Carpenter's progress chart contained 31 lines suggesting there were 31 players. Only 20 lines were shown close enough to read the names though. The legible section of the chart contained the following names from top to bottom: C Sterns, W Pickett, H Johnson, S Swayze, A Neumen, D Swanson, B McTell, M Douglas, T Wallace, S Fraley, R Simonetti, M Holmes, L Gersh, G Nelson, R Johnson, E Presely, N McCauley, B Gowdy, N Wilson and J Schooster. Obviously it was not in alphabetical order or any discernible semblance. The part of the chart above the section containing these names was never shown close enough to be legible but presumably had 11 names. Connally, Gersh's kill in the opening scene, is not among the 20 nor is one of Susan's kills, Richard Chudnow. Particularly odd is that neither is one of Gersh's murder victims. Alex was checking off who killed each missing TAG player but he never checked who killed March, the last person on his list. We are only given the last name March for this victim and have to assume Gersh killed him as well. In addition some of the 20 listed were terminated by 2 names not among those 20. Thus we can assume that T Meyers, D Morsky as well as Connally, Chudnow and March are among the 11 names that preceded the 20 we can read. The progress report chart in Carpenter's car only had 14 lines oddly enough. See more »
In the second scene Susan ducks as Schooster and Charlie shoot at her thus they shoot and kill one another. Yet on Carpenter's progress chart "S. Swayse" (note the misspelling with an S in place of the Z) is credited with J. Schooster's kill. See more »

A group of students in college are playing a game called TAG:The Assassination Game with plastic dart guns.A college newspaper reporter played by Robert Carradine decides to write the story about TAG after one of the players beautiful Linda Hamilton hides out in his room.Gersh(Bruce Abbot)becomes angry after failing the game,so he starts to use gun with a real bullets and the hunt begins..."Tag:The Assassination Game" was directed by Nick Castle who played Michael Myers in John Carpenter's "Halloween".It's also worth checking out for fantastic actors including Linda Hamilton,Bruce Abbot,Robert Carradine,Xander Berkley,Michael Winslow and Forest Whitaker.The score is excellent,the pace is fast and there is a bit of violence but no gore and nudity.7 deadly dart guns out of 10.
