Started from a Kickstarter in 2012, if you love multiplayer zombie games with RPG elements that can be extremely tough, then Zombicide might just be the game for you. It can be a little daunting to get into for new players to the board game genre but your patience to learn will be well worth it.
You play as six different ‘heros’ which allows from 1 – 6 players. It is always nice when you can play a boardgame on your own, as sometimes you might not have 6 buddies to hand or it could be 2am on a Wednesday night and don’t want to call them up for a quick board game-sesh. The fundamentals of the Zombicide are; get into a map area, accomplish a missions which has a set of different goals and in true zombie fashion, survive.
The game is played in a series of turns, where you will control each survivor on the map until all survivors have taken their actions. Actions on the board consist of moving, searching for items and fighting the silent horde of undead. To win, you just need to complete you mission and get out with at least one player alive, sounds easy…but that could be further from the truth. If everyone on the mission does get eaten by the undead masses, then the game wins.
