We all knew it was just a matter of time before the undead found their way into digital tabletop gaming. Just a matter of time indeed, and as usual, in Zombicide, it’s up to you to take them out – or die trying. With help, should you feel the need. Help in the form of 2-5 friends / allies / coworkers / acquiantances – whoever you’re comfortable fending off the undead with. Because it’s dangerous to venture through the apocalypse alone.
Oh and before you get any funny ideas, no, you do not get to play as a zombie. Sorry. It’s a strict you-against-the-board affair, for 1-6 people. That said, being a survivor doesn’t necessarily have to be boring. Not even close. Stressful at times, sure, but hey – you get to beat the crap out of walking corpses, and that never does get old. Ever. Kapow!
Ambiance is constantly balanced between “beat’em up” and “survival horror” as survivors keep switching from prey to predators. Humor and gloom happily marry in a zombie-fest.
Just keep in mind as you go along, growing in strength, forming bonds with fellow survivors and other fun things: the more you kill, the more will come. Or something along those lines. Basically, “kill them all” is never going to work. Instead you’re better off focusing on the mission objective(s) at hand, as those will in fact ensure victory. Until another game of Zombicide begins that is, at which point the entire thing starts over. Because such is the way of board games, undead or not.
Note: while every player needs a copy of Tabletop Simulator to play Zombicide, only the host needs the DLC.
