Welcome zombie blog walkers and internet shamblers! This post is a special one, made for the “2012 Virtual Zombie Walk” hosted by zombieseverywhere.org Undead aficionados are joining their bony, fetid hands for one day only, in celebration of all things zombie. You can see a full list of the blog walk (and follow the tour yourself) at this bottom of this page.
For my own contribution, I’d like to highlight a drinking game I created for my gamebook, INFECTED. It’s Friday, it’s zombies, lets adult this thing up and make it a zombie stumble. You can play the book by yourself, seeing if you have what it takes to survive a full-on apocalypse, but it’s a hell of a lot of fun with a group too. The full rules have a permanent home on my page, but for those just visiting, the quick and dirty version is below:
1) Load INFECTED on your ipad, tablet, ereader, etc.
2) Pass the book in a circle, each person reading aloud until you reach a decision point, and decide as a group what path to take. Narrator has final say for that choice.
3) Chug every time you kill a zombie, take a shot every time you die.*
4) Try to survive.
That’s it! Enjoy. Annnnnd please be responsible.
*If you’re not of legal drinking age, chug Mountain Dew (Code Red) and take shots of hot sauce. Trust me, whoever’s parents are hosting the slumber party will love this idea.
If you’re into parties, this is a great way to start one. And what better season to give it a go than right before Halloween? Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the zombie walk!
PS — Not into parties? Take the high road here.

Hey… that’s creative!
Awesome post! I wanna host a party just to try it out!
Good luck with the gamebook, it sounds like a blast!
I’d love for you to stop by my Walk’s Carmen Jenner Author Book Me! for a Short Story and Character Interview! Happy Shambling! =D
Thanks, Carmen. You really should — reading aloud is a lost art and this game night was a lot of fun. We did it for my book release party!
PS — making my way down the list, so I’ll “see” you soon 🙂
Here for the blogger zombie walk. Good luck with Infected.
I’d love to have your opinion on my zombie post + there are several cool things to win as well (Amazon Gift Card, Halloween board game and a screenplay). They forgot to put me on the linky, so I really hope you can stop by 😉
Greetings from a fellow author and screenwriter 🙂
What a great idea! And a brilliant marketing idea too. Let’s get hammered and read! Oh, wait you’re supposed to drink while reading, not before reading. Have fun zombie stumbling!
I’ve been known to say that I wouldn’t mind surviving the zombie apocalypse drunk, now I can practice! Have fun zombie walking! Jet
Veey creative and cool idea. Thanks for sharing the zombie love.
Great idea! Now I want to get with my friends and play this…
If you do, drop me a line and let me know how it went. Thanks for stopping by!
