Note: Please check in by 7pm, however the Tournament will start at 7:20 after the Spymasters have had time to create their clues. Tournament should be done around 8pm. Standard version of Codenames will be played for fun once the Tournament is concluded.
In the Codenames Live Action variant, each player is one of the words and is trying to identify which of the words/players are Red Agents and which are Blue Agents, while avoiding the assassin. It is no longer a team game, every player is acting alone. The player who identifies the most agents correctly (from both sides) wins.
THE GAME When the game starts, the first clue will be given, shouted out and/or displayed somehow. An additional clue will be given every 30-60 seconds, alternating between Red and Blue. Players will mingle trying to identify members of the Red and Blue spy teams based on the clues given. Number of clues will depend on total particpants, with a maximum of four clues per team in a 25 player game. After all clues have been given and players will have one final minute to complete their spy lists. Players may not guess more than the actual number of Red and Blue spies.
SCORING: The Assassin with be revealed first. Anyone who placed the Assassin on either the Red or Blue team automatically scores zero for the round. Everyone still left in the game now scores 1 point for each agent of either colour they correctly identified.
WINNER: We will play three rounds. The highest cumulative score will be the winner.
PRIZES: Prizes will include copy of Codenames game, other prized still TBD.
