About this project
Here's a convenient link showing you everything you get at the $100 and $150 pledge levels, as well as all optional items.
Zombicide is a cooperative boardgame for 1 to 6 players, from ages 10 and up.
Each player takes up the role of 1 to 4 survivors, each with unique abilities, and play with his teammates against zombies controlled by simple rules and a deck of cards. The more zombies you kill, the more skilled you get and the more zombies will appear. The only way for your team to survive and achieve victory is... Zombicide!
New rules highlights
This Kickstarter is the follow up to the boardgame hit of 2012, and introduces the Toxic City Mall and Season 2: Prison Outbreak. All products are fully compatible, except that Toxic City Mall requires either Season 1: Zombicide or Prison Outbreak to play
Toxic City Mall
Shopping malls are a classic zombie movie setting... experience Toxic City Mall and “shopping” will get a brand new meaning! Toxic City Mall is an expansion usable in Season 1 AND Prison Outbreak.. It contains new features to expand your Zombicide games and enrich your experience with new friends and enemies, as well as new game tiles, equipment cards and rules.
- 4 mall-themed reversible game tiles
- 43 miniatures including 4 new survivors in their human and zombivor versions, 29 Toxic Zombies miniatures and the Zombivor versions of Season 1 survivors.
- 28 Equipment cards
- Tokens to improve your missions, such as barricades and rubble coming in two sizes to block paths and maximize the tactical aspects of your missions.
- New rules and game modes such as Zombivor rules, how to play dead, and Ultrared mode to reach superheroic levels and use the marvelous Ultrared weapons.
- Expected MSRP - $50
Season 2: Prison Outbreak
Season 2: Prison Outbreak, is designed as a playable game in its own right, in the same way the Season 1 game was. A new player can enter the Zombicide universe with this box, as it contains everything needed to play as a standalone game. Even more mutated zombies roam the streets, becoming more terrible than ever.
- 9 brand new, reversible, prison-themed, game tiles
- 90 miniatures including 6 survivors in both their human and “zombivor” versions, with 78 zombies including berzerker zombies
- New equipment cards such as baseball bats, shotguns, katana, concrete saws and even gunblades...
- Tokens to customize your missions: doors of various size, objectives, switches, barbwire, observation towers, and a security gate meant to rotate on the board to change the way you move around the prison corridors!
- Expected MSRP - $100
In Prison Outbreak, Six survivors of various backgrounds, such as a family man, an urban native or a heavy metal fan, battle to purge a zombie-filled prison into a shelter. Many challenges and surprises await you along the 10 mission-campaign featured in the rulebook…complete with an alternate ending!
Your team will engage in close-quarter combat in dangerous prison blocks and interact a lot with the board itself. Switches will open and lock doors, security zones will change the way you move around and observation towers will expand your view of the surroundings.
To succeed, however, you’ll have to go toe-to-toe with the bloodthirsty Berserker Zombies, who are immune to ranged weapons. The battle will be very personal and really dirty.
As a special bonus, we’re also throwing this mini-expansion. These critters may be dead, but their teeth are still sharp and they’re more deadly than ever. If you see these Zombie Dogz coming, it’s time to RUN!
Expected MSRP - $20

Who are we?
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. Since Zombicide Season 1, he's been locked in the office and let out for occasional walkies.
Help spread the word and everyone wins with more goodies and upgraded games!

Just pick what you want and add the appropriate amount to your pledge by clicking Manage Pledge from the Zombicide Season 2 Kickstarter page - we'll sort out the details after the Kickstarter ends.
Risks and challenges
From past experience, there are some vagaries in terms of timing when it comes to anything produced in China, such as:
We've done our best to minimize this as far as possible, and we are always happy to refund pledges if for some totally unforeseen reason the game can't be delivered at all. Since the game is 90% complete, we don't believe this is in the least bit likely - we've successfully delivered Zombicide and Sedition Wars, our first two Kickstarter projects, and will be shipping Guilds of Cadwallon shortly.
We also have two other ongoing projects, Relic Knights and Rivet Wars that are both in production - please refer to those individual project pages if you'd like to check the progress there. These projects are entirely independent of Zombicide: Season 2 - they have completely different development teams and have no effect on the production flow or development of Zombicide: Season 2.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Yes, just pledge the appropriate amount and we'll sort it out after the Kickstarter ends in our proprietary CoolMiniOrNot Kickstarter Pledge Manager.
Short answer, no. Long answer: Based on past experience, in the USA, west coast rewards take longer to arrive. Within the EU, shipping takes several days if there are many rewards to send out, and may not go out at the same time as USA/Rest of the world rewards. It all depends on where the games happen to be. We endeavor to ship everything out as quickly as possible but there will be a difference depending on where in the world you are, and possibly the rewards you request, so please manage your expectations accordingly.
We will be able to ship within the EU from the UK. Shipping will still cost the same as we'll need to deal with customs and VAT on your behalf if you're in the EU and to pay our shipping service.
This will mean that you won't have any issues with possible customs queries, additional tax or other hassles, making the whole experience that much smoother!
The Raise the Dead Pledge level does not come with the promo models for Zombicide Season 1. We will also not be reissuing the exclusive promo models from Season 1, just like we won't reissue the exclusive models for this Kickstarter once we're done - we'd rather look forward than back.
We will not be reissuing the promo models from the Season 1 kickstarter.
All of the contents for the Raise the Dead pledge level will be shipping at the same time. This is for 2 reasons. The first is that we have to wait for the reprint because we are almost out. The second reason is so we do not have to charge more for shipping.
The kickstarter is for the English language version of the game only.
