What boot camp is to the armed forces, humans vs zombies is to anyone that wants to stand a chance in the impending zombie apocalypse.
The weeklong game, played at over 650 universities, begins with an approximately 1:30 zombie:human ratio, and ends with a final mission. Zombies wear orange bandannas around their heads; humans, around their bulging biceps. Stunned zombies wear bandannas around their necks for ten minutes, during which they walk in shame. A zombie may "turn" a human by eating its brains out, literally.
Well, by tagging a human with its hand, a zombie may figuratively eat the human's brains, thus turning it into a zombie(after a ten-minute transformation period).
A human may stun a zombie for ten minutes by hitting it with a thrown sock or(with higher success rates)shooting it with a Nerf blaster. I myself have shot many a zombie with my trusty Maverick.
Achievements may be earned for such feats as surviving a certain number of days as a human, a day in costume, tagging a certain number of humans, tags while wearing a costume, or a lot of other cool things. Man there are some really cool things that you can do. There are over 20 achievements, depending on what school you're playing at. My personal favorite is the ZOMGWTF achievement; as a human, you hit a live zombie with a thrown Nerf dart and live to tell the tale.
HvZ has many more details and stipulations; take a look at their website if you're intrigued :)
