Instructional Video: Zombies in Plain English

Most excellent video on surviving the zombiepocalypse.

The passage below gave me ideas for a zombie game:

Let's have a survey - what would your strategy be for surviving the onslaught of the undead in Silver Spring? Here's a few rules & guidelines for this exercise:

* The Zombies you’d be running from are the archetypical slow, plodding undead made famous in George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead. You wouldn’t have to worry about any of these newfangled sprinting zombies à la 28 Days Later. Sure, it’s easier to avoid the slow ones, but what they lack in speed they make up for in numbers and persistence.

* You would have a brief window of time--let’s say thirty minutes--to gather supplies and reinforce your preferred hideout before downtown is completely overrun by the living dead.

* Your hideout must be located in an area of Silver Spring inside the Beltway, preferably in downtown. In this scenario, the roads are already jammed and you won’t have the ability to reach any SSINO areas.

* The National Guard won’t be coming to the rescue anytime soon, if ever. Be sure you are prepared for the long haul.
