Zombie Dice the press-your-luck dice game

Zombie Dice is a simple push-your-luck dice game, that’s small enough to take and play anywhere – or stuff in a Christmas stocking. Your goal is to roll as many brains as you can without getting shotgunned thrice.

On your turn, take 3 random dice from the dice cup and roll ’em. Brains are good – that’s what you’re after; Footprints means some tasty brains are running away from you on two feet; and Shotgun Blasts are just plain bad news – poor zombie. Set aside any Brains and Shotgun Blasts you rolled, draw back up to 3 dice – no peeking when you draw them now! – and roll again – if you dare. Three shotgun blasts and you’re dead and lose all the brains you accumulated that turn. However, you can stop and eat, er bank, the brains you’ve acquired, instead of rolling again and pushing your luck. The first player to accumulate 13 brains wins.

Zombie Dice is small and portable, so it makes a great stocking stuffer. Its two expansions, Zombie Dice 2: Double Feature and Zombie Dice 3: School Bus, Zombie Dice Score Pad and the Zombie Dice Brain Case – a more durable, plastic dice cup with a twist-off lid – can also be easily stuffed into a stocking.

Zombie Dice 2

Zombie Dice 2: Double Feature is the perfect fit for Christmas. It introduces three character dice: the Hunk, the Hottie, and – most apropos for the season – Santa Claus! It also adds three new ways to play. The Hunk has a double-shotgun icon, but if you eat his brain, you score double. The Hottie has two shotguns and three feet icons, making her fast AND dangerous. Santa Claus has three special gift icons on his die – a helmet, an energy drink, and a double brain – which makes for a very merry undead Christmas!

Zombie Dice supports two or more players, takes 10 to 20 minutes to play and can be taught in a single round.
