The Three Rules

“It’s basically a giant game of tag”

-Matt Mols


  • From Monday, October 11th through Sunday, October 24th

  • 24/7, all over the globe, even Japan (but probably not)

  • 2 Teams - Humans and Zombies



What to do

What to do

  • Survive at all costs

  • Wear your green armband on your left arm, above the elbow

  • Don’t get tagged! Run! Hide!

  • Stun zombies with approved weapons

  • Attend missions.

  • I highly encourage humans to do the last two things mentioned.

What is a tag

What is a tag?

  • Any physical contact where a Zombie touches a Human is a tag

    • Head tags and blaster tags do not count

    • Clothing and backpacks are extensions of the body, they do count

    • Same-time tags rule in favor of zombie

      • Human is zombified, Zombie is stunned

  • There are exceptions we’ll cover later

    • Safe zones

    • Stun timers

How do i stun

How do I stun?

  • Use an approved Nerf™ or other brand foam blaster . If modified, it must be approved by the game director. Don’t use these in residence halls.

  • Socks - can only be filled with more socks

  • Marshmallows - must be large sized, no minis

    • May not be thrown indoors

    • No hardened marshmallows, please!

    • Fresh, out of the bag is best

Human missions

Human Missions

  • Attend at least 3 missions per week.

  • If you don’t you’ll be assumed dead and be made into a zombie!

  • Usually take place in the late afternoon or early evening

  • If you can’t attend the minimum, make a post in the support forum to beg for forgiveness.

  • Humans and Zombies will switch their armband to their right arm during missions

Day objectives

Day Objectives

  • Humans will be periodically given objectives to complete during the day, but before the regular missions

  • Humans will receive rewards for completing these optional objectives

  • Humans may be given mission credit once a week for completing day objectives.

  • Zombies should not skimp on hunting during the day.

safe time





  • Wear your green armband on your left arm and your orange headband on your head

    • Headband must be clearly visible from all angles; hair, hoods, etc. shouldn’t cover it

  • Feed on humans, don’t let your feed timer run out

  • Don’t get stunned!

Feed timers

Feed Timers

  • You start out with 48 hours

  • Each feed is worth 48 hours

  • Your maximum feed timer is 48 hours

  • If you run out of hours on your timer, you starve!

  • Hunt humans to stay alive.

Stun timers

Stun Timers

  • If you get stunned by a human you can’t tag or follow humans for 15 minutes

    • You can follow and tag (for assists) recently-turned, incubating humans

  • When you are stunned put your headband around your neck

  • You can’t get feeds but you can get assists

  • Stun timers are reset to maximum if you are re-stunned by humans



  • Each human gives out 1 feed and at most 2 assists when tagged

  • To get an assist you must physically tag the human while he/she is incubating
