Police, school officials sound alarms over 'Assassin' squirt gun game EXETER — Police chiefs from the six towns in School Administrative Unit 16 are asking Exeter High School seniors to quit playing a squirt gun game called “Assassins” before someone gets hurt. The chiefs issued a joint warning this week about the dangers of playing the popular game, which is often played by seniors at the end of the year and involves teams of students who must track down their targets and blast them with a water gun. Police and school officials have voiced similar concerns in the past. Exeter students began playing the game in recent days. It’s a game that’s become a tradition on high school and college campuses. Players pay money and try to survive the longest to win the cash prize at the end. The game generally involves two-person teams who must hunt down their assigned targets to “assassinate” them with a water gun.
