In the Land of the Rotting

So, Zombies! Love them, Hate them, you all have to admit that it is in our geeky ways to hunt them down and remove their heads. With the rise of popularity of shows like Walking Dead, there can not be any doubt that theses rotting meat bags are here to stay. Hell, even Leicester City Council has admitted its ‘not ready’ for zombie attack!! Only in your present Geek Culture can that be taken… errmm ‘Seriously’?

Dear… whatever your name was…

Last year I got introduced to a “Game” which I thought, well bluntly, was NOT A GAME!
