Each player controls from one (for 6 players) to four (solo game) "survivors", human beings in a zombie-infested town. In fact, "survivors" hastily change to "hunters" to smash zombies through and through. However, the team must constantly keep the balance between survival and slaughter: as the zombicide's going on, the "Danger level" is going up and infected are growing in numbers. Any misstep can turn to disaster.
Zombicide is a fun and easy game with cool minis in an archetypical, popular and comics-inspired environment. Ambiance is constantly kept between "beat'em up" and "survival horror" as characters keep on turning from preys to predators. Humor and gloom happily marry in a zombie-fest.
- 71 miniatures (28mm "Heroic" scale): 6 Survivors, 40 Walkers, 16 Runners, 8 Fatties and 1 Abomination
- 110 mini-cards (42 Zombie cards, 62 Equipment cards, 6 Wounded cards)
- 9 gaming tiles
- 6 dice
- 6 Survivor Identity Cards
- 24 advancement counters
- 4 Cars tokens (police car and pimp mobile)
- 18 Noise tokens
- 10 Objective tokens
- 12 Door tokens
- 6 Zombie spawn tokens
- 1 "First player" token
- 1 Exit point token
71 minis. A special effort has been given to detail and diversity: several models are available for most zombies of the same type (example: several models for "walker"-type zombies, including male and female versions).
9 double-sided gaming tiles. Scenarios take place on boards from two to nine tiles in a riot-devastated urban area. Characters move from zone to zone defined by walls and crosswalks. Designers were careful about the overall quality and playability of the tiles' illustrations.
Double-sided tokens. Objective tokens. Door tokens. Car tokens. Noise tokens. Zombie spawn zone tokens. More tokens than required indeed. In fact, enough of them are planned to create your craziest scenarios.
110 cards. Including Equipment cards and Zombie cards.
We're launching this Kickstarter to drive down production costs by making more copies. If Zombicide is the kind of game that tickles your fancy, then here are the various pledge levels. We appreciate any help we can get!
Bitten - Cover lithograph signed by Edouard Guiton, the legendary French concept artist for Confrontation!
Walker - Bitten + 1 promo Survivor miniature not available in the base game!
Nick, Bad Cop
”I do things by the book, my book!”
Lieutenant Nicholas Walker has sometimes been bad, and always been lucky. Corrupt and cocksure, Nick gets his man, anyway he can, even if it means doing things a normal cop wouldn’t do. Bluffing and bullying his way through the streets of New York, this highly decorated officer has put away hundreds of criminals and lined his pockets discreetly while he was at it.
Now, with no more crime and money meaningless, he desperately searches for his wife, rescuing and helping other survivors in the vain hope that someone has seen her.
Nick is available for all pledges $25 and over!
Runner - Bitten + 2 promo Survivor miniatures not available in the base game!
El Cholo, Zombie Hunter
“I’m not angry, I’ll show you angry… Joder! ”
No one seems to know this gruff latino’s real name but everyone calls him El Cholo.
Whether he minds, or even cares is unknown, El Cholo rarely speaks, preferring to let his twin machetes do the talking. A hardened farmhand or possibly an ex-cartel enforcer, putting Zombies down at close quarters is El Cholo's specialty, and damn! he's good at it. The survivors whisper stories of hopeless last stands and daring raids, and El Cholo walking out covered in (someone else's) blood.
Fatty - Runner + copy of Zombicide ($89 retail value). That's a 15% discount plus 2 exclusive miniatures and a signed lithograph!
Abomination - Fatty + 3rd special promo Survivor miniature - Dave the Geek and Zombicide dice! You get a copy of Zombicide and 3 exclusive miniatures and a signed lithograph and 6 custom dice!
Dave the Geek
“Yeah sure, take the shotgun if you want, I’ll take the... AMMONIUM... NITRATE!”
As far as he remembers, Dave always found reality to be terribly boring. So he locked himself up in an imaginary world and learned piles of useless stuff... useless until now. Dave is a fount of knowledge. His chemistry mastery makes him look like a superhero amongst other survivors. At least until he opens this mouth, then everyone remembers he’s a real geek.
Survivor - 2 x Abomination
Triplets - 3 x Abomination
Get Me A 6-Pack - 6 x Abomination
Paint The Town! - A hand painted copy of Zombicide, including 3 promo Survivor miniatures and a signed lithograph by Edouard Guiton. This set will be painted by Aaron Lovejoy, multiple Golden Demon winner!
I Am Legend - Abomination + Become a Survivor (or Zombie) in the next expansion! Send us a photo of yourself in the modern, contemporary clothes you'd like to be wearing, and a good headshot, and we'll take care of the rest!
Important note: For non-continental USA pledges, please add an additional $25 for shipping, and an additional $15 per box for shipping after the first box.
We've been totally blown away by the response on Kickstarter, in particular the enthusiastic response to the custom dice! So, if you want another spare set handy, here's your chance to get them! Just increase your pledge the necessary amount, a survey will go out at the end of the Kickstarter asking you which options you want!
Here's a set that isn't included in any level, in classic white with red engraving! Just add $10 to any pledge! 6x White Engrave Dice
Some Backers asked for extra custom Black Dice. $10 for 6x Engraved Black Dice. Abomination ($100) and above pledges already include this set.
Just add $15 to any pledge! 6x Glow in the Dark Dice. These are the same dice that are included in the $75k stretch goal. But everyone needs more glowing dice right?
Duplicate Tiles - Zombicide ships with 9 double sided tiles, so if you get this pack you can lay out all 18 tile designs in one enormous layout! This has a suggested MSRP for $29.99, so get it now at a 30% discount with free shipping! Just add to any Fatty or above pledge! Expected to ship with the main game. Comes with complete set of extra door / car tokens.
Who knew that a calculative and cold socialite would survive so well at the end of civilization? Zombie killing is hell on the manicure though.... This sharpshooting manipulative minx can be all yours! Ships with the Zombie Promo Survivors (Q2 2013).
You do not mess with Claudia. You do not talk to Claudia. You do not get inClaudia's way. Hire her for $10!
Marvin Redfield. Marvin is a bodyguard, shuttling the rich and famous around. Always a professional, he's used to gently deflecting the advances of neglected wives or wealthy widows.... until one of his clients got a little too aggressive and had to be put down! Now he's up to his eyeballs in mother-f***** Zombies! Get him for $10 added to any Abomination level or above pledge! Ships the same time as the Zombie Promo Survivors!
Eva Duran - She's got a sword, and she knows how to use it! This kickass Survivor is something we'll start sculpting now and ship to you at the same time the Zombie Promo Survivors go out! Just add $10 to your Abomination and above pledge!
Paint the Town includes these trays. Since we're doing them anyway, we thought some of you out in Kickstarter land might want some. So, if you want to paint your great Zombicide miniatures and still want to transport them around conveniently, this might fit your needs.These trays will be available for sale from Battlefoam later, just that shipping is free within the USA if shipped with your Abomination or above order. Outside the USA, please add $15 per set (sorry, these are bulky). $40 for a set of 2 trays. Just add the appropriate amount to your pledge if you're interested (Manage Pledge, green button on the Zombicide Kickstarter page) and we'll send you a survey after the Kickstarter to confirm your options.

Bios - who the heck are you guys?
If you read this far, you're almost a true believer, so here's a little more about the designers of Zombicide!
Nico worked in Rackham from 1999 to 2008. While wearing the “red dragon” shirt, Nico accompanied Rackham in its ascension. He worked on Rag’Narok, Confrontation 2nd to 4th edition,
In 2008, Nico lent his hand to Kraken Editions for the background of Alkemy Genesis. The Jade Triad arbors his signature.
In 2011, he worked with Studio Cyanide, developer of the Confrontation videogame, as a consultant, freelance author and playtester.
Jean-Baptiste Lullien, a.k.a. Ogre-Mercenaire
With a background in linguistics and information, J.-B worked for several years as a game designer for Rackham, on several projects including girls games with little horses and a fashion academy, numerous miniature games (even a kind of “marbles” monsters!), videogames and comics.
Raphael is one of the founders of Rackham, and together with another ex-Games Workshop employee Jean Bey, created the iconic game of Confrontation in 1996, and eventually leading its creative team.
Now a co-founder of Guillotine Games, a studio of french designers, Zombicide, a cooperative boardgame of survivors VS zombies, is his first project to be published as a game designer.
Percy de Montblanc
Percy has never worked in Rackham. Co-founder of Guillotine Games, he is in charge of all the tasks the other associates hate and he prepares coffee.
He is the executive producer of Zombicide and from time to time he has one or two good ideas that are systematically ignored.
