As is the Wayne Hills tradition, the end of senior year marks the beginning of the amazingly awesome fun game, known as Senior Assassins, that started Monday, May 21.

The class of 2018 is obsessed with the stalkerish, suspenseful competition of paranoia and dramatic twists and turns captivating even those across other grades.

Simply put, each participating senior picks a partner, and together each pair search and destroy their assigned opposition (another pair of seniors) by spraying them with a water gun. There is no mercy: if a competitor is unable to eliminate their target after each round, they themselves are out of the competition. After “assassinating” a pair, you and your partner are assigned to their target. Each team does not know who is after them, which adds to the constant exhilaration of the game.

“This is the most fun I’ve ever had in high school. It makes me feel so alive,” said an anonymous senior.

There are certain instances where seniors are unable to be eliminated–school grounds are off-limits, as well as being inside of a building or home. Seniors are also not allowed to spray each other if they are in a moving vehicle, but parked cars are fair game.

Each player pays five dollars to compete, contributing to a pool that gets divided among the winning team and the team with the most eliminations. So far, seniors say that the volume of eliminations has been high–13 pairs were eliminated after less than 24 hours.

“We’re in it to win it,” an anonymous senior claimed.

“It’s a game of strategy and stealth more than anything,” added their anonymous partner. “I am a stealthy ninja.”
