==Playstyle== ===Strengths=== * Killer Instincts is useful for sprinting. * Sprint offers solid space control for killing and is good for sprinting. * Assassinate will either kill the target OR Incapacitate the target, making it easier to kill them without having to worry about a response. * Evasion can save turns reactively against Skip-A-Turn and is quite useful for preventing Incapacitation and Disarm in the endgame, as well as at events like [[The Magic Shop]], the [[Archaeology Dig]], the [[Pawn Shop]], [[The Bear!]], and [[The Dragon]]. It can also serve as a temporary shield against another sprinter, like a Druid who wants to Maul you. * Assassinate can be used to beat [[Archaeology Dig]]'s Lv 2 or 3 Small Golem. ===Weaknesses=== * No skills for disposing of junk items like Jinxed Jewel Of Encumberment. * Killer Instincts is reliant on killing players, but if enemy players are at a distance, as they often are when sprinting, it will be more difficult to kill them. And Killer Instincts Speed Boost is not long-lasting. * Assassinate will fail to Incapacitate a Paladin with a Hammer if you move to their space unless you have a Shield. Even with a Shield, it will fail if they have a Holy Hammer. * Barbarians and other Assassins can avoid Incapacitation with Break Free/Evasion, making it harder to kill them. * Crystal Meth, Iron Helmet, and Personal Forcefield can make it harder to kill players, and they make Evasion less valuable. To top it off, they all appear in [[Early Reinforcements]]. (Man Mode is easier to deal with but can work similarly.) * Evasion has to be used preemptively against Disarmed and Incapacitation without the Talent. * Lawyer's Sue can make killing another player painful. ===Strategies=== * Aim to kill your opponents at any given opportunity. * Two Halves of Coconut benefits from Killer Instincts Speed Boost, making it even better than otherwise. * Explosive Sheep, Sword, and Lightsaber are useful tools for same-space killing. * Getting items and effects able to incapacitate, such as Chloroform, Free Drink, Rocket Boots, Pegasus Boots, Sonic Shotgun, various "Today's Special" items from [[The ACME Shop]], and ''Star Power'' will make Assassinate more useful. * During Oktoberfest, Brawler's Brew paired with a Fish can send a player forward and prime them to be killed by Assassinate. * During Summer, Beach Ball can prime nearby players to be killed by Assassinate. * You should generally Sprint the maximum amount of spaces possible; the 1st 7 spaces cost 1 turn of cooldown each, while the final 3 are free. * Bounty Hunting is an acceptable option at [[The Academy Of Adventure]]. * If the Adventure Time reference event is chosen, you can get Reflective Shades, which are particularly useful for avoiding knockback from Guns while sprinting, or you could simply go a decent amount of spaces forward. However, you run the risk of enemy players getting Orbs or even an Enchiridion, and magic is an effective way to halt a sprinter. * If the Dr. Who reference event is chosen, you can go to [[The Future]] to buy a Lightsaber or get a random event and hope for a Phaser or Improbability Device. You can go to the [[Middle Ages]] to buy a Sword and Boots. You can also go to the [[Prehistory]] and preemptively use Evasion in case you get Incapacitated and dragged forward by Mammoths or you gain Skip-A-Turn from Cavemen if you are female. If you go with The Doctor, you can get Cocaine from the Arcane Portal or take the Catapult for fast space gain. However, Sonic Screwdriver can be utilized to drain Energy from your Lightsaber, other players will have easier access to [[The Future]] for EMP Generators, Personal Forcefields, and tools to halt your sprint, and other players may buy Shields and Iron Helmets from The Market. They can also access Crystal Meth through the Arcane Portal. * If the Board Game Of Thrones reference event is chosen, you can become a Stark to get Boots and periodically get a helpful Speed Boost from the Godswood if you have no Curses (or get a Curse removed if you have one.) You can become a Baratheon for a Dark Scroll: Mark For Death and for an opportunity to kill [[The Bear!]] and skin it to create Bear Hands or Bearskin Boots for killing (or Bearskin Vest to avoid Dragon Frost and prevent Frostbolt from Rooting you.) You can become a Targaryen for magic defense and at least 1 immunity against potential enemy Dragonlings that may be used to slow you down. * If the Interdimensional Portal Gun reference event is chosen, and you have the Assassinate talent, [[Fake Fake Turd]] from [[Universe J-19 Zeta]] allows Skip-A-Turn for killing with Assassinate.
