I really wanted to like Zombies but after a few games I can say that I probably won't be playing again. Roll, move, more zombies, more bullets, more cards, more hearts. Get killed, lose your stuff, start over at the beginning. That is Zombies in a nutshell. Such a light game shouldn't take more than an hour to complete. I had two games go over two hours. I can play a wargame that lasts 10 hours but the payback in fun for Zombies just isn't worth the time invested. The designers should have remedied this with the second edition but really didn't. Last Night on Earth is a much better game and I recommend that instead to anyone who's a fan of zombie horror.
As mind numbing as the zombification process itsel

Flip a tile, place it on table, play a random card, roll to move, roll to kill zombie. Repeat ad nauseum. Game ends when Helicopter Pad tile is flipped. Nearest person to where it is placed wins. A game from Ameritrash's dark side and not in a good way.
