I played Zombie Dice with 6 friends to decide turn order in another board game and we had almost as much fun as with the other game itself! It's great for non-gamers because they get it and connects them to their inner gambler I think. Check it out for a quick, easy and fun game to get into.
You blindly take 3 dice and roll them. You keep your brains to your left, your gunshots to your right, and your footprints in the middle. As long as you haven't been shot 3 times, you can choose between rolling again, or eating (scoring) your brains and passing your turn. If you roll again, you must roll your footprint dice again, plus however many new dice you need to blindly pull from the cup to total 3. If you roll that 3rd gunshot, your turn is over and you don't get to eat your braaaAAAaains! Play continues in a race to 13 brains; once someone gets to 13, remaining players complete the current round and the zombie who ate the most brains wins.
Its the same 13 dice every turn, but turns go in a surprising variety of ways. Red footprints are going to have to be rolled again, which is scary, but even a red gunshot is a red die that isn't in the cup anymore - you could try to calculate the probabilities for your next throw, but in the end, you find a balance between your innate mathematical intuitions, the pressures of the current game score, and whatever sense of luck you possess. It's exciting, like gambling, and you are more engaged in your own risk/reward strategy (BraaaaAAaaaAAainnnns!) than with Yahtzee's more relaxed laundry list of things to accomplish.
There were no youngsters in my play groups, but I think kids would get this game, and older players can certainly offer helpful advice, so I think there is an educational vector here - its a fun way to exercise the probabilistic thinking muscles. But this is also a game you can introduce people into quickly, play once, and then play again, or do something else. Folks can easily rotate in and out of play.
For 2 players, 13 brains takes 5-15 minutes - additional players make the rounds longer, but the race to 13 seems to go faster too.
The "cup" is a stiff cardboard tube covered with the product art, with plastic caps on both ends - both come off, which is unfortunate when a zealous shaking pops the bottom off and sends 13 dice in all directions... if you are only a little more intelligent than I, you can avoid that problem. Sturdy black dice with recessed images painted in bright, unmistakable green, red, and yellow, and a succinct rules sheet that folds and fits in the tube complete the product. Its smaller than a beer can so you could take and play anywhere. (Tip: bring/find a little tray to toss the dice into, pass it with the dice cup)
This is a good dice game without the zombie motif. It's fast, engaging, and it can get exciting. If you embrace the whole zombie genre, it can get hilarious too. 2 to any number of players, I guess. Ages 9 to 99, I think.
Who doesn't want to be a Zombie out for Brains?
My Kids love the theme and LOVE THIS GAME. We even printed, laminated and cut out little brain tokens for scoring our games.
It's a roll and press your luck dice game. There inst much strategy but it's Pure Fun!!!
PARENTAL NOTE: It's a Bottom of the Purse Game.
Meaning it travels great there or in glove box of the car or put it in the diaper bag for the older kids. IF you are stuck waiting anywhere -RESTAURANTS, the Doctor's office, Dentist, airport, for the bus/train, in a Long Line or even if you go camping-- you have a small quick fun game to distract yourself and the kiddo's while you wait.
I love this game, and Martian Dice, for that reason. Martian Dice, for me ranks a little above Zombie Dice for me, as it offers a little more in choices and risk. Zombie Dice does play differently enough though that it is not the same game with a different theme.
Educational?? only if one was to study the mathematical statistics of the game, and even more so if you compared it with Martian Dice. The game alone, well there isn't any educational value to the game, it's just fun to play.
From 1 Parent to Another! Get the game, and keep it handy for outings.
Great little Gift, for kids and grandkids.........Adults, TOO!
I also purchased both expansions to the game, however I've not played either. Like the base game, the expansion contain quality dice, but piss for presentation. The game is all about the dice and the dice are well made, but everything else about the presentation is lack luster. That seems to be typical of SJ games.
The instructions included in the game are printed and worded terrible. Better to learn the game from better written sources. As for the variations of this game, Buck Hunter(?), and Dino Hunter, I would recommend buying the original Zombie Dice. The original has the best mix of simplicity and strategy.
Overall I give this a 4 star rating. I want to say it's a solid 5 star for the press your luck dice gamer like myself. It's a great game and they're quality dice, but the minimal presentation of the game really brings it down in over all review.
