CITY OF THE DEAD - The Board Game
It’s all gone to hell! You're a survivor, but there’s something you gotta do before you get out of town! Maybe it’s finding your husband, helping the guys from your precinct defend the hospital, getting your family to a safe zone or reporting for duty at the base.
On your own you're toast so maybe you'll hook up with some other survivors along the way, strength in numbers and all that. Maybe they'll help out, pull some strings with whoever is still out there to pull strings with. Don't forget the cops are out in force, hopefully they'll hold off the horde until the national guard get here or you could always give 'em a hand!
Can you make a last stand, unite the people of your town and hold back the tide of undead? Will you evacuate city blocks before they get infected? Can you get them to safezones or are you leading them into a trap? Will you lead the army or the police in counterattacks or try to figure out the cause of the threat with CDC? Will you help rally the townspeople and defeat the source of the zombies or leave ‘em to rot and get out of dodge with whatever and whoever you can find?
About The Game

Special features such as airports, power stations, hospitals, military bases and more will act as focal points for character goals and the survival of the town.Temporary features such as police barricades and safe zones will help survivors hold back the advance of the dead and places to send vulnerable citizens.
The military, police, gangs, desperate civilians, groups of survivors and hordes of undead are represented with stylish meeples or chunky counters.
In City of the Dead, the Zombies will have different powers each time you play and a different secret that if discovered could help the survivors win the game! As your survivor group grows you can try to call on more and more help from the authorities the cops, the army, airforce or CDC, especially if there's anyone with the right connections with you. However as the zombie's rise things are breaking down fast so don't hang around. Even the military and the cops won't hold out for long unless some real heroes get added in to the mix!
Each hero has a number of personal goals to win the game, or the players can work together to beat the zombies themselves.
