Day games are a special term for a day-long assassination games played on specific sites with varying formats. On this page is a short recap about the history of day games and other assassination games held outside the tournaments.
In a rabbit game participants hunt for public targets instead of cyclic murder rings, often in a limited space. Most commonly the rabbit game is held annually as a General Game (check out this page to read about their history), but other rabbit games have been held during the years as well, such as the HYY150-Festival's assassination tournament and the Rabbit Game 2015 located in the Sea Fortress Suomenlinna.
Its own sub-type of day games are the cruise games, which are played exclusively aboard cruising ships in individuals' murder rings - without witness rules! Consequently if you happen to see someone on your weekend holiday peeking over the corner while holding a water pistol or rapidly dashing through the cabin corridors, the disturber of your peaceful holiday might well be an assassin participating in an on-going game. It is naturally best to leave these people in their own peace consumed by the lovely and heady paranoia, even if you cross paths with them. The Cruise Game has been held several times, the most recent being held in January 2020.
Another sub-type of day games are the Linnanmäki games held at the beginning of fall. The game format consists of individuals' murder rings, a team game of capture-the-flag and a photography missions, so plenty of action is going on in these games. To avoid making the game too cumbersome, special weapon-dependent witness rules are used. A Linnanmäki game has been organized at least on 2016 and 2016.
Assassins have occasionally organized assassination tournaments in Ropecon ry's annual role-playing convention Ropecon. A modified set of witness and weapons rules have been used in these tournaments, and the games have lasted through all weekend.
