StreetWars Answered

Trigger happy gamers have organized, broken through the digital/analog divide, and have begun to play "real" games!

Contestants in the StreetWars tournament dart through New York's alleyways with water guns in their hands. They're on a three week long, 24/7 assassination mission where the winner gets $500, the title of top squirter in town, and if all goes to plan, stays dry.

Shadowy World of Squirt-Gun Assassins
The New York Times


 I'm to young to play.

 cool nothing ever happens in uk

"It's all fun and games untill someone gets mugged" lol
Top Squirter in town hmmmm lol

In all seriousness this sounds really awesome !! I would love to do this !! although not too keen on the shadowy alleys part being raped by hobo's aint my thing..

lol carry a water noodle for self defense XD

your water gun is no match for my bathing suit! shoot all you want! its designed to get wet! MUHAHAHa

lol .45 super soaker "I'm sure you're wondering how many streams I fired, five or six. Well, to be honest I've lost count too.... so I must ask you... Are you feelin' lucky punk? XD

Harry Callahan: I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

noodle, that's priceless. LoL

the most powerful melee weapon the world has ever known

sorry lighsabers aren't (please don't kill me S.W fans

Are X-ray goggles allowed? xD This sounds awesome. A true man's dream... LOL YEAH RIGHT! Mine would be headshotting people from a skyscraper with a paintball gun... This is still cool though.

dear god this is amazing

Darn! I wish i could go. Nothing ever happens in this city

At least you can hang about on Instructables...

We should have a water gun fight at ibles HQ!

Yeah, that would be fun! But... Eric wouldn't be happy about his whole place dripping wet with water...

God, this would be so fun.

That looks like fun! :-D

ummm... this is just like senior assinations in highschool...

lol we were forming teams in the winter.... the av club joined ours..... we had cameras XD

Yea it seems like it. I know my high school played assassin.

my sister played it a while back...
and some players stole my stuff...

that was on CSI or something, where one person got mad because the person tricked him with a fake acting audition and he shot them with a real gun.

Actually, I think he shot him with a cap gun but the guy died from the fumes.

it was probably blanks. They still release the mas amounts of gas when discharged. If you put the end of the gun against your head the hot expanding gases from the discharge can seriously hurt you.

Apparently the people who play this are not real New Yorkers, we are paranoid enough without being stalked. I would not be surprised to find real casualties.

this sound pretty cool there is a video game version of this its called the ship and its pretty much the same objective
