Assassins

  • Ass

Description

The Durham University Assassins’ Society is one of the most active Assassins Societies in the world. We run at least one full time game in each term and have regular socials and shorter games all through the year.

Our games are extremely varied. Longgames involve members of the society hunting and killing each other across Durham using a variety of safe 'weaponry'. In widegames we meet up in a park and play shorter games such as 'Escort the VIP' and 'Zombies'. We also take part in annual 'Varsity' games with similar societies across the country.

We meet up for larger parties in conjunction with other societies, and we also run a variety of fun activities to try and sort the wolves from the sheep.

So if you think you can cope with pressure, if you think you have the skill and speed of thought necessary to spot a hunter as they weave through a crowd of innocents, and if you think you can cope with your mates casting scornful glances at you as you polish your dart guns, then sign up and show us what you're made of! 

We aim:

  • To run a variety of mock combat games for the enjoyment of all members.
  • To run a variety of social events for the enjoyment of all members.
  • To liaise with similar groups, especially at other universities, with a view to participating in joint events.
  • To support and encourage people interested in such games.
