  • Games people play

    Never heard of this one before. Sounds like fun, although I can't imagine how anyone can do this and still have a life.

      I saw a similar game when I was in college around 1980. The lazy assassins tended to do better, because they weren't out chasing people down. I didn't participate, as it seemed kind of silly, not to mention time consuming.

        Perhaps inspired by this movie.

        What college kid who ever saw it could forget Ursula Andress in her bra with the pistols mounted inside!

          Easily found on YouTube.

            There's something disconcerting about this, that I didn't feel when Assassin was being played when I was college in the early 1980s. With mass killings on high school and college campuses too common and teens violently ganging up on and beating peers as they videotape the beating for nonchalant submission to Youtube, could we be a few short steps from a shadowy game of Assassin that features, instead of a $500 prize and waterguns, a $500,000 prize and real bullets?
