Zedtown Asia: Battle For Singapore final briefing

Just a precious few sleeps until Battle for Singapore. Here’s everything you need to know and bring on Saturday – all the better to play your part as the world burns.

THE STORY

Singapore is in a State of Emergency. The Zombies have almost taken over. The Government has shut down travel into and out of Singapore and established the Quarantine Zones, independent areas of safety from the Zombie threat. But the Quarantine Zones have been going quiet, and the Government has said nothing. Is it just the undead, or is there something else at work? Regardless, here in Quarantine Zone 6 we are safe, with the Factional Leadership of Red, Gold and Blue. You are safe here. You have nothing to worry about.

REGISTRATION

Registration takes place at 11.30am for the day game and 6pm for the night game at gate 3 of the Sports Hub.

Once at Registration, all you need to do is line up in the Faction you wish to join and collect your dog tag. Then, using the Zedtown app (details below), you will be able to scan your dog tag to register yourself into the game.

After you are registered, make your way into the Stadium and prepare for the game. We recommend stretching and sending messages to your loved ones. It may be the last time you see them alive…

The games itself will begin with a briefing about an hour after registration opens, with the final evacuation and prizes occurring at about 4pm and 10pm.

PERSONAL ZEDTOWN ACCOUNTS

As mentioned, those with an iPhone or Android will be able to download the app from their respective stores. Once that’s done, you will be prompted to either sign in, or register an account.

This allows you to scan your faction dog tag: then… voila! You’re all set!

Note: Those without iPhone or Android but a smart phone can still access the web app via playzedtown.com.

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

Across Singapore, flesh-eating Zombies are devouring ordinary citizens like lunchtime $3 cai fan in a CBD food court. As a Survivor, the last thing you want is to be on their menu. Teamwork is key, so you’ll have three Factions to choose from, each with a different colour, skillset and objectives—Red Faction (Security), Gold Faction (Medical) and Blue Faction (Logistics).

GAME MAP

Please stay within the playable game zone at all times. Registration and induction will take place at gate 3 of the Sports Hub.

(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

Medics are on site and will be set up on the main playing field of the stadium, and are clearly marked. Marshalls will also be roaming the, and can make contact with the medics if required.

(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 Stadium 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. For the avoidance of doubt, we use 85fps as a maximum for ‘stock’ blasters.
