Two teams walk onto the field, only one makes it out alive…
Welcome to the first annual Bowl of Decay! You thought that the race to the Superbowl was brutal, wait until it’s a battle of survival between the humans and the zombies.
How it works:
You recruit four of your buddies into a 5 person team. Much like football, we’ve got a regular Season, Playoff Season and then a Big Game. In the regular Season, you and your mates will play against another team within your league. Each win or loss counts towards your stats for the Playoffs. After the 10 week period, we’ll take a break for the Holidays and when we return, the top teams in each League will play against each other until there is only one Human and one Zombie team left. Those two will go to the Bowl.
What you have to do:
Each team needs 5 individual Players on it. They need to choose their League (Humans Vs Zombies) and slot their players into their position. The Team Captain is responsible for filling out the form completely. Form link – http://goo.gl/forms/OfHEIM9xSo
We’re asking for email addresses for everyone so that in the event that your team wins, we can contact you. We will never share your email, or use it for anything but giving you a prize.
Make sure that when you choose your Team Name and Team Picture it’s something we wouldn’t be horrified to show our Grandma. (She’s a gamer Grandma.)
Teams that do not fill out the form correctly will be disqualified from the Season. We’re allowing you to edit your submissions until the Season starts, so check and make sure that you submitted the correct information.
Duplicate Teams will also be removed. Talk to each other, elect a Team Captain and let them do the work (those poor suckers).
What you could Win:
If your team takes home the Bowl of Decay Championship, we’ll send each of your team-mates a Signed Football and an exclusive, limited edition (meaning, only 5 of these shirts will ever be made by us) Bowl of Decay Champion t-shirt.
If you live in a place where getting the prize is difficult, we’ll work with the winners to do something fun.
Team Name ___Zed Heads__
Team Picture ___ link to Image file__ (Please make sure this image is public so we can pull it.)
Team League Affiliation Check Box Option Humans / Zombies
Note* Each League affiliation competes against each other. Ie. Zombies v zombies until the Bowl.
Player 1 _ Team Leader: Name (Forum / Twitter/ Handle)
Player 1_ Email Address (Required so we can notify winners)
Repeat for Players 2-5 **Update** You no longer need your teams email addresses to complete the form. However, please make sure you’ve given us your correct address so we can contact you if you win.
Each week the teams battle it out in a roll scenario much like Last Human Standing. All you have to do is sign up. We do the heavy lifting.
The winner of each match gets a Win in their Column for that game. We play a set number of weeks. At that end of the regular season, we go into playoffs. The top teams of each “League” play for the Bowl Spot. (That number will be determined by how many teams we have in each League) The winners of each game go onto the next Game in their “League” until there is 1 team left standing in each one. Those two teams will receive lesser prizes.
Depending on how many teams we have, we’ll have either one or two games per week.
The Regular season starts on October 1oth and ends on December 14th for the Holiday Break. Playoffs start January 4th, 2016 and the Bowl of Decay will be played Live on January 27, 2016. It coincides with a Backseat Driver, so we’ll make the rolls live so everyone can watch the action.
ZombieNuts Vs Zedheads
Zombie Nuts’ 5 players roll against Zedheads’ 5 players. Best rolls out of 5 determines the outcome of the game.
If there is a game tie, the two Teams will have a rematch. (ie. We’ll roll it again and whoever wins that match wins the game)
It’s not a real Undead Labs game unless Nicole can spread some carnage. So, we’ve included modifiers into the rolls.
If a player rolls a 7, they’re injured for the next game. (Meaning that the team loses that player’s roll for the next game.)
You’re thinking, ouch Nicole! But it’s okay. We’ve included some good modifiers as well.
If the player rolls a 12, They get a CLEO drop and their next game roll is an auto win. If two matched players have a CLEO drop, they will roll as normal to break the tie.
Cheerleaders – The team that has the highest number of cheerleaders in each league gets a +1 modifier to their rolls so if they roll a 7, they escape punishment. This is accomplished through hashtagging The team name / #BowlofDecay and @undeadlabs on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
It’s time to DRAFT!
