Survive the zombie apocalypse one move at a time.
Experience the outbreak of the zombie apocalypse firsthand in this turn-based action game. Zombie Ward mashes up the popular folk games Ninja and Zombie Tag into a raucous, fast-paced survival game. When the siren sounds and the first zombie is identified, everyone else is in a fight for survival. Humans and zombies alternate turns: humans flee and zombies pounce. The only way for the humans to survive is find the right key, hidden somewhere in the playing area, that will unlock the gates and let them out. The zombies win — of course — by feasting on all of the humans. It’s every living, dead and undead creature for themselves.
Zombie Ward is a light physical game for party and event settings. The game was designed to provide a quick burst of action for a variable number of players, and can quickly scale up or down to provide a fun, theatrical centerpiece for any event. It was originally created as an anchor game for Come Out & Play 2013’s After Dark event, and has also been played at IndieCade 2013 and IndieCade East 2014.
