Alternate Rules

From Humans vs. Zombies Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The rules for Humans vs. Zombies were originally created at Goucher College with no intention of being used at other locations. These Goucher Style Rules have since been refined and are used as the default for games all over the world. If you are unfamiliar with the Humans vs. Zombies we suggest that you start with the Goucher Style rules.

All games, however, are expected to make modifications to the default rules to suit their individual needs. No two games are the same, and no set of rules is correct for every situation. Most of the modifications organizers make are minor, some change the game considerably. All are welcomed by the Humans vs. Zombies community. This is a collection of those modifications.

If you are interested in creating your own rule set, you should read through the rule section of the game guide as well.


This is a list of rule sets that stand as complete alternatives to the Goucher Style Rules. They are similar enough to be called Humans vs. Zombies and may be used in place of the default rules.

If you wish to add your own alternate rules, take a look at our Alternate Rules Template. Then add it to the list below in the applicable section.
