IUP Jackal/Assassin

Game hosts (also called umpires or referees) begin by advertising that a game is being set up and instruct potential players to send in their personal details (room #, which residence hall and phone number). Once enough players have signed up, the game host assigns targets to the players. A player is usually told the personal details of their target as collected by the game host. The aim of the game is for players to track down and eliminate their targets until only one player remains. When a player eliminates their target, they get the victim's target(s). If only one player remains, the game is over.

Direct Eliminations:
In a direct elimination, a player uses a water gun to eliminate their target. One must squirt their target with water. One could also use the “Hello my name is…” stickers and write “eliminated” or "the game" on it
Eliminations occur when a target is removed from the game because of the targeter’s actions.

Indirect Iliminations:
When a player plants an object where his/her target will be eliminated by it. I.e. - poisoning andl mail bombing.

Elimination involves:
A) wetting the target with a water gun
B) Poisoning- where someone places a toothpick with the word poison in the food, placing a piece of paper underneath a plate or cup, allowed in any room.
C) mail bombing- sending a letter in the mail (post office) with postage saying that you have been bombed.
D) Stickering – writing “the game” or “eliminated” on a ‘hello my name is…’ sticker

Safe places:
- Residence hall wings, suites, the lobby is free game
- Classrooms
- Bathrooms; no one wants to get caught with their pants down!
