“Senior Assassin” is a popular and sometimes controversial senior class tradition or game that is played in some high schools. The rules and specifics of the game can vary from school to school, and it’s important to note that not all schools allow or endorse this activity due to safety concerns. Before participating, make sure to understand your school’s policies and seek permission if necessary. Here’s a general overview of how “Senior Assassin” is often played:
Objective: The objective of Senior Assassin is for participants to “eliminate” their assigned target(s) using safe and non-harmful means while avoiding being “assassinated” themselves.
- Registration: Typically, seniors who want to participate in Senior Assassin register for the game. There may be an entry fee, which goes toward a prize pool for the winner(s).
- Assigning Targets: A list of participants is created, and each participant is assigned a target or targets. The goal is to eliminate these targets to progress in the game.
- Safe Zones: Safe zones are designated areas where the game cannot be played. These areas often include school property, participants’ homes, and other specified locations. The game should not disrupt classes, school events, or any other activities.
- Eliminating Targets: Players try to eliminate their assigned targets by “tagging” them with a specific item, typically a water gun or a Nerf blaster. The tag must be visible, and it is usually required to be documented as proof of the elimination. Be sure to use non-damaging items and exercise safety.
- Reporting Eliminations: After eliminating a target, the player must provide proof of the elimination, such as a photograph of the tagged target, to the game organizer or a designated referee. The referee confirms the elimination.
- Surviving: Players must also be cautious and avoid being tagged or “assassinated” by their assigned assassin(s). Staying vigilant and aware of one’s surroundings is key to surviving.
- Winning: The game typically continues until only one player or team remains. The last person or team remaining wins the prize pool or a designated prize.
Rules and Guidelines:
- Participants should respect safe zones and avoid any disruptive or harmful behavior on school property.
- The game should not interfere with academic activities or other school events.

Remember that the specifics of Senior Assassin can vary widely between schools, and the game may not be allowed at all in some educational institutions due to safety concerns.
