Alright, well, I'm not sure how prominent this fad is around everyone else, but around here, huge amounts of people are running around with nerf guns and yellow bandanas attacking each other.
Basically, its a game of tag played with Nerf Guns, played 24/7. The rules are as followed:
Humans vs. Zombies is a game of tag. All players begin as humans, and one is randomly chosen to be the “Original Zombie.” The Original Zombie tags human players and turns them into zombies. The zombies must tag and “feed” on a human ever 48 hours or he starves to death and is out of the game.
• The Zombies win when all human players have been tagged and turned into zombies.
• The Humans win by surviving long enough for all of the zombies to starve.
• Nerf gun and/or socks
• One 3×5 index card
Staying On Campus: Humans must sleep on campus. If you need to leave campus for longer than 24 hours, we apologize, but there are no exceptions.
I.D. Number: Humans must keep one index card with their unique identification number on them at all times.
Stunning a Zombie: Humans may stun a Zombie for 15 minutes by shooting them with a Nerf gun or throwing a sock at them.
When Tagged By a Zombie: When tagged by a Zombie, a Human is required to distribute their ID card. One hour after being tagged, a Human becomes a member of the Zombie team. Wear your bandanna around your head – you are now allowed to tag other Humans.
Wearing a Headband: Humans must wear a headband around an arm or leg to identify them as players of the game. (This headband will come in handy when you become a zombie!)
Feeding: Zombies must feed every 48 hours. A zombie feeds by reporting their kill on the website.
Wearing Your Headband: Zombies must wear a bandanna around their heads at all times. The Original Zombie does not need to wear a headband.
Tagging: A tag is a firm touch to any part of a Human. After tagging a
Human the Zombie must collect their ID card. Kills must be reported within three hours.
Getting Shot: When shot with a Nerf gun or hit with a sock a Zombie is stunned for 15 minutes. A stunned zombie may not interact with the game in any way. This includes shielding other zombies from bullets or continuing to run toward a human. If shot while stunned, the zombie’s stun timer is reset back to 15 minutes.
I guess its not so lame, its just really funny seeing all the overweight/scrawny nerds* slinging nerf guns acting like Rambo patroling the entire campus. I wanna run up on them and act like a zombie/zombie killer just to make them mad.
