About 230 people at the University of Wisconsin-Madison recently took part in a "Humans versus Zombies" role-playing game in which a team of zombies tried to tag members of a team of humans. The humans, in turn, could fight off the zombies with Nerf guns. Apparently, some students or faculty at Wisconsin can't tell the difference between a Nerf gun and a real gun, since police twice responded to reports of people carrying guns. A police spokesman blamed those playing the game for wasting police resources.
