Description Edit | History

Dawn of the Dead (based on the classic 1978 horror film) can be played as a two-player game (humans vs. zombies), as a solitaire game, or as a cooperative game with two to four players controlling the human heroes. The game map represents the shopping mall from the movie. Cardboard counters signify the human characters and zombies. To win, the zombie player must kill any three characters; the human player must secure the mall by closing all four entrances and eliminating all zombies within.

For those folks who don't have an image-editing program: I adjusted the Charts n Tables graphic for less show-through and a more printable size (6")

3 Dawn of the dead complete italian translation and clean graphics
I translated in Italian the rules, the board, the tiles, everything. I used the original 1978 graphics as starting point. I also cleaned up everything for easy printing and cutting. ITA: Ho tradotto in italiano le regole, il tabellone e le tessere. Ho usato la grafica originale del 1978 come punto di partenza. Ho anche pulito la grafica e riallineato i componenti per facilitare stampa e ritaglio.
