Humans vs. Zombies is basically a week-long game of tag in which “humans” designated by an armband use socks and nerf darts to defend themselves from “zombies” who wear their bandanna around their head.
The game begins with just one original zombie who begins tagging humans as they travel through campus. Missions throughout the week give an advantage to either side for the final mission which will be occurring Friday night around 11pm.
At that point, the humans will attempt to complete an objective while the zombies attempt to tag them. If all humans are tagged before the mission can be completed, the zombies win.
The game is designed to not interfere with academics or with non-players. It is against the rules to tag or throw socks at someone who is not wearing an armband or a headband and all academic building and dorms remain no-play zones.
Sports practices and other school events are also off limits and deemed “safe” for all human participants and the missions are completely outdoors to avoid disturbing study areas. Besides the occasional mishap in which a jumpy human tosses a sock at a confused non-player, participants follow the rules and respect its boundaries.
