Zombie World


Zombie World is a card-based tabletop roleplaying game about ordinary people caught up in the zombie apocalypse. You are struggling to survive day after day, month after month, year after year, in a world destroyed by the restless dead.

The game is designed for easy, quick, and intense play. If you're a fan of zombie classics like The Walking Dead, Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, 28 Days Later, or World War Z, then Zombie World is the perfect game to satisfy your hunger!

Zombie World has its roots in the Powered by the Apocalypse system used by tabletop RPGs like Apocalypse World, Monsterhearts, and Masks: A New Generation.

  • Special cards generate characters, create situations, and resolve conflicts
  • Create your character by drawing three cards: a past, a present, and a (hidden) trauma
  • You get a unique history, role in the community, and emotional reaction to the zombie apocalypse instantly
  • Take actions by drawing cards that will tell you what happens to your survivor
