Twilight Creations has made a name for itself thanks to the hilarious zombie invasion board game, Zombies!!! With a variety of spinoffs and 14 expansions, you can really explore a world of the undead apocalypse. Grab a baseball bat from the sporting goods store and a chainsaw from the home goods store and make your way to the helipad before it is too late. Brain-munching hilarity ensues.
The company recently announced the upcoming launch of a kid-friendly version called Zombies!!! Jr., which features all new artwork that is as adorable as can be, something you wouldn’t have thought possible with guts-loving undead monsters.
In Zombies!!! Jr., players are the kids and they are trying to fend off the grown-ups, who have all suddenly got a taste for brains. The game replaces some cards with more iconic kid stuff, like a “narf” gun, the playground bully and “Game Box 360” action card, which makes the target player unable to move for a turn.
Zombies!!! Jr. for players eight and up comes with 20 map tiles, 30 cards, 50 zombies, plastic heart tokens and the rest of the items that come with the base game. It will retail for $25 and is expected to ship in August of 2015.
