ZombieZone

The year 2020. It's been 5 years since the zombie uprising that we now refer to as "Zombie Summer". You could say that we've since adapted to living with the undead… All you need to do is stay indoors, keep your weapons close, and don't trust anyone or anything. But as humans, we are a greedy species, and we found a way to make money off of the zombies. And that is where the ZombieZone comes in.

ZombieZone is a battle arena where 10 humans and 10 zombies will fight to the death… on live television. From the safety of our homes, we watch the destruction unfold, placing bets on or against mankind. And some of us will even risk our own lives for a chance at fame and fortune. Will the money hungry-humans, armed with a shotgun and a brain make it out alive? Or will the flesh-hungry Zombies multiply and take them over?

So many questions, so little time. The battle is about to begin.

Enter the ZombieZone!

-------------------------------------------

ZombieZone is a head to head strategic battle for survival of humans vs. zombies. 2 players each use double-sided disc tokens and dice to maneuver around a gridded parking lot game board. Humans are armed with a shotgun for ultimate zombie destruction, and zombies spread quickly by taking over the humans (flipping the token over to reveal a zombie on the other side). The last one standing wins.
