The Hunger Games, Battle Royale, Hostel…cinema is filled with countless movies that all spell out one thing: IRL battle royale games aren’t a good idea (with the exception of Hostel, which teaches us that rich people shouldn’t put on exclusive events for other rich people).
Unfortunately, one millionaire doesn’t seem to have learned these lessons, as he wants to create his own battle royale game on a private island [via Daily Star].
The plan is to see 100 people duke it out in an Airsoft contest over a three-day period. The winner will then nab themselves £100,000, and presumably they’ll also get a home in Victor’s Village and have their District showered with food and treats for the next twelve months.
If this is your kind of jam (or if you see yourself as the next Plutarch Heavensbee or Seneca Crane) then you can apply to be the Gamemaker of the battle royale, where you’ll get to design the arena for the event’s tributes.
If you’re the lucky person who’s selected as Gamemaker then you’ll be paid a pretty tidy £45,000 for your efforts. That is, if the whole thing doesn’t go terribly wrong, in which case £45k might just cover your legal costs.
Marketplace for millionaires, Hush Hush writes: “We were approached by one of our customers, who was on the lookout for a private island, for help in setting up the championship.
“We will also be handling registrations for the event when the time comes. Contestants will be provided with Airsoft guns, ammo and touch-sensitive body armour for a three-day event.
“The ‘last person standing’ will win a £100,000 jackpot. As it is currently planned, the event is intended to last three days, with 12 hours of competition each day. Competitors will then camp for the night. Food, camping gear and all the necessary equipment will be provided.”
If you’re applying, good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favour.
