Ladies and gentlemen, kids old and young, the moment we have all been waiting for has finally arrived! This week, starting April 23rd, is the week of the annual assassin game. The seniors have spent the entire school year training for this very week. Our spoons have been sharpened and our socks newly washed. As we make our way through the hallways, we keep our eyes open, watching for anyone who may be trying to eliminate us. In this game one must have no friends, only enemies. The seniors will need to forget about their academic obligations for the time being, as nothing must cloud their train of focus. This is ASSASSIN.
Seniors, I know suffering from senioritis will be making it hard to focus on anything school related, so I will restate the rules of the game below
- Assassin is only played from 7:35 to 2:30, and can NOT be played in class or during lunch. The game can only be played in between blocks, before, and after school as long as it is between playing hours
- In order to eliminate your target you must either tap them with a spoon and SAY ASSASSIN or throw a clean sock at the target, hitting them before it hits the ground. If the target catches the sock before it hits the ground they are safe for the block.
- If you recognize your assassin before they are able to eliminate you and yell assassin, they cannot eliminate you until after that block.
- Once you eliminate your target, you inherit their target.
And for the students who are not playing assassin, please, for everyone’s safety, stay out of the way.
“Best Regards, and may the odds be ever in your favor,” said Effie Trinket.
