Assassination Game Interest Count (in Contests)
July 20 2010 6:06 AM EDT
Object of the Game: Be the last assassin alive.
Cost to play: 20k
Winnings: Winner gets 95% of the pot, i'll keep 5% for transfer costs and setup.
Rules: Everyone who pays to play will be assigned a target by me. The targets go in a large circle, everyone having one person they need to kill, and one person that is after them. When you kill someone they will give you the name of thier target, which then becomes your new target. If the person you kill gives you your name as the target then you have won the prize.
How to score a kill: This is a forum based game. You are stalking your prey waiting for them to make a forum post. If you are the very next person to post after them, and in your post it contains something along the lines of "I assassinate you" then you have killed that person.
If you score a kill: Please CM that person with what thread you killed them in and CM me so I can keep the master record. That person will need to CM you back the name of thier target.
Additional bonus cash: If in your assassination post I deem you to be especially creative or amusing, then you get 5k of the winnings on the spot.
If you are interested in playing this, please just make a quick post here so I can check interest level. If I get over 10 interested folks then I'll officially start it up. Please don't start sending me money yet until I find out if there will be enough people to play.
Assassin Reporting for Duty!

Because it has been asked, the 5% isn't I'm taking 5% of the cut for profits, that's just my estimate of what the transfer fees are gonna cost, if I can transfer the winnings for less than 5% of the total then you'll get more than 95%.
July 20 2010 10:47 AM EDT
1% is xfer fees.
surely more wish to play?
July 21 2010 5:22 AM EDT
Ok I'll toss 1mil on the pot.
plus 20k to play.
winnings are everything - the 5k per good assassination.
July 21 2010 5:23 AM EDT
that's not 20k for me to play, it's 20k per other person playing, it would be unfair for me to get a spot since i'm setting it up.
July 21 2010 6:43 AM EDT
I'm interested, count me in :)
July 21 2010 7:29 AM EDT
I'll support it by playing, though I stand no chance at winning... you do realize that this mini game supports lurkers by a mile. Heavy posters (like me) are easy targets.
July 21 2010 7:57 AM EDT
ah but you see, you can hire people not in the game to protect your posts, by posting right after you.
July 21 2010 7:58 AM EDT
5 more interested and it will be open for applications.
July 21 2010 8:09 AM EDT
I'll throw in 5m to the pot and play.
July 23 2010 11:45 PM EDT
need 3 more interested to start, 6m pot atm thanks to slayer, so entry fees are waived, free to play, 6m to win, however with that much to win i'm going to give 4m to first place and 1m to 2nd and 3rd.
How long does the game last? This can go on for awhile, you know what I mean?
July 23 2010 11:46 PM EDT
I'll give it a try.
July 23 2010 11:48 PM EDT
it lasts as long as it has to.
if it goes over a month with no winner then i may modify the rules.
>=] Alright, I'll join then.
July 23 2010 11:54 PM EDT
one more to launch, get your trolling on.
July 24 2010 12:13 AM EDT
Although I don't like my odds on this and think its just gonna make the forums inactive I'm in :p
July 24 2010 12:17 AM EDT
Alright, I'll add the 10 people here in this thread to the game and the game will start roughly 48 hours from now.
If anyone else wants to join just post it here and you'll be adding to the list.
In 2 days I'll CM everyone thier targets and ~1 hour after I send you your first target you may begin assassinations, I will put what time GMT you can begin.
Any posts that your target made prior to this time GMT will be immune to assassination.
July 24 2010 12:23 AM EDT
I'll give it a try of its still open
July 24 2010 3:01 AM EDT
July 24 2010 5:45 PM EDT
< in, brosefs
i would like to try this game as well, sounds fun! ; )
do we send the money now?
July 25 2010 11:41 PM EDT
I've decided to tell you what time EDT the game starts since that is what is tagged in the forums, make it simple for you, and the game will start in approximately 1 hour, 20 minutes.
The CMs will be going out now, prepare for your targets assassins.
July 25 2010 11:54 PM EDT
CMs are sent.
1 AM EDT the assassinations may commence.
Good Luck to all of the assassins.
I suggest ammending the rules so that if someone assasinates someone else, then that post is immune to killing, or else we'll all wait for everyone else to make a move and it'll drag on forever and start affecting the forums.
July 26 2010 12:03 AM EDT
Lol, that would be highly amusing.
But you're right, combo assassinations would end this game quickly.
You cannot assassinate someone's assassination post.
Don't worry I have other ways to get you to post in mind.
July 26 2010 12:19 AM EDT
Also, everyone remember to name the person you are assassinating in your assassination posts, there can be failed assassination attempts if someone posts while you are typing your kill out.
So after you post an assassination, recheck the forum to see if you made a clean kill and then CM the target and myself to get your next target.
July 26 2010 1:04 AM EDT
Also since it has been asked.
If you make a FS/WTB thread that is CM response only.
Admins are not allowed to reply to it and assassinate you. Well I guess technically they can do what they want.
But for my contest the assassination won't be valid if you intended the post to have no ability to reply to it.
July 26 2010 1:38 AM EDT
Also, thanks to slayer and the pot being so high, creative assassinations will now be worth 20,000. In addition these payments will come out of the money 3rd place would of recieved, so first place will get 4 mil and 2nd will get 1 mil and 3rd will get 1 mil - creative assassination payments.
Having seen this game progress, i think that should there be another rule added.
Whether this rule would be added now or in a new game if this contest is rerun does not matter.
The rule i suggest is that all assassins must make at least one non-assassination post every 24 hours.
What do you think assassins/Wraithlin?
My thoughts on the matter are complicated. As I approach you for polite discourse, I seem hesitant. However, I quickly decide to whip out my machete and decapitate you. I kill you, Nayab.

Sorry, I had a flight today so I was indisposed for awhile.
To answer all the CMs I got:
Yes I found out Meteor got killed, but thanks again.
No, dude you did not initially kill slayer. If you had posted right after his post you would of been golden as he went immune at 8pm.
8PM however was sort of like a game reset, so once you made yourself able to snipe again, you had to look for posts that were timestamped after you picked up your sniper post.
Sorry for the confusion with the rules everyone, sometimes it's tough putting down what I'm thinking on paper and making sure everyone understands it.
If there are any more questions let me know.
August 3 2010 10:24 PM EDT
for the hideaway/safehouse posts.
they, just like the assassination posts are immune to assassination.
August 11 2010 10:40 AM EDT
Zenai was kind enough to add a mil to the pot, which will be given to 2nd place, and a base item of thier choice (even a supporter).
So the new prize layout will be:
1st Place: 4 mil + any base item from Zenai.
2nd Place: 2 mil
3rd Place: 1 mil - bonuses to be given out for good in character posts.
