About this project

Zombies are scary, deadly and carnivorous creatures right? Not this time, they're cute, yucky and smelly Babies! Zombie Babies is a humorous character building card and dice game. 

The aim of the game is to get the most XP points, by completing quests which involves killing zombies, collecting items and building your characters stats. Ever wondered how a baby can help during a Zombie apocalypse well now you know. Warning: you may look at babies differently after this game!

It was any other day, mummy dropped you at the nursery and gave you a kiss goodbye. Later in the afternoon you were taken upstairs for your nap when you started to hear the screams. The grown-up who carried you upstairs put you in the cot and ran to the door, she let out a high pitched scream, then yelled ‘they’re all dead’. She ran down the corridor, you could hear the thumping on the stairs and then nothing. The nursery was quiet and still, then you started hearing gurgling, giggling and something being dragged down the corridor. Ducking down under the covers in the cot you saw him... one of the babies, he was covered in blood, his skin green, his eyes yellow. He was a Zombie! 

The nursery has been overrun by baby zombies, eating all the grown-ups! How will you get home? When mummy comes to get you they’ll eat her, you need to kill them all before she comes! You’ll need strength, intelligence, bravery, a weapon or two and probably a nap in the middle.

Zombie Babies is a game of building your characters' attributes (strength, intelligence, bravery) and earning experience. 

  • Build your Hero - Improve on your skills and gain items to help you complete quests and defeat zombies.
  • Complete Quests - Choose to fight a zombie or choose a quest to find items and build on your 3 stats, to make future questing easier.
  • Take a Nap - Too scared to venture forth? Regain your health or energy before embarking on your next quest.
  • Player Interaction - Use special cards to help yourself or make life harder for your opponents.

Each quest requests you to complete a set to skill tests by rolling dice to test your characters stats individually.

You roll the number of dice equal to your characters stat that matches the test requirement on the Quest card. Get that number of symbols on your dice and you get the rewards listed at the bottom of the card, these can be an Item, an increase to your characters stats or XP.

If you fail you might lose some stats you gained earlier in the game or health or energy.

Quest cards include a small funny story which players can choose to read.

If the quest card contains a slingshot icon in the bottom left you'll get to pickup an item from the top of the Item deck. These cards will increase your stats and give you extra damage (re-rolls).

However beware the other players might have a trick or two up their sleeve to leave you behind and fall prey to the many zombies wandering the nursery. Special cards spice up the game play and allow you to affect others turns making them weaker or help yourself overcome obstacles in your way.

At the end of each game a random Boss card will appear, all other quests will disappear and players will have to fight the Boss to the death to survive!

After completing quests and defeating zombies you keep the card and place it under your hero building your stats and XP. On the left hand side of the Hero card there are XP rewards to work towards. Be warned that if you fail to complete a quest or defeat a zombie you may need to loose a card decreasing one of your stats and any other benefits it gives!

We at Honeysuckle Games love board games. It's become some what of an obsession slowly growing for a few years. We enjoy a range of games and continuously buy new games and back games here on Kickstarter (stupidly on our personal account). During all our gameplay we feel we've found a gap for new games for others to enjoy as much as we do!

Kickstarter is the platform to get this game to you. Having backed a variety of games and waited patiently for that knock on the door months down the line, we know what its like for you guys and will do everything we can to make sure you have a wonderful Kickstarter experience.

We've got a lot more Stretch Goals planned, from improving the card and box quality to more Quest, Zombie, Item and Special cards so get backing!

Risks and challenges

As with any Kickstarter project there are always risks, however we have tried to reduce these risks as much as possible by reducing the complexity of the project and working with reputable manufactures and distributors.

DESIGN RISKS
The game is completely designed and has been play tested thoroughly. There will be no delay in waiting for designs to be finalised or the game to be balanced.

PRODUCTION RISKS
We have been working with Panda Manufacturing to make sure this project will be produced to the highest quality.

SHIPPING RISKS
There is always a chance a game can go missing or components broken, however we are working with quality distributors to ensure your game gets to you. Please make sure you have a valid shipping address and if you plan to move please provide the address you will be living at when the game ships, estimated for October 2017.

UPDATES
We will do our best to keep you informed via Kickstarter updates as to the status of the game. We assure you that you will be the first to know of any developments that are out of our control as soon as we know.

We promise to do everything in our power to get the game delivered to your door.
