMOSTAT (half a mile away from the shack), which would slowly change the temperature until one team won, or the thermostat it reclaimed, if no one keeps resetting the thermostat, it switches to neutral.

Going inside the shack is strictly prohibited, as is liquid nitrogen and setting the shack ablaze. The shack would be built in modular form to allow for more insulation to be added to make the game more fair throughout the course of the year.

       ...um, no, it's a shack, as in; a shed, or a small cabin...

       Just a wild guess here- fatties would aim for cooler temps.

       Unless they were aiming for the sauna effect - thats a winning strategy right there.

       I'm assuming the cold team has white paintballs and the hot team has black paint balls. By pelting the roof with white/black paint, they could reflect/absorb the sun's heat.

       Man, count me out if I'm goin up against Rowdy Roddy Piper again. That guy can have it as cold as he damn well pleases.
