Top 5 Zombie Board Games
Zombies have been a thriving theme in all forms of media and entertainment lately. From left 4 Dead to Dawn of the Dead to The Walking Dead– It’s reign on our entertainment is a healthful lot to say the least. Today, I’ll be bringing up our Top 5 Zombie Board Games for those who are looking to fulfill their entertainement medley with an analog form of entertainment!
Zombie Dice is as simple and fun as it gets (Thanks Jerry). Filler game to it’s fullest as you roll dice inside the case it comes from only to pour it out and hope you’ve eaten some brain. Zombie Dice is very accessible and very fun. It’s easy to teach to anyone who is willing to play and can kill any time from a few minutes to an hour (yes, I have…). With the obvious zombie theme and the awesome expansions that deliver flavor and immersion, Zombie Dice is my go-to Zombie filler game and is a great choice for our Top 5 Zombie Board Games.
Zombicide is one of those zombie games that is absolute in action and a great thematic experience. Zombicide is a cooperative engagement for you and your group to work together in order to accomplish objectives. The plot twist, as you kill zombies, they only get stronger. Fight off hordes of zombies and enjoy a compelling zombie experience that requires quick actions, strategy, and an appreciation for being able to fill all your zombie needs. Also, this game progresses through “seasons” so when you’ve exhausted this season, go out and find yourself Prison Out Break or Rue Morgue.
Another scenario deriven game is Last Night on Earth. Of the two teams, zombies and humans (which are both controlled by humans), humans will be trying to escape, survive, or rescue someone while the zombies try to.. well.. prevent that. I’ve heard from plenty of sources that Last Night on Earth is one of the best zombie games out there for and seems to be a promising experience for big groups or those who are in the mood for a zombie scenario driven campaign.
Dead of Winter has players survive a zombie out break through the winter. However, on top of mindlessly destroying waves of zombies through out the game, each character has a secret objective of their own. Being a semi-copperative experience, some of these objectives to harm everyone else (crazy humans). Dead of Winter is a game that is both challenging, fun, and very familiar to those in the community. Also a great innovative zombie title for this Top 5 Zombie Board Games list.
Being one of my first card games AND doubling up as my first zombie game (Thanks Alex James) Zombie Fluxx is one of those fun, challenging, and quirky games that anyone can play. Like Fluxx, the game will continue to introduce new rules through out the game. The big difference between fluxx and Zombie Fluxx is the theme–which influences new rule cards, action cards, and new objectives to the game.
