I thought I would dig one of my old classic favourite board games to take a look at and a review of.
Contents first, you get a deck of action cards
Again they feature that great artwork.
The Gaming tiles. These are used to build your town layout as you play. They ensure no play through is the play and every city is different.
Solid artwork, divided into squares for movement.
Then we have the models, we have 6 hero models, all the same sculpts just different colours
The objective is to reach the helipad and escape, or be the first player to kill 25 zombies.
The game is for 2 to six players, you each pick a survivor model, and place down the town centre tile.
then each player is dealt a hand of 3 cards. Given 3 life (heart) tokens, and 3 bullet tokens.
The first player draws a roadmap tile, and places it down to form a new square, then places as many zombies on it as there are entrances to the tile. If it is a place, like the fire station, toy ship etc it tells you how many zombies, how many hearts and how many bullets go in the building.
You can play a card in your turn, these can add a bonus to you, or mess with you opponent. Then at the end you roll a d6 and you must move that many zombies 1 square each. You can use this to initiate combat on one of your opponents, or try to block his movement up by forcing him to fight through hordes, or if you want bring them to you so you can kill them quicker!
Then the next player goes through the turn and so on
Its a quick game to learn, has some random elements like movement, and some tactical elements like when to play your cards, which you can drop up to one of each round if you have used them.
All in all a great fun game, with many many expansions and versions of it now. Go take a look and pick one up, you will have a great time.
