WHAT IS SPARTANS VS ZOMBIES?
MSU’s giant version of a classic college game, played on campuses around the nation.
A free, week-long game of tag with hundreds of players.
The most fun thing ever.
WHAT DO I NEED?
A foam dart blaster (NERF, etc).
A bright red, orange, or yellow bandanna.
A Player Code from this site! Write it on some notecards & carry it with you.
HOW DO I PLAY?
There are three types of players:
All players begin the game as Humans.
Humans try to survive as long as possible. They carry foam dart blasters or socks & defend themselves with them.
Note: Socks are thrown, not swung.
When a Human is tagged, they wait 30 minutes, then become a Zombie.
Zombies try to tag Humans using their hands. These ones can run.
When a Zombie’s body is hit by a dart or sock, they are ‘stunned’.
Stunned Zombies temporarily wear their bandannas around their necks. After ten minutes, they are back in the game.
When a Zombie tags a Human, the Human hands over his Player Code. Player Codes are entered on this website.
Note: Unlike in previous games, these Zombies do not starve. Player Codes are only used for identification and personal stats.
3. Original Zombies.
Original Zombies (OZs) are a pre-selected few, beginning the game as Zombies.
They only appear on Monday, quietly tagging as many humans as they can.
They act like Humans, carrying weapons and wearing their bandannas on their arms.
They can be stunned like regular zombies, but don’t move their bandannas when they’re stunned.
OZ Survival Tip: On Monday, trust no one.
WHERE DOES IT HAPPEN?
The MSU campus. Off campus is off-limits.
The game takes place all day, from the 13th to the 18th, halting every night at midnight and resuming every morning at 7.
Indoors and within 10 feet of entrances are Safe Zones. We don’t play here. Stow your stuff. Seriously, keep your blasters in backpacks or your rooms while indoors. It disrupts the flow of things when someone has a Nerf blaster on display in classrooms and dining halls.
WHAT ARE THE RULES?
1. Only MSU students and faculty can play.
2. Only foam dart blasters and socks can be used. No foam swords/melee weapons, marshmallow guns, tasers, etc.
3. Your weapons CANNOT look like real weapons. This is a biggie. Don’t paint them, etc.
4. Bandannas must be constantly worn and visible, except in Safe Zones. Don’t cover them up with clothing, hair, etc.
5. Zombies can’t use weapons or items, such as shields.
6. This is a tagging-only game. No tackling, etc.
7. Don’t use your weapons on non-players.
8. Non-players can’t be involved. They can’t act as shields, spies, aid, etc.
9. This is an on-foot game. No vehicles, including bikes, skateboards, mopeds, etc, can be used while playing. If you need to use a vehicle during the game, take your bandanna off to avoid confusion.
10. If a tag is disputed, rock-paper-scissors determines the outcome.
Be respectful to everyone on campus. Player or not.
WHAT ARE MISSIONS?
Missions are the craziest part of Spartans Vs Zombies.
Beginning at 7pm every night, missions involve large-scale objectives for the Humans, with rewards if completed within the time limit.
Zombies use this as an opportunity to hunt. They also often have objectives and rewards.
Each night has a new mission, posted in the Mission Briefing section.
In summary, Missions are where everybody who plays Spartans Vs Zombies comes out and has a blast. They are optional.
