It's all part of this "assasination tournament" game called Street Wars. Here's how it goes:
At the start of the game, you receive a manila envelope that contains the following info on your intended target(s):
- A picture
- The home address(es)
- The work address(es)
- The name(s)
- Contact information
Upon receipt of this information, you or your team's mission is to find and "kill" (using a water gun, water balloon or super soaker) your target(s).
Granted, giving my info to strangers who are trying to "kill" me is pretty creepy, and in the wrong hands, could prove quite disatrous and stupid. But assuming all participants in StreetWars are of sound mind and body and are aware that THIS IS JUST A GAME, I'm sure this game is a shitload of fun.
The website has all the information you need: How to sign up (it's over), whom to contact (cool email address, btw), other cities that have played this game (not many), and various media clips.
What cracks me up the most are the game updates. Like this one:
***AGENT "NOCTURNE...THE JACKAL" FROM SLEEPER CELL 107***
***TARGET WAS ASSASSINATED AT APPROXIMATELY 10:35PM AUGUST, 2ND 2005***
AGENTS "THE BARONESS", "COPPERHEAD" AND "NOCTURNE...THE JACKAL" STAKED OUT THE TARGETS HOME ADDRESS. TARGET WAS SEEN LEAVING HOME TO PICK UP A 40OZ AT LOCAL STORE DOWN THE STREET. TARGET WAS ARMED HIDING A WATER GAT IN A PLASTIC BAG. AGENTS COPPERHEAD AND NOCTURNE FOLLOWED THE TARGET ON FOOT AND AS HE ENTERED THE LOCAL STORE. AGENT COPPERHEAD CALLED OUT TARGETS NAME. AS THE TARGET TURNED AROUND HE WAS WASTED BY MULTIPLE HEADSHOTS FROM AGENTS COPPERHEAD AND NOCTURNE.
***WE HAVE ATTACHED PROOF OF OUR KILL - SEE ATTACHED PICTURE***
