Cruel 2 B Kind

THIS PAGE REFERS TO 2011

C2BK is a game of benevolent assassination for up to 200 players.  Kill your opponents with weapons of kindness, such as serenading them, complementing them on their beautiful eyes or mistaking them for someone famous.  Sounds simple?  The only catch is you don’t know whose playing.  As the kills increase so does the size of the teams, making it harder to hide.  Immersed in this world of paranoia where all could be the enemy, you’ll need subtlety and cunning to win this game.

  • Date: Saturday June 25th
  • Time: 1.00pm – 3.00pm
  • Place: Brunel campus (setting for Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange)
  • Bring: Mobile phone
  • Entry: free – email beam2bk@gmail.com with subject heading ‘I’M GAME’ and await further instructions.

*SPECIAL TICKET OFFER!* C2BK is free to play but gamers can also buy a concession rate Saturday day pass for only £10 (pre-ordered tickets only). This will allow you to spend the rest of Saturday enjoying workshops, interactive installations and world-class electronic experimental music performance.  If you want to sleepover for free (sleeping bag required) and come along on Sunday too, simply buy a weekend pass for £25.

Will innocents be caught in the cross-fire? Oh, yes. But when your secret weapon is a random act of kindness, it’s only cruel to be kind to other players…

Designed by game giants by Jane McGonigal (Avant Game) and Ian Bogost (Persuasive Games), Cruel 2 B Kind has been played in over 50 cities in 10 countries and 4 continents and is game runner Simon Katan‘s favourite pervasive game.
