Travelling with Zombie Fight or Flight and Other Blogs

With both Halloween and our Kickstarter for Zombie Fight or Flight coming up, our team members are taking every opportunity to give people a chance to try out the game in person!

Check out Emily Martin‘s travels through Washington State with a pack of zombie cards here or follow her pictorially on instagram @zombiefightorflight.

Mediators in the Lower Mainland (BC) can join the Mediate BC Mediators’ Lounge in New Westminster this Thursday (Oct. 20) where Amanda Semenoff and Joan Braun will be introducing the game and discussing applications for conflict resolution. More information is available here.

And for anyone interested in blogging, the CoRe Conflict Resolution Writers Group is joining forces with Mediate BC on Friday, Oct. 21 at Waves (100 – 900 Howe St.). We’ll be there from 10:00-12:00 to learn about blogging and create blog posts. Immediately afterwards, Wendy Lakusta and Sharon Sutherland will be looking for volunteers to play the game for a short video on collaborative games for Conflict Resolution Week.

Can’t make it to any of our planned events? Send us a note at zombieforf@gmail.com and we’ll see if we can find another time or place that works for you.

Negotiation Skills for the Zombie Apocalypse

Join us on Halloween at Cecil Green House, UBC for a chance to learn and practice skills for negotiating with those folks who just don’t respond to usual methods of persuasion.

Zombie Fight or Flight originated from the desire to build an easy to learn, quick to play, collaborative card game with applications for negotiation training. We had this particular course in mind when we were brainstorming (in a non-zombie way) game mechanisms that could mimic difficult negotiations.

If you’re interested in advanced negotiation training, curious about Zombie Fight or Flight, or both, join us on Halloween at Cecil Green House, UBC for a chance to learn and practice skills for negotiating with those folks who just don’t respond to usual methods of persuasion.  For more information, click here.
