Zombie Dice

35 out of 38 gamers thought this was helpful

If you are looking for: an in depth strategy game, a game that keeps you interested for hours straight, or one that balances intriguing game moves with managing money or armies, this isn’t the game for you.

What Zombie dice does is fit its niche very well. Zombie dice is a quick game that can be pulled out and played at a table during a fast food meal, on a desk before class, sitting at a bus stop, pretty much anywhere where you have 5-25 minutes you want to kill. During that amount of time, so many other board games just aren’t feasible to set up start and play, but zombie dice easily fits the bill.

The gist of the game is to score the most points. Points are accumulated by collecting “brains.” Players roll dice which have one of three images per side (brains, footprints, shotgun blast) During a turn a player pulls three of the ten dice from the container and rolls them. Any brains or shotgun blasts he sets to the side. The brains count as points, the shotgun blasts take away life. The footprints represent a reroll. If the player set to the side any brains or shotgun blasts he replaces those dice with more from the container so that he is always rolling three dice. The player wants to accumulate as many brains as possible but his turn ends (and all points are lost) the moment he has rolled three shotgun blasts, so strategy is needed to figure out when to stop rolling pass the dice to the next player and “bank” those brains. The dice have different colors representing different difficulties. (Green, easy has only 1 shotgun blast on it, red, hard has 3 shotgun blasts that can be rolled)

Again this game is simple, can be played by children as young as 4-5, but still is a great laugher when you are trying to fill time with your friends.

For the price, its an easy game to acquire and I recommend you pick it up.

Dominion

76 out of 94 gamers thought this was helpful

Dominion, by Rio Grande Games is an incredible deck building game which was declared 2009 game of the year in Germany.
Players have to balance collecting three different types of cards: Treasure, Action cards, and Victory points. Teasure cards are used to purchase cards, action cards allow you to multiple things: Attack other players, draw more cards into your hands, play more action cards, spend more money, and even thwart other players attacks against you. Victory points are the only cards that matter at the end of the game but accumulating them too early can drastically undermine your ability to purchase other cards. So it can be challenging.
But the game plays very easily. Middle School kids should have no problem grasping the concept and it is fast paced (games last 30 minutes to an hour)
The game has great replay ability since the game has 25 different stacks of action cards yet only 10 stacks are used per game so each game can play so differently.
This game was the first deck building game I ever played and it opened me to the genre which I now love.
HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Zombie flux is a card game that is fun, quick, portable, and easy.
Each player is dealt 5 cards then the game begins with the basic rules (draw a card and play a card)The rest of the game and its rules are shaped by the cards the players are initially dealt and then draw throughout the game. Because the cards categories are: New rules, An Action, a Zombie, a goal of the game or a keeper card. (Keepers being what help acheive the goal)
The winner is the first person to complete the current goal. But beware, all it takes is someone playing a new goal (thus voiding the old goal) to turn your game on its head. The games can last as little as 10 minutes or as long as 30 minutes in rare cases. The game is playable anywhere you have room to sit down (or even stand) around 2 decks of card stacks. Such a fun easy game. There is lots of zombie humor also.

Munchkin is a fun level advancing card game that is twisted and fun. The game plays similar to a Dungeons and drasgons type campaign, you start at level one, hunt and defeat monsters to gain levels, gain equipment and treasures from beating monsters to upgrade your stats. But unlike Dungeons and dragons you can use your cards to make your “friends” monsters harder to beat. You can summon extra monsters, make them stronger, reduce your friends stats and whatever it takes to beat them to the top. First one to level 10 gets the win. So those allies at the low levels might stab you in the back if they see you progressing too much. We have played this game until our sides hurt from laughing. An excellent party game which is great for young teens too.
I highly recommend it!

Pirate's Cove

43 out of 48 gamers thought this was helpful

A quick game (only 12 turns long) that pits you against your opponents to see who can become the most famous pirate in a year. The game starts with everyone on a basic boat with a few sails, crew, cannons and a small hull. How you proceed is up to you. Will you upgrade your sails so you are the fastest boat and first to fire in battle, upgrade your crew and cannons so you can roll more dice to shred your opponents boats, or upgrade your hull so you can haul more booty to treasure island where you can bury it for fame.
A great game for 3-5 players. I have played it with 3 and 4 so far and the more players the better in my opinion.
Each turn there is strategy to see which island you will go to. Will you go to one that alllows you to upgrade your cannons but that might have less treasure or will you go to an island that might allow you to upgrade a part of your boat you don’t need to but has much more booty for the claiming. The only problem, is if your opponents go to the same island, there will be a ship battle where one of you will limp away while the other claims the treasure. It is a great game. A must have for a group of pirate fans who love board games.

The game takes a little getting used to, but once you have a grasp for the rules it is a great game. You go around the board building up strength magic and life. When you feel strong enough you enter the next level of the board where is it more dangerous, but also more rewarding. You build your character in hopes of being strong enough to enter the third ring and survive long enough to destroy all of your opponents. Harder for younger players to pick up but very fun.

Its hard to imagine that every avid board gamer doesn’t have a risk game in their house already, but for those who don’t… get it!! Risk is a great strategy game! It is a great way to teach some basic strategy tips to your kids or is intricate enough to keep avid board gamers going for hours. While better if played with 4+ players… it is great even for a game of one on one.

While the game is not quickly learned or mastered, it is incredible. If you are thetype who likes pouring over a game looking for weaknesses in their opponent or even playing out strategies by themself, this is the game for you.
The only frustration with the game is the “luck effect” found in some of the dice rolls. But a careful strategist takes these into account.

Junta

Junta is a fun game that is easy to play. Those who like great strategy will enjoy the option to coup. Those that like more basic play can keep it simple and just try to assasinate their enemies using the non political means. Was a very hard game to find before the latest version was released. Get your hands on a copy and enjoy!

Loot

Very basic strategy, easy to learn lots of laughs. The simple play format makes it an easy game for kids to pick up. The relatively cheap price allows it to be a game your kids can keep in their room, (as opposed to some of the $60+ games) and play with their young friends.

The game really is easily learned and is playable by both casual and avid players. I have now played it in groups of 5 and 7. We found that the game was a little more difficult for the traitor with 7 people as opposed to 5 people because there is 2 more people to thwart the traitors actions. After trying the “squire” alternative start, we still found the game to be difficult for the traitor. After reducing every knight’s life to 3 instead of the recommended 4 lives at the start we found the traitor had a much better chance.
Love the game!!! everyone I have exposed the game to did the same thing I did, rushed out to secure a copy of the game for themselves.
