Last weekend saw another Humans vs Zombies game here in Canberra. With a turn out of 51 players we didn’t quite break our record set in January this year, but we came damn close. I was using the day as the test bed for my newly modified Hailfire (which I was pretty happy with, but that will come later) but the day in general was of course just a load of fun.
We played 3 games before getting rained out; a regular HvZ, a Juggernaut game, than a ‘hold the bridge’ game.
The day also saw the introduction of a new original zombie mechanic whereby OZ’s were rewarded for going off early. In previous games we would regularly have problems whereby a bunch of OZ’s would try to retain their OZ form for as long as they could, meaning the game would often take quite some time to get going. If you were one of the first few OZ’s to reveal yourself and make the initial tags, you would receive a pool noodle to assist in your tagging abilities as a regular zombie for the rest of the game.
For the Juggernaut game we brought out three juggernauts; unstunable mobile respawn points that could only walk. Oh, and they had a pair of pool noodles.
The third game started off like any other, except once we got to an acceptable number of zombies all remaining humans were told to quickly make their way to a small bridge in the centre of the map and instructed to hold it for as long as they could. This in particular made for some nice burst shots…
From here on I’ll just let you enjoy the regular photos.
