Better late than never right? Back in January this year we ran our first Canberra Hunger Games.
Starting with around 40 unarmed players on the outskirts of ‘the cornucopia’, the game kicked off with a mad dash for the assortment of blasters, darts, spare clips and melee weapons strewn throughout a ~20m circle, or there were some socks spread randomly throughout the rest of the game zone.
Basically the whistle went and it was everyone for themselves. Run for the middle and take your chances against the other players, or bug out and hope you find a sock soon.
Some earned themselves a nice selection of weapons from the word go.
While others had to made do with whatever they could get their hands on.
When a player was tagged they were to offer whatever weapons they had to the player who tagged them, then return to the starting area for zombification.
A few minutes into the game, already dead players were re-released into the game as zombies to act as game control. Zombies were tasked with ‘encouraging’ any camping players in to conflict with other active players, and to just generally speed up the game.
Alliances were formed but everyone knew that by the end, there could only be one.
