Carnival Zombie on Kickstarter

It’s been out of print and hard to find for years, but game design studio, Albe Pavo, has launched the 2nd edition of Carnival Zombie on Kickstarter.

Carnival Zombie is a cooperative board game for 1 to 6 players. Each player takes the roll of a character as they work together to flee a sinking city overrun by zombies. Players control this party of heroes as they fight their way to one of the possible escape routes out of the city. During the night, players face restless hordes of zombies, while during the day they recover, move or search for useful items and other survivors. The party can only survive until dawn with close cooperation. If they’re attacked, they accumulate stress until becoming terrified! If just one character becomes too stressed… it’s game over (man)!

The second edition includes new scenarios that will allow you to face completely new challenges: a tutorial scenario, shorter scenarios, harder games, traitor mechanics, competitive game, more dexterity game and night-only scenarios!

Carnival Zombie was originally released by ALBE PAVO in 2013 and sold out in just 3 months. The 1st edition received acclaim from reviewers and players alike. In fact it received the Dice Tower Seal of Excellence and a super cool quote by Tom Vasel:

“One of the best cooperative games I’ve ever played, probably the best zombie game I’ve ever played.”

Carnival Zombie is for 1-6 players ages 12+. Depending on the type of game played – scenarios or story mode – the estimated time to play is 90-240 minutes. The game is scheduled to arrive in backers’ hands in November 2019.
