Humans Vs. Zombies Event

Humans vs. Zombies
October 24, 9:30-11:30

Belk Library and Nerd Network are hosting a Humans vs Zombies gaming event. Students, faculty, and staff are welcome to play! There will be food available at the beginning of the event. We suggest that you bring your own Nerf gun. The first 45 participants without a Nerf gun will be loaned either a six dart or a three dart Nerf blaster.

Humans vs Zombies is a game of tag. Most of the players begin as humans with the objective to evade the growing number of zombies and be the last human "alive."

Players wanting to do zombie makeup can arrive at 9:00 pm to be zombiefied!

Game Rules

  • The game will be played on all of the levels of the library.
  • Students without Nerf guns volunteer to start the game as zombies.
  • Zombies two hand tag a human to infect them.
  • After being tagged, humans hold up one arm to identify himself or herself as a new zombie. New zombies drop off their Nerf guns to designated areas and then play as a zombie.
  • All participants should have one foot on the ground at all times.
  • One foam dart to the torso or two to the extremities stops a zombie.
  • Zombies aren't out of the game when hit with a foam dart, but must “respawn” by going to the designated zones for a five minute time out.
  • The game continues until there is only one human (or close to one human) remaining.

Nerf Gun modifications are allowed, but due to safety reasons, no guns can be in neutral colors (grey, black, green, camo, etc.)

Can Nerf Swords be used?

No melee weapons are allowed, only Nerf guns.

What will be the maximum speed of the zombies and/or humans? Are the zombies going to be able to run after the human or just briskly walk after them?

The fastest a zombie can move is a briskly paced walk/slow jog.

When is the next humans vs zombies.

Tentatively, sometime during the spring 2016 semester. You'll hear about it as we get closer!
