I decided to join in on the dorm’s Humans vs. Zombies game. Only two teams are involved in the game – the team of Humans and the team of Zombies. The Zombie team is victorious if they can change the Humans into the living dead. In this game, Humans succeed by depriving Zombies of food or completing the last mission successfully. Anyone who wants to be a human really gets into their roll. Some players alter their toy guns to shoot farther, faster or more accurately. Some people take it to the next level, even carrying around a grappling hook or thermal night vision goggles.
Many “missions” happen after dark, so you have to be able to see the zombies coming. The thermal night vision goggles are very useful for that, and many people can make it far into the game by utilizing their ability to see well at night. It just happens that he is the person who brings along a grappling hook on each mission, although he has never used it. I’m not really sure whether the night vision goggles are actually a factor. That isn’t the point. It’s really about getting into the moment, believing you are about to die and having to save the world. It’s about having a great time!
