    Don't know whats more stupid, the big kids taking part in this or the allusion that the police may confuse a super soaker with a real gun (hint to the Met before you do another Menezes-style execution- Magnum's dont come in day-glo plastic)

    Oh no, the big bright muti-coloured guns look just like the real thing.
    Honest!

    Sheesh, the police are just wasting their own time.

    and btw, it's against the rules of the game to play on public transport and places like airports / bars etc.

    the news should get their facts right.

    Now if you bothered to read it...

    most are bright and obviously water pistols. But some arent.

    Ridiculous... I've heard about this game before.. It looks VERRRRY good.
    The police are over-reacting about 1000%.

    exactly.

    basically the idea is this...

    you pay a minimal registration fee and become a water-pistol hitman!

    you are given the details of your "mark" ie work address, even home address etc and you have to go and squirt them. if you do they are out of the game and you go after the next target until there is one winner.

    it's all very light-hearted/tongue-in-cheek and has strict rules. for instance you are not allowed to squirt them on public transport, in bars or actually in their place of work.

    it sounds like such a good laugh. i'm really tempted to sign up myself.

    ph33r "agent seek"!! :D

    So no one actually read it and understood it?

    Some water pistols can look like real guns.

    meh, it's probably against the rules of the game to use a water pistol that resembels a real gun. from what i gather it's all done very responsibly.

    we really need a link to their website for this thread.
