Text transcript of video

"It will be the holiday of a lifetime? they said.

"We're all staying on the 28th floor of the best resort on the island" laughed your mate.

That was until everyone became zombies hungry for nothing but pizza. Now there's just one left, on the entire island, and a hoard of zombies breaking down the door to eat it.

But this is your pizza. It?s time to fight!

You?ll need to:

  • Find a weapon.
  • Get the pizza out of the oven.
  • Unlock the balcony door.
Before the pizza gets cold?

All the puzzles involve making lateral connections between several clue cards. For example, one clue card could contain a cipher/code and another the key to solving it. By using some pen and paper you can decode the message.

Don't worry about knowing when a puzzle is solved - trust me it's super obvious. Sometimes this is because it takes you to a website where you entered a password and it told you it was correct. Other times you'll get a piece of information that will connect to another clue.

If you get stuck players can click on the indices for the puzzle they're working on.

Wait! Remember to Snap a Selfie!

Mirror mirror on the window...

Hint 2

(Here's the link to save typing it).
Don't give up!
Once you combine the 3 images together a mirror will reverse the text. It reads:

Cut out what is missing then quench your thirst.

You'll need to find another clue that you can cut out, with scissors, and then...

Solution

(Here's the link to save typing it).
This puzzle's hard but doable if you can find what's missing. Cut it out and place it in the correct spot over the letters. When you do, you'll see a note around the outside of the object. Side note: use the cutout object, not the photo with a hole left in it.

5zombie-painting2puzzle-clue-photos
To solve the cipher carefully cut out the missing zombie and place it over the Sprite label (use the zombie itself, not the hole left in the photo). The 2 feet align to the 2 blue letter to reveal the passphrase:

Obey your hunger

sprite-puzzle-solution
1puzzle-clue-lightswitch

Hint 1

There are 4 light switches in 3 different states. What else could match this?

Zap zap...

Hint 2

Off, Half on, On, Off. Hmm... something about this feels shocking.

Solution

The light switch gives you a layout that matches the colors on the knobs:

  1. Off = Red.
  2. Half on = Yellow.
  3. On = Green.

Place the green knob in the bottom-left and the yellow one in the top-right.
The two remaining red knobs can be in either the top-left or bottom-right (quick trial and error will solve this):

Hint 1

  1. Resident Evil
  2. World War Z
  3. Hold on... what's that next movie?

Hint 2

The 3rd picture is familiar but it doesn't quite look complete. If you can work out what you could cut it out (with scissors) and see if you can overlay the shape on something.

Solution

The original painting has an additional zombie (Big Momma) on the right. Use this to solve another puzzle.
5zombie-painting
3resident-evil-stamp

Hint 1

The words will make a sentence but you won't have to brute force it. Try finding a connection with another clue.

Hint 2

Look for something else that has 15 elements in a similar layout.

Hint 3

Each of the words matches the position of one of the zombies on the postcard. Try writing these under each zombie.

Next, you'll need to work out the order of the zombies/words.

Partial Solution

Once you've matched the words on the stamp, to the zombies on the postcard, you'll need to use the Base Jump kit to find the sequence.
The bottom zombie, on the Base jump kit, represents the 1st zombie/word in the sentence. The next one up is the 2nd and so on.
When you have the sentence try waiting for a sign that you're on the right track...

Solution

This puzzle's quite hard! There's a hidden message on the stamp but it's all jumbled up. To read it you'll need to connect 2 other clues:

  • The zombie pile, on the base jump kit, shows the sequence of a message.
  • The zombie postcard connects each zombie image with one of the words.
The final message is:

We won a prize so went for walk to the beach and ate brain pizza.

If you connect this with another clue it will give you a password...
4puzzle-clue-sprite

Hint 1

You're unlikely to solve this cipher by looking for patterns. Instead look for another clue to help.

Hint 2

zombie-eye-hint

Hint 3

Don't give up! This puzzle's hard but doable if you can find what's missing. Cut it out and place it in the correct spot over the letters. When you do you'll see a note around the outside of the object.

Side note: use the cutout object, not the photo that's left with a hole left in it.

5zombie-painting

Hint 1

Nothing seems to be missing from this painting...

Hint 2

You'll need to find what's missing from this painting then cut it out.

Then overlay it on another clue to reveal a secret message.

Hint 3

Don't give up! This puzzle's hard but doable if you can find what's missing. Cut it out and place it in the correct spot over the letters. When you do you'll see a note around the outside of the object.

Side note: use the cutout object, not the photo with the hole in it.

Solution

The middle photo is missing the red zombie.

6postcard-clue

Hint 1

There are 16 zombies.

No wait... there's only 15...

Hint 2

Look for something else that has 15 elements in a similar pattern.

Hint 3

Each of the zombies matches one of the words written on the stamp. You'll need to solve another puzzle to work out the correct order.

Solution

On the postcard, one zombie is missing from the grid, in the top right slot.

On the stamp, one word is missing from the grid, in the top right slot.

If you rotate the two cards, to match this missing grid item, you get a cipher solution.
7colored-knobx

Hint 1

Guessing this one is possible but not recommended (unless you like frustration...) Try looking for a pattern of four things to help place the knobs.

Hint 2

The chef recommends cooking different colored chili peppers in the correct order. If only there was enough light to see what's going on...

Solution

The light switch gives you a layout that matches the colors on the knobs:

  • Off = Red.
  • Half on = Yellow.
  • On = Green.
1puzzle-clue-lightswitchaligned-knobs

What happens when I solved it?

Once all four symbols align the oven is 'unlocked'.

Since there's not sci-fi technology embedded in your printout just suspend your disbelief like you're watching a Jason Statham movie. Go on - grab that pizza!
8puzzle-clue-sign

Hint 1

Hi,
It's Elliott here (the chap who designed the game). You've found me out... I'm not the world's best speller. In fact, I need to proofread everything like 4 times before hitting publish.
However... in this case, I know I've spelled the sign correctly.
Enjoy!

Hint 2

Don't give up! English is a strange language:

  • For
  • Four
  • Fore
All sound the same when spoken.
Try matching these to a word puzzle.

Solution

This is a phonetic clue which hints at reading a message out loud and listening to how it sounds, rather than its spelling.
When you apply this to the words on the postage stamp there are four words that have double meanings.

  • Won = 1
  • To = 2
  • For = 4
  • Ate = 8
To get the correct order you'll first need to arrange the words into a sentence. Try looking at the postcode for this.
9base-jumping-backpack

Hint 1

Those zombies start at the bottom and climb their way upward over each other (like in a movie you may have seen...).

Hint 2

Each zombie matches a word - just you need to work out which word! Look for another pattern matching sequence.

Solution

This puzzle's quite hard! There's a hidden message on the stamp but it's all jumbled up. To read it you'll need to connect 2 other clues:

  • The zombie pile, on the base jump kit, shows the sequence of a message.
  • The zombie postcard connects each zombie image with one of the words.

The image is a QR code (what's that??).
Scan the image using a QR reader app on your phone. It will take you to this website where you'll find a safe.

The password is (Spoiler)

Once you arrive at the website there'll be a locked safe which you can enter a passcode into. The answer, along with how to get it, is in the solution box for the Zombie Signpost.
11targets-puzzle

Winning the Game

Cut out and build the zombie targets by following this guide.
Set the up, like a shooting range, outside the door you've just unlocked.
Take turns shooting them with a NERF gun, paper balls, or other objects.
Once they're all dead you win the game! Take a selfie with the victory cards:

A1-We-Crushed-It

For Competitive Players

Compete for who can score the most points. A good game is NERF from 10 paces but you can make up any rules you like:

  • Everyone gets 3 shots.
  • Playoffs if there's a tie.
  • Distance gets greater for playoffs.
  • Or make 2 teams where everyone gets a shot and the team score is what matters.
