7:30pm - 10:00pm
Anderson St and Cartwright st

BASIC MANHUNT RULES:
Manhunt is a hide-and-seek variant. The game starts out with one person, known as the MANHUNTER, who is “it”. After the manhunter has been selected, the FUGITIVES have 120 seconds to hide.
If a FUGITIVE is tagged by a MANHUNTER, she or he is BRAINWASHED and forced to join the side of the MANHUNTERS. At the end of the designated time limit, all FUGITIVES who have not been arrested are declared the winners.
Play occurs within predetermined boundaries. If a FUGITIVE exits these boundaries for any reason, she/he joins the MANHUNTERS. Players are identified as being distinct from the general civilian population by means of a HIGHLY-VISIBLE ARMBAND.

Manhunt! Zombie Vs. Zombie Hunters
Mysteriously, people have started acting very strange. Random people throughout society have become wild and crazed. They begin as average day citizens, yet spontaneously they burst into frenzy and chase down unsuspecting victims. No one knows why or how but this epidemic is spreading across this fragile society. Some have begun to use the “Z” word and the increasing panic is nearly as destructive as the plight itself.
From the chaos, a few have risen from this new crisis with solid will and determination. Some used to have everything, and a few had nothing – no matter what – they have nothing to lose now. These bursting phoenixes of vengeance tear through the infected fuelled by fury and angst. These rampaging hunters may be the only hope society can grasp onto, yet gazing into their hellfire eyes, one cannot help to think that they may be as ravenous as what is currently chewing on society.

This Saturday we will play Manhunt Parkour style for many of the members from Parkour BC ( http://pkbc.net/
). Everything is part of the playground and everyone will be encouraged to use everything available. Running up walls, climbing buildings, and jumping over any obstacle is not only allowed, it is preferred. (within the boundaries of the law and personal safety of course)
While many will take on the extreme challenges, we will still be open to all other players like every Manhunt game — everyone is welcome to join in and have a blast.
We will meet at the art gallery at 2:00pm for a warm-up, and then we will go to Stadium Skytrain Station for the games. Call me at 778-228-2441 if you come late and want to know where we are.
Afterwards, we will go for dinner and refreshments.

Pirate vs. Ninja 7 Day Urban Gaming Clash June 4th-10th
The war between Pirates and Ninjas has continued over countless generations. Will this be the final showdown between Pirates and Ninjas? The clash will continue each day, for seven days. Each will be able to show their merit as a true Pirate or Ninja through a series of challenges. These challenges will consist of Manhunt, Ringolevio, Water Gun Fights, Capture the Flag, Dodge Ball, Sardines, Bigger the Better, and more.
We also encourage everyone to wear your best attire to the events. Eye patches, peg legs, black garb, etc. Note of caution: Be careful of running after people with fake knives or swords down the street, you might freak someone out if they think it’s real. Feel free to bring your water guns as well; however, do not shoot anyone who doesn’t want to be shot, and remember that you have to run with the thing.
We would be very grateful for any feedback, suggestions, ideas, or hate-mail. This is an event for the community, so we would like as much participation as possible.
