Human vs. Zombies

University of Colorado prepared a series of games, where the Students pretend to be in a ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE. How do they play?
They choose a secure building in the campus of the university and each player choose a side.
Humans have to make a barricade and protect themselves from the ZOMBIES using a NERF GUN and ZOMBIES have to get them (naturally), if the ZOMBIE recieve a shot to the head before he touches you, he is dead (again) and if you don’t shot him in the head, you turn into a ZOMBIE and is your turn to “eat” your friends, pretty nice, isn’t it?.
They also prepare missions asides:

  • Rescue the dummy doll.
  • Secure the perimeter.
  • Last Survivor.
  • Protect de VIP.
  • Get out of the building without being infected.

It made me think, what about if we organize our own APOCALYPSE ZOMBIE GAME?
Hope you get interested…




A central area of study at the Zombie Research Society is the undead’s ability to differentiate its living prey from others of its own kind.  If they hunt by sight, then walking like a zombie could afford potential victims functional invisibility.  If they hunt by smell, then certain anti-odor measures could be employed.  But ZRS Researcher, Liz Hope, believes that zombies likely use their sense of touch to find, capture, and devour their prey.

Hope points to the hunting technique of the smallest predator on the planet, the Etruscan Shrew, to support her argument:

“The tiny shrew must eat twice its body weight every day to keep from starving.  And the animals it hunts – crickets, cockroaches, and spiders – are often as big as the shrew itself.  That means it’s constantly looking for its next meal, and does so using only touch.”

She goes on to explain that the shrew spots potential prey visually, then moves in to feel and confirm.  Much like a zombie reaching out for its next meal, the shrew decides what to attack by touching targets with its nose and whiskers.  Because it’s widely believed that zombies are cold blooded, and because their imperfect body is dead and rotting, it stands to reason that the undead would have no trouble identifying a warm, soft, living person using the touch method.

Interestingly, this may also explain why zombies are thought to move about in packs.  If they gather together to investigate each other through touch, they would then be in a naturally formed group as they move on to seek out humans to eat.

Way’s of infection

Another point of view, we all know that if a ZOMBIE bite you, you are fucked, and thinking about how aggressive they are what about if we get a little drop of their blood in our mouth? Could we get infected by that? My question it’s because..the ZOMBIE feels obligated to attack you, that’s one way of getting infected, what about airborne, is the virus already in your blood and when you die it gets active or what?
Another question that’s been bothering me, how long does a ZOMBIE takes to fully decompose?
This could be very useful by the time they arrive, you could build a bunker and spend some time there if you know they will decompose and rotten in 6months, but what if they don’t?

Cast: Mena Suvari (American Beauty), Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction), Nick Cannon (Drum Line), Michael Welch (Twilight), AnnaLyne McCord (The Transporter 2).

The little and calm town is now trying to eat you.
Review: It has some good gore scenes, but there’s missing a little bit more of blood, the funny thing about this movie is that ZOMBIES save a little bit of their human intelligence and memory, there’s a new type of ZOMBIE, VEGETARIAN ZOMBIE (cause in life he was a vegetarian) a pretty lame explanation for this, but it’s all they could think.
ZOMBIE Points: I give this movie 3 zombie points, fun to watch it if you don’t have anything to do.
