Zombies show up humans in final showdown
Students beware — there are monsters on campus. Only this time, they’re not taking jobs as professors or filling administrative positions.
A campus-wide game of Humans vs. Zombies began last Tuesday and carried on until the final mission, which took place on Monday, resulted in a zombie victory.
Humans vs. Zombies started at Goucher College in 2005 and has infected college campuses, military bases, high schools and libraries across the globe. Gnarwhal Studios organized the game at UH and recruited more than 230 students to join the fight against the zombie apocalypse this semester.
The game began with one zombie, who was disguised as a human for the first 24 hours and otherwise noted by a bandana worn around the head. Humans were noted by a bandana worn around the arm. Players used Nerf dart launchers, socks and soft melee weapons during missions.
As the battle ensued, humans were infected by the firm touch of a zombie and had to remove their armband. An hour later, infected humans were to join the zombie horde.
In this semester’s game of Humans vs. Zombies, the undead took over the living population in the final attack.
The warm-blooded players released the cure but were too late to restore their health, which led to a loss of all human life to their brain-eating opponents.
Take this as a warning, Cougars. The next time the zombies are out to play, your brain could be on their dinner table.
