You know what I've always felt Christmas eve lacks?
Paranoia and a sense of impending doom.
The "party game" I just picked up should do the trick.
Each player gets a Nerf gun, the name of a target and the location in the house where they have to shoot them at some point over the course of the evening.
Nothing says "Christmas" like an assassination contract.

.....yes. I have been playing Hitman too long.
  • Listening to: Booming Orchestral Scores
  • Reading: Assorted comics.
  • Watching: TV
  • Playing: Hitman: Absolution
  • Eating: Rice.
  • Drinking: Water.

Ooh-hoo-hoo, brilliant.

I do believe I'm getting a Nerf-styled (generic, most likely) gun for Chanukwanzmas. I'ma remember this idea.

There should be a Hitman: Absolution DLC where you cna buy a Santa outfit for Agent 47.

It would be no more ridiculous than the secret nun assassins with rocket launchers.

JJ, Are you alternate earth me? I just got home from shopping with a dozen Nerf cannon for Monday evenings pseudo-Christmas themed Paranoia session. In which the players shall be "enticed" to obliterate each-other (and a variety of "Reasons for the Season").

I'd nerf-blast you and your entire family, suit-only, and leave without anyone ever knowing that I was even there. It'd be a nerf massacre. Nerf everywhere.

Better yet, instead of a Nerf gun, why not use water guns. Especially good for those living in the frigid mid-western states.

Oh, man. We used to play something like this at the MTC. But we used pens, rather than Nerf guns. And the games could go on for days.

Good times.

Sounds like fun. Can you still dress up as other people to get closer to the target.

Sure beats the hell out of the game we're playing in the US called "The Blame Game". And its the NRA's turn.

Can I move in with you, Phil? My doctor says I need daily amounts of common sense, good judgement, and actual logic. The country I'm in is lacking that these days and my brain is suffering from malnutrition.

It's either that or start my own country on the moon. The only downside is that I'd get Newt Gingrinch as a neighbor eventually. -_-

Aaah, a good old game of "Assassin". They were standard on the local game cons when i was young. Er. Salt in sodas, mustard under snacks, "electrified"chairs, "mined" doors, rubber knifes and a fantastic dose of paranoia.... aaah, good times, good times. :)
