Senior Assassin: A Game of Fun and Struggle

Amidst the upcoming AP test season and the end of high school, the PDS class of 2024 is taking a break from the stress through the newly created tradition of participating in Senior Assassin. The game is played in teams of three seniors each, who pair up to “assassinate” targets with water guns to win a sum of money. The “kills” are then recorded as videos and sent to the Instagram account  “pds.senior.assassin.24”. The account is run by the heads of the game, which this year are juniors Cassandra Salas, Sanjana Thakur, and Ana Sofia Ramirez. 

This year’s Senior Assassin game, however, is quite different from last year, as many new rules and modifications have been introduced. The Bounty Board, a new addition to the game this year, is used to pin teams that have failed to assassinate their assigned targets, within ten days of being assigned. A Team that is placed on the board is only taken off once they assassinate a member of their assigned target team. Although intended to be fun and provide more opportunities for players, new rules such as the Bounty Board have created many complications, especially for those running the game. 

“The new rules make the game so chaotic for the people running it,” Thakur detailed. “I don’t even know what’s going on.” Similarly, Ramirez shared, “The seniors need to relax on every aspect of Senior Assassin.”  She urged participants to remember that the game is supposed to be fun. Even though the organizers have faced struggles, seniors like Soumya Bathla are enjoying the game. She reflected on how “Even though our team has had its ups and downs, [the game] is still pretty fun.” 

Although the game has experienced some difficulties, it is still an enjoyable and memorable one for all seniors!
