I bought World War Z – The Game and after reading the rules, played it with my son, Spencer. Just to be clear, this is an old-school board game with dice and people sitting around the table, conversing and interacting, analog style. This is also a cooperative game, so all of the players are united and playing towards the same goal of eliminating enough zombie hordes that the human race survives. If a player dies, he becomes a zombie and then plays in opposition to the remaining human players, which is an interesting take on the traitor element that is used effectively in Shadows Over Camelot and Battlestar Galactica.
The game board is a map of the world divided into zones, not unlike what you see with the game Risk, but the resemblance to that classic ends there. There are also cards, polyhedral battle dice and cardboard counters. There are rules, which outline the actions a player can take each turn. It doesn’t really matter what actions you take though, because everything will come down to a dice roll.
Each player is given randomly dealt a Role Card, and these roles are not balanced. During your turn, you can move to a new part of the world. You can equip a combat card, showing a weapon. You can battle a zombie horde in an occupied zone, and you must escalate the threat by drawing a threat escalation card to determine how the zombie threat grows.Read more ›
For one, the player cards that can be played are mainly weak, useless or unoriginal. There is no creativity here, just a copy/paste from other games.
Second and worse problem is quality. The tokens feel like they could have been bought in a Dollar Tree kids toy, and the player cards are ACTUALLY printed on standard house hold printer paper. And the packaging is equally poor.
If you want a good zombie game similar to Pandemic, just label one of the diseases 'zombification' and you will have a much better time.
The materials are not what you would get from a Fantasy Flight or Wizards of the Coast, but again, at this price point (less that $15), it works. The game loosely follows the movie of the same name with players trying to halt the spread of the zombie hoard from over running the planet. You adopt a roll of a team member in this fight against the plague and collectively try to survive a number of turns to keep the spread at bay. You never really eliminate the hoard, merely keep it contained as best your team can. And if one of your team fails, they join the zombie hoard to defeat the rest of the team. Playing a game runs a little over an hour for the first time, and about 45-60 minutes after.
This is not Arkham Horror, Pandemic or Wrath of Ashardalon, but it is a good starter game for new players to get the feel of a board game night with lighter rules and a very affordable price point. Recommended.
