SPY vs SPY! NERF ASSASSINATION

April 29th, 2017

Spies Vs Spies!
Since there wil be spies crawling all over Nauticon 2017, let the assassinations begin!

Each participant will get a dossier of who they are supposed to kill, but NO NAMES, and will have to go to certain Tastings, areas of Nauticon or Events to receive clues. But asking the WRONG questions can be Nerf fatal!

It's $10 to register for the nerf war; persons will recieve a dossier and dark glasses, identifying them as a "spy". OR $20 if you do not own your own gun, and we will get you one.

The rules:
1) No airsofts guns whatsoever. Only Nerf and Nerf related affiliates are allowed
2) Guns can be customized for cosplay, but orange tips MUST be visible
3) EVERYONE participating MUST wear eyewear/ Spyglasses
4) There will be "Neutral" zones, such as the Front Desk, Breakfast, Midnite Pizza party, and active Tastings/Panels that are NOT participants.
5) You MUST register and pay the fee to Participate
6) No one dies at the breakfast table!
7) If someone asked you not to shoot them, COMPLY.
8) ABSOLUTELY NO SHOOTING IN THE HALLWAY WHERE THE HANDPAINTED MURALS ARE ON THE WALLS. If you are caught shooting there, you are IMMEDIATELY BANNED FROM THE HOTEL AND CONVENTION!

WHAT IS NAUTICON?

Nauticon (The 21+ Convention) is a creative and fun way for fans of anime, science fiction, fantasy, comicbooks, and all things nerdy to get together and get to know one another.

The event is held annually when we rent the entire Provincetown Inn so that you and your friends are part of a truly private event. And did we mention the beach? You can watch the sun set over the water while playing Battleshots at the Barfleet party.

Nauticon has panels ranging from anime to science fiction and comicbooks to webcomics, discussions of Star Trek or Doctor Who, programs run by the Dirty Old Lady's League and the Miracle Providers Drag Queens, and everything in between. Activities include a hike out to the lighthouse, incredible shopping in Provincetown, a creativity table, karaoke, kite flying, fan-run parties, and the Artists Colony. All of this is part of your badge cost!

But wait, there's more! For a small fee you can join in on tastings of meads or Scotch, or food parings like bourbon and chocolate. Or go off to the Provincetown Center and take in a show or go to the tea dance!
