It's that time again, for the most awesome game of tag ever.
Humans vs. Zombies is, basically, a week long excuse for college students to run around campus with Nerf guns. It is awesome.
Last session we had over 700 people playing.
How it works, is on Monday morning, right after midnight, everyone is a Human, except for three or four "Original Zombies." The basic premise, is that if a Zombie tags a Human, that Human becomes a Zombie, but Humans can "stun" Zombies for a short period by shooting them with a Nerf gun or hitting them with a thrown balled-up sock. Zombies have to get kills in order to not starve to death.
There are missions every night in order to keep people from locking themselves in their rooms all week, and for Humans to win, they have to make through the final Extraction mission on Friday. Zombies win by slaughtering every last Human, or by preventing any Humans from being extracted. So far, the Zombies have never won a game, because a handful of people (usually in the single digits) somehow manage to make it out.
It's truly a wonderful game, the strategy, the teamwork, the epic battles when 100 Humans stand off against a horde of 200 Zombies.
I'll be going as a Human this time (I typically go Zombie in the Fall quarter), and that means I'll be playing the survival game, as fun as being the hunter can be. Just finished dusting off my Nerf guns, and getting everything lined up for Monday. I can't wait. I'll look like a goddamn fool all week, along with 600 fellow students, and I couldn't care less. This game is awesome, and if it's available on your campus, you should sign yourself up.
