Description Edit | History

In Rise of the Zombies, a fast-paced card game of zombie survival, players play Location cards to form a path from the Safe House to the Rescue Helicopter, while fighting off hordes of zombies. The players must also play fast because they are racing a real-world timer. If time expires, the Survivors are left behind and die.

Players play cards during a common "Survivor Turn". At the start of the Survivor Turn, all players can discard and draw until the number of cards in their hands is equal to their Hand Sizes. There are no player turns. Declare what you are doing, which card you are playing, and which zombie you are attacking, and roll dice. This simulates the chaos of combat. Most cards can be used to perform more than one function. You can perform as many actions during the Survivor Turn as your cards can support. You can even trade weapons and items with other Survivors in your Location.

Once all players have resolved their actions, the Zombies get to attack.

The game is co-opish... how you play the game is up to you. You don't gain anything by having other Survivors die, but if you spend too much time trying to help others, it might cost you your own survival.

Help them? Leave them behind? It's all up to you.

8 Simple Player Aid and Game board
The first page has a card track that can be printed, possibly mounted, cut out, and laid end to end to help visualize how the location cards work. The Zombie Infection level is included for each space. The next two Pages have some simple reminders that may be useful with new players.

4 RotZ status counters
These counters can be used to assist in tracking which survivors have used their free attack and special ability, as well as those that have rolled a reload result. I find them to be useful when playing a solitaire game with multiple survivors.

7 Additional Action Cards
Additional action cards for Rise of the Zombies V1.1 These cards were created while waiting for a meeting, before I got the game so there are a few similar cards to Dan's great game. Print these cards on cardstock. To include in your game just take the original game cards and these cards and sleeve with colored sleeves. Enjoy or at least try to not to become Zombie fodder as quickly with these upgrades. Good luck running for your lives.
