Last Penguin Standing

April showers my bring May flowers, but don’t be fooled – what you may think is spring rain could be your elimination from the annual game of Penguin Attack! Organized by senior class president, Molly O’Neill, Penguin Attack has 125 student and (brave!) faculty participants, all with the goal of being the last penguin standing.

Armed with a penguin-shaped water pistol and the name of a target, players seek to squirt the unsuspecting player to take him or her out of the game. The disqualified squirtee then relinquishes the name of his own target and the victorious squirter is off and running. The game continues until a single attacker remains. The one big rule: squirting must be done fairly and outside only.

While last year’s game took over a month to complete, we’ll be sure to keep the updates coming until a 2013 champion is named. Good luck (and watch out!)
