Last Days: Zombie Apocalypse : A Game of Survival Horror
Author(s): Ash Barker
Last Days: Zombie Apocalypse is a skirmish-scale miniatures game of survival horror. It pits players against each other in a nightmarish near-future where the dead have returned to life and are feasting on the living.
Players build their own factions, representing desperate civilians, military personnel, or hardened survivors, and must explore, scavenge, and fight in order to survive another day. Rival gangs are only one of the dangers they face--mindless zombies wander the streets, driven by insatiable hunger and drawn by the sound of combat!
A gang's ability to scavenge is as vital as their combat ability, and players must ensure that they have the resources to survive in this hostile world. Scenarios and campaigns allow you to develop your gang, gain experience, and recruit new henchmen to build up your strength or replace the inevitable casualties of the zombie apocalypse.
"Here’s what I am already loving after just skimming over the basic rules--the zombies are just icing on the cake. The skirmish game is still your survivalist versus another team (or two or more). You pick a Leader--this can be a knight in shining armor, a thuggish bully, or a military guy. You then grow your group of survivalist by purchasing members who ‘fit’ with the leadership type you have selected. Weapons and skills factor into your decisions, too. After your group is gathered, you’ll pick a base of operations that has its own pros and cons depending on whether you’re looking for space to grow into or need more room for a larger starting team." - GeekDad
"Really easy to learn and really easy to teach. You don't have to go rule searching in this game." - Tracy George Productions
"A nice simple rule set that still allows for really great interaction...on the board between the players and the zombies." - GeekDad
