Nearly a month and a half after the start of Ambush, only 17 players remain. The game started with about 300 contestants, said Ryan VanDosen, social-life intern. Last year's game came down to finals week before Lucas Grudda was named the winner. According to VanDosen, this year three to five "assassins" will be hired again. Some of the assassins were in this game earlier and have been eliminated, while some were never playing. They are students who were "randomly chosen," said VanDosen. The assassins will be sent out Tuesday through Friday of this week, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. These select chosen students will be allowed to shoot anyone left in the game with a squirt gun, eliminating that player from Ambush.
