Zombie Tag is a great game for Halloween or any time you need to bring a little life (or death) to a party.
It’s also a great team-building game because the group has to work together to tag the other players.
Make it a Book SmARTS activity and Read: A Zombie’s Guide to the Human Body (for Older Kids)
Object of the game: Turn everyone in the group into a seething mass of brain-eating zombies.
Number of Players: 10 or more
What You Need: Plenty of unencumbered space.
How it’s played: One person starts out as the Zombie and walks around the room in a zombie-like fashion repeating the phrase, “One of us, one of us.” The other players try to avoid being touched (or tagged) by the zombie.
The non-zombie players CANNOT RUN, but must walk quickly to avoid being touched by the “un-dead.”
When someone is tagged by a Zombie, they link arms with the original boys and ghouls. With a slack-jawed, blank-eyed expression, they join in on the “One of us,” refrain and try to tag others.
Every time someone is tagged, they turn into a Zombie, join the group and continue the chant. All Zombies must remain linked as they work together to tag the remaining “humans.” This gets increasingly more difficult and fun!
