City of Zombies is a co-operative board game for 1 to 6 players. Players take it in turn to roll and combine dice to stop wave after wave of advancing Zombies from reaching your barricade until a Rescue plane can land and you can make your escape.
Each Zombie has a target strength, this number tells you how strong the Zombie is. Players roll and combine dice to exactly reach a Zombies strength to defeat and remove it from play. Players try to defeat as many Zombies as they can before the Zombies advance and a new wave appears.
Players take it in turn to roll and combine their dice, in any way they can think of, to reach one or more Zombie’s strengths. The game rewards players as their maths skills improve. For example they can simply add or subtract dice to defeat Zombies, but multiplying or divide dice and more Zombies can be hit and defeated. Learn to Power Up and Down dice (Squaring and Square Rooting) and you can start defeating some really strong Zombies with your dice.
