Quick grab your guns! There's a zombie outbreak at Bayswater Park!
The long awaited and anticipated official inaugural game of Humans Vs Zombies is been held at Bayswater Park just a few minutes walk from Bayswater station on the Belgrave line.
It is a Knox City Council park and I'm awaiting confirmation on the booking for the second oval (the first we are a NOT allowed to enter as it's not owned by council, but it is fenced off) of Bayswater park, but we do have use of the rest of the park.
Watch this space for more information!
Please Note- on account of them being REALLY overpowered, no melee weapons are to be used during this game.
Also note: This is a game of honesty. Please be fair, and if you come to a disagreement over anything, be the mature one and just accept what happened. Besides, being a zombie is fun as :-D
Humans VS Zombies
Please bear in mind that because this is a one day event, as oppose to a week long, variations to the rules and they are as follows. Humans vs. Zombies is a game of tag. All players begin as humans, with a few chosen to be the “Original Zombies.” The Original Zombie tags human players and turns them into zombies. The zombies must tag a human to make them a zombie.
This gear is required for all players:
• Nerf gun and socks *socks optional* (socks must be balled up and thrown)
Rules created for the safety of all players are strictly enforced. Violation of safety rules will result in a ban from the game.
1. No realistic looking weaponry.
2. Players must not leave the designated playing area.
3. Players may not use cars......?
4. NO MELEE WEAPONS. If a non-nerf dart gun is used, Darts must not hurt on impact.* nerf guns are the best quality anyway, and you'll be able to use other peoples nerf ammo.
*If you’re not sure about this, message Michael or Alastair.
Stunning a Zombie: Humans may stun a Zombie for 30 seconds. if you believe you didn't get shot, and they believe they shot you, just suck it up- lets not have any arguments. on the other hand, don't say you shot someone when you didn't. it will be better for everyone if you all play by the rules.
When Tagged By a Zombie: When tagged by a Zombie, a Human becomes a member of the Zombie team. Wear your bandanna around your head – you are now allowed to tag other humans to make them zombies.
Wearing a Headband: Humans must wear a headband (bandanna) around an arm or leg to identify them as players of the game. (This headband will come in handy when you become a zombie, as zombies must wear theirs on their head.)
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. this means no "oh but i swear i brushed your jacket". on the other hand, if your a zombie, for gods sake don't pummel your human
Getting Shot: When shot with a Nerf gun or hit with a sock a Zombie is stunned for 20 seconds. they sit on the spot for the 20 seconds and may not interact with the game in any way. This includes shielding other zombies from bullets or continuing to run toward a human.
Shooting Non-Players: Shooting non-players with Nerf darts is a ban-able offence. we just wont let you back or be part of any more games of nerf vs zombie.
Safe Zones: A zombie must have both feet outside of a safe zone to tag a human. Humans can stun zombies from inside of a safe-zone.
No Shields: Zombies may not use shields to deflect Nerf darts or socks. However they can hide behind trees and pillars etc.
Guys don't be stupid and throw rocks and sticks and stuff. Nerf guns only. Zombies may not pick up guns.
When humans are tagged they wait a little while before they become zombies. Once you put your bandanna on your head you are a zombie... But wait 10 seconds before you start tagging.. Don't go ninjaing people that's just tight, besides, you'll need to store your Nerf gun away before you start tagging anyway.
