Compliment random strangers on the Mall Oct. 18th
Did you ever play "assassin" in college or at camp, where you have to hit a randomly-assigned person with a squirt gun? In today's terror-fearful and nervous-security-guard times, that's a bad idea in a city, so Cruel 2 B Kind has morphed the weapons into... random kindness.
Your weapons may be serenades, compliments, or friendly greetings. A crowd cheer may catch players unaware. You never know when you'll face the smile that has your name on it.Here's Cruel 2 B Kind in San Francisco:
Your targets are unknown to you. Players have no uniform, know the terrain as well as you do, and can blend in seamlessly. The only way to tell a bystander from another player is by bringing your kindness to bear against them. An innocent will be charmed; an assassin, slain.
Innocents will be caught in the crossfire, but when the weapons are random acts of kindness, the only collateral damages are smiling bystanders.
