All Things Zombie

Having noticed that this game had just come back in to stock at iguk.co.uk I decided to pick up a copy. It's much the same rule set as the original ATZ only with cardboard tokens so you can get started immediately without hundreds of zombie miniatures. Also you get a couple of double-sided boards divided into hexes for movement. Overall the boards and tokens are good quality, although the game cards are a little cheap. I think they might start to show wear after regular use. The details on the board are good and we found the layout of buildings and terrain often (but not always!) made for good escape routes - the hallmark of any good zombie adventure. It's a co-operative game. All of the players are on the same side and the game mechanics take care of the zombies' actions. Having said that, I believe there is a competitive mode of play somewhere in the rules also.
