Thanks to everyone who came out. We had a solid crew of about 40 when the night started. It was awesome seeing the returning faces, it feels like we've got a few solid regulars. But it was also badass how many damned NEWBIES there were! It was seriously like 3/4 people who hadn't played.
Shit was super tight. I think everyone had a good time. All I can say is thanks for coming. Seriously. Thats all I'm gonna write for now. Everyones got their own stories to take away from the night. Click on the image above to go to my limited Flickr slideshow of the evening. Theres a few anecdotes there, as well as some links to more photos from the night.
Everyone who gave me their email is on the BOND mailing list, so youll know about the next game. If you didn't gimme your contact info, but made it here, PLEASE EMAIL ME! Planning for next months game is in the works, don't miss out.

If you've played the game with us before... you can skip this bullshit and go straight to the maps!
BOND is an extremely intense, adrenaline pumping, action packed, fright filled take on the classic kids game “hide n seek”. The group of players starts at a predetermined meeting point. The objective is for the runners to get from Point A to Point B under the time limit, without being tagged. Heres the twist... the chasers are driving cars.
Each car starts with a pair of chasers; the driver and the passenger. The drivers function is obvious, use the cars speed to easily chase down the runners. The passenger's duty is to hop out and tag them. When you are tagged, you get into the car and become a chaser as well. If the chaser car is good, pretty soon it will be filled to capacity. The next person they see is gonna be chased down by 5 people at a time.
It gets intense. As a runner, you've got to cover about a mile of ground. As you will see on the maps, were playing in mostly residential neighborhoods. Everything is fair game except backyards and hopping fences. Its only fun if the cars have a chance to spot you. Basically, stay on the roads.
Thats pretty much the gist of it. The rules will be covered extensively on the night of the run. Theres only one major rule everyone needs to know before hand.
THERE IS NO ALCOHOL ALLOWED.
This should be obvious as there is a heavy and required element of driving involved in the game. We have been hassled by the cops before, but since no one was drinking, they actually let us continue playing. The game itself arouses suspicion in home-owners as well (30 kids running around in black ninja masks, being rundown by screeching tires... cmon). Theres a good chance people may even call the cops. Plus, were talking about everyones safety here.
THERE IS NO ALCOHOL ALLOWED.
Thanks for reading. Best be assured, this game is fucking intense. You'll be sweating pure adrenaline.
And now for the maps!Were playing at least 2 games on these 2 maps.
Be at the rendezvous point on the first map at 9:30PM.
Peep the first map here.
After the first game, we will switch drivers and start from the end point of the previous maps.
