Description:

Zombicide: Black Plague takes the zombie apocalypse into a fantastical medieval setting!

The arcane powers of the Necromancers have unleashed a zombie invasion in the age of swords and sorcery, and it's up to your group of straggling survivors to not only stay alive during these dark times, but to take back the realm and punish those responsible for the apocalypse!

Zombicide: Black Plague allows you take control of paladins, dwarves, knights, and magicians, wielding powerful swords, crossbows, and even magic spells to defeat the zombie hordes and its Necromancer overlords.

The classic Zombicide rules have been revamped for this new incarnation of the game, while still retaining the nonstop action, tense atmosphere and easy-to-learn rules that made Zombicide a classic.

Equip your survivor with equipment like chainmail armor or shields to defend against the undead, pick up spell books to perform fantastic enchantments, or light up a pool of dragon bile to create an all-consuming inferno of dragon fire!

Take on the zombie invasion from the medieval streets to secret vaults that create quick passages through the citadel (and often hold special artifacts). Chase down the elusive Necromancers to keep them from multiplying the zombie masses.

And tackle a whole new set of missions through which your group of survivors will become the heroes of the land (or the last victims of the zombie massacre).

Zombicide: Black Plague is a cooperative game where one to six players face hordes of Zombies controlled by the game itself. Each player controls one to six Survivors in a fantasy world invaded by Zombies. The goal is simply to complete the Quest objectives, survive, and kill as many Zombies as possible!

Zombies are slow and predictable, but there are a lot of them. Watch out for their Abomination and Necromancer bosses, too! Survivors use whatever they can get their hands on to kill Zombies. The better the weapon, the higher the body count, and the more Zombies appear, attracted by the onslaught! …



Starting with whoever holds the first player token, each player activates his Survivors one after another, in the order of his choice. Each Survivor can execute three Actions at the Blue Danger Level (not counting any free Action his Blue Level Skill may give him). The possible Actions are:

Move

The Survivor moves from one Zone to the next but cannot move through external building walls or closed doors. If there are Zombies in the Zone the Survivor is attempting to leave, he must spend one extra Action per Zombie to leave the Zone. …



For all their ferocity, zombies are dumb as dirt. You pretty much know what they're gonna do. Unless there's a necromancer around, of course. That's when you've gotta be smarter. A determined group, even a small one, can hold the stupid hordes at bay. Just keep careful, keep quiet, and strike without mercy, cause you sure won't get any from them.

Once the players have activated all their Survivors, the Zombies play. Nobody takes their role; they do it themselves, performing the following steps in order: …



Any fool can charge the enemy with an axe. Killing quickly and efficiently though, that's the thing that takes guts and skill. And with zombies, well, not every hit will do the trick. Hack a man's arm off, and he's down for the count. Hack a zombie's arm off, and he can still get you with t'other. You gotta be swift and sure, or you'll wind up as one of them.

When a Survivor executes a Melee, Ranged or Magic Action to attack Zombies, roll as many dice as the Dice number of the weapon (or Combat spell) being used. …



Quest 0: Tutorial: Danse Macabre

Easy / 4+ Survivors / 45 Minutes

War is nothing new for us. Our counts and dukes are always fighting amongst themselves. For the peasantry, it usually just involves a change in taxes and rents, assuming you survive. But this time, the duke and his army went off and were never seen again.

Well, not until the hordes emerged. Pretty sure a lot of the tougher ones came from his troops. Now everything's a brutal mess. Now we're all equals, facing the danse macabre together. There's no time for social snobbery when the hordes are at your door. We stand together, and throw death back in their teeth. …
