We need a board game theme generator.

The different variables could include:

1. Mechanic (dudes on a map, pick up and deliver etc.)
2. Core setting (medieval Europe, business world, space)
3. Special twist: (zombies, cannibals, Plague)


How about that simple game when we were kids where you'd get a piece of paper and someone would draw a head and fold it, pass it on and the next person would draw a body and pass it on and the final person would draw the legs - here people randomly choose an option from your categories, maybe add another category or two to get a bit of flesh, and then discuss how the game is going to work ... oh that could be batshit funny ... or just a plain mess.

That's easy to code. I just need a list of mechanics, core settings, and special twists

I think there are many classic games that could stand a zombie retheme.

Zombie chess is a no brainer
Zombies of Catan
Fury of Dracula: Zombie edition
Zombie Acquire.
Etc

I collect and play Warhammer. My “games with chainsaw tanks” quota is full.

I’m just surprised that this is the first zombie themed board game I’ve heard about

It's almost like board games thrive on established mythos that resides in public domain.

I'll just mention that hotel chains reanimate in Acquire without the retheme.
