October 1, 2016: I Hate Zombies, But I Love Parties
The best parties usually bear some resemblance to the zombie apocalypse already.
So we've got a suggestion for how to make that comparison explicit: Unleash I Hate Zombies on your next gathering, shindig, get-together, rager, dinner party, or church picnic. (We know people party in different ways; no judgment.)
Think about it. It's the perfect party game. The advantages include:
It works with up to 12 players. Contrary to what Judd Apatow movies would like you to believe, real-life parties don't usually have more than 12 people.
It's easy to learn. It's pretty much rock-paper-scissors with powers and a theme. There. We just taught you to play.
Everyone gets unique abilities – and we have it on good authority1 that even staunch non-gamers like feeling unique.
There are essentially two kinds of people in the world: People, and zombies. The game just lets them fight it out as teams for once.
You can use it as a handy way to resolve arguments or debates. Does half your crew prefer Dr. Who and the other half hanker for Firefly? No problem. Zombie it out.
It's a fun game. Parties are where people go to have fun2.
I Hate Zombies is not too complicated, so people can continue to socialize, drink responsibly, and charm cobras3 while they play.
So go get a copy of I Hate Zombies today. Whoever survives your next party will never forget the time they had.
