Defective Yeti (Matthew Baldwin, one of my favorite bloggers, funny and smart) has once again graced his faithful readers with a three part review of Halloween games – the first post is about zombie games. I think it’s neat that one of them, Zombie in my Pocket, is a print-and-play.

Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game: Though a relatively recent addition to the genre (it came out last year), the growing consensus is that this is the best zombie game on the market. LNoE puts some players in the role of Heroes and the rest as Zombies, fighting tooth and nail (and, of course, chainsaw) in the heart of a small town. The best thing about LNoE is it’s replayability: the game comes with five different scenarios (with more available online), each of the playable Heroes is unique (the Hot Nurse can heal, the Sheriff always has a revolver, etc.), and the rulebook includes an “Advanced” section in case the basic game just doesn’t include enough dynamite for your liking. Plus, an expansion was just released, ensuring enough variability for many Halloweens to come.

All three parts are up – zombies are here, vampires and witches here, and “miscellaneous malevolence” here.
