Off The Shelf Board Game Reviews – Zpocalypse
Zpocalypse is a survival board game set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Two to four players start in a basement/fallout shelter which can lead out to several base locations or even through the tunnels to sewer grates throughout the transformable board. The survivors are trying to make it day to day in a world torn apart from the walking dead.

As in any survival game, one needs food, guns, ammo, and more. Players go out into the wasteland and scavenge for supplies, or perhaps to find a new gun or melee weapon to fend off the next zombie attack. In addition to gathering supplies, each player forms and controls his own squad — and each squad works to fortify the bases. Your walls and barbed wire won’t hold the dead for long, however, and they’re getting hungry.

Characters receive victory points for killing zombies, building defenses, and successfully completing goals. Victory points show who is soldiering on the best in this wasteland. The final tally of points determines the winner. Victory points also act as experience points for leveling up a character.

The game combines combat, tactics, resource collecting, character development, team play, and strategy towards the goal of surviving in the Zpocalypse!

  1. do zombies get to move and attack in the same turn? Say a zombie has 4 moves and reaches the squad within 3, does it still attack?

  2. This game looks really fun. I searched up fallout game board and this popped up and I'm like oh yeah inspiration for a fallout board game of my own. Also how much did this cost you and what would you think about the game adding 3D elements such as walls, cars, etc.?

  3. Good review. I liked what you had to say about the game. I felt like this was the most fair review of the game that I have encountered so far. Thank you for making this.

  4. If I had watched this video earlier ,I would't have bought the game..The randomness and the luck factor in a game is not bad, but in this game I feel I can't have control at all! I don't know how I'm going to enjoy this game anyway. Maybe I'll try some house rules.

  5. thanks for the great video you helped make the rules easier to understand

  6. Thank you for this vid! It's almost impossible to get a hold of this game in the UK but finally got a copy. Was reading the rules and followed fine until the combat stage with all the searching and "x" n "3" tokens. Your guide/review really helped, so cheers mate.

  7. 38:40 u shouldn't of gone into combat if u moved cause that 1 action point and exiting the bunker is 1 and the combat roll is another action point total of 3 and its 2 per player u said…mistake?

  8. you didn't talk enough about the bag….get to the game already

  9. Thanks for watching Eduardo!

  10. @neospace8468 – Depending on what you want to make check out litko.com and artscow.com. to get started.

  11. hey i would like to make a board game and i was wondering where and how do you get the pieces of the board like that.

  12. My friends and I picked this up 2 weeks ago and just LOVE IT!

  13. @Stacie Winters – Which games are you considering among? Also how many players do you normally play with and do you prefer competitive or cooperative games?

  14. If a person only had money for one zombie game, which one would be the one to get?

  15. @mrbrown0 I cant recall which page of the rulebook itis on but in this case zombies go after the squad with the current highest score. They sense the death on you and seek revenge!

  16. What if a zombie sees two squads each within 4 squares of the zombie? Does a zombie go for the one closest to the bunker if thats possible?
