Humans vs Zombies

I don't know how I never heard of this game before...

 From Wikipedia...

Humans vs. Zombies (also called Zombies vs. HumansThe Zombie Game, or HvZ for short) is a live-action game predominately played at college campuses where players begin as Humans and try to survive in a story where Zombies have begun to rise from the dead. The game was created in the fall of 2005 at Goucher College by students Brad Sappington and Chris Weed. Weed and fellow players have since created an official website with rules and information for other universities to create and customize their own HvZ game. Since the game's creation, Humans vs. Zombies has been played at various colleges across the United States, at ANU in Canberra, and CSU in Wagga Wagga, both in Australia. Attempts have been made to bring the game to the United Kingdom, with the first being in Northampton, and the most recent being at the University of Sussex and the University of Kent which boasted over 350 student participating.
The ultimate goal of the game is for either all Humans to be turned into Zombies, or for the humans to survive a set amount of time. Humans defend themselves using socks or dart guns, stunning the Zombie players; Zombies are unarmed and must tag the Humans to gain a kill and avoid "starvation", forcing them out of the game. Safe zones are established so that players can eat and sleep in safety.

Here is even a documentary about the game, which is how I first discovered it...

I wish this had been around twenty plus years ago when I was the age of these kids. it would have been a blast!!!
