    Creature I've been eaten by zombies

    Last night a bunch of us, including [MENTION=71]Donachiel[/MENTION] and [MENTION=76]Zombie Mastermind[/MENTION] ventured into the centre of Manchester for the 2.8 Hours Later citywide zombie chase game.

    It's basically a treasure hunt type affair, you're given an armband and a map and have to find 'survivors' who usually act out a little role play and give you your next grid reference. There are also zombies to navigate around, some sluggish undead shufflers and some more like the 28 coffees later speedy dead bastards variety.

    To my surprise we really did end up right in the centre of Manchester on a Friday night running about like dicks trying to avoid people dressed like zombies trying to grab us. To be honest you get so involved avoiding zombies you barely even register the drunken revellers gawking, wondering what the fuck is going on. They stage a few tasks for you to accomplish, and they rent out some buildings so some of it is actually indoors with zombies trying to grab you.

    If they do get you, and nearly all of us got caught at some point, you get marked on your hand with a pen that shows up under UV light. When we eventually reached the end destination, after about 2.8 hours, you go through a poly-tunnel and are scanned by CDC officials in white overalls and face-masks. If you show up any 'infection' in the UV light you are herded into a tent where some dolly birds use facepaints to make you up like a zombie before you head into the bar and zombie disco for a few cups of ale.

    It was a good fun night out, lots of people in fancy dress and stuff. You're sent out in groups of six to eight, but there were literally hundreds of people wandering round Manchester with the armbands on, some lost. You run into other groups all the time and team up for a while then split up again and try different routes to get to the checkpoints. Did leave us all wanting to have another pop at shooting the zombies rather than just running away from them. Morningstarr* vs. Zombies | The Morningstarr*

    Earl, it sounds like slight fun if you are that way inclined but I'd rather save my juice for the day when real zombies are walking round. Cambridge.

    Fake brain-eaters in Madchester does nothing for me.

    It was good practice for the impending apocalypse though.
