No Bond for Old Men, Bondchella, Bondgina, Bond Age
"Thanks to those of you who commented with your suggestions for maps. I've got a couple of new speculative places in the works. We've now got quite a few untested maps. But the big news...
We will be running two brand new maps scouted by Jeff Mahachai. They are going to be pretty fucking badass if you ask me. I'm pretty excited to say the least. Take a look.
We're starting at the corner of Woodbine and Glendon. There should be plenty of streetparking anywhere across the street from Palms Middle on Woodbine. We'll end in a docking bay behind the Vons, regroup, then walk across the street to the next map.
This map should promise to be intensely atmospheric to say the least.
That'll do it for now kiddos. If you're new to this, or are bringing someone new, make sure they read the rules. Thanks.
See you on the streets." [caseysgay]
"BOND is an extremely intense, adrenaline pumping, action packed, fright filled take on the classic kids game “hide n seek”. The group of players starts at a predetermined meeting point. The objective is for the runners to get from Point A to Point B under the time limit, without being tagged. Heres the twist... the chasers are driving cars.
Each car starts with a pair of chasers; the driver and the passenger. The drivers function is obvious, use the cars speed to easily chase down the runners. The passenger's duty is to hop out and tag them. When you are tagged, you get into the car and become a chaser as well. If the chaser car is good, pretty soon it will be filled to capacity. The next person they see is gonna be chased down by 5 people at a time.
It gets intense. As a runner, you've got to cover about a mile of ground. As you will see on the maps, were playing in mostly residential neighborhoods. Everything is fair game except backyards and hopping fences. Its only fun if the cars have a chance to spot you. Basically, stay on the roads.
Thats pretty much the gist of it. The rules will be covered extensively on the night of the run. Theres only one major rule everyone needs to know before hand.
THERE IS NO ALCOHOL ALLOWED.
This should be obvious as there is a heavy and required element of driving involved in the game. We have been hassled by the cops before, but since no one was drinking, they actually let us continue playing. The game itself arouses suspicion in home-owners as well (30 kids running around in black ninja masks, being rundown by screeching tires... cmon). Theres a good chance people may even call the cops. Plus, were talking about everyones safety here.
Thanks for reading. Best be assured, this game is fucking intense. You'll be sweating pure adrenaline." [via]
