Assassin is what is know as "lifestyle-invading" which means you play it over a course of days or weeks while you go about your regular daily activities - with no break. You can hunt or be hunted as any hour of the day or night - every player is both a stalker and a stalkee. You play on your own - there are no teams, and players aren't in the same location with other players at any time - except for the moment of assassination. It's often played on school campuses - Curtis Sittenfeld details a bout of Assassin in her novel Prep. At the start of the game (which is usually a predetermined time announced by e-mail), you will receive, via e-mail, a photograph and some vital details (home address, work address) of your prey. Someone else will receive your information. Players must "assassinate" their prey -either by tagging them, shooting them with a water gun, or simply cornering them - while trying to avoid the same. You'll become wildly paranoid. It is not a game for the faint of heart.Now how can you not want to play that. The books goes into details about how you may want to set up safe zones where it is not allowed to get someone, bathrooms, inside work spaces, and in church are probably good boundaries to set. I don't think it would be a good idea to be fired or thrown out of church cause someone comes in and squirts you with a water gun, though It may be a little fun to see how others react. One someone is out of the game they have to hand their target over to the person who took them out. The winner is either the last one standing or if there is a time limit it's everyone who's left.
