Nerds Equipped with Radical Firepower vs Zombies!
We can meet at the left side of the park over by the picnic benches next to the big baseball diamond if that works for folks. We have some extra weapons we can loan out and everyone is free to bring their own Nerf gear as well. Zombie dress is encouraged but not required.
Highly suggested to bring lots of water and maybe even something to eat.
Suggested Rules of Play:
Goal: Survivor team must collect the resource flag and make it to the safe house with at least one member uninfected / Zombie team must tag all survivors before they win. After one team wins teams re-assemble, ammo is cleaned up, and another round beings. If the group size is large enough, we have a "Cure" flag that converts the zombies into survivors.
Survivor Team will have fewer members than the zombie team (if 9 then 3 players) and ammo will be limited to 10 to 15 darts to start / no reloads unless you reach specified ammo caches around the field. Survivors, and zombies, will be walking during the event, and NOT running.
Any player tagged by a zombie must stop and count to 25 / after 25 seconds they turn and can no longer help the survivor team. They may continue shooting or leave their gun for a teammate to pick up.
Once shot, ammo stays on the ground until cleanup at the end of the round.
Guns: We have two types of guns we can loan: shotgun (Nerf Barrel Blaster) and SMG (Nerf Marauder). If a zombie is hit from an SMG, they must stop and count to 10 seconds. If they are hut from a shotgun, they must stop and count to 20 seconds. This is a reloading balance factor for these two weapons.
Any player caught shooting zombies in the head will be ejected for stereotypical movie behavior / unethical play.
Zombie Team will have the majority of members (if 9 then 6 players) and will GENTLY tag survivors to turn them.
If hit on any body part with a dart a zombie must stop and count to 10 before moving again. Zombies are responsible for picking up ammo during their freeze.
Zombies may not speak to each other / over-intelligent grunts & groans may disqualify your corpse
Any player caught eating brains will be ejected for stereotypical undead behavior / unethical play.
*DISCLAIMER*: Organizers are poor folks who are not liable for injuries, brains, or lost ammunition. Players not playing safely and with good sportsmanship will be ejected from the game. Bring goggles or other eye protection and never aim for the head - no matter what zombies are only frozen for 10 seconds. Remember zombies were people too!
*Remember - cap of 15 darts per player regardless of gun. If you use rapid fire weapons you may want to reconsider or borrow a slower gun to save ammo.
NO MODDED WEAPONS! (Sorry technomancers)
