Giant Squirrels vs Zombies is a fun strategic squirrel maniac tabletop game in a twisted version of the Zombie Apocalypse. You are playing in a zombie post apocalyptic world where the human race survived by transforming themselves in to giant Squirrels by consuming various magical potions and tinkering with strange devices. The game has two game mode, deck only and deck + board mode.
In board mode you are challenged with three types of tiles to land on. Green, orange and red. You need to select the best path based on your cards at hand as a red tile can be lethal without protection. You win the game by transforming grandpa in to a Giant Squirrel and go across the board to save grandma on the other side.
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 path they would not like to.
Each player starts with 3 cards.
First player round
1. Consume 1 nut, if you don’t have one you turn in to a human and have 2 turns to turn back to a squirrel.
2. Use cards (both player with turn and offensive players against this player can use cards)
3. Throw dice and select your path. Take a card with the same colour as the tile you stand on.
You know have until next turn to decide how to defend yourself from this card if its needed. Give the dice to the next player.
At each intersection you can change your path towards an easier less rewarding or shorter more dangerous road. The first to pass the finish line is the winner, just be aware of traps set by your fellow friends. You also need to be sure 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 lethal human form. As an example, you stand on an orange tile and hit one on the dice. Taking the short route would give you a red tile and this could be dangerous without any defensive cards in hand. So, you decide to take a longer route to survive this round.
You win the game by going from the Grandpa tile to the Granma tile and transforming her in to a squirrel, so she can survive the apocalypse.
- Red: Dangerous card, can be very bad or very good so you are taking a high risk taking one of these cards.
- Orange: Medium danger, could be good or bad
- Green: Safe to take card, but not as exiting as the Orange or Red.
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.
