Mayhem 2: The Olympics of Death

The 1995 Macworld Marathon 2 Tournament

Bungie Software will host Mayhem 2, the second annual Marathon net-game tournament, during the January Macworld Expo in San Francisco.

Mayhem 2 takes advantage of the variety of net game scenarios in Marathon 2 to challenge all of the skills of the Marathon player. Like a homicidal Bruce Jenner, the winner of Mayhem 2 will have to dominate not only the Carnage arena, but also games of King of the Hill of and Kill the Guy with the Skull.

Each round will last 10 minutes, and will be played on a net level suitable for the event. At the end of the round, Bungie staffers will tally the scores and the winner(s) will advance to the next round. In the event of a tie, it will be settled by a Sudden Death Carnage game in the Thunderdome.
