This week has been a fun one on campus: Gotcha, Women to Women, and someone toilet papered our office. There will be more details and photos in the posts to come, but for now let me tell you a little bit about Gotcha. I really do work in a great place!

General Gotcha Summary:
Gotcha is a campus wide game that was adopted from a movie made in 1984 with the same title. The game is played campus-wide by every participant who signs up to play. Each participant is given a plastic ball and an elimination slip with the name of someone else who signed up to play. The objective of the game is to find the person who is listed on the elimination slip and eliminate them by hitting them with the ball. During the week of play, a different safety rule can be followed each day to prevent elimination. Participants cannot tamper with or forcefully remove an opponent’s safety. When a participant is legally eliminated, they must hand over the elimination slips that they have accumulated to the person who eliminated them. At the end of the week, the participant who has accumulated the most elimination slips and has them in his possession (at the given time to turn in elimination slips) is the winner.
