Cloak & Dagger The Assassins' Guild

About The Assassins' Guild

The Cambridge Assassins' Guild is a student run society which aims to engage players in a game of mock assassination across Cambridge in the spirit of fun and frivolity. It is in no way a society of actual assassins. (Apparently we have to clarify this...)

Games are usually run for the duration of the Michaelmas and Lent terms, with a special May Week game following exams. There are also socials and other events throughout the year to encourage players to meet up for some fun and games without threat of impending death.

The object of the game is to track down and eliminate the other players, while also staying alive yourself.
“Assassination” is carried out with a variety of harmless toys or fake weapons which range from pens labelled as ‘knife’ to water pistols and the popular Nerf weaponry.
Often people come up with more inventive and amusing ways to dispatch their targets.

To find out more, I suggest you read the FAQ, which acts as a general introduction to the game. After this, read the pocket rules for a quick description of how to play and sign up. Reading the main rules and weaponry rules is also a good idea to familiarise yourself with the full rules of the game. Reports of past games available in the archives may also give you some ideas of how to play and read the current game rules.

If you wish to be notified with details of games and events, please join the mailing list or email the Umpire to be added.
If you have any questions, please email and someone will be able to answer your query.

May Week 2022

The Umpire of May Week 2022 is Thomas O'Hare (of Trinity Hall). He can be contacted using if anyone has any queries about rules/weapons/trains/anything.

The theme for May Week 2022 is Mafia, think movies like The Godfather or Bugsy Malone. Don O'Hare, Capofamiglia (the Umpire) will be ensuring an honourable and fair undertaking of business, and his Sottocapo and Consigliere will be checking in on those who defy this.
