I find it ridiculous that they've been there awhile and no one ever looked in the barn or heard the zombies making noise. Back to the question, I find the host's rules a bit over the top in a zombie situation. No guns at all? They even took the crossbow I think. I would want everyone trained and armed in case of sneak attack or if they are just off by themselves under a tree, etc. I'd tell the old geezer to get stuffed and move on. We live under enough retard's rules IRL. I'm not putting up with them in a SHTF situation.
