What is Assassins?

Assassins is a live action game of simulated murder, run by the Guild. During the game each player is given contracts to `kill' the other players. When you do so you get the price currently on that players head. The person with the most money at the end of the game is the winner. You may have played a game similar to this, called Killer. Steve Jackson Games publishes a set of rules under this title. Most games of Killer last a short time, with all the players restricted to a central area. Assassins is typically played for a period of ten weeks, and kills can be made wherever an assassin can find his or her target. (Although, since the game is run for students of the University of Wollongong, most of the kills will be made on campus.) If you're a UoW student, and this sounds like fun, then e-mail the Assassins moderator and ask to join in.
