Journey to the End of the Night 2012 Official Manifest
Player Instructions
Your goal is to reach the Finish Line with a stamp from each Checkpoint without being caught by Chasers. You may walk, run, or ride CTA trains and buses. At each Checkpoint you must find an Agent to stamp your manifest. If a Checkpoint has closed, find a stranger to stamp or sign your map. If you are caught (tagged), remove your blue ribbon and give it to the Chaser who caught you. Put on your red ribbon. Your goal now is to catch other players. As a Chaser, you can only tag one Runner at a time. You must acquire the Runner’s blue ribbon before you can tag someone else. You are playing at your own risk. In case of game emergency, seek the nearest checkpoint agent. IN CASE OF MEDICAL EMERGENCY, CALL 9-1-1

Tagging
All tags must be “clean and fair.” If there’s any reasonable dispute over fairness of a tag, the Chaser loses. Don’t attempt a tag unless you’re sure you’re in fair territory! All disputes must be settled by the Players present at the time of the tag. If the tagged Runner does not challenge an unfair tag at the time that the ribbon is handed over, the tag is fair. No disputes will be handled at Checkpoints or the finish line.

Safe zones always extend to both sides of a street (including sidewalks. ) Train stations are safe zones. Bus stops are not safe zones. You are safe while riding a train or bus. You are safe if you are boarding a stopped bus, but not if you are getting off a bus.
