First to Last, Win the Cash

Who will win the $306 in the rising game Assassin?

Over 152 students around Park Hill South started out in the game assassin, with only 41 students left in the game still competing for the $306.

Everyone has different tasks and strategies to get there target out, but it depends on who you ask.

Ryan Welty, senior said, “I found out about their work schedule, when they get off work and then found out where there car is. I then camped out next to their car and waited for them to get off work and then I assassinated them.”

Some people have to work to get their target and other’s targets are just given to them and offer to get out like.

Nathan Ellenberger, senior said, “I texted her friends to see where she lives. I then followed her home twice. She partially let me get her in the end but then I waited outside her house.”

Some people work hard and others don’t. Some participants take this game seriously to win it all.

Adam Blasczyk, senior said, “I found her closest friends on the first day. Then I asked what she did after school to her friends. Then what time she got home each day. Last I assassinated her.”

Some people don’t know who to ask for help and it backfires, but some just know the right resources. Trust and good friendships make for the best success.

Welty said, “I had an idea for who worked at Nick and Jakes to get Sarah Russ out, and same for Savannah Beck at Culver’s. I have known Madi Blinzler for a long time and knew she worked at Nick and Jake’s, so I just had her look at the list for when Russ got off and assassinated her.”

Like Welty, some know the resources to get people out but unfortunately others don’t know how to get there target, so you never know.

Ellenberger said, “I just asked whoever and if they weren’t trustworthy then oh well.”

You have to trust people like Ellenberger said, but you can’t always trust everyone, you have to pick your best people to pick.

Blasczyk said, “You can’t trust everyone but you just need to ask people for help. You never really know who is trustworthy but you have to have hope. Then you just hope for the best.”

Some like alliances and others don’t, but no matter what you can’t do anything about bad coordination.

Welty said, “Sure they can be allowed, but they are pointless because Donna Shahbazi, coordinator of Assassin, alphabetize the names. I don’t have any alliances because they are pointless.”

Some people want to have alliances because they know they can trust their close friends but others don’t because they can’t trust anyone.

Ellenberger said, “I think they should be fine because you are putting your trust in your allies.”

Some know that no matter how much the rules are to say no alliances if there was a rule like that, people would still do it. It is just like speeding or drugs, people still do it.

Blasczyk said, “If you make an alliance, on or off the field, you are putting your information and the fate of the game into someone else. I personally think no, but there is no way to control if people do it. Think about it; drugs are illegal but people still do them.”

But through thick and thin, wet and dry, someone will be on top and have the King Assassin title and $306 to take home. Is it worth all the paranoia or is it not? Guess it just depends on who you ask.
