Zombie Dice, Take 2
I was informed by a fellow father geek that I stated Zombie Dice was my least favorite game of 2010 (according to the Dice Tower podcast, episode 195). This is a true statement.
My experiences with Zombie Dice in 2010 were not good. The game was (in hindsight) poorly explained to me and I never thought to go read the rules for myself. When I saw Zombie Dice at a local game store, I tried to play it with my two oldest boys but it fell flat (again, because I didn’t understand the rules).
Fast forward to January 25th, 2011. I find myself trying the free Zombie Dice app mentioned in the Dice Tower podcast, episode 196. I downloaded it, played it, and loved it. What I was playing was a much better game. I read the rules and immedtly changed my mind about the game in general. Will Zombie Dice do a complete 180 and become the the best dice game in 2011? I highly doubt it.
In short, I am willing to give Zombie Dice another toss. (oh! see what I did there?)

He now plays board games with anyone and everyone he can, but enjoys playing with his children the most. Video games continue to be of real interest, but not as much as dice and little miniatures.
