Great Zombie Board Games

Updated on April 30, 2013

Family Games Night...Zombie Style

Who doesn't want their family and friends to just turn into zombies occasionally? Here's a chance to see them turn to zombies and beat them off, or even work together with them to overcome vast hoards of the undead. I love playing board games with friends, and with these games I can incorporate my love of zombies as well.

Zombies!!!

Players play survivors struggling through city streets that are awash with zombies. They are trying to get to the helipad and escape the infested city. At the end of each turn, the player moves the zombies one square.

The first player to get the the helipad and kill the zombies there, or the first to kill 25 zombies is the winner of the game.

Multiple expansion packs available for this game give it a great deal of replayablility.

Zombie Movies

Here's a zombie movie to create some atmosphere while you're playing your game.

Last Night on Earth

With one person playing the zombies and everyone else playing the survivors, it's up in the air whether the humans or the zombies are the ones that will win the day.

A hand of cards determines what weapons and special moves are available to the zombies and the heroes. Dice rolls determine the outcome of conflict. Each different scenario has a different win situation.

With a modular board that changes the layout of the town every game and different scenarios, this game has loads of replayablility
