This is the play by play of the previously posted story mode.
Professor and I have played this game one other time, and he killed me first (he said he wanted me to be his zombie bride). We decided to try it out with Clumsy Ninja and Space Cat.

The Professor (Zombies)
VS
Chubby Unicorn, Space Cat, and Clumsy Ninja (Survivors)

Goals:

  • Professor wants to kill us (meaning he wants to turn us all into zombies)
  • Survivors need to deplete the Zombie deck

 

Town:

House Lake Hippy Farm
Gun Store Department Store Supermarket
Supermarket House House

The Town

When Survivors move, they each roll for noise. If they make noise, Professor draws a zombie card.

We started by moving to the Supermarket: Space Cat made noise (not sneaky), Clumsy Ninja did not make noise (sneaky), Chubby Unicorn made noise (not sneaky), so Professor drew 2 cards. Professor played a Basic Zombie, and combat began. Survivors secretly choose to Fight, Shoot, or Escape (Escape is 4+ die roll on a d6). Everyone chose to Fight, but no one has a weapon so we had to use melee.

  • Space Cat – 1 damage to zombie
  • Clumsy Ninja – missed
  • Chubby Unicorn – 1 damage to zombie

1st zombie fight

Zombie dealt 1 damage to Space Cat (Professor chooses)

We chose to fight the zombie again (instead of running away), and Chubby Unicorn did one more point of damage, killing the zombie. Then it was the Loot phase. Clumsy Ninja rolled a 3, so we got 4 supply cards:

  • Energy drink, provisions, backpack, and barricade

Chubby Unicorn took the backpack and provisions, Space Cat the barricade, and Clumsy Ninja the energy drink. Then we entered the Rest phase (play/equip/trade cards). Chubby Unicorn equipped backpack and running shoes and gave Clumsy Ninja shells, Space Cat equipped backpack and played barricade on Supermarket, and Clumsy Ninja equipped her shotgun. Because of the barricade, we were able to discard three provisions (we each had one), and Professor had to discard 14 cards from the Zombie deck.

Discarding provisions


We decided to move to Department Store, and rolled for noise:

  • Clumsy Ninja – not sneaky
  • Space Cat – not sneaky
  • Chubby Unicorn – sneaky

Professor drew 2 cards, and played another Basic Zombie, but then he added Vicious and Ravenous cards. Combat began and we choose to Fight, Shoot, or Escape:

  • Clumsy Ninja – shoot
  • Space Cat and Chubby Unicorn – fight

Zombie at the Department Store

Clumsy Ninja rolled for shotgun, got a  5 for 3 damage killing the zombie, which moved us into the Loot phase. Clumsy Ninja rolled so well for combat, we had her roll again for loot.  We got 4 supplies and 1 munitions:

  • Shotgun, energy drink, ninja spray, jumper cables, and C4

Chubby Unicorn took the energy drink, Space Cat took the shotgun and C4, and Clumsy Ninja took Ninja spray (of course) and jumper cables. We then entered the Rest phase, and Space Cat equipped her shotgun.

Loot from the Department Store

Next we decided to move to the Gun Store, because we didn’t have any shells for the shotguns, and Chubby Unicorn didn’t have a weapon. We rolled for noise:

  • Chubby Unicorn – not sneaky
  • Space Cat – not sneaky
  • Clumsy Ninja – not sneaky

Professor drew 3 cards and played another Basic Zombie and added Lucky to it. He also decided the Gun Store was haunted (he played Graveyard on it). Combat began, and we all chose to fight:

  • Space Cat – 2 damage
  • Clumsy Ninja – 1 damage

Chubby Unicorn didn’t need to roll because the zombie was dead. Now it was the Loot phase, and we got 1 supply card and 4 munitions:

  • bear trap, katana, baseball bat, hand cannon, and bullets

Loot from the Gun Store

Chubby Unicorn took the hand cannon and bullets, Space Cat took the baseball bat, and Clumsy Ninja took the katana (of course) and the bear trap. We entered our Rest phase, and Chubby Unicorn equipped her new hand cannon, Space Cat her baseball bat, and Clumsy Ninja equipped her katana and Ninja spray. Chubby Unicorn also discarded a Basic Supply to draw another munitions (bullets).

Our next stop was a House. We rolled for noise:

  • Chubby Unicorn – not sneaky
  • Space Cat – not sneaky
  • Clumsy Ninja – not sneaky

Professor drew 3 cards and played another Basic Zombie, which we all chose to fight:

  • Space Cat – 2 damage
  • Clumsy Ninja – missed
  • Chubby Unicorn – 1 damage

The zombie died, and we got loot! We got 3 supplies and 1 munition:

  • baseball bat, running shoes, provisions, bandages

Chubby Unicorn got the baseball bat (equipped in rest phase) and provisions and Space Cat got running shoes (equipped in rest phase) and healed her 1 damage with the bandages. We then decided to move back to the Supermarket because we wanted to get through some more of the Zombie deck. We rolled for noise, and we were all sneaky. Professor didn’t get to draw any cards, but he again played a Basic Zombie. We once again chose to fight. Space Cat used her baseball bat, rolled a 6, and killed the zombie. We then discarded 3 supply cards, and Professor discarded 7 cards.


We then decided to move to the other Supermarket because it had the best chance for the most supplies. We rolled for noise:

  • Chubby Unicorn – sneaky
  • Space Cat – not sneaky
  • Clumsy Ninja – sneaky

Professor drew one card and played an Exploding Zombie! (Basic Zombie + Exploding – explodes if dealt 3 total damage in combat). Combat began:

  • Chubby Unicorn – shoot
  • Space Cat – fight
  • Clumsy Ninja – fight

Exploding Zombie

Unfortunately, Chubby Unicorn missed (Professor got to draw a card because her hand cannon made noise), and Space Cat  missed. Clumsy Ninja used her katana and managed to do 2 damage to the zombie, but then she took 1 damage from the zombie. We fought again, and Clumsy Ninja finished off the exploding zombie (without it exploding). We got 6 cards in the Loot phase:

  • backpack, provisions, running shoes, noisemaker, jumper cables, football pads

Chubby Unicorn took provisions, football pads (equipped in rest phase), and noisemaker, Space Cat took the jumper cables (in case Clumsy Ninja needed to be revived), and Clumsy Ninja took the backpack and running shoes (equipped in rest phase).

Next stop was another House. We rolled for noise:

  • Chubby Unicorn – sneaky
  • Space Cat – not sneaky
  • Clumsy Ninja – not sneaky

Professor drew 2 cards and played an Exploding Ex-Survivor (5 life, drops 2 supplies and 1 munitions when killed, and explodes if dealt 3 total damage in combat)

Combat began:

  • Chubby Unicorn – shoot
  • Space Cat – fight
  • Clumsy Ninja – fight

Again Chubby Unicorn missed, and Professor drew a card. Space Cat dealt 1 damage as did Clumsy Ninja, who again took 1 damage from the zombie. We chose to go again, and this time Chubby Unicorn’s hand cannon did 3 damage (Professor drew a card) and Clumsy Ninja’s katana did 2 damage, which meant the zombie exploded! Clumsy Ninja rolled for damage and died! Space Cat didn’t take any damage, so she attempted to revive Clumsy Ninja with jumper cables.  She rolled a 4, and Clumsy Ninja regained 1 life. Woo! The zombie dropped bullets, smoke bomb, and football pads. For loot we got 3 supplies and 1 weapon:

  • baseball bat, bandages, ninja spray, energy drink

Chubby Unicorn took bullets and ninja spray (equipped during rest phase), Space Cat took the energy drink, and Clumsy Ninja took bandages (used to heal 1 life), football pads (equipped during rest phase), baseball bat (equipped during rest phase), and smoke bomb.

We decided to hit up the last House, and rolled for noise:

  • Chubby Unicorn – sneaky
  • Space Cat -not sneaky
  • Clumsy Ninja – not sneaky

Professor drew 2 cards and played a Basic Zombie but added Mutagenic and Thrilled (5 life)

Combat began:

  • Chubby Unicorn – shoot
  • Space Cat – fight
  • Clumsy Ninja – fight

This time Chubby Unicorn’s hand cannon did 3 damage (Professor drew a card), Space Cat’s baseball bat 1 damage, and Clumsy Ninja’s katana 2 damage. We got 4 supplies:

  • noisemaker x2, zom-b-gone, provisions

Chubby Unicorn took provisions and zom-b-gone, and Space Cat and Clumsy Ninja each took a noisemaker. Chubby Unicorn now had 3 provisions, so we headed back to the Supermarket. Chubby Unicorn didn’t roll well for noise, but used her ninja spray, so no one made noise. Professor played Triple Threat which meant he got to play 3 Zombies: 1 with Burning (if fight misses, take 1 damage). Everyone chose to fight:

  • Chubby Unicorn – baseball bat 1 damage
  • Space Cat – baseball bat 3 damage to burning zombie
  • Clumsy Ninja – katana 2 damage

We killed 2 of the zombies, which left 1 zombie at full health, so Clumsy Ninja took 1 damage but used football pads to absorb it. We chose to fight again:

  • Chubby Unicorn – baseball bat missed
  • Space Cat – baseball bat 2 damage
  • Clumsy Ninja – katana missed

Again Clumsy Ninja took 1 damage and used football pads to absorb it (football pads discarded), and we had to fight one more time to kill the zombie. Space Cat used her baseball bat to kill it. Chubby Unicorn discarded 3 provisions and Professor discarded 14 cards. He revealed that he only had 12 cards left in his deck, so we hunkered down, and Chubby Unicorn  discarded 3 basic supplies to make Professor discard 7 cards. We hunkered down once more, and Space Cat discarded 3 basic supplies to make Professor discard the rest of his cards.

Back to the Supermarket

Survivors win!

This is a really fun 1 vs all game, and it’s simple game play means it’s easy to learn. There was some confusion at the beginning on when cards could be played and the difference between provisions and basic supplies (all supplies can be basic supplies if played/discarded face down), but we quickly sorted all that out. It gives the zombie apocalypse a sense of humor. The text on the Ex-Survivor zombie card reads “So that’s what happened to Bill!” Of course your ability to survive heavily depends on the supplies and munitions you can get. Space Cat and Clumsy Ninja just couldn’t get ahold of any shells for their shotguns (I was lucky to get all those bullets), but they did some good damage with their baseball bat and katana. It’s definitely a game we’ll play again.
