Run for your life or play the living dead in this live action all night game A hoard of the living dead will terrorize San Fulgencio on the night of Saturday, May 28th. This disastrous event will take place from 11pm, but is really a game called ‘Last Day Zombie’, which will involve more than 400 people, including players, actors and organisers. The game is not a competition as the only aim is to survive. During the night the participants, divided into zombies and survivors, will run around the main streets of San Fulgencio, including ‘invasions’ of different buildings and public spaces. The players must try to survive the whole night by passing a series of tests, until they can be evacuated. The first one to finish all the tests and arrive will be evacuated, making them the winner. That night, the streets will become the scene of races, chases and searches for clues, when the adrenaline pumps as fast as the ‘virus’ which the participants must avoid catching so they do not turn into zombies. There will be 15 to 20 tests to overcome during the night and the survivors who reach the end of the game having completed them all will win. The objective is not to be caught by the zombies and to find the vaccines that will help them survive. Last Day Zombie has already...
