I saw the post in the other thread regarding LARPing, and decided to one-up it.
How about something less dorky and more fun? How about a PAX-wide game of Assassins
, modified for a conference center full of games and gamers?
The modified rules are as follows:
- Open season begins when the doors open on Day 1, and runs 24 hours/day until PAX closes. Action should be relatively fast, as we want to have a Master Assassin by Day 3.
- One exception to the previous rule is for games & tournaments. You may not assassinate a player while they are engaged in a game or tournament. This is incentive to play games damn near nonstop all through PAX, and to watch your back closely when making a Pocky & Bawls run.
- Kills are made by taking your target's watch
). Every player prints out the PDF in color, at 8.5x11, cuts it out, and wears it on the outside of their clothing
, in a grabbable area. It's big, but that's so assassins can grab it without fondling you too heavily (unless that's part of their plan to get it).
. We don't want someone getting sent to jail for menacing passers-by with a rubber band gatling. Indoors means the Mydenbauer. Outdoors is all the way outdoors
. Diving for the door to avoid assassination won't save you.
- Should disputes arise as to 'who killed whom first', they target may appeal, and the dispute will be settled by a game of the assassin's choice, limited by availability. The appeal game goes for one round (if applicable, if not, one game), and the results are final and merciless. I don't care if a horde of chihuahuas grabbed your nards and made you let go of e. honda's turbo button. You lose, you lose.
