What Would You Do If … Dilemmas In A Zombie Apocalypse: No. 9 – The Group Survival Dilemma

26 Apr

You’ve joined up with some other survivors. You only met them yesterday and you haven’t had time to know them properly yet. The group has set up a camp in a forest clearing and you’ve pitched your tent slightly away from the rest of them to give you a bit of privacy. You get up in early the next morning and find not only has the lookout fallen asleep but there’s a horde of zombies surging towards the camp. By some miracle, they don’t seem to have noticed you and are, instead, heading for the rest of the tents where everyone else is sleeping. If you sneak quietly away, you’ll survive but the others will be taken by surprise and they’ll be slaughtered by the swarm of undead that’s about to descend on them. If you shout a warning, you’ll alert the zombies to your presence making your successful escape much less likely but it will give the others a chance of getting away as well. What do you do?

    I’d hope I’d do the right thing!

      Me too. The only trouble is that in a zombie apocalypse doing the right thing is possibly one of the quickest ways to end up zombie chow!
