THE BATTLE FOR FARMINGDALE

States of SiegeTM #9

Voted #1 on The Gaming Gang's Top 10 Games of 2011!

Arising once again from the grave, from designer Hermann Luttmann and lavishly illustrated by Vinh Ha, arises Dawn of the Zeds Second Edition as you've never seen it before. In this States of Siege™ solitaire game of horror and survival, your strategies will be put to the test. The world has gone crazy – a deadly virus has turned ordinary people into vicious, zombie-like killers. The undead, nicknamed "Zeds," are now converging on your corner of the world. You have been left to your own devices to stop them while the National Guard organizes a relief column and fights its way to you – but that could take days, or even weeks, before they arrive.

At the town of Farmingdale and its surrounding villages, you must coordinate its defenses. Regular citizens may emerge as heroes as you work to halt the Zeds' advances by (re)killing them, discovering and implementing a cure to this vile scourge, and preserving the area and its inhabitants as much as possible. In addition to this madness, the crazy Doctor Marteuse has been working in the underground tunnels and unleashing his uber-deadly Super Zeds, a nasty bunch of beasts that give havoc a whole new name. Bring him to justice, destroy the infectious Zeds, and save your city from peril!

In a game that requires the utmost test of skill and nerve, will you survive long enough? Will you be able to fight hordes of Zeds while protecting the townspeople? Test your heroics and unearth Dawn of the Zeds, a game that will keep you on your toes!




L'Aube des Morts-Vivants, un jeu en solitaire d'horreur et de survie de la série "State of Siege"TM conçu par Hermann Luttmann, surgit comme une main sortant de ma tombe.

Le monde est devenu fou, un virus mortel a transformé les gens ordinaires en zombies tueurs et vicieux. Ces Morts-Vivants surnommés Zeds, convergent maintenant vers notre petit coin de paradis ! Vous avez été laissé à vous même pour les arrêter et préserver votre communauté alors que la colonne de secours de la Garde Nationale se bat pour vous rejoindre; mais cela pourra prendre des jours, voire des semaines, avant qu'ils n'arrivent. Vous devez prendre la tête de vos administrés assiégés !

Des citoyens deviennent des héros alors que vous oeuvrez pour arrêter l'avancée des Zeds en les re-tuant, en découvrant et administrant un remède à cette terrible épidémie afin de préserver votre secteur et ses habitants autant que possible.

Dans un jeu qui requiert un sang-froid et des nerfs à toute épreuve, survivrez-vous assez longtemps ?
Serez-vous capable de combattre les hordes de Zeds tout en protégeant votre population ?
Découvrez toutes les possibilités de l'Aube des Morts-Vivants, un cauchemar qui déterminera si votre destin est de devenir un héros ou de terminer en casse-dalle !

21 Dawn of the Zeds - New Heroes
27+9=36 new heroes for DotZ. Even more heroes....too many now, I think. Thanks to Hohenstadt for the suggestion of Circus Heroes. There is also a card that you should be able to use to customize your alter-ego. As long as you don't mind being dismembered and eaten by the Zeds :-) Enjoy.
