It was NOT fine. The problem with playing with this game is that some people take it way too seriously... It would appear that the many layers of clothing help to lessen the pain from the impact of the pallets. It would also appear that unlike us they knew how much it hurt when you got shot with paintball pallets hence all the layers.
The following day we were both purple and never did I see such a pretty coloured bruise as the one pictured above (remember this photo was taken 6 days after the event). Since then we have both come to the conclusion that paintball tag will not be added on to our list of fun things that we want to do again someday.
