January 13, 2017: Zombify Your Friday The 13th


Less than two weeks into 2017 and it's already Friday the 13th! That's an auspicious start to the new year, if I do say so myself. But why avoid the superstitious spookiness? Embrace it! Make it a horror-filled day with some of our zombie games.

Nothing celebrates Friday the 13th like Zombie Dice! You can't get more thematic than 13 dice for $13.13. Unless you have 13 players who are all 13-year-olds, but we'd rather take on the zombies. Zombie Dice makes a great quick game, and the expansions provide even more variety. Adding Zombie Dice 2 – Double Feature gives you three more dice, with new B-movie-inspired options! Plus, you get to eat Santa's brain. (It's not like he's using it; Christmas is over!) And don't forget about Zombie Dice 3 – School Bus, the chunky die that everyone loves. The bus is really just a zombie food truck, full of brains, but beware the dangerous double-shotgun! (Zombie Dice 3 is also running low again, even after its recent reprinting, so you might want to pick up that big yellow bus soon.)

The zombie fun doesn't end there! If you have a horde of friends, I Hate Zombies is for you. You can play up to 12 people (and we've played moderated games of up to 40 players!), with this easy-to-learn, fast-paced party game. Think Rock-Paper-Scissors with hilarious special powers and the ability to turn your friends into zombies. If you're a Munchkin fan, then Greg Hyland's new Munchkin Zombies Guest Artist Edition will give your favorite undead a fresh new look. Well, as fresh as rotting flesh can be. Check out this interview with Greg to get some insight on his art necromancy. 

Pick up any of these shambling games and expansions at your local game store today! And just remember; zombies aren't real. Right?
