The zombie apocalypse is upon us. Everyone is looking to get out alive, as well as save as many others as they can. But not everyone will be able to make it, and eventually, everyone might succumb to the zombie plague. At least, hopefully some might survive. Who does and how many is up to you in Ezcape, a new zombie survival card game that's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
EZCAPE is a turn based strategy and cooperative card game about Teamwork, Deception, Survival and...Zombies! It is easy to learn, quick to play and will keep you entertained for hours. Each player is tasked with trying to save as many Survivors as possible while simultaneously fighting to stop from being overrun by Zombies. As the game unfolds, the card probabilities makes it harder to stay alive and players end up being overrun and convert into Zombies.
GAMEPLAY THAT MAKES IT UNIQUE
Played in a Russian Roulette style with a single or double deck (depending on the number of players) of game cards ranging in values 2, 3, 5, 8 and 13. There are three types of cards - Red (Zombies), Blue (Survivors) and White (Zombie Traps). The game is mathematically designed to provide enough strategy such that though it is really simple to learn, yet, one can never really claim to master the game as it provides a good balance of strategy and luck. The goal is to keep the attacking Zombies to below 21, while simultaneously taking risks to save as many survivors as possible. When a player is eliminated and converts into a Zombie, they still continue to play, collect points and still influence the game for others. The game ends when half (50%) the players are converted into Zombies.
The campaign is about 1/2 of the way to its goal with still 22 days to go.
