The ONLY reason I didn't give this a 5 star is the can is VERY LOUD!!! It hurts my ears to hear the dice hit the bottom of it! Not something you'd play if you had to be quiet, or if someone has a headache. Somehow the dice rolling is way quieter than shaking them in the can.
Otherwise a nice family game for all ages.
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.
This is a super-fast, super-simple game, good for a 5-10 break from meatier fare. A player starts by taking three dice from the container and rolling them. Ultimately, you want brains (first zombie to roll 13 brains wins!). However, it's very possible to roll shotguns (three shots and you're out!) or footsteps (victims that got away--and give you another chance for brainnnnnns!). With each roll, you're taking a gamble: you can choose to re-roll the footsteps in an attempt to gain more brains. However, rolling also increases your risk of getting shot!
Easy to learn, with a ridiculous/hilarious theme, Zombie Dice is a nice variation on dice-gambling games like Yahtzee and Farkle. Like those, it's also a game mostly of luck, not strategy, and it can finish in a couple minutes if someone's rolling hot! (Of course, you can always raise the brain count to prolong a game!) My only complaint is the cylindrical cardboard container; it'd be nice if it were made of plastic or something more solid that would stand up better over time.
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.
