Zombicide, the board game, has taken the world by storm with over two million copies sold since its release in 2012 and spawning a cult franchise of cooperative zombie slaying all over the world. In Zombicide, zombies are controlled by the game, while players take on the role of survivors who must co-operate in order to survive and thrive in a world overrun by the bloodthirsty undead. Find guns and gear to take the fight to the zombies through 25 different scenarios linked by a branching story as you pick your way through an infested city.
Zombicide (2nd Edition) features refined and streamlined rules, including updates to target priority for ranged attacks, interactions with doors, and vehicle mechanisms. A new dark zone feature, a zone that hides zombies from survivor's attacks, has been added as well. Zombicide (2nd Edition) will include new components and miniatures as well, including plastic dashboards and new child survivors. Returning players will be able to use their existing collection from previous Zombicide releases as well.
Even the so-called "tutorial mission" has ominous precursors to the more advanced missions that await. It looks daunting, with a rule book that basically qualifies as a medium-sized magazine. Don't be put off - the mechanic and game play is smooth and easy to get to grips with. I found that learning by doing was the best approach and use the rules as a reference. This game has endless re-play quality with eight different characters and a tonne of cards that will keep you on your toes. It is a great game and I loved it. I am glad that I held out for the second edition and have really enjoyed wiping out masses of zombies.
The production quality is top notch. This is a lot of game for the money. You will need a bigger table. Awesome game!
