This is not to be confused with the gay web personals site or the Playstation game whose theme was based upon the urban legend of snuff videos. According to the organizers’ website it’s a “REGRESSIVE HIDE AND SEEK THAT’S TOTALLY RAD” that takes place every week with a new location every week.

This week’s event will take place this Tuesday (MARCH 14) ….

9:00 PM SHARP!

According to the organizers:


Manhunt is a hide-and-seek variant. The game starts out with one person, known as the MANHUNTER, who is “it”. After the manhunter has been selected, the FUGITIVES have 120 seconds to hide.

If a FUGITIVE is tagged by a MANHUNTER, she or he is BRAINWASHED and forced to join the side of the MANHUNTERS. At the end of the designated time limit, all FUGITIVES who have not been arrested are declared the winners.

Play occurs within predetermined boundaries. If a FUGITIVE exits these boundaries for any reason, she/he joins the MANHUNTERS. Players are identified as being distinct from the general civilian population by means of a HIGHLY-VISIBLE ARMBAND.

    They even have a blog! Hopefully they will post pictures afterwards. Hmm, one week I want to join in.

    As for the armbands, I see red armbands a la the Chinese Red Guards. Creepy in a totalitarian kind of way, yet aesthetically pleasing in a revolutionary kind of way.

    Sounds like a tonne of fun! Unfortunately most of my friends are too cool for this kind of horseplay but I have a certain friend who also happens to be a blogger and bloggers have enough of a sense of humor to do this kind of stuff.

    Ariadna, we should organize a Beyond Robson/Metroblogging meetup where we do this first then go for drinks afterwards.
