HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Zombie Apocalypse Challenge is based on the game of tag. Participants randomly draw their roles at the beginning of the game and become either zombie (predator) or human (prey). The goal of the game is to stay alive. Humans must collect food and water tokens hidden throughout the town and avoiding being caught by zombies. Zombies must catch humans and collect brain tokens. The game lasts for an hour and there are some surprise elements thrown in too!
