A uni wide game of assassin broke out across UC on 29 March, with 45 people competing against each other for the chance of winning two tickets to the sold out Groovin the Moo festival.
The rules were are as follows:
Each player wears a lanyard around their neck that contains a photo of them.
This photo represents their life, and the aim of the game is to ‘kill’ as many other competitors as possible by stealing their photos off their lanyard.
You cannot kill inside tutorial or lecture rooms, labs, library or wherever learning is occurring.
You can only kill or be killed within the game zone – the zone is based on the centre of campus, once you cross a road, you are out of the zone
Once you die, you give your killer your photo, plus the photos of the victims you’ve ‘killed’. The last person alive, or the person with the most kills by 3pm was crowned the winner.
Each players had different strategies. Some chose to work in groups while others decided to go solo.
It was an intense day for all involved filled with stress and anxiety, but was nevertheless a lot of fun.
Nathan was the victor of the day, claiming 20 lives while second and third place had 14 and nine kills respectively.
Two lucky door prize winners were also awarded with a double pass to GTM as well.
