A huge thank you to Hybrid World Adelaide for having us and everyone who played Zedtown: The Divided City in Adelaide!

This was our first game in Adelaide and with 200 players taking control of the Adelaide University I’m sure we’ll be back. Over four hours the players battled with government agents, rogue revolutionaries and the living dead with just 11 survivors making it out of the evac zone alive.

We saw lots of players with cameras and GoPros running around on the day – if you’ve taken any footage, we’d love to see it and put it here. Contact us (you can also share galleries to our Facebook page) and show us what you got!

We will be announcing more Zedtown games soon so keep an eye on our site and like us on Facebook to find out what other madness we have in store.

We’re always trying to make Zedtown bigger and better – you can help us by filling out the feedback form below. It’ll only take a couple of minutes and it helps us learn where to improve and gives us demographic information that makes it easier for us to find great venues and sponsors.

See you soon!

Hybrid World Adelaide Final Briefing

Just a precious few sleeps until Hybrid World Adelaide’s Zedtown: The Divided City. Here’s everything you need to know and bring on Saturday – all the better to play your part as the world burns.

THE STORY

The world lives in fear of two super powers on the brink of Mutually Assured Destruction. In the back alleys of The Divided City, the East and West fight a covert information war in pursuit of two things: Control and Survival.

WHAT TO BRING

At the bare minimum, you’ll need to bring the following:

  • Some kind of foam dart blaster, or some rolled-up socks.
  • A good pair of running shoes.

We recommend you bring the following to fully enjoy Zedtown:

  • Water and snacks to help last out the day.
  • A smartphone to access our dedicated app. A battery extender is also a good idea.
  • Extra ammo for your blaster. We provide some ammo drops, and there’s often lots to scavenge but preparation aids survival!
  • Anything else you think would be fun! We’ve had people bring extra zombie make-up, secondary zombie costumes, walkie talkies, automated turret blasters, banners for forts. Use your imagination!

HOW SHOULD I DRESS?

However you want! That said, we’re going with a Cold War, Spy vs Spy theme. So overcoats with turned up collars, Cambridge spy-chic, or Eastern Bloc peasant. Think early 80s America or Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

Red Faction? Think Soviet.
Blue Faction? You’re Western Bloc.

GAME MAP

Please stay within the playable game zone at all times. Registration and induction will take place at Union Hall, Adelaide University, North Terrace.

(Please note, faction bases are not listed on the map. This is intentional. We’ll be pushing the location of individual bases to each faction member via our app when the game begins. It’s up to you to find the others!)

IF SOMEONE IS HURT

St Johns Ambulance is on site and will be set up next at the Zombie Hub at Union Hall.

(Also, this is a good time to remember that part of the terms of our ticket sales is that we all play at our own risk, so try not to do something crazy that will get yourself hurt!)

RESPECT THE VENUE

Our players are generally so good at cleaning up after themselves, please keep it up. Trashing the University is going to be one of the quickest ways we get kicked out of the venue and not be invited back.

NO MODDED BLASTERS

We’ve spoken about this at length on the blog, in the rules and on Facebook but as a final remember performance-enhancing modifications are not allowed at Zedtown. Only purely cosmetic non-mechanical/non-internal mods are allowed. If you’re concerned your blaster may not pass this ruleset talk to a mod and bring a stock out-of-box blaster as a backup. Click for more information.

Zedtown is coming to Adelaide!
