Attention all Purdue (West Lafayette) Nerdfighters:
Unless you’re a new Purdue student you probably know what Humans vs. Zombies is. A few of my
friends and I are trying to form an HVZ group comprised of Nerdfighters. Not
only does this give us a chance to get to meet new, awesome people, it gives us
a chance to broaden our Nerdfighter network.
Oh… And of course we’re reducing world suck by ridding the campus of
those pesky zombies.
Now, if you’ve got no idea what Humans vs. Zombies is, I’ll explain it to you. It’s basically a giant game of tag, but you get to use Nerf
guns. There are two sides, the humans, and the zombies. All but about 5 players
start off as humans. Those five players that are randomly chosen to be original
zombies get to start the infection. When a human is tagged by a zombie, they
become a zombie. Humans get to use socks and Nerf guns to defend themselves
from the horde.
There’s more to it than just that of course. There are more rules that go into a little more detail about how the game is played, but that’s
basically how the game is played. During the day you go to classes and try to
survive. Sometimes there are optional missions during the day, but the real fun
comes at around 8 at night. Every night there is a mission that the players embark
on. These missions are usually things along the lines of item gathering,
holding a fort, attacking a fort, or escorting an important person somewhere.
It’s a really fun game and you should play. It’s also a really great way to meet new people, even if you’re antisocial. The only reason I know about Nerdfighteria is because I met an awesome person through HVZ.
So if you’re a Purdue student and interested in the game send me a message and join the group.
Oh... This year's game is the week before Halloween. That might be helpful to know. Make sure to look for info about the callouts for the game.
