Humans versus Vampires

hvz

Humans Vs. Vampires (HvsV) is a new version of the popular Humans Vs. Zombies (HvZ) game. However, unlike regular HvZ games, the CSLC's HvsV game will feature foreign language elements to celebrate the fact that Bram Stoker's Dracula is one of the most widely translated texts.

Played like a giant game of tag, the gameplay is simple. Vampires must tag Humans to turn them into Vampires, who then in turn attempt to tag more humans. Humans can defend themselves using Nerf Style blasters or socks.

Over a five- to six-day period, players must survive as they walk from class to class.  There are objective-style games or missions each night of the game (capture the flag, scavenger hunt, etc.) which players must try to complete in order to earn rewards to benefit their team. The end of the game culminates in a large final mission.

The gameplay is exhilarating, the people are fun, and there are prizes!
