2024 Senior assassin


Senior assassin is a high school tradition. It has recently become extremely popular amongst Gen Z. For those that don’t know, here’s how it works: 

The game is for seniors only

Players play in teams of two

It costs $20 per team to play

All money is split by the winning team

Targets are direct messaged on instagram (@DHSSeniorAssassin2024) each Sunday before the next round begins, completely randomized

You are only allowed normal water guns (no automatics, splatball, etc.)

To be eliminated, you have to be hit with water by your opponent’s water gun, on video

Players can wear (not hold) a pool floaty for immunity, but this only applies during even hours, 2:00, 4:00, and so on.

Targets are not allowed to be assassinated inside the school, during sports (games and practice), at place of work (for both the target and or opponent), and place of worship

Opponents are not allowed inside their targets house unless allowed

In order for you and your partner to advance to the next round, both targets must be eliminated In order to confirm elimination, there must be a clear video of proof

If one partner gets out, but both of your targets have been eliminated, both partners are allowed to advance to the next round
