Now that we’re not seven anymore, suddenly it’s unhip to play freeze tag. Lame right? So most of us adults just quit playing games. Or become hippies and take up ultimate Frisbee. Which is cool and all – but the newest trend?
Humans Vs. Zombies.
It’s spreading like wildfire across college campuses nationally – kinda like the Zed virus itself – and the winner? The survivor.
It’s basically glorified adult tag – one team of humans, and one zombie (usually identified by a distinguishing feature, beyond guttural moans). The zombies goal? Infect people. The people’s goal? Kill zombies. People can use socks, water guns, marshmallow shooters – or anything previously stipulated as acceptable in game rules to bring the enemies down.
Check out the full (and awesome) rules here.
Due to the game popularity – a couple of film makers were inspired to make it a movie. And it actually looks good.
“Students on summer break are exposed to a deadly virus, a neuroinvasive organism that is spread rapidly through direct human contact. The Infected are enslaved by the invading swarm intelligence and driven by an insatiable appetite to consume human flesh. Returning home, the students spread the infection to their fellow classmates and other unsuspecting townspeople. One by one, more students fall victim to the plague, triggering an epidemic that spawns a horde of ravenous zombies.
The zombie horde grows and spreads quickly. Amidst the chaos, a campus security guard, obsessed with conspiracy theories, leads a group of students to safety as they and a small band of uninfected townspeople set out to find other human survivors in an attempt to discover the source of the “zombie” virus and save the world.”
