You are paparazzi photographers, each eager to prove yourselves worthy for a job opening at a newspaper office on Fleet Street.

Your task is to secretly photograph the other members of your group, using stealth and cunning (hiding in coffee shops, travelling on buses and wearing disguises are all allowed) - without being photographed yourself!

The mission begins at a set time, with no meeting up beforehand. You have an hour to complete the task. The first to capture all the other players on camera wins the game!

Rules

Everyone is equipped with a camera and a map of the area. You should not travel beyond the boundaries of the playing area.

For your photo to count, it must be an identifiable shot of the person. Photos from a distance and from the back are allowed.

Time limit = 1hour

You can communicate by phone or text during the game. Once you have 'captured' one person you don't need to capture them again. This may lead to small groups being formed to chase down the remaining photographers - it is up to you whether to allow this or not!
