Zombicide: Black Plague is a standalone cooperative boardgame for 1 to 6 players that brings the relentless zombie-killing action of Zombicide into a brand new fantasy setting! Players control a party of survivors as they fight to rid the land of an invasion of zombies controlled by the game itself. Survivors find weapons & spells, battle zombies, and gain experience. The more powerful Survivors become, but the more zombies rise to face them!
While it retains the general Zombicide mechanics, several changes and additions were made for Black Plague.
Black Plague brings a whole new breed of survivors to Zombicide, hailing from all walks of life, and even including some fantasy races like dwarves and elves! Each of these heroes posses their own unique abilities to face the shambling horde.
Weapons and magic spells are equipped in-hand. Armor is worn on the body. Special items like extra arrows may be stashed in the Survivor's backpack. Survivors have varying equipment specialisations, allowing them to equip a particular card on the body slot, and still have it instantly accessible.
Survivors wearing armour, or carrying a shield, have a chance of blocking multiple zombie attacks with a lucky roll.
The zombie hordes shuffling around Zombicide: Black Plague’s alleys were raised by powerful Necromancers. When they enter the board, even more zombies spawn every round. Instead of mindlessly chasing survivors, Necromancers will try to escape and spread the shambling horde. If not eliminated, the number of zombies only gets worse!
