Humans vs Zombies Was Rated 19 Out Of 20

Fun 9 Out Of 10

This game is a lot of fun. You get great exercise and you get to be outside while you play it. It’s really hard to beat this type of game for fun.

The only reason why it lost a point is that there could be some trouble getting the game set up. With schools and local law enforcement against games that require you to “kill” other people due to recent killings, it may be hard to get them to agree to this type of game being played in public.

This should not discourage you from playing. Just make sure you let the right people know about it and you have permission to play it

Socializing 10 out of 10 points

This is the best type of game for socializing. You get to meet new people and have fun with them. This is a well deserved 10 points.
