    Pat's Bio:
    My name is Pat Bigaouette. I am a Senior Biology major. I run on the cross country and track teams at Scholastica. I currently live in Somers Hall as the Residential Advisor for Ground Floor North. Also, I am actively involved in Scholastica's theater program and hope to get cast in one of the four shows this season. This summer I conducted clinical research at Hennepin County Medical Center in the Emergency room. I also traveled to New York City to pick up a friend from school and, of course, saw the show "Wicked" on Broadway.

HvZ.

As many of you may know, Humans vs. Zombies starts this week! This year is the second year that the event is being held on campus. Essentially Humans vs. Zombies is a really big game of tag. Because of the centennial celebration, the game makers decided to make the goal of the game to survive for 100 straight hours.

I decided to sign up for the game this year, despite being in “Pride and Prejudice” with several other game players. We’ll see how long I can last. For those who have not played before, here is some important information/rules on how to avoid the zombies and stay alive:

Objective: Survive!

The game will end if either:

  1. All Human players are turned into Zombies
  2. Some Humans survive all 100 hours AND complete the final mission

 

Requirements:

  • Must be a CSS student
  • Must have been registered by April 20th
  • Must spend at least 4 hours on campus each day
  • Must wear bandana at all times
    • On arm for Humans; on head for Zombies
    • Nerf gun and/or baled up socks
      • Guns cannot look realistic and hurt on impact
      • Guns must not be visible inside academic buildings
      • Socks must be reasonably clean
      • The provided note card with your ID number on it
        • Hand over your ID card to your assailant Zombie after being tagged
        • These are to help us accurately track who has been “infected”
        • KEEP YOUR NUMBER SECRET
        • Some form of time keeping device to be able to track Zombie stun times
          • Once shot, Zombies are stunned and out of the game for 5 minutes
          • Having a time piece will help players self-moderate the game
          • Have fun! Try and remember that at the end of the day you’re playing a GAME. Sure it may be intense, which is a good thing, but cheating only ruins it for other people


Calling in a Zombification:

  • Tag Human
  • Obtain their ID card
  • Either text humansvszombies@css.edu from your phone or email the same address from a computer
  • State your name and the ID number you have attained so you can receive credit for you efforts

Boundaries:

Specific Boundaries:

-Kenwood Ave.

-Niagara St.

Rough Boundaries:

-The bottom of the Valley of Silence

-The invisible extension of Niagara St.

-Further West than any CSS parking

Don’t even think about it- OFF LIMITS!

-The Cemetery

-The fenced in area behind the Monastery or anywhere close to the Monastery that may be disruptive

-Construction zones

Note: people are working, studying, reflecting all over this campus.  Be courteous and try to avoid having game play conflict with the leisure of others. 

Tagging:

  • All indoor areas are “safe zones”
  • All gameplay will occur outdoors
  • Zombies must have two feet outside to tag a Human
  • Humans may stun Zombies from within a safe zone if the Zombie is outside of the safe zone
  • When a Human is tagged by a Zombie, the Human begins to “transform” and five minutes later will begin their tenure as a Zombie
    • Humans are encouraged to wear their bandanas around their neck during this time
    • Humans cannot assist either team while “transforming”
    • When a Zombie is stunned they should wear their bandana round their neck for five minutes to signal that they are temporarily out of the game
      • Stunned Zombies cannot assist their team by either pursuing Humans or acting as shields
      • Zombies cannot tag another Human until they have collected the ID card of a Human they just tagged

Assorted rules:

  • No bikes, cars roller blades, skateboards, etc. Must be on your feet.
  • Try and avoid getting too close to the streets

Missions:

  • Scheduled events during the game in which the Humans will be required to complete a certain task
  • Penalties and/or rewards will be applied to participants depending on their attendance and level of success
  • Intended to get people out of safe zones
  • You will receive mission details through your email
  • Most missions will involve Humans achieving a goal but there may be Zombie missions…

Raffle Tickets:

  • Earn raffle tickets for completing missions, tagging humans, earning post-game titles (MVH, MVZ, etc.) or by finding them around campus
  • Raffle tickets will be used for a prize drawing after the game

Common Sense & Sportsmanship:

  • Don’t look for loopholes!
  • Don’t cheat!
  • Don’t take this too seriously!
  • Make it fun for everyone!
  • It’s a GAME!

STAY SAFE. STAY ALIVE

Good Luck!

Pat
