Fun but really just a novelty,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Zombie Dice (Toy)
I got this for my nine year old son figuring it would make for some good family gaming. The rules are simple to learn and have just a trace of strategy to keep it from being a game of pure luck. The theme is well done with the artwork on the instructions, dice, and packaging all excellent.
In fact it's not a bad game at all. However I am calling this a novelty in my review and the reason for the three stars is it has very little replay value. It's fun a few times and then, at least in our family, it wasn't picked up again. There are lots of simple games that are played over and over again, but not this one.
Steve Jackson Games makes many great games; I've been a customer for years. Zombie Dice though, just doesn't have enough replay value to be more than a one day novelty. Maybe buy it for your Halloween party or other one time event and it's fine for that, but this game won't be the centerpiece of a family game night like many classics might be.
