Zombie Apocalypse Game
Printable Scavenger Hunt

The Zombie Apocalypse game scavenger hunt comes with everything you need to set up and play.  Find out which of your friends have what it takes to survive the zombie apocalypse and which ones are sitting zombie bait!  

How is the Zombie Apocalypse Game played?

Can you and your friends survive a zombie attack?  In this zombie scavenger hunt players have to answer questions to test their zombie survival knowledge, each correctly answered question leads to the next clue and the next eventually leading to the safe haven (this is wherever you decide the end is located) .  The only goal of the game is to make it to the safe haven without become a zombie.

How do players become zombies?

At the beginning of the game one of the players is designated the first zombie.  You can decide this by drawing sticks or however you would like.  The zombie’s job is to search the party area for the hidden zombie cards.  Each Zombie card has one of the players name on it, so once the zombie finds that players card all they have to do is touch them and that player becomes a zombie.  Once someone is a zombie they join the search for other zombie cards.  The only goal of the zombies is to make sure no one makes it to the safe haven as a human.


How is this Zombie Apocalypse Game set up?

Once you download the scavenger hunt you follow the instructions and print out the clue and answer cards.  You will also print out the clue locator sheet.  This sheet is a list numbered 1-50.  This is where you write in all the different hiding places for the clues.  12 of them will be used to designate the clue hiding places, the others are decoys.

Decide where you want to hide all your pieces and fill in the sheet.  On the corner of each clue card that you need to hide is a number.  This number will tell you which place on the clue locator sheet you need to hide the clue.  For example if the question card has the number 13 on the corner then that mean you need to hide that clue is whatever place you designated the number 13 on your clue locator sheet.  So if you decided number 13 was going to be mailbox you write that on your clue locator sheet and then you hide clue number 13 in the mailbox.   The clue without a number is not hidden, that is the first clue and it will be given to players to start the game.

Sample Clue

This is a sample clue that players would receive in the game.  Players would read the question and decide together which answer they believe is the correct one. 

So if they all decided that number 45 was the right answer they would look on their clue locator to discover what place is listed as number 45, then they would go search there for their next clue.  They will either find the next clue there or a warning telling them they chose wrong and to try again.

What about the zombie cards?

The zombie cards are also hidden, but the are hidden more like easter eggs – sporadically throughout the hunt area.  Some people have chosen to create maps or clues to lead the zombies, but this is not necessary.  You don’t want to make it too easy for the zombies to find all the cards because the game could be over before it even gets a chance to begin.  Make it a challenge to find the cards because remember for every zombie card found that is going to be one more zombie looking for the zombie cards.

What age range is suitable to play this zombie Apocalypse game?

This game is great for teens and adults.  The contents of some of the questions is a bit violent for younger players – I mean it is the zombie apocalypse, these aren’t pretty times.

How many players can play this zombie apocalypse game?

I would say between 8 – 15.  If you have more players you may want to set up two or more different teams.  This can be done by printing out as many sets of question cards as there are teams and hiding the question cards in a separate place for each team.  You will just need to give each team a different clue locator sheet with the hiding locations changed for each team.  The default locations can stay the same.


How long does it take to play the zombie apocalypse hunt?

It really depends on how many players are playing, how well the zombie cards are hidden, and how smart the players are, and how big your playing area is ( is this being played in your house, back yard, or across a whole neighborhood or town?  )  I would say a short game is 35 minutes, longer games last an hour or two.

Do I need special paper to print out my zombie apocalypse game?

No, you can print this scavenger hunt out on regular print paper or card stock.  It is up to you.
