What better way to get college students to bond than by making them play a highly strategic but non-contact zombie apocalypse game? That was precisely the thinking of Kent State Navigators, a Christian student group at Kent State University, when it put together this game.

What's great about this zombie apocalypse game is that it requires players to play in teams of five, with each 'zombie' in the team given a special role to aid the team's survival. Survivors of the apocalyptic in-game scenario are treated to one of the few foods proven to hold the power to bring the undead back to life, namely Chipotle Burrito. Players are also rewarded with 300 points that can be redeemed using the university's FLASHperks rewards program.

This zombie apocalypse game is a great example of a fun and socially focused campus event, while its collaboration with a rewards program is an innovative addition.
