"SCIENCE! In the pursuit of ever greater levels of productivity, man has TWISTED both plants and animals to his own ENDS. In so doing, we have inadvertently changed ourselves...
Now, SHAMBLING KILLING MACHINES roam the RUINS OF OUR WORLD. It is time to engage in ZOMBICIDE!
Team up. Gear Up. Level Up. Take 'em down!"
From the box:
"Zombicide is a collaborative game for 1 to 6 players, for ages 13 and up.
Take the role of a Survivor, each with unique abilities, and harness both their skills and the power of teamwork against the masses of unthinking, blood craving Zombies! The infected horde is controlled by simple rules and a deck of cards. Unfortunately for you, there are a lot more zombies than you have bullets...
Play 10 scenarios on 10 different maps made from the included modular map tiles, or create your own.
Find weapons, kill zombies. The more zombies you kill, the more skilled you get, the more skilled you get, the more zombies appear.
Bullets, blades, cars, you name it, the only way out is Zombicide!"
