"Mature" meaning appropriate and fun for individuals in their early to mid-20s.
My girlfriend's birthday is next week and she's decided to have friends over at her place in lieu of going out this year. In the interest of spicing things up (and differentiating this from one of our regular hangouts) she's decided to make it zombie apocalypse themed. Guests are encouraged to dress up and we'll have zombie inspired decorations, snacks, drinks, and music.
We'd also like to have a couple games (drinking games and otherwise) that at least loosely relate, but that's where we're running into trouble. We think it would be fun to have a game with teams of survivors and zombies (perhaps with the survivors "turning into" zombies as the game progresses?) but that's as far as we've gotten. Google searches are returning stuff like "turn the lights off and have everybody scare each other!" and other games geared towards kid's birthday parties, so this seemed like a perfect challenge for Mefites. Some points to keep in mind:
-Should incorporate the "Zombie Apocalypse" theme somehow but it doesn't have to be extremely strict (so non-zombie themed games can be adapted)
-Both drinking and non-drinking games are welcome
-Games that accommodate larger groups are preferred (10+ people) but games for smaller groups are definitely welcome as well
-Most guests will be early to mid 20s and college educated
-Any required materials/props are fine but we do have a finite budget
-Board games aren't preferred but they may be ok if they're really awesome and easily obtainable (ex found on Amazon)
-Both team and free-for-all games are welcome
In the interest of keeping this question on track, please refrain from offering suggestions for other aspects of the party (decorations, costumes, food, etc). If you have a really good idea in that realm I'd love to hear it, but please just send me a Mefi mail message instead.
Thank you so much in advance!
