Are you among the Survivors? Or are you one of the ravenous Zombies? The choice is yours in Tiny Epic Zombies!

Tiny Epic Zombies is a 30 minute, 1-5 player, game of survival that features 5 distinct play modes:

  • 1. Cooperative team-play with game controlled Zombies.
  • 2. Cooperative team-play with Zombies controlled by a non-team player.
  • 3. Competitive free-for-all with game controlled Zombies.
  • 4. Competitive free-for-all with Zombies controlled by a player.
  • 5. Solo.

In Tiny Epic Zombies, survivors are always on the run, collecting weapons, killing Zombies and working toward completing objectives. Completing 3 objectives can win you the game but if you're too focused on the objectives, the Zombies will overrun the mall and that will be the end of you.

GENERAL INFO: 1-5 players, 30 minutes, 5 play modes including competitive and cooperative play.

THEME: Modern day Zombie outbreak at the Echo Ridge Mall.

HOOK: Fast paced, portable, and tons of replayability. Play as the survivors or the Zombies. Plus ITEMeeples!

WIN: Survivors must complete 3 objectives - Zombies must kill all the Survivors or gain control of the Mall's Courtyard.

OVERVIEW: Simplicity shines in Tiny Epic Zombies

Based on the mode of play, you will either play as one of the Survivors or as the Zombies.

Example Survivor:

Note: If your ammo and wound tokens ever meet, you're dead meat! So, keep your wounds low and your ammo high.

If you die, that character will turn into a Zombie and you'll have to draw a new character to play. If that happens too many times, you lose the game.

As a Survivor, your turn will consist of moving 3 times. Then based on where you move, you'll be able to do additional things. For instance, if you move into a room with a Zombie, you'll have to fight it by rolling the Zombie die. Or if you move into a room adjacent to a Zombie, you can spend ammo to shoot it. Killing a Zombie is actually pretty easy... but they just keep coming. Keeping them from overrunning the entire mall, while trying to accomplish your objectives, that is hard!

After you've taken your 3 moves, you'll search the room. This is done by revealing the Search Card you are holding. Most of the time, you find something useful, like awesome items you can later pickup and equip to your ITEMeeples. Sometimes though, you may find a Zombie lurking in the corner. So be prepared.

After you search the room, more Zombies flood into the Mall. Then it's the next player's turn. Simple as that.

Example Objective:

This is one of many Scenarios in the game. Each Scenario presents an objective. You'll have 3 Scenario in each game. Complete all 3 and you win!

Example Zombie:

As a Zombie player, not only will you control unique Zombies with special abilities, you will control ALL the Zombies! With your help, the Zombies will have a brain in addition to eating brains. Your game will be to overwhelm the players with clever placement and movement of the Zombies. Smother them with your Zombie horde and prevent them from completing their objectives. If you kill enough players or overrun the mall courtyard, you win.

Everyone loves stretch goals, us included! However, due to the constraints of box size (this is a Tiny Epic after all) and due to a total weight limitation, in order to keep shipping costs affordable for everyone, we are limited on how many stretch goals we can offer. If the project does very well, they will run out.  

Please share this project with as many people as possible to help us achieve these goals!
