blourne identity

A favourite game played among bloggers away from their blogs. Involves the furtive blogger dropping vague hints about their upcoming whereabouts when travelling. Readers of the blog will try to guess the blogger's location, with diehard players going to the trouble of tracking the elusive one through picturesque cityscapes in a worldwide hunt for glory.

Points are awarded for successfully glimpsing the blogger and surreptitiously "tagging" them. Bonus points up for grabs for keeping them indoors and brainwashing them with slides of your last visit with Aunt Maud from Kempsie.

The blogger may win the game by successfully avoiding detection. If discovered, they may redeem all points by eliminating the tail through use of lethal force—earning a whopping 500pts, plus movie rights and a free holiday at taxpayers' expense.
