In this cooperative game of humans vs. zombies, the humans must race to barricade all the doors and windows of a house, search the house for helpful items and weapons to defend themselves with, and they must do all this while fighting off an ever-growing horde of shambling zombies.
The zombies, of course, just want to eat the humans. Zombies are slower than humans, but they make up for that shortcoming through sheer numbers.
The humans can also try to escape using the car in the driveway (if they happen to find the car keys), but they'll have to make it to the car. Or perhaps they can find the hidden cellar and take refuge in there until help arrives...
Number of Players:
2-6, with one player controlling the zombies. Can also be played solo, using automatic zombie movement rules.
Estimated Playing Time:
45-90 minutes (use of VOIP is highly recommended for online games)
About the Game:
"Zombie Plague" is a Print-and-Play boardgame by Hackwerks Games. It was originally released in 1991, and has since developed a fan base which continues to refine and expand on the game system with additional expansions. The original Print-and-Play game can be downloaded from here
This digital conversion of Zombie Plague for use with BRPG is being released with permission from the original designers.
Zombie Plague is simple, fast, fun, easy to learn, and very strongly themed (it is very reminiscent of the classic George Romero zombie movie, "Night of the Living Dead"). Every game of Zombie Plague tells a story, almost as if you were in an interactive zombie movie. It's even fun if you get killed, since you come back as a zombie and can continue playing, now intent on killing your former teammates.
Zombie Plague's game system is very flexible and highly suitable for tweaking (by adding house rules), if you are so inclined.
