Each player controls between one (for 6 players) and six (solo game) survivors of different backgrounds and origins, all battling zombies in a prison and its surrounding areas. Through the missions featured in the game, your team tries to clean out the prison and make it into a safe haven. Good luck-you're going to need it. Survivors must accomplish specific goals while constantly battling zombies and gaining new skills in the process. Be careful, however: the Danger Level rises with your experience, and the more zombies you kill, the more zombies come for you. In the end, swarms of zombies block your path to victory. Luckily, you have the will and the weapons to kill them all! Zombicide Season 2: Prison Outbreak is designed both as a stand-alone game for new players and an expansion for Season 1 owners. It's a fast-paced, fun, and easy-to-learn game with action movie characters and themes. Your team must develop innovative tactics to find the balance between survival against all odds and furious zombie hunting. Cooperation and friendship are your best tools to achieve victory. Engage in a Zombicide with your family and friends (ages 13 and up)!
From the Manufacturer
Season 2: Prison Outbreak is a standalone game that takes the players to an indoor environment with vicious close-ranged fights, Prison Outbreak contains all the needed material for a new player to enter the Zombicide universe and lots of content, almost all new, for an existing Zombicide player to expand his game experience. In fact, Prison Outbreak holds even more material than the core game published in 2012 (now nicknamed Season 1). The Prison Outbreak features berserker zombies. They're really tied to each other. Prison tiles display tortuous alleys, small rooms and doors everywhere, filled with berserker zombies immune to ranged weapons. You have to think fast, foresee the improbable and jump into melee at every turn. This is like a modern dungeon where levers are replaced with switches to open or lock doors, use security rooms and reach secret areas. Prison Outbreak also contains six new survivors with their Zombivor aspects. These survivors are really designed to act as a team, as their skills really complement each other. They're precious assets to any Zombicide team. Missions featured in the rulebook form a campaign on their own, as survivors battle to turn a zombie-filled prison into a reliable shelter. Many challenges await them, but they have new tools of the trade: riot shields, automatic shotguns, concrete saws and many more toys. There's even an alternate ending.
