It's BACK!!! AssassinCon at BGG.Spring 2018


by




Welcome to AssassinCon at BGG.Spring 2018, the time each year when all the cloaks and daggers gather to attend seminars on practical invisibility and browse the latest in ninja hoods. But the real action is in the games, sneaking silently though the shadowed corridors. Pursue as you are pursued! Eliminate your opponents! In this game, skill and strategy mean the difference between success and a truly heinous headache. Good luck! And may the best Assassin win!

How do I play:

Just like in the board game you are trying to find and eliminate your target without getting eliminated yourself. All of the AssassinCon players will have a special ribbon attached to their BGG Badge. This will assist in identifying other players. You will still need to find your specific target.

To eliminate your target you must have the target sign your target card. This is now your trophy and cannot be taken from you, even if you are eliminated later.

The eliminated player then gives you the target card they are pursuing. This is now your new target.

You must return to the Mayday Games booth to have your trophies recorded before the game ends. You can return anytime during exhibit hall hours to have your trophies recorded.

Please remember to always be respectful of the other players and BGG.CON attendees. This is an opportunity to meet other gamers and to have fun.

The Assassin with the most trophies at the end will be given the title of Master Assassin.

Prizes:

Master Assassin $100.00
2nd Place $75.00
3rd Place $50.00
** All ties will be broken by the Date and Time of the earliest trophy recorded at Mayday Games **


Important Dates and Times:

Registration ends: Tuesday May 22, 2018 at Midnight!
Initial Target Assignments: Friday, May 25, 2018 from Noon - 6pm at Mayday Games Booth
Game Starts: Friday, May 25, 2018 at 6:00 PM
Game Ends: Sunday, May 27, 2018 at 12:00 PM
Master Assassin Announced: Sunday May 27, 2018 at 1pm at Mayday Games Booth

Our flight lands at 610pm, and my son and I desperately wanted to get on this last year. Any chance we can somehow pick up our target from someone when we get there around 645?

We haven’t sent out any info. Your packets will be available on Friday at the Mayday booth. I will check and respond to you to verify your entry later today when I’m in front of a larger computer.

Thank you Mayday games for putting on Assassin Con. I couldn't find my target, but was faithfully assassinated during the wits & wagers tournament !

Will join again next con!

Apparently wearing a T-Shirt with your Username printed on the back is a good way to start about 5 minutes after the game starts!

Next time, I'll be better prepared. Thank you Mayday for putting this on!

First place had 7 kills.
Second had 5 kills.
Third was won on a tiebreak at three if I remember right. It could have been four.

Last year the winner had three and second had two.
Very good chance we will do this again next year. We had 69-70 participants. We also plan on doing it for the fall con.

It was four for third place - my son lost the tiebreak - I've heard plenty about it! He had a blast, especially when he got me as a target.

Clearly I need more training at being an Assassin. My Stealth abilities lack, as does my Survivability.

It was a lot of fun. Thanks Mayday!

I got assassinated immediately after crossing the main floor and before opening my envelope.

It was funny. I may do it again next year.

Two kills. One in the parking lot, returning from a lunch out, because the target was wearing a shirt with his username on the back (see above). I dispatched minions to find the second target.

I was killed by a ~11 y.o. boy at Wits & Wagers after being spotted by his mom.

That would've been me you killed.

All good though. I'll have a shirt made with my alternate handle next time around!

Yeah, this has some serious advantages for families. They can make it a team game in a really hardcore way.
