Assassination is a game that is played while sitting in a circle. It can be played with any number of participants with about 10 or more.


You don't need any equipment for this game.


All players are sitting in a circle, except one player (the detective), who leaves the room. From the other players, a killer is selected; of course, the detective should not know who the killer is.

The detective reenters the room and stands in the center of the circle. The killer then tries to kill the other players without arousing suspicion of the detective. He can kill someone by looking at someone and winking his eyes. The killed person then dies (making sounds, falling over, etc.).

The detective has to identify the killer as soon as possible, while the killer has to kill as many people as possible without being detected by the detective. Of course, the detective may not just guess at random, but only has 1 or 2 tries.


  • You can also try the game without a detective; everybody tries not to get killed by the killer.
  • The game can also be played not while sitting, but while moving around the room.
  • killer clown: The killer is a clown, his victims laugh while dying.
