Senior Travis Brock eliminates senior Kylee Keahon in the popular ‘senior assasin’ game.

With the year quickly wrapping up, what better way for seniors to celebrate than a school-wide game? That game is Senior Assassin, which was put together by a few students looking to add some extra school spirit to their last days in high school. With an entrance fee of just three dollars, the game involves being assigned to and hopefully finding someone each week to eventually win the game if you can find the most people.

The game is run by an app called Splashin, which will coordinate and keep track of the game. When someone is assigned to their target, the app will show their location, making the game possible. Senior Ashley Hefflin emphasized, “It takes place outside of school.” This combined with a ban on finding people at their workplace or home is designed to keep the game as non-intrusive as possible.

Senior Wyatt Keith, who is a contestant, explained why he is playing, saying, “All my friends are doing it, and it sounds like a fun time.” It’s the perfect opportunity to connect with friends before high school ends and everyone goes off in their own direction. Keith is also very confident in his odds saying, “I’m gonna win, it’s gonna be a fun fight but no one stands a chance [against me].” Keith was the first player to be eliminated, mere hours after the game began.

Senior Assassin is a perfect opportunity to connect with friends before the end of high school and just have a good time. With a pretty good prize and decent odds of winning, combined with a low entrance fee, it should convince many people to play. All seniors should at least look into participating as a good way to conclude their high school years.

Hi, I’m Charlie, the most average writer ever. I'm a junior, but this is my first year writing for The Falconer as part of journalism I. I run cross country and track, even though I'm not very good. My greatest skill is being kinda good with computers, in fact I built mine myself. My hobbies include academically enriching activities such as YouTube shorts and video games. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read about me.
