Zpocalypse

Description

Zpocalypse is a cooperative play, zombie survival game in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Two to four players play a squad of survivors, whose stats you manage on a squad board.To be the best team spend one to four days in the nuclear zombified wasteland. Start in a basement/ fallout shelter which can lead out to several base locations, or even through the sewers. Scavenge for food and supplies, which expands the transformable board. Then feed your survivors and add their skills to your squad board. After that use your squad to fortify your base. An event card adds additional challenges and gives zombie movement. Combat adds the adrenaline rush of moving around the board trying to combat zombies before they consume you. Every fortification built, zombie killed, and survivor saved leads to victory points which determines the ultimate winner, and also allows you to level up in weapons ability. Try to make it day to day in a world torn apart from the walking dead.

History

In the Zpocalypse world we also have the Zmaster expansion which adds a fifth player as the zombie master. There is Zmergency which takes you through a hospital or FEMA camp and introduces event cards, that make moving from room to room a harrowing experience. We also have the Alpha and Beta Team expansions that create new scenarios that use driving mechanics on the board. Finally we have amazing miniatures from the Hospital Zombie set to our Fortifications Pack which are great for the miniature enthusiast in any game genre.

Features

  • Post-nuclear zombie apocalypse
  • Co-op and versus style of play (each game has a definitive winner)
  • Modular tiles, so each play through is slightly different
  • Elements of a tower defense game, wrapped with tactical combat
  • Instead of 1 survivor, you control a squad, this allows for the thematic death of a survivor, while the player may continue playing
