|Comics featuring their RAs explain the rules of the game to residents|
Well, not everyone, but about one third of the residents in Tilton and Haskell signed up to play my first social program of the semester: Assassins. Roughly 100 Jumbos, including the RAs, are checking their backs at every turn now that the game has begun.
The RAs are playing a separate game with one another exclusively, making for three distinct pools: Haskell residents (41), Tilton residents (47), and RAs (8). So I'm running around campus with an extra pair of socks, on the lookout for any RA on my duty team.
Already, there have been a few interesting developments. One RA tried to assassinate her target before the game officially started, revealing her secret assignment prematurely. In another instance, two residents independently scored kills only minutes before being eliminated themselves. I've been awarding (trivial) "achievements" for such accomplishments (e.g. "Premature Assassination" and "Karma Kings" above). Follow the feed online to keep up with our game.
For those playing, good luck. And, to reference Hitchhiker's Guide: Don't panic, and always carry a towel!
