    Water Wars Pistol and Vest Game

    Forget what you think you know about water fights soldier. Get ready for some serious aquatic combat!

The difference is, though, that scoring a direct hit on these vests actually causes the victim to bleed! Well, maybe not bleed however upon impact, the vest will turn a bloody red, indicating you have been shot. No longer can you argue that your opponent ‘just missed’, this game tests skill and agility. The winner is the one who manages to finish off all of their opponents and with pistols as accurate and far-reaching as these, that’s an awful lot harder than it sounds.
