Someone had mentioned the scarcity of Zombie related miniatures games, in the SciFi Greatcoat thread. I didn't wan't to derail that thread so I moved the discussion here to a new topic. I found 17 Zombie based wargames in about 30 seconds of Googling
I've always had a love of Zombie films. It all started when I was 14 and went to see The Dawn of the Dead (1978).
Besides watching Zombie flicks I also like gaming the era. This is a list of my favourite zombie games:
Dawn Of The Dead - original boardgame of the film which was commercial published but now available free on the web here.
Dead Of Night - free web boardgame with outstanding production values and a good game to boot. Available from designers page.
Last Night On Earth - a new commercial boardgame that is getting very good reviews and is on my wish list. From Flying Frog Productions.
Zombie Plague : Free downloadable boardgame from Fortress games. Somewhat reminiscent of the Dawn of the Dead board game, on one team are the humans, while on the other are the zombies.
Mall Of Horror - commercial boardgame by Nexus.Each player controls 3 characters: a blond girl, a big guy and a dude with a gun. They must escape the zombies by locking themselves in the stores.
Blight of the Living Dead - Free miniature game available here. A set of miniature rules for a Fantasy Zombie Slaughter Fest
Dead Walk Again - free miniature rules from here. A set of tabletop rules inspired by the ever-growing number of zombie movies which pitches a small group of heroes against hordes of zombies.
Zombies!!! commercial boardgame by Twilight Creations which has spawned 5 expansions and has great plastic figures.
ZombieTown commercial boardgame by Twilight Creations which is a spin off of Zombies!!!.
Dead & Alive - solitaire free zombie game available from Boardgamegeek.
Send More Brains - an attempt to capture the flavour of zombie movies in a fun, fast-playing miniatures game (FREE). Available here.
And when you have finished all your Zombie gaming I recommend reading World War Z the official history of the Zombie Wars by Max Brooks.
