This year’s campus-wide game of Assassin organized by moderators Will Burford ’16 and Sid Kucheria ’16 will begin Tuesday at 8 a.m.
Students who are participating in the fifth annual game will use the HW Assassin app, available for both iOS and Android. So far, 441 students have signed up to participate in this year’s game.
After the targets are assigned on the app, the player’s goal is to assassinate your given target. In order to eliminate a target, the player must sneak up behind his or her target and say “bang” while pointing their hand at their target’s back. Safe zones include the library and in-session classrooms.
Participants record and submit their “kills” with the app in order to continually update the game. When a player is eliminated, he or she must confirm the kill so that his or her killer can receive their new target.
Players can also view other kill videos, see the location of kills and find out who the top players are on the app. The game will finish when only one player is left.
