In this game for up to twelve, players are split into two teams: one zombie team and one human team. Zombies take more effort to kill, while humans each have a unique special ability. Any human that is eliminated becomes a zombie, and play continues until only one side remains. Either the surviving humans are the winners, or the surviving zombies (except the very last zombie created). Zombie/human battle is resolved with Rock-Paper-Scissors-plus Powers and is lightning fast, with games ending in around ten minutes.

The game contains 21 large, double-sided character cards and a rulesheet. The game is for 2 - 12 players and MSRP is $14.95. Release date was not announced.

The recent Kickstarter to fund this game raised $55,588 from 3,811 backs ($14.59/backer average).
