About this project
ZomBlocko - Using cards, dice, and ZomBlocko blocks, defend your house from attacking zombies all while scavenging for food, supplies, and weapons for yourself and your fellow survivors.
Zomblocko comes with an instruction guide, a deck of 180 scavenger cards, and 32 ZomBlocko blocks, enough cards and blocks for up to a four player game. You can play with two, three or four players... add more games and you can add more players or each player can have more pieces to expand their gameplay! There really is no limit to how many people can play or how many game pieces a player can have!
Each player receives a "Survivor" block... this is you! You'll need to scavenge for supplies and weapons to stay happy, healthy, and safe!
Each player receives a shelter for protection. Each shelter consists of a door and two windows. Scavenge for supplies to fortify the door and windows for extra protection from attacking zombies! (Having another copy of the game enables you to expand the size of your shelter giving you extra room for more supplies and survivors.)
Gather brains, blood, and hearts to control your own hoard of zombies to attack other players, steal supplies, infect survivors, and win the game!
Scavenge for food, water, tools, weapons, and supplies to help protect yourself and your fellow survivors from from attacking zombies.
Gather brains, hearts, and blood to control your own zombies that can then be used to attack other players and infect their survivors!
The survivor expansion pack allows you to expand the game play by having other people with you in your shelter. Additional survivors enables you to gather more supplies, perform additional tasks, and help you fight off attacking zombies!
BE IN THE GAME! Choose the $250 reward level and have your name and custom artwork of YOU used as an actual survivor in the game! You will also have your own zombie apocalypse survivor bio, special skills, and your weapon of choice!
Risks and challenges
We are still working on the design for all the scavenger cards. The examples of the game pieces above are rough drafts. Expect the final artwork to be much better than what you see here!
The biggest challenge for this game is the cost of manufacturing. In addition to the 180 scavenger cards (and 30 survivor cards in the expansion deck,) each game comes with 32 custom game blocks. The manufacturing of the custom game pieces account for almost the entire amount of our fundraising goal!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Each ZomBlocko game contains enough pieces for a four player game. If playing with only two players you have the option of expanding the gameplay by doubling your game pieces (expanding the size of your shelter, more room to hold more supplies, an additional survivor in the shelter, more zombies, etc...) or if you have more than one game you can expand the game play for each player or add more than four players to the game.
We are currently working on a short video that will better explain how the game is played along with more details about the rules of the game. We hope to have this completed soon and will post it the moment it's available.
