1:
light jacket, ripped jeans 2
Lightweight, yet it still covers most of your body

2:
Bow with 20 arrows 3
Lightweight, arrows are re-usable.

3:
Buck knife 1
Besides being usable as a weapon, it is useful in a lot of other situations, where you need to cut stuff

4:
Flashlight and the army knife 6
You can probably find extra batteries for the flashlight, and the army knife is useful in quite a few ways

5:
Van 4
Room to store found supplies in, fast enough, you can make a makeshift sleep location in the storage part.

6:
A best friend 3
Someone you can most likely trust, someone to talk to etc.

Total points used: 19

1. a.

2. b.

3. a.

4. j. + b.

5. f.

6. e.

With the last two being the best and having water purification, everything else seems superfluous.

1. clothing
a. shorts, tee shirt (1 point)

Low protection to weather and teeth but gains in speed and maneuverability

2. primary weapon
e. shotgun with 100 rounds (5 points)

Shotgun is really the only thing here that can effectively stop a Z. Unless you are really damn good with the others, even then, they might leave you screwed if you have several coming at you at once

3. secondary weapon
c. baseball bat (3 points)

Shirt, shotgun and a baseball bat. That’s right, you know what I’m going for…

BONK!

4. utility item
a.radio with 4 sets of D batteries (1 point)
d.flashlight with 4 sets of AA batteries (2 points)
j.water purification kit (5 points)

Alway need a flashlight in every zombie flick. Water purification is going to be downright necessary as well. I have one left-over point, can I spend that? Gonna spend it. I’ll take the radio

5. vehicle
b.motorcycle (gas efficient, fast, low protection) (2 points)

Could have picked an RV but where’s the fun in that? Once again speed and agility is my focus here. Plus with the shotgun, I can be this guy

6. partner
a.“that dick”- the one that is in every horror movie (1 point)

Alright Sweatie Killer, looks like it’s you and me together on this one. Hop on the back of my bike. Lets go Zombie Killing

I’m gonna assume the location pack adds 5 points. New limit is 25, friendos.


1. Clothing
B. Light jacket, ripped jeans. (2 points.)

Replace the jacket with a hockey sweater, and you’ve got what I’m wearing right now.

2. Primary Weapon
E. Shotgun with 100 rounds. (5 points.)

It’s a fucking shotgun. These things are the Master Sword of zombie flicks.

3. Secondary Weapon
C. Baseball bat. (3 points)

I don’t know, I just seem to be good with them.

4. Utility Items
E. 100 waterproof matches. (3 points.)
G. Swiss army knife. (4 points.)

Matches because I could set the baseball bat on fire (aluminum is for pussies), and a Swiss army knife because… well, it’s a Swiss army knife.

5. Vehicle
B. Motorcycle. (2 points.)

I’m going with Blue on this one – it’s helpful for drive-bys.

6. Partner
E. Survival expert – the ultimate aid against the undead. (5 points.)

My girlfriend is great with these things, so I guess I get a two-fer.

7. Location
B. Atlanta. (1 point.)

I just love Atlanta in general. I’d love to fight zombies in the Centennial Olympic Park, or maybe the Georgia Dome. Besides, I only live a few hours away.

Using the countless info from Max Brook’s Zombie Survival Guide and countless zombie movies, here’s my list:
1). A (the less for them to grab, the better)
2). D (though I’d rather fancy a .28 rimshot, since it’s easy to use & it’s ammo plentiful)
3). E (useful in a variety of ways)
4). C & E (food is paramount, as is fire)
5). B (fast, efficient, lightweight, easy to repair… need I say more?)
6). C (at least I wouldn’t be driven to hate & kill them)
Total: 20
