8-Ball


Teams: 2+

Players: 8+ (More=Confusing=Better)

Weapons: Various

Resurrections: None

Objective: Each team has one member designated as the 8-ball. The 8-ball must be the last person killed on the team in order to win the battle. If the 8-ball is
           slaughtered prematurely, then the team that killed him forfeits the battle and the match resets.

Caveats: First Blood is a good precursor to trying this.

Addendum: As the 8-ball, it's fun to get into the opposing teams way. It's kind of like throwing a wrench.

Re: 8-Ball


Does the opposing team know who the 8-ball is, or is it secret?

If secret, does the 8-ball remain the same person from match to match?

Re: 8-Ball


Another interesting twist would be that if the 8-ball got killed prematurely, instead of the game being over the whole team rezzes back! I could see some interesting 8-ball tactics involving human shields... muwhahahah!

Re: 8-Ball


If the 8 gets killed early do they get up too? I think they should...

lets try this next pract with a larger group. This could do with 10+ people.

Re: 8-Ball


The way I see it, 8-Ball is the anti-king battle. The game finishes when either the 8-ball is killed correctly (making the killing team the winning team) or when the 8-ball is killed prematurely (making the killing team the losing team) and then you line up for more fun!

Re: 8-Ball


My guess is that the knowledge of WHO the 8-ball is will be public. Everyone knows. That way, the 8-ball will be given a bit of an immunity while her teammates live. You only want to kill her when the rest of the team dies.

Everyone should have the knowledge of the 8-balls.


Also, premature "simo" 8-ball kills = everyone loses!

Re: 8-Ball


So from Cordane's post the 8-ball has to be a girl...

Also I keep imagining Charlie Sheen playing this game yelling out WINNING! Am I the only one?

Re: 8-Ball


I hate the gender inequality that English often fosters, but I also get tired of writing "his/hers" and "he/she." So, I just give a few to the females.


Additionally, I despise the common usage of the third-person plural neuter term "their" as if it were a singular. The term "they" can never ever mean one person in proper English.

I know Deakon will be tempted to jot up a smart-ass comment in reply to this, so... I'm waiting. emoticon

Re: 8-Ball


Do you mind if I steal {third-person plural neuter term "their"} I had a good giggle when that came up.

Mr. Mock has the right of it. The 8-ball is known to both sides.

Team resurrections in the event of premature conclusions sounds like a great alteration as well.

Charlie Sheen, HER, & WINNING are also deemed acceptable and appropriate.
