HvZ Super Saturday (Part 2)

I remember my first time coming to a college campus as clear as day.  The memories that stayed the strongest are the visual details of the school. I can still see the warm light of the lanterns shining outward as twilight hits the campus.  The green, neatly trimmed grass covering the serving as a resting place for students as they have quick conversations before heading off to their homes. The faint notes of a guitar echo in the background, adding to the soothing ambiance of the college. Walking back from my classes, it's the perfect atmosphere to relax, engage new academic peers, and to foster a culture of creativity.

Humans vs Zombies, or HvZ, has flourished in the college community.  HvZ is a great way to get people outside, interacting with each other and relieving stress.  College campuses are beautiful, and HvZ lets the players explore the terrain and see their school in a whole new light. The localization of most of the players helps keep the community tight, allowing for games to persist for varying periods of time and for players to have easy access to one another.  Not to mention that running away from zombies, or chasing down humans, is a great way to relieve some tension from all the hard work of studies and other college activities.

Bay Area Nerf Exclusive: 9/9/13 Blaster Confirmed!

Hey everyone, I just got some breaking news on some blasters we've all had our eyes on lately. This picture was messaged over to us and I had to share it to you guys. Check out the picture and more after the break!

HvZ Super Saturday (Part 1)

A cool summer breeze sweeps through the city of San Francisco. The streets are buzzing with activity as people go about their normal routines. The city is particularly busy today, given that it's Saturday and everyone has some free time to spare. Some choose to spend the day with loved ones. Others opt to run errands and take care of the tasks forgotten during the workweek. No matter the person, the city stands as a testament to human ingenuity and the liberation provided by free choice.

However, there is another type of denizen roaming San Francisco.  A creature compelled by instinct, only able to respond to urges beyond their control. They hide among us, former shadows of the men and women they used to be. All humanity has drained from their eyes, leaving behind blank windows to the soul behind. Their one purpose in life is to consume, turn the rest of a world so full of life into something as meaningless as they have become.  The city can fall, and as it goes, so too does the rest of humanity.
