Because I love street theater...
Manhunt is a game of mass hide and seek that is played downtown. Players receive orange armbands to distinguish players from the populace. It's a game much like hide and seek where you stalk your prey like mosquitoes to a bare backside. Although the rules are discussed at the pre-assigned meeting area, they can be seen at our website www.manhunt-montreal.com, along with news for the following game, reports on the last and links to pictures of charging hunters and fleeing prey.
Essentially, you hide from the appointed hunters; if found, you join the hunters.
So far we've managed to exponentially attract hipsters and yuppies, students and professionals, girls and boys. (And let it be said that it is not MANhunt because we are sexist. It is not our fault that somebody came up with a name that sounds very much like a gay cruising technique.) This is not a private event, there is no RSVP. This is a show-up, show-on, show-off type of game. Friends are welcome, enemies are invited and hunted.
Immediately afterwards there is a just-as-successful BBQ/drinkfest . This is for players to unwind and exchange their wild stories of the hunt. It starts at about 7 or 8pm (give or take, sometimes stragglers take awhile to return the meeting point.) The party is hosted by the organizers (LePhil and Adair), who are graciously providing some hot dog calories.
The next game is on Saturday the 20th at 5pm . This game is going to be on the cobble streets of Old Montreal (check up our map at www.manhunt-montreal.com for specifics). We are meeting outside the Centaur Theater.
