Hi all…

A friend was kind enough to lend me the Walking Dead board game…which was pristine,all cards still celophane

My son and myself had a couple of games today….

He won both…and loved it!!!…I lost both and didn’t!!!

Its a very simple game…

You start the game with 1 main character and 1 follower…you pool together all the dice on all you characters to create a dice pool.

You have to successfully go to 3 locations on the board…and you need to fulfill certain criteria,explained on each location card,they differ whether its your first,second or third location that you are getting…if you get 3 you win…:-)

Every time you move you have to put a zombie token down…now these are double sided…picture of zombie on one side,and mirrored except you have a number…could be up to 8!!!!.this is the number of zombies you need to fight when you land on the space…you put it number side down so no one knows how many….

You have to collect resources and you move onto a space with a resource on it…and then do an encounter…the encounter card does not need to be successful to get the resource…but some cards if you fail them stop you from collecting the rescource…you do 1 encounter per resource,so if 2 resources on a space…you do 2 encounter card….
If the resource space has a zombie counter on it,you must fight the zombies,then turn over 1 encounter card for each resource on the space.

Fighting zombies…if you land on a space..with a zombie token on…flip it to see how many zombies…you then roll your dice pool…

3 coloured dice with 3 symbols on each,red more zombies,green more caps,blue more wild(you can turn a wild into another side of the dice) again each dice has different totals…so some will have x2,x3 on various sides…

To kill zombies you must roll the same amount of zombies as are attacking you…if you roll less than you take the difference in fatigue points…3 fatigue,you’re dead…
Forgot to say that you start the game with 1 main character and 1 followers…but you can collect or loose followers during the game…
As I said I thought the game was OK…would definitely be better with more than 2 people playing…and you can play the game with 6,so maybe 1 to play when we have a big meet up…

This is a review of a game that I’ve only played twice,just did it to show what an easy game it is to pick up…I’m sure there are a couple of things I got wrong,sure someone will put me right…

Hope it helps a bit

Zombie Dice

Zombie Dice…
Possibly the best filler game I’ve played…
The game is simple…
You have 13 dice…in 3 colours,green red and yellow…
Each dice has brains,footprints and shotguns on them…
The red dice have more shotgun blast symbols than brains or footprints, the green dice have more brains than blasts, and the yellow dice have an equal number of everything…
Roll 3 at a time…footprints you don’t score just keep them and roll again…
Roll brains to score…13 brains total=VICTORY
Don’t roll shotguns,they’ll kill you!!!your a zombie your already dead!!!anyway 3 shotguns and your DEAD AGAIN!!!and you loose your score…for that turn…
Takes no time to learn and even less time to play…
So if your struggling for something to do between games,I’d give Zombie Dice a go…
2 or more players…
Suggested age:10 and up…
Also can be seen on the excellent Table Top in a triple game episode.
