About

Unfortunately, Zombie Doctor and The Classic Horror Expansion Pack did not reach its funding goal. However, thanks to everyone who backed it and supported it. You were great!

You can still buy the Zombie Doctor base game from our official website www.zombiedoctor.co.uk or grab it from Amazon.

The Zombie Doctor base game is a fun and frantic card-turning game. Amputate, reattach and swap limbs in a desperate bid to stay alive. It's your turn not to turn!  

You're stranded in a hospital during the zombie apocalypse. Will you help or hinder your medical colleagues?

The Classic Horror Expansion Pack has four horror legends trying desperately not to turn into their nasty alter-ego: 

  • The Invisible Man
  • Dracula
  • The Mummy
  • Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde

They perform horrific experiments on themselves but only make things worse! 

Let them run riot in the hospital amongst the medical team, and see who survives or keep the monsters and medics separated; the game plays exactly the same either way!

The Classic Horror Expansion Pack needs the Pain or Gain Cards from the base game.

  • The games are small enough to fit in your pocket and are suitable for travelling or if you have a spare hour with friends and family. 
  • Unique gameplay with rapid card-turning action!  
  • It's easy to learn but the elements of luck and strategy will keep avid board gamers entertained and challenged.  
  • It's a casual, funny and surreal card game - where else can you chop off Dracula's arm and surgically reattach it to your torso?
  • We are offering FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING!
  • Both games will be delivered in time for Halloween.
                                                                          
 
                                 

Zombie Doctor was influenced by my love of 80s comics and cartoons, zombies and casual games. 

After some heavy binging on The Walking Dead, and my wife ploughing through Grey's Anatomy, the idea for Zombie Doctor slowly emerged from the back of my brain.

After several prototypes and intense playtesting, the game developed into the fun and balanced game you see here today.

The Classic Horror Expansion Pack originated from my admiration for older horror movies. 

I really like the concept of modern zombies clashing with epic monsters! I did a lot of research to make sure the artwork complimented as many of the books, films and TV shows as possible. I hope my passion for the project has oozed onto the cards!

Hi!  

I'm Colin Hutton; the creator, designer, artist, accountant and coffee maker behind Zombie Doctor and the expansion. 

I started off in the world of publishing before drifting into web design and graphic design. I've got 10 years' experience in the field.

I've had two other creative Kickstarter projects funded (as well as being delivered on time and in budget).

As I want to continue making games in the future, it made sense to become an official games publisher. Moving forward, I'll be known as Gimme Games.

                      

Risks and challenges

The reality is, there's going to be potential risks and issues. When manufacturing a game, the biggest contenders are printing issues and shipping delays.

Fortunately for you, I've been through this whole process from start to finish. I'm aware of the pitfalls and know how to avoid them as much as possible.

I'm working with Print Ninja again, who did a great job with Zombie Doctor. The cards were incredibly high quality and I'm delighted they are manufacturing my game again. They have a great team and are superb when it comes to quality control and shipping logistics.

Also, all the artwork is complete. That's no small thing! A few clicks of the mouse and it's good to go. Apart from minor tweaks and edits after the Kickstarter, this game can go into production as soon as I receive the funds. You should also get the game in time for Halloween.

This will be a very smooth running project.

I currently don't intend to use a Pledge Manager. I want to keep this campaign as simple as possible and don't want to make pricing and add-ons confusing. However, if this becomes a big success, I will obviously re-evaluate the situation.

Thanks!
