Welcome back and congratulations on finishing the year!

May Week 2024 Game

As usual, the May Week game is a little different from the main game, read about the differences here. A quick summary of some major changes:

The theme of this term's game is Mafia:

Don O'Hare, aka Thomas O'Hare (of University of Leeds) has returned to the city following his dismissal by Pyrite (Henry London) in 2022. The city he has returned to has been divided between 3 Mafias: The Family, The Vengeance Pact, and The Crazy 88.

All players will be assigned to one of the mafias and are competing to be top of that mafia by the end of the week. The top players in each mafia will make it to a final duel to decide which mafia controls the city, and which player will unite the mafias as a Master Assassin!

About Us

The Cambridge Assassins' Guild is a student-run society which organises termly live-action games in which players track down and eliminate each other with a variety of harmless (and often comically inventive) weapons. These weapons range from the quintessential pen labelled 'knife' to stuffed attack animals, water pistols and foam dart blasters. 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. We also hold friendly socials and varsity matches against other guilds across the country.

To get started, we suggest you read the FAQ for a general overview of the game, then read the pocket rules. Reading the main rules and weaponry rules at some point is also a good idea. If you want to see how a game usually runs, you can check out the reports from past games in the archives.

If you have any questions, please email the umpires at assassins-umpire@srcf.net and we'll be happy to help you out.

Happy Hunting!

Varsity 2024

On February 10th 2024, we played against Oxford. The result was 3-1 to Oxford. We won One in the Chamber, and lost Commanders, Team Deathmatch and Capture the Flag. Casual duels were fought afterwards, and much fun was had by all.
