Last night I played MANHUNT!!!. As in, I played hide-n-seek with a bunch of people in downtown Vancouver. Fun fun fun! Check out the boundaries:
I lasted around 30 minutes (out of the 50-60 total) until I was caught. The longer it goes on the harder it gets, since more and more people become hunters.
I had a good sprint where I outpaced a solo hunter early on. I had a solid headstart when he saw me in the middle of a long alleyway near the waterfront. There was no side route escapes, so it was just a straight sprint to reach the end and maybe hide somewhere else. My lungs hurt pretty hard afterwards, but I got away (only to be swarmed later). Serious training should I ever be manhunted for real...
There also appears to be a Toronto Manhunt. Any Montrealers gonna start one up there?
During tonight's manhunt I pulled off a fast dash through a gap in busy traffic on Georgia St that would have made James Bond proud. The guy chasing me was close behind, but he didn't make the gap and I got away. 2 minutes later on the other side of the block a cop-car pulled up in front of me and 2 policemen got out. (This marks the 4th time I have been approached by police in Vancouver, approximately once per month =). Right away one of them said "you're playing that silly game aren't you". I said yes and displayed my prominent armband. I agreed to "tone it down" and was let loose again.
