Besides many new Erasmus students who arrive in Brno every autumn, many Mafia families come there as well only to have a rough fight over control of the city.
The game called Assassin Brno is inspired by the gangsters from the 30s, and it takes us to the Geologica Siciliana group. It is a group which controls almost all the criminal neighbourhoods in Brno and its surroundings. The aim of the game is to find the enemies and cut their throats with toothbrushes when they least expect it.
Assassin, that is regular meetings of the dons, poker tournaments, blackmailing of the politicians or drug trafficking, and most important of all – constant paranoia. When you are lucky enough to survive until the next day, you know you can’t rest of your laurels. 24 hours a day, seven days a week, dozens of murderers are going after you. They know both what you look like and what your name is, and thanks to those things it is probable that they have already found out your timetable, hobbies, and most likely also where you live and who you’re dating.
“Murdering with a toothbrush” may sound like a dental hygiene advertisement, but it in fact describes perfectly what the whole thing is about – fun. You won’t be bored.
Despite the fact that the game is primarily for those who spend most of the week in Brno, sometimes even those Brno students who are currently on their Erasmus abroad take part, though in a slightly changed way. The organisers sometimes include special tasks for them. For example, in one of the previous years the special task was to find and murder (symbolically) a Brno student who was spending her Erasmus in Spain. The players with many friends worldwide have a great advantage in the abroad murdering.
One of our Board members, Marko Barvirčák, previously took part in the game and recommends it: „You get to meet new people and have a lot of fun. The relationship between the victim and the murderer can be truly special. I have met my best friend while murdering her.”
The Registration for the game already running and will be open until the Wednesday (October 8th, 2014). The game itself is going to start about two weeks later.
