Objective: A game where killing is done with the wink of an eye.

Adults, Teens

Game type:
Active. A lot of movement may be required.

6 or more players.

Needed: Paper and pen

Rules: Cut a small piece of paper for each player. Mark one of the sheets of paper with an "X," fold, shuffle, and distribute one to each player. Each secretly looks at his paper. The one who has the "X" is the assassin. Players sit in a circle and careful examine the faces of the other players. When the assassin winks at a player, the player must say, "I've been hit" and drops out of the game. If a player thinks they have caught the assassin in the act of winking, he/she says "I suspect". They are the first suspecter. All playing then pauses and another player must say "I second suspect" in support of the first person who suspects. The second suspecter may not know who the assassin is, but must trust the judgement of the person who first suspects. The first suspecter then names who they think is the assassin. If they are correct, that player wins. If not, then both the first and second suspecter are dead and drop out and play continues. If the assassin is successful in eliminating all but the last player, the assassin wins.

Variation: Someone is chosen to be the "picker". All the other kids line up facing the wall and should close their eyes. The picker goes by and taps each of the kids on the back. He/she taps each of them once but whomever he/she picks as the killer gets tapped twice. Once everyone is tapped they all turn around. Everyone begins shaking hands with one another one at a time in a normal shaking manner. If you are the killer when you shake hands with people you bend your index finger in and sort of poke the palm of the person's hand your shaking. If you feel this, when you shake someone's hand then you go and shake two more hands (normal shakes) and then silently fall to the ground. Like in the games above, a player and suspect and must be seconded by another players before guessing the killer. If wrong, they die and play continues. Eventually the killer may get everyone and then the game is over and a new killer gets picked.
