Introducing After the Virus by Fry X Games!
While looking through our game shelf, this one seemed the most relevant to what's going on today and is also just a great game! 🤓
After The Virus is a cooperative deck building zombie game. All character boards have a specific set of cards that you start with. So one player can start with better weapons, more opportunities to escape zombies 🧟🧟♂️ or be equipped with traps to help kill zombies. 🧟♀️
What's cool about this game is with normal zombie games you typically take actions separately from other players. In After The Virus, players use cards simultaneously! (There are NO TAKE BACKS though 😱 So play as a team and don't play cards too fast!) 😂
There are 15 campaign missions to play through as a team. If one player dies, everyone dies! 💀 If a player reaches the campaign's objective, they still need to help the others make it too
Every round players draw up to 5 cards from their own draw pile. Any zombies are played face up on the table, 🧟♀️🧟♂️🧟which will attack at the end of the round if they aren't dealt with! 😬
If a player isn’t able to draw up to 5 cards, more zombies are added to their draw pile before being shuffled to form an increased deck to draw from.
Players use the remaining "non-zombie" cards in their hand to kill/evade zombies or to heal a player/save a survivor. (Depending on the mission objective)
It took a bit of time to fully understand the rules, but once we ironed out all the details, gameplay went smoothly and we even beat 4 missions in our first full play-through! 🤩
