Rules

Specific Details and Rules:

Players should start at random locations around the battle area. When the battle starts, Players stalk each other around the battlefield looking for opponents. When an enemy is found, there are two options of killing the enemy: Backstab or Execution. To Backstab, one must hit the enemy in the back. If one is hit anywhere else on the body, it can be disregarded unless one is hit in the back or legs. If a Player is hit in the back, he/she dies on the spot and the Player who hit them is awarded one point. To perform an Execution, one must shoot an enemy in the legs first. If a Player is hit in the legs, they must immediately fall to their knees and start counting to 10 at a normal pace. A Player on their knees is a sitting duck. If a sitting duck is shot in the back of the head (this is why you use pistol blasters. I once played against a Monster...), they are dead and the Player who hit them in the back of the head is awarded 2 points. If the kneeling Player manages to count to 10, they can get up and run. Also, if Player 1 shoots player 2 in the leg, Player 2 must fall down and start counting. However, if Player 3 can come over and shoot Player 2 in the head before Player 1 can, Player 3 will get the points, not Player 1. The game ends when every Player except one is eliminated. The Player who remains is awarded an extra two points for surviving. At the end of the battle, everyone calculates their total points and whoever has the most points wins.
