Winter Camp Murder
This game of life and death will test a player's ingenuity and skill. Each player spends 48 hours trying to avoid being killed; at the same time, he strives to carry out the instructions assigned by the computer. As one or more people will probably be trying to kill him, he must be constantly alert. Realistic role playing will make the game most successful. The game is divided into four phases, detailed below.
During this phase, the players answer several questions posed by the computer. The computer then evaluates this data and assigns each player a set of instructions. The instructions are based on the answers given by the players.
Once all players have received their instructions, the game begins. All instructions must be carried out by 12:00 noon on December 30. Most of the instructions are self-explanatory, but a few words may help to explain:
- Wills must be posted as directed.
- Arguments must be seen by at least one witness.
- Assaults involve striking the victim in a non-lethal area, or with a non-lethal item. They do not involve actual harm to their victim.
- Letters must reach the Security Officer as ordered.
- Suicide notes must precede the suicide.
- Conspirators should work together.
- Murders are performed ONLY when ordered by the computer.
- All murders should leave no doubt of the victim's death.
- Murders should not involve real damage to the victim or his property
- The only time one can commit a murder without instructions is if his own life is in danger.
- Dead men tell no tales. Victims are not allowed to talk about their death or any other events in the Game.
The Security Officer should investigate all crimes. The Security Officer and his deputies can make arrests until 4:00 p.m. December 30. All those arrested are free on bail.
Trials are held in accordance with standard judicial practice. The Security Officer serves as prosecutor or can appoint one. The Judge appoints a four member jury. They must be impartial, and select their own foreman. Defendants are entitled to an attorney.
