tRADitions: Humans vs. Zombies (HvZ)

During the Fall and Winter Quarters, the University of Chicago’s Zombie Readiness Task Force holds a game of Humans vs. Zombies.  The premise is fairly simple: humans, armed with Nerf guns, defend themselves against zombie players and survive the week (if they get tagged by a zombie, they become a zombie too).  Competition gets intense–students in the past have even built apps to track other players during the course of the game.
