No. of Players: 1-2
Playing Time: 60-300 minutes.
From the Publisher:
A SOLO-DUO gritty, realistic zombie survival card game set in a suburban neighborhood. Plays in 1-4 hours depending on the scenario.
Your characters start with a heroic action, loot, pawn, & a backpack organized using the player mat. You deal the neighborhood map in 1 of 4 patterns depending on the scenario.
A game turn is one “day”. It has 3 action phases–dawn, day, night–and 1 reckoning phase when survivors must eat food or starve.
Players scout locations by rolling for encounters & battle them on a hex-based universal battlefield. Battles won win rewards, clear the location (flipping the card), and end your turn. If you retreat from a battle, you must clear the location you retreat to or die trying.
The game ends when you meet the end condition of the scenario, or if your survivors die.
