What is Zombie Tag?

Zombie Tag is a survival game of tag, where human players attempt to survive increasingly large numbers of zombies.

Zombies multiply by tagging humans, turning them into zombies. Participants wear a black t-shirt over a white t-shirt. Humans will remove their black shirt and reveal their white shirt when they become zombies. 

The objective for survival is to reach all of the safe-zone checkpoints. Winners successfully reach all of the checkpoints, within a defined period of time, without having been turned.
