This is my 5th card game! Originally inspired by a friend who suggested I take Ninja – Silent but Deadly and rather than an assassination game, do a zombie infection style game. I really liked the idea but wanted to make this more than 20 cards that you could use to infect friends. So I built another game around and you’ve not got two games in one handy deck.
Zombies – Shambling and Hungry: Use these zombie cards to simulate a zombie outbreak at your next party or family gathering! Sit yourself down for a fast and furious game of zombie dominance!
In this game each player takes the role of a shambling and hungry zombie, trying their best to get to the front of the zombie horde where they’ll have the best chance at a juicy bite from one of those still living. Each zombie player will do their best to rid themselves of other nearby zombies (game cards) by pushing them back or foisting them onto other zombie players.
The first player to break away from the horde by discarding all of their cards wins!
Zombies – Infection: Each deck of Zombies: Shambling and Hungry comes with 20 Infected cards. They are used to infect your friends, who in turn can and should infect other friends! Use as many Infected cards as there are players. One person becomes Patient Zero, and starts off with 8 Infected cards. They then try to infect others! A the start of the game, only Patient Zero can infect other players. All players should agree on a time limit for the game – it can be an hour or until the end of an event
Purchase the game from The Game Crafter for $13.99 and receive it in a nice tuck box with the rules printed out and available as a download. Or purchase it from DriveThruCards for $8.99 (with an optional plastic card case for $1.00) and receive the cards without the tuck box and have access to the rules as a PDF.
I also had a two week long contest going on via Rafflecopter to give away two copies of the game. This morning, the winners were chosen!
