The race between runner and hunter is
tough enough... but imagine throwing an ECW wrestler into the mix
and the results are... well, vocal. For once.

Each player is armed with a pack and
nothing else. As the game continues, Trey will release more Hunters
onto the play area. The objective: survive for 60 minutes. First one
to do that and find the exit point wins $25,000 plus $1000 for each
one of 25 money flags hidden on the game board.
Now, today's playing field is one
that we at GSNN have firsthand experience walking through... the
Universal Studios backlot (C-Note: NBC Universal is the parent
company of Universal Studios and SciFi Channel), where Trey
introduces them to our special guest Hunter... ECW/WWE superstar
"I'll eat these
people for lunch!"
In each tech pack today, color coded
goggles, red and blue. These are the teams for ...
Challenge #1: Mirror Mirror.
Head to Robertson's Saloon, where you will have five minutes to use
mirrors to align a laser to a target. Doing so will unlock your
first tool, the Deflector.
And as the rain sets in and the
floodwaters hit the bridge... the Cha$e is on!
Aaaaand the Red Team lost the map.
Blue team almost has their shot
aligned, while Red Team can't get it together. Blue Team needs to
focus a little more... and DEFLECTORS UNLOCKED! But with two minutes
left, it's not over. If they finish, they get to search for hidden
Deflectors outside the saloon. If they miss, then they're on their
own. Not a problem.
And not a moment too soon as Trey
releases the first two Hunters: Wong and Grant.
Red Team has all their Deflectors.
Except for Lynda.
Four money flags get snatched by four
different runners. Meanwhile, London finds an inactive Hunter,
Vazquez, on his twelve.
The money flags continue to be
gobbled like biscuits, while Vazquez, formerly inert, is now active.
Meanwhile, while Lucas is now in
possession of eight money flags, Ameenah is covering herself in the
fog at War of the Worlds. Also there... three runners... and two
Hunters. Double back? Nope. That'll lead to danger. Time to cut
across. It doesn't work for one runner as a Hunter finally sights a
TARGET. Err... Targets. DEFLECTED! Lucas gets away. London and
Trisha seek cover in the tram station. Yeah, that won't work either.
London draws the deep cover. Wong plays along and... DEFLECTED!
Vazquez gets sight of Evan... and
Challenge #2: Hamper the Hunter.
If your packs are a little heavy, it's because Trey snuck a
five-pound weight in it. He's sorry, but he had to do it. To lighten
the load and earn a Sonic Stunner, head to Jaws Lake and give your
weight to inactive Hunter Ricky.
And you have 10 minutes to do it
before he's allowed to feed.
The runners are headed to Jaws Lake
right now. At the end of 10 minutes, Ricky's got himself added
weight totaling 45 pounds.
Wong finds a runner... and Wong loses
a runner. And Vazquez finds the same runner... Woops. DEFLECT!
If you haven't gotten your Sonic
Stunner yet... you better get it now, because... well, Icey's on the
Warning, Ameenah, Grant's found
And mission 2 is over. Which means
Ricky is now active. And angry. Understandably.
Grant finds Ameenah... again. And
it's another footrace. Think doubling back is a good option? Think
Halfway through the game, Trey gives
CLUE: Steer clear of the Bates
Tracy: "You ain't gotta tell me
twice, that guy is psycho! ... Get it?"
Next, Trey offers $2000 to the first
person who hits him back to drop out of the game. Evan is the first,
and he gets $2000, while Darin's inability to work an iPhone
means... it's time to go jogging again with Icey. DEFLECT! Now it's
time to go jogging with Wong. ELIMINATED.
Meanwhile, Grant has Evan in his
Icey sneaks up behind Lynda and...
They're playing Ricky O's song, Tracy
hears it and DEFLECT! But can she outrun Wong. She doesn't have to.
SONIC STUN! Adria finds Vazquez and runs in the other direction to
find Tracy. Grant finds them both and Adria's running again.
Tracy... Too slow. ELIMINATED. Adria trips and uses her sonic
Challenge #3: Deactivation
Station. Attached to your tech packs are homing beacons which
will, in five minutes tell the Hunters where you are. You don't want
that. Deactivate it (by swiping your runner ID) and pick up Inivisi-Goggles
by heading to a deactivation station either at War of the Worlds or
on Denver St.
Five minutes, starting now.
And if that wasn't bad enough, Ricky
has been allowed to drop his extra weight. He's leaner and meaner.
And he's got his eyes set on Lucas. SONIC STUN! That gives him two
minutes to deactivate his beacon and get his glasses.
Wong finds Runners... Trisha stuns...
and Adria wastes her Deflector. On a frozen Hunter. Great.
London, Adria, and Trisha are armed with glasses. Andrew... "(^_^)
that mission." In about 20 seconds, we'll find out if that was a
good decision, because now all the Hunters know where he is. He can
try and run and hide, but if I were him, I'd just run.
And Ricky gets stunned AGAIN. "Awww...
Lucky." That's what Andrew's thinking, Ricky, but he still has four
other Hunters to worry about.
Meanwhile, Wong finds... Kim.
Standing by. And... there's a runner! Trisha better boogie... She
And Kim is still... oh, never mind,
he's active. And he has eyes on his first kill.... Adria, who
GOGGLES up. She has two minutes to figure out someplace to hide. ...
make that thirty seconds, as she takes off her glasses prematurely.
Now they're useless.
London redoubles his bearings. And
cuts himself. "Sometimes you have to spill a little blood to get
some freedom." Ain't that true. Go stun Grant now.
Lucas is blinded by greed, because he
doesn't see three Hunters after him. Soon, he gets winded and has to
use the GOGGLES. Andrew, on the other hand, has no place to hide...
and one of them is on Andrew's tail... GOTCHA. Eliminated.
There are now more Hunters than
runners. London uses his goggles. Lucas ... takes off his glasses
after a minute. He'll regret that, as Ricky gets'im. ELIMINATED.
That leaves three, Adria, Trisha, and
London. London still has his stunner. With less than three minutes
on the clock, it's time to head to the Exit Point...
EXIT POINT: Red Flag on the Shark
at Jaws Lake.
First Runner to make it to the Exit
Point AND grab the red flag takes home all the money they've earned. Fail to get there in
time, and you leave with nothing.
The race is now on, but no one has
ANYTHING to defend themselves with. The Runners are heading to Jaws
Lake... the Hunters are heading to Jaws Lake. Ricky's heading toward
Down to two. Who'll get to the shark
first? London! The bad news... Trisha snatches the flag right up
under him to win $25,000 PLUS $1000 for a money flag. Trey signals
for a ride for him and Trisha off the game board.
Next week, six more Hunters, ten more
runners, and up to $50,000 more money... Until then... game over.
