Product Description

From the Manufacturer

In City of Horror, you're playing a group of humans faced with a zombie invasion. The struggle against the dead is important, but your own survival is vital. To win, you'll have to make alliances but also betray your companions. A game is played over 4 turns. Each turn represents one hour of time before reinforcements arrive. These turns are played out similarly: zombies arrive, players move one of their characters and then each location is resolved (power and attack). At the end of the 4 turns of play, the player with the most victory points (characters, food and antidote) wins the game. But be careful: to get into the helicopter, the players will have to make sure each of their living characters has been vaccinated.

This truly is the best zombie board game because it captures the essence of all great zombie fiction: the real monsters are the other survivors.

Saw people that weren't really into complicated strategy games really take to this game - it was simple enough to "get", and they quickly bought into it.

I've never played a game with this much player interaction- it almost makes this more of an "experience" rather than a board game (i mean that in a good way).

City of Horror is an outstanding semi-cooperative boardgame for 3-6 players. In the game each player controls up to 4 characters in a city block that is besieged by zombies. Each turn characters try to find an open location to hide from the zombies while trying to find the vaccine they will need to be rescued by the army if they can survive the night. The game is semi-cooperative since players who are outnumbered by zombies in each location will have to work together to either reduce the number of zombies, or VOTE TO THROW SOMEONE OUT TO PLACATE THE ZOMBIE HORDE! This leads to tense and/or hilarious negotiations between players, including players not directly in the location. "Hey if you use your flare gun to take some zombies from the armory, I'll vote to keep you in the hospital next turn!" (Note: Promises are not binding in this game.) Players will need to work together to keep from throwing characters to the zombie horde, but only the player with the highest score wins the game. Throw in character special abilities, a small amount of resource management (action cards), and the need to keep your characters alive and you have the makings of a fantastic game. Highly recommended!

What a great game this one turned out to be! I am low on games with player-to-player interaction that don't just revolve around trading with others and this game fills the void. We all had a kick out of plotting against eachother (we had the right crowd going :-D) and the use of weapons and special powers/items were highlights of the evening! I've never played a game with this much player interaction- it almost makes this more of an "experience" rather than a board game (i mean that in a good way). The art work is phenomenal- courtesy of an exceptional artist Miguel Coimbra (7 Wonders, Cyclades, Smallworld)!

As much as I hate to down talk such an amazing gaming marvel, I feel I must give my honest opinion on a few things that do bug me about City of Horror. Being a hardcore board gamer, I tend to read the rules and familiarize myself with the game mechanics first before I try it out with friends to help minimize pre-game downtime. Putting that aside, it still does take about 15-30 minutes to set up the board and all components. Also, the game boards come warped which look very tacky on the table. These, of course, are minor issues that fortunately do not harm the gameplay for me.

An exceptional game where, with the right crowd, you will find yourself having a near-authentic feel of what would happen if you were in a room filled with people who will do anything to survive a zombie apocalypse. Great fun to be had!

The fat is really trimmed from this game. Set up is relatively easy, and everyone gets into the swing of things quickly. The cards you get to use are very limited, and the mechanics work in a way that very quickly escalates the game, within the first two rounds, if not most likely the very first, into the state in which it shines - making deals, promises, sometimes lies, persuading, pleading, and sweating while it comes down to that vote that you have no guarantee the deal you just entered into is going to go through.

Saw people that weren't really into complicated strategy games really take to this game - it was simple enough to "get", and they quickly bought into it. Like any good zombie comic/movie/etc - it's not about the zombies, it's about the people and the dwindling resources and the sidewise glances everyone starts giving each other. This game emulates this perfectly.

This truly is the best zombie board game because it captures the essence of all great zombie fiction: the real monsters are the other survivors. In this game, you have to do anything to get your characters to survive, and that might mean tough choices. The church is overrun with zombies. Do you play the card in your hand to kill two zombies, or do you hold onto it and let someone be fed to the horde? The time has come to vote, and you're outnumbered. Will you steal someone's votes to ensure that you hold the majority? Your roommate saved you in the hospital. Do you repay the favor, or stab him in the back to get that 5-point character off the board?

This game involves a good amount of scheming.
- Cards are a precious - and VERY limited - resource. You'll not only need them to kill zombies and stay alive, but you'll also need to discard one or two to get your hands on the vaccines that will save your characters' lives. Often, this means not playing a card and leaving it up to the vote simply so that you don't find yourself with an empty hand when Hour 4 rolls around.

- You'll also need to keep track of how the other players are doing. The person to your left has all their characters still alive, and they also have a surplus of antidotes. Perhaps it's time you engineered a scenario to get one of their characters killed to better your chances of winning.

- You need to find a good balance between being a team player and looking out for yourself. Players around the table will remember good deeds when it comes time to vote out characters or distribute antidotes. You can buy yourself some goodwill pretty easily. At the same time, you have your own characters to protect, and you can't afford to look out for everybody.
