New Game - Zombie Ball/Looking for Housing

Today was a busy day but in the end something amazing was formed. I was down at the beach with my ultimate team and a few other people for a barbecue/party thing. In any case, we had a volleyball and started juggling it around when an old game I used to play with my soccer team came into my head.

The premise was simple, everyone stands in a circle and takes turns juggling the ball, once the juggle count gets to five you are allowed to grab the ball with your hands. At this point in the game the object is to throw the ball and hit someone to get them out. If they catch the ball it is considered a pass and they get the chance to hit someone. From this basic set of rules more were added and eventually Zombie Ball was created. I will be posting the full rules on here tomorrow, the game is great for 5 or more players. All you need is a ball and some open space and you are set.

In other news me and my friend went looking for some housing today for the upcoming school year and found some nice places. The first place we looked at was very utilitarian, two bedrooms, a washer and dryer, a bathroom with a shower and a kitchen with a fridge, sink, dishwasher and electric stove. The guy renting it was super nice but we are pretty sure this pair of girls will get it because A. They are girls and B. In the eyes of renters all adolescent men are partying drunkards who will play loud music and break stuff.

In any case we have our fingers crossed for that one but it does not look too bright. The second property was much the same but had a larger dining area as a plus, but a washer and dryer in the middle of the kitchen as a minus. We will be checking out a few more places but for a first try at renting a house we are pretty pleased with ourselves.

Zombie Ball rules will be up soon, along with a new puzzle :)


  1. Zombie Ball, huh? Sounds like fun! Hope you get that place to live in, too!

  2. Indeed Zombie Ball rules. Im waiting for the next puzzle!

  3. your game reminds me of a similar game we used to play as children here. We would juggle the ball using only our feet and points would be awarded for scoring goals in the most impressive way. Good luck with finding a house.
