“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.

feed timers
Feed Timers

  • Each feed is worth 48 hours
  • Your maximum feed timer is 48 hours

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
