This game involves the ultimate "It"--a hideous, groaning zombie whose goal is to clutch...er, tag...his victims.
This game is thrilling but depending upon the zombie mask it can be frightening so we wouldn't play it with very little ones.

Outside, rope off a circular area, or lay down some sweatshirts in a circle, and be prepared to yell "out-of-bounds!" to your blindfolded zombie. Make sure it's a trip-proof playing area. Inside, you can play in a large rec room.
This game follows the classic rules of Marco Polo. "It" wears the rubber mask (with blindfold) and hands. Everyone has to stay within the circle while he wanders around with his arms stretched out in front, zombie style (this also keeps him from crashing). When "It" groans, all the players must groan back and extend their arms. This is how the zombie zeroes in on his victims. When a player gets tagged, she becomes the next "It" and gets to wear the mask.
