Human Vs. Zombie Tag A Growing Trend On College Campuses, Having Sex Declining

October 9, 2008


Apparently Human Vs. Zombie Tag (HvZ) is a growing trend on college campuses.

An HvZ game typically involves hundreds of students and runs 24 hours a day for days on end; dwindling numbers of humans try to fend off and outlast growing legions of zombies.

The rules are fundamentally simple: Zombie tags human, human becomes a zombie. Unlike movie zombies, with shambling walks and undead makeup, zombies in the game just wear headbands to distinguish them from armband-wearing humans. And they are free to sprint.

If you're a human, you can "stun" zombies for 15 minutes by hitting them with a Nerf gun or balled up sock (preferably stuffed with pennies). I dunno about all that, but, for the sake of unbiased reporting, I suppose I'll have to play before passing judgment.

UPDATE: I bit some bitch's arm off! Good times!

Hit the jump for a video of a game that actually made me feel embarrassed for the guy talking.

Thanks to Christopher, who is actually friends with Al Palmer, who is mentioned in the USAToday article, making them both celebrities in my book.
