In case you missed either session at Gamecamp, Zombie LARP is an absurd amount of fun. Roleplaying, costume, most of the things that make many nervous about LARP - are entirely optional unless you want to go there.
But that's the key - if you want to. At its most basic: it's running around shooting at zombies with foam dart guns before inevitable death. I mean, really? What's not to love?
The version played at Gamecamp was a little stripped down from how it normally operates. Survivors at Zombie LARP games I've been to can survive being tagged by a zombie 3 times, at Gamecampo it was only once. I've played with additional rules bolted on for different character archetypes you might find hanging around a Zombie Apocalypse, if you want to go further than yer' basic Survivor. Some of those can use some of the other classic means of defeating the evil dead: fireaxes, baseball bats, machetes, fire extinguishers... (Recreated in foam, but looking pretty good in the half-light of a zombie-infested hallway...)
But even in ultra-shortened form; it was, as ever, ace.
- So, I was a little too busy to tweet. But I didn't die, which puts me 1 from 4 for survival in Zombie LARP...And it was such fun, they ran it again later...
