Draw, aim, hold breath ... Shoot! Take cover! Retreat ... Advance. Win! Or lose ... Laugh either way!!

Archery battle allows you to experience the excitement and dynamics of a battle, but in a friendly and harmless way. In each round two teams of markswomen/marksmen divide the battlefield between them and shoot at each other, until all members of the opposing team are eliminated.

Safety precautions are taken to avoid injuries, so that the game brings only enjoyment. Each player is equipped with a protective helmet and facemask, the bows are not very powerful (20lbls draw if I remember correctly), and the arrows have foam tips, thus removing the ability to penetrate the target. Think of it as paintball, but with bows and arrows. Receiving a hit does not cause any damage, and the worst consequence is that you're out of the game until the next round, or until a teammate manages to "resurrect" you. :)

We will have two options for the battle:
* a single-session game; 25 minutes of briefing and training and 50 minutes game time;
* a double-session game is Protected content long; Protected content (depends on the number of players) of briefing and training and the remaining time is for play.
In each round, the two teams can consists of up to 10 people. Thus, if we have more players, we will shuffle teams regularly and/or organize tournament so that everyone has an equal amount of play.
