 You are an infected, aimless Zombie and with your fellow rotting mutants, you roam the apocalyptic future in search of beautiful pink Human Brains. Brains and more Brains is all that energizes you and your Zombie hordes very existence but as you search the devastated and infected towns beware the few resilient humans that are still left unaffected as they are tough, heavily armed survivalists who would like nothing more than to shoot you and your slow wandering, mutant Zombie brothers and to stop your relentless quest and monotonous chant, “Need more Brains!”.................... , “Need more Brains!”....................

The first to score twenty or more "Brains" is the finalist, preliminary winner and then the climax, as all other players get one more chance to steal the win and outscore the initial winner in the number of  "Brains" collected and be crowned the new winner.

Need more Brains is a no-brainer !

Reviews by real Players and Gamers- (not paid reviews, real game players)


Awesome game especially liked the catch up ability, it will wrack your Brains....                Sean Carrol  - 93 Made Games.

-- There is also a new "Solo"  mode which is very addictive. You strive to become a Super Zombie and leader of the entire Zombie Horde that is sweeping over the World. "Just one more go, I know I can become the Super Zombie and command the horde in its conquest to rule the World!", is often heard said by budding solo Zombie NmB players. In the Solo mode you have a limited number of Zombie adventure rounds to gather the most Brains you can before succumbing to the Human survivalist who are out to get you. What level can you achieve, can you get the 30 Brains required to become the Ultimate Super Zombie and rule the entire horde on their never-ending conquest of the World and their never ending chant?           

“Need more Brains!”....................    

-  Three types of Play -                                                                                                                        

 - Standard Play - where each player takes their turn and then deals for the next Player to take their turn to see how many "Brains" you can gather. Those living don't need them!        

- Horde Play - where all players play at the same time as a "Zombie Horde" and all players choose each turn to stay and face new dangers, or push on alone if needed. Only the fearless will stay in the longest but if you push your luck too far it only leads to disaster

- Solo Mode - you strive to become a Super Zombie and leader of the entire Zombie Horde.


 This game is like a "Black Jack" come Zombie, "push your luck" style game where each Zombie player tries to out-score their opponents by pushing their luck while trying not to Bust! (be shot by pesky Humans). For those who like a more interactive style game,  "Zombies! Need more Brains"  also has a "Horde" mode where all players play rounds together, at the same time deciding at what part in the  Zombie adventure each player will opt out, "Enough Brains", or stay in 'More Brains", on each fate card of the Zombie adventure round, until you have a pre-winner who has collected 20 or more Brains. Then a final climatic adventure with the other players who will try to risk it all to the max to see if they can steal the win from the preliminary winner and conquer all to be the new Zombie overlord and ultimate winner. This is still a "push your luck" style but with all players playing together in the same round so it is faster and a lot more interactive and quite a different play experience from the original game. You can chose the mode your group likes to play the most or "change it up" and play both styles for more longevity and playability of the game. 

 No risks! we are ready to POD print the product and all Artwork is finalised and ready to go. 

 "Zombies! Need more Brains" is only running a short campaign so don't miss out!               Make your Pledge NOW!! 

 - We need your help to make this game happen, so together "Let's Break Kickstarter"-

POD Games will be shipped immediately on the close of our campaign so you should receive them within weeks, not many months or years.
We hope, with your help, to achieve The Mega Awesome KickAss Stretch Goal -"Zombies! Need more Brains" Stretch Goal Level 1 - which means everyone who pledged for a Combo Pledge 3 or better will receive a FREE upgrade to a fully boxed shop ready mass production copy. Quotes have already be sourced and manufacturers are standing by, but this would make it a Print Run from overseas and shipped to you with several months waiting as per any normal Kickstarter game production run, but so that you will still get something to play with while you wait if this Goal is achieved we will send everyone a FREE PDF copy of the game so you can print and play and be having fun with this game while you wait for your FREE Deluxe production run copy of the game to arrive. We will have to wait until the end of the campaign to see if this Mega Awesome Goal was achieved and if so would hope to deliver the Deluxe production copy around December/January.
