Now, Im a little confused. At first I thought that this was a great idea.
What fun you could have pretending to be an assasin and 'killing' your target by shooting them with a water pistol! You could be James Bond.
Your attack could happen at any time, and at any place..

The site gives out your phone number, email address, home address and even your work address, so that your assasin-to-be can find you wherever you are! eek

Which then made me wonder what would happen if a neightbour spotted a man holding what appeared to be a weapon, lurking in the shadows of a garden?
The police would get called, believing incorrectly that the man is armed, not only wasting police time, but also running the risk of shooting the man.

By there way, theres one in London between 4/7 and 25/7 ubbrollsmile

Thoughts? Good idea? Bad idea?

Sounds like Heaven for ID thieves and burglars looking for unoccupied houses to do over during office hours



Except the organisers have everyones names and address, coupled with who has been assigned to who.
So if anyone did try anything, their victim reports it to the site, the site give the police the name and address of the person who was assigned to the victim, and then the police go round and pick them up.

What I was thining, is that, after watching the videos on the main site, people are already doing illegal things to get access to their targets (breaking in to someones house and waiting 4 hours for them to return is just plain wrong!)
Then againm, I suppose if you sign up to this game, you know what you are letting yourself in for, so wont press charges against your "assassin" anyways.
Whether the police take up civil action is another thing though, and I dont think the defence of "Its a game" is going to stand up very well in court shrug

Posted:We had something similar in my high school until a would-be target ran down an alley to avoid getting hit by a drive-by and was accidentally struck by another random motorist. Er.... it's now an illegal game in my hometown, especially considering it involved a form of underage gambling, but I hear it still goes on.

My, I'd much prefer to play Pie Assasins, but my birthday hasn't fallen on an appropriate day, so I can't pie anyone yet. Darn my luck.

the best way to play that would be;

1. unemployed (no work place to attend)
2. get a new sim for your phone, tell your family that you're going on holiday for a few weeks or something
3. live in your car for three weeks (never at home)

damn, i'd so love that game.



This is absolutely true. My friends played in college and I specifically didn't play because I knew I'd get too obsessive and miss classes and sleep in ventillation ducts.

One of my funnier moments was trying to motivate him to get his first target. I remember yelling into a university phone "When I get home she'd better be dead, I don't care if you have to shoot her or stab her or whatever!"... then I turned around and got a bunch of very strange looks from the folks in the hallway.

smile

But yes, I'm sure the most obsessive will win. Sounds like an absolute nightmare to me. In a fun way. biggrin


Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Posted:I so wish I was still at uni... *cries*

Dunno if I'd want to play in the wide world... I was all enthused and then realised how vulnerable I would be for ID theft, plain burgulary, etc...
