I bought the board game Zombicide a few weeks ago, and it is totally fantastic.

The game is a co-operative survival game. You have various tiles that build the environment (so you can play set scenarios, or you can make up your own layout if you want). Each turn, you move your characters to try and collect your goals (maybe you need food and water, or in some cases you just need to work your way to a single point to escape). After you move however, all zombies get their chance to move and spawn more zombies. It’s just wave after wave of zombies, and it’s stressful and fun!

If anyone is looking for a new board game (1-6 players), then I definitely suggest this one.

My questions for you: Favourite board game of all time? Favourite recent board games? What’s the most harrowing game with friends that you’ve played (was it Risk or Monopoly that almost ended a friendship)?

If you don’t want to talk about about this, or sift through your playlist, then feel free to talk amongst yourselves!
