KGB is a huge game of hide and seek played by high school students from numerous Albuquerque schools. The objective is to get from one place to another without being found by a “chaser.”  The game is very challenging and it takes a lot of skill! Participants can expect anywhere from 50 to 100 other people  attending KGB on a weekly basis.  The payoff?  Bragging rights. There’s no prize for the winners.

The game involves running, jumping, and hiding so you don’t get caught. 24 out of 30 people surveyed said that they got some sort of injury from one of those activities. However, 20 out of 30 people said the they think KGB is a safe game if the participants are careful.

True to genuine KGB standards for secrecy, an anonymous source from this KGB game said, “It’s fun to meet new people from different schools and be able to have a good time with a lot of people. It’s a great experience.”

So, how does someone get involved? It’s a simple grapevine:  the person who knows about the next game texts others with information. Anyone who receives information can go.

Once participants are gathered at the designated meeting place, chasers are identified and the game begins.

KGB is very popular now and more and more high school students have started attending. It’s a great way to get to know new people and to be with your friends.

In order to win the game you have to make it to the given destination without getting caught by one of the other students. The game is memorable. It’s the kind of fun you’ll be able to tell your own kids about someday.  It’s a chance to experience getting to know a lot of people from other schools.

    24 out of 30 people had some sort of injury and yet the turn-up is about 50 people. You have to get some sort of thrill or be some sort of crazy to participate in something as extraordinary as that.

    This Sounds like KGB would be alot of fun! I agree in the way of saying that it would be safe as long as you are careful and pay attention to your surroundings.
