UEA Assassins Society
If you want to kill your friends for fame and fortune, then the Assassins society is for you! We run week-long games every month, where the aim is to hunt down other members of the society and "eliminate" them. In addition to this, we run minigames on Saturday afternoons (weather permitting), along with occasional socials.
Almost anything can be used as a lethal weapon! Nerf guns are our most common weapons of choice, but kills have previously been made with light-sabers, spatulas, pens and a banana, amongst other things. The only restrictions are that your weapons must not actually hurt anyone, and they must not make a mess, so no BB guns, and no water pistols!
Our week-long games include the likes of the classic Team Deathmatch, the momentum-based Warlords (your victims join your team on the following day), the inevitable Zombie Apocalypse, and the nail-biting Guild game. In these games, you can typically expect to join back in on the next day if you die, and you can identify the other players by looking for a green or yellow armband on their arm. However, in the Guild game no armbands are worn, and you are instead given two things: photos of your targets, and their timetables. Watch your back!
Our minigames take a more fast-paced form than the week-long games. We get out our bigger guns (and often lend them to newer members if we think you're outgunned) before engaging in call-of-duty-style nerf wars in Earlham Park or Outside the Ziggurats for an hour or two. We often head to the pub afterwards, and this is a great opportunity to properly meet and make friends with your fellow assassins!
Every year, the Assassins societies from around the UK meet up for a bumper session of minigames over a weekend. We get to hang out with other large guilds such as Sheffield, York and Durham, check out the host city and have a lot of fun! Last year, we hosted. This year, we're going to Durham and you can bet that it's going to be a fantastic time!
