Info for playing?

Good morning everyone,
As I am brand new to this sport of Airsoft, and I am planning on attending a local game here in NS next month, I'd let to get some of the ground rules down on playing airsoft while on the field.
Can anyone recommend a good site? Or thread on this forum that describes rules and things during the game?
Obviously I know if I am in a game and I get hit, I raise my hand and say "Hit!" or "I'm out" or something like that

There's at least one thread stickied at the top of the Newbie Tank that has some info on doing exactly what you describe.

There are some "standard rules" that everyone usually goes by, but all rules are up to the organizer of the game.

Awesome, thank you very much. I also just checked out Wikipedia and they have a little bit of a helpful section for the game.
Thanks again

Most game threads have specific rules posted for that particular game, if you are unsure of anything ask the game host to clarify for you

Read up first of course, lots of good source material here. Then get in touch with the local folks running the game. Make sure you'll have all the gear you need like proper eyewear and the like. Then at the game ID yourself as new and see if there is a player or group that will take you under their wing hands on.

Some places will have a bleed out rule where you like on the ground when you're hit, others will have medics, and so on. That makes it hard to guess what the flat out rules will be here in this thread.

The most important rule, particularly for a first game is bring your sense of humour and have fun. People will understand you are a noob and hopefully cut you some slack.

With that said however. First impressions matter.

It's OK to be a bit ignorant and ask questions the first few games until you get the hang of it but make an attempt to learn and listen.

The first rule though is FUN (next to safety of course). Whether it's at a milsim game or a quick half hour scrim people go to play have fun and relieve the stress of work.

I am in the same boat as the OP and what you guys posted is helpful. Is it worthwhile or even possible to observe a local game first... to get a sense of how it goes down, what to wear, safety issues etc?

Hard to believe at my age i am a noob at anything but this is defintely the case. Is there a seniors league? lol

Best advice I can give is DO NOT TALK when people are explaining the game. Too people assume they know whats going on all the time. Leading to game issues and a bad time for then and others. Best bet it to listen to everything and always ask that little question never know it could prevent you from making a big mistake.
