She who laughs... lasts!
This humorous game with a zombie theme consists of a colorful dice cup containing 13 special dice in 3 different colors, green, red and yellow.
Players take the part of Zombies trying to get as many brains as they can while avoiding getting shotgunned: 3 blasts and you lose all the brains you accumulated that turn and play passes to the next player. The first player to acquire 13 brains wins the game.
There’s a catch, though. Not all of the dice are created equal. For example, the red dice have more shotgun blast symbols than brains or footprints, the green dice have more brains than blasts, and the yellow dice have an equal number of everything.
Zombie Dice is a light, fun game you can learn in a few minutes, that plays quickly and is a good filler while you’re waiting for other players to arrive or need a break after playing a brain bender. Lots of laughter and groans are sure to ensue.
Note: Chanting "Braains, braains" can sometimes turn the dice in your favor.
Suggested ages: 10 and up. Number of players: 2 or more. Playing time: 10 to 20 minutes. Retail price: $13.13. Expected release: May 2010.
