What you need to know to survive a zombie apocalypse
Humans v. Zombies (HvZ) was first invented at Goucher University in Baltimore, MD It was developed as a way to bring people together, in a game that resembled tag with a twist Based on science fiction, the game simulates a zombie outbreak in which Humans must fight to outlast the zombie horde
An “original zombie” is selected at random, and no one can identify that person until they claim a victim. All other players start off human, and can use nerf guns to stun zombies for a set period of time. If a human player is tagged, he/she must wear a headband and becomes a zombie after one hour. The game can be adjusted to give different missions to each team with rewards for completing them. After all zombies are dead, or all humans are lost, the game ends.
Zombies rely on ambushes to claim victims since the opposing team is armed with ranged weapons. The more zombies are created, the bigger the advantage of using swarm tactics.
Safety in groups for defense, but on the move it is best to spread out instead of risking your entire team to an attack. As the game goes on, the humans become outnumbered, and must use their ingenuity to complete missions
Only Nerf (or equivalent) guns are allowed in the game, for obvious reasons. Types of Nerf guns/usage N-Strike Maverick ($7.99) 6 shot revolver, used primarily for close range Rapid reloading and light weight makes it versatile in any scenario N-Strike Longshot CS-6 ($29.99) Sniper rifle equipped with two six-round clips Ideal support weapon, shoots up to 35 feet accurately Vulnerable if used alone or against more than one enemy N-Strike Vulcan EBF-25 ($42.99) Fully automatic tripod-mounted blaster equipped with two 25- round ammo belts Best defense against an all-out attack, but use caution as it is prone to jams
