The coach is the leader and judge. All participants stand in a circle with their eyes closed and one hand held toward the middle with your thumb up. The coach selects one or more killers by turning the participants’ thumbs down. Those who do not get the thumb moved downwards, are not murderers, but potential victims.
At the cry “the killer is loose“, all opens their eyes. Everyone now walks around and look at each other. The murder kills by making eye contact and winking at a victim.
The killed victim must wait a little while (about 5 seconds) and then die so under more or less dramatic circumstances. If the dying person hits someone while dying, they die too – this is also true of the murderer, if he is touched. The dying is not allowed to take more than three steps during the death process.
The point is to reveal who is the murderer.
If another participant believes to have seen the wink he put up his hand and shouts: “I accuse“. The charge may only be used if someone else wants to support the prosecution by saying “I support“.
Until then murder can continue killing and, among other things kill the prosecutor.
When someone accuses and someone else supports the accusation the judge stops the game. On command from the judge reads the cry: “1,2,3, death of the killer.” At 3 the ones accusing points at the suspected murder. Accuser and supporter may not talk together before pointing:
Is they guessed correctly, the murderer die.
If they identifies two different people, the accusor and the supporter dies – even if one one or more of the accused persons are actually murders.
If both points at the same person, but this is not a murderer, both accuser and supporter dies.
If one delays in pointing, the one pointing too late dies.
If there are multiple murderers, a murderer may help to trap a second killer.
If there are more killers than one there is a risk that the murders might kill each other by winking at each other simultaneously.
