I thought it would be fun to pass the time until the Gorgon is in our hands, so what better way then play some games together? We cannot all play Evolve together due to our platforms though…(sadness), but we can all play something else. Are you familiar with Zombie Dice? If you are, great! If not, check out this awesome TableTop video featuring Wil Wheaton at the 10:25 mark:
I thought Zombie Dice would be pretty fun, and if you look at it from the perspective of the monster hunting down and om-nomming the hunters’ brains…even better!
Zombie Dice is also an App, so you can get it on your mobile device. If you’d like to procure the actual dice you can find the game at Target, WalMart, or on Amazon of course. You can also, if you are willing, cut paper squares to draw from randomly in place of the dice. You will need to draw the symbols or write the words in 3 colors with the list provided below:
GREEN COLOR: 6 shots, 18 brains, 12 runners
YELLOW COLOR: 8 shots, 8 brains, 8 runners
RED COLOR: 9 shots, 3 brains, 6 runners
Color is important because it helps you determine if you want to keep pushing your luck. Red are the most lethal dice while greens are easy-peasy risks. If you are especially creative you can cut and glue your own paper dice from blank templates on-line or do something like @Bot below and utilize colored numerical dice.
- It’s not quite the same using cut paper, I admit, and rolling is a bit off. If you are using cut paper please note that you draw 3 pieces and reveal their faces. If you get for example 2 yellow runners and 1 green brain and want to continue you do not put the 2 runner pieces of paper back into your pile but set them aside and draw 2 more pieces at random from the pile (understandably the colors will differ for the newly selected papers). This differs from using dice because with the runner dice you would take those 2 same die and pick a third random die for the re-roll while keeping the brain aside for scoring. I know this is a bit wonky but, it’s just for fun…so…
Each time you post you must reveal your full turn. Keep rolling to keep adding score but if you get shot 3 times, you score no points, so it’s in your best interest to quit while you are ahead! You can provide photos if you wish for added flavor but this entire game comes with the understanding that it’s just a gentlemanly game between us all, and on your honor.
At the beginning or end of your post, put your turn number. Example, if it was your 3rd post of dice rolling, say Turn 3, and then record your total accumulated scores up until that point.
Shots Taken: 5
Brains/Hunters Killed: 7
You can also add a little fluff story of what went down on your rolling as well, to set the mood!
The goal will be who can procure the most brains in the least amount of turns taken by the day Gorgon is released for play. In the event of a tie it’s whoever got shot the least while so-doing.
Kinda silly to include this but hey, why not! An Evolve headband to the zombie monster that eats the most hunter brains!
