If you live in the Bay Area, you need to be prepared for all sorts of urban disasters… the most important of which is, of course, the inevitable zombie apocalypse! But what if you’re unsure of your own personal disaster preparedness training? Well, don’t worry because the Go Game has you covered:
Quite frankly, we don’t know how to build a survival kit, find fresh water, shank a vampire, OR survive an earthquake. And neither do any of our friends.
Out of this pathetic realization, an idea was born: Why don’t we design an urban disaster preparedness training that you can play like a Zombie survival game? Why not invite all of our friends to run around the Lower Haight, dodging the undead, while they learn tricks and tips to surviving urban disasters? And TA-DA! we did.
The Zombie Survival Challenge begins promptly at 6pm this Thursday night, and should only take about two hours. Afterward, all of the teams will convene at a local bar for “drinks, thunderous applause, heckling, and prizes.” Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online via Eventbrite. Proceeds from the tickets go to Project Night Night, a non-profit that assembles nightime “comfort kits” to homeless children.
This sounds like an awesome event for a great cause. And if any of you fiends attend The Zombie Survival Challenge, please leave a comment or drop me an email. We’d love to hear about your experience!
