Description

... Lie? ... Steal? ... Murder?

Find out on The Road, a post-apocalyptic survival card game set in the zombie-infested Australian outback.

Work together your fellow survivors. Battle zombies. Scavenge for food and useful items. Make your way across the zombie-infested Outback in the hope of escaping this blighted land. You need each other to survive -- but food is short, and your “friends” are eyeing you hungrily. How far can you really trust them?

How to Play

The Road is a 3 to 5 player "cooperative" game. You and your fellow survivors are travelling through the zombie-infested Australian countryside trying to reach a nearby airfield which promises the chance of escape.

The journey takes place over a series of days, and each day is divided into Morning, Noon and Night phases.

In the Morning you must decide whether to eat (if you can) or risk going hungry. As hunger and tiredness accumulate, you chance of losing health grows, but who knows when you'll find more food?

At Noon you choose where to travel that day. Each day there two different locations in play, offering different opportunities for scavenging loot, but also different levels of danger.

When you arrive at a location you must fight whatever zombies are revealed. Combat is a combination of strategy and luck. Sometimes your only choice is to hide or run away.

At Night you sleep -- and hope that noise in the bushes is only the wind. Not a zombie coming to eat you. Or a "friend" with a knife aimed at your back.

Cooperation on the Road is a necessary but fragile thing. Survival comes first. Is your friend coveting a can of beans? Or is that a loaded gun under their pillow? Can you keep the group together to make it to the end? Or is it time to run before they turn on you?
