Event description

Description

Urban Nightmare is a Megagame that explores how a fictional state in the US copes with the zombie apocalypse. Teams of players will represent the state government and city mayors, police and emergency services. They will work together to prevent the zombie hordes from devestating the cities and overrunning the state (...or not!)

This will be a megagame like no other. It will be run simulatenously with other games around the UK and globally. Each game will represent a different state and there will aso be teams representing the pentagon and the president's office who will be able to dispatch assistance to where it is needed most.

The Cambridge game is set in the fictional US state of Wabash.

Will your city survive the ultimate Urban Nightmare?


FAQs

If I have booked tickets for a team as a group of friends can we assign the roles amongst ourselves?

Megagames are great to play with friends and we are more than happy for players on a team to decide amongst themselves who will take on what role in the team. We reserve the right to assign roles to players purely in the cases where players are unable to agree amongst themselves.

I want to book a ticket just for myself rather than a whole team. Is that OK?

Absolutely! Megagames are great ways to meet people. Playing as part of a team with people you have never met before can also bring out new strength in everyone on the team.

I have never played a megagame before - is there a specific role that I should play?

Your best guide is to ask yourself what you enjoy and what you are good at. If you enjoy talking to people and negotiating then Mayor, Deputy Mayor or Press Officer would be perfect for you. If you enjoy something which has more game mechanics and don't mind a few simple rules to learn then Head of Operations or Deputy Chief of Emergency Services roles would suit you. If you like strategic thinking and also a little bit of politics then the Chief of Emergency Services and Chief of Police are perfect. If you have any questions about the roles please don't hesitate to ask.

Is there an age limit to enter the event?

In general, the minumum age limit is 18 years of age. However, the game does not contain any themes or images that would be unsuitable for young adults. For players younger than 18 we have to be satisfied that they will be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult throughout the day. If you are buying tickets for someone who is below 18 please contact us so that we can confirm with you that they will accompanied by a guardian throughout the day.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

There is no reserved parking for the event. It is possible (but not easy) to find some on-road parking along Mill Road. However, if you are coming by car we would suggest you use city centre parking or park-and-ride. St Philip's Church Centre is approximately 20 minutes walk from the city centre and central bus station. If you are coming by train, the venue is only 15 minutes walk from Cambridge station.

Is my registration/ticket transferable?

Yes, if you are unable to make it to the event you can give your ticket to someone else to attend in your place.

What restrictions on accessibilty does the venue have?

The venue is fully accessible for wheelchair users. Some of the game will be played in rooms that are on the upper floor. There is a lift to the upper floor but it is slow and we would suggest that if you have accessibility requirements you may wish to consider taking on a role in your team that does not need to travel between floors. We can offer a very limited number of parking spaces at the rear of the venue for anyone who has accessibility concerns.

Is food availble at the venue?

Yes, there will be snacks and cans of drink as well as plenty of bottles of watter. There is also a convenience store a short walk from the venue.

Can I bring alcohol to the event?

The venue does not allow consumption of alcohol. Any guests bringing alcohol to the venue or consuming alcohol at the event will be asked to leave.

Can I get a refund?

If you have bought a ticket and find that you cannot attend and cannot find anyone who can attend in your place then please contact us. If there is more than a week before the event then we are generally happy to issue a refund as it is likely we can resell your ticket. If there is less than a week before the event then we will do our best to resell lthe ticket and we are happy to issue a refund if we are able to do so.
