*third squad board still in production
Zpocalypse is a survival board game set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Two to four players start in a basement/fallout shelter which can lead out to several base locations or even through the tunnels to sewer grates throughout the transformable board. Their survivors are trying to make it day to day in a world torn apart from the walking dead.
As in any survival game one needs food, guns, ammo, and more. Players go out into the wasteland and scavenge for supplies, or perhaps to find a new gun or melee weapon to fend off the next zombie attack.
In addition to gathering supplies, each player forms and controls their own squad. Each squad works to fortify the base(s). However your walls and barbed wire won’t hold the dead for long, and they’re getting hungry.
Player's receive victory points for killing zombies, building defenses, and successfully completing goals. Victory points show who is soldiering on the best in this wasteland. The final tally of points determines the winner. Victory points also act as experience points for leveling up a character.
The game combines combat, resource collecting, character development, team play, and strategy towards the goal of surviving in the Zpocalypse!

Zpocalypse is not just a fun game to play, it's an experience. You're thrown into a world where you have to work together with your fellow survivors or risk perishing to the overwhelming number of zombies. It’s a tense game of careful choices:
- Do you go for another weapon?
- Do you go Kamikaze on a group of zombies with just an axe?
- Or do you run the other way with your tail between your legs?
This myriad of choices adds to the fun of the game, and leads us into our next segment, Re-playability.
Zpocalypse, by design is a highly modular format game. The tiles used, as the game board, allow them to be placed in nearly any orientation, with the ability to have expansion tiles added in later on down the road. This adds for a much varied landscape and new experience every play through. This modular style of play has been so successful, that we have found many people who kept coming back to play more and more Zpocalypse.
At several conventions we would have people come back the next day, or even later in a same day, to play another round. What shocked us was, at a recent game demo day at a local board game store, we had two repeat players who brought friends to show the game.
So far nearly everyone who has played our game has had an enjoyable experience and a desire to play again and again!

And even if you're unclear about a certain aspect of game play, we will be including Quick Response (QR) codes on each page section, that you can easily scan with your smart phone, that will link to tutorial videos on that particular topic.
We would like to produce Zpocalypse with the best miniatures humanly possible. As you may or may not know, including miniatures in a board game of this scope adds a lot to the manufacturing process. Below is our artistic concept of what we'd like our miniatures to look like.
