Asylum

When: Saturday, August 20th, 4-6pm

Where: Calhoun Square

In this game of recreational espionage, one team orchestrates a wild goose chase designed to whisk a Defector away from the watchful eyes of their rivals. The surveillance team tries to track the Defector and photograph them making contact with the enemy. Then, the teams switch roles and do it all again.

Both rounds of this fast-paced game should conclude in under two hours, then dinner. Everything from team formation to planning will happen on-site, no prep required.
