Giant Squirrels vs Zombies is a strategic, squirrel-filled tabletop game for 2-6 players set in a twisted version of the Zombie Apocalypse. The human race has survived in this post-apocalyptic world by transforming themselves into Giant Squirrels by consuming various magical potions and tinkering with strange devices.
Your goal is to transform Grandpa into a Giant Squirrel and get him safely across the board to rescue Grandma on the other side. On your way, you will run into three different colors of tiles: green, orange, and red. Green tiles are the safest, while red tiles can be lethal without protection. You need to select the best path based on your cards in hand. You need to collect defensive cards, potions, and nuts to survive. You will also collect attack cards that you can use against your fellow players to steal their nuts or force them down a more dangerous path.
Each player starts with three cards.
1. Consume one nut. If you don’t have any, you turn in to a human and have two turns to turn back to a squirrel before the zombies eat you!!
2. Use cards (both the active player and opponents can use cards).
3. Roll the die and select your path. Take a card with the same color as the tile you stand on.
You now have until next turn to decide how to defend yourself from this card if needed. Pass the dice to the next player.
You win the game by being the first to travel to the Grandpa tile to the Grandma tile and transform her into a squirrel so she can survive the apocalypse. Just be aware of traps set by your “friends!” At each intersection, you can choose between an easier, less rewarding route, or a shorter, more dangerous one. You also want to try your best to have at least one nut in your backpack before the next turn, else you will starve to death and be forced to take a potentially lethal human form.
Card TypesThere are basically two different card types, defensive cards and action cards. Each card comes in three different colors:
Red: Most likely it will hurt you badly, if its not a cute pony or something.
Orange: It could be a unicorn, but more than likely its a Zombie
Green: Fluffy unicorns and nuts, this is the stuff you want. But it will take you on a longer journey to grandma collecting these cards.
Aaaah, have to run... need to drink potion... Zombies.... outside.... dooor.... aaah. Talk later
BE AWARE of Grandpa
Dynamite tail is a card you can use to steal nuts from your friend, if your friend is out of nuts... well then, he/she is in a lot of trouble. Having a good stack of nuts is always good... just ask any squirrel.
You stand on a red tile and a Zombie attacks you, it’s good that you have a flamethrower at hands. Now you can turn the Zombie in to a BBQ.
Now this card is an action card that you can use against a friend. It’s a duel action card... select a friend... duel him with a head slap. (Please be gentle, don’t hit your friend to hard) Now this card is an action card that you can use against a friend. It’s a duel action card... select a friend... duel him with a head slap. (Please be gentle, don’t hit your friend to hard). The dual goes this way, throw the dice, when it hits 3, then the first to slap gets half of the other nuts.
Turns your friend in to a human again, now he/she is forced to transform back, or he/she will lose the game.
Attack the Zombie headquarters in Florida so that you can increase the amount of nuts you have at hand.
Who knew that a horse’s tail could be magical!?
There are also red, orange and green cards that do nothing. Like you meet an ordinary horse. So you can trust lady luck and take a more dangerous track.

- Card design to digital paintings for Deck printing, we are using freelancers and not major companies to produce this.
- Game creation
- Packning and shipping
Anyways, we got excited and made an xmas cover. Now help us make this game a reality. The game, rulebooks and designs are done, but printing the game will cost more money than we have at the moment.
Now we hope you like our game, there is even powerful wizards in it...

Risks and challenges
We have the manufacturing chain setup, cards designed so the only fear we see is that there isn’t enough Squirrels left in the world to fight off the Zombie Apocalypse.
