Fight Zombies | Save Survivors | improve your maths!
Aliens are invading and turning everyone in the City into Zombies! You’ll need to use your BRAINS to survive and keep the Zombies off the barricade until the Rescue Plane lands!
Aim of the game
Defend the Barricade from the advancing Zombies, working as a team to survive.
Everyone wins if they can protect the Barricade until the Rescue Plane lands.
Everyone loses if 6 Zombies reach the Barricade.
This is the best maths game I’ve ever seen
Great for developing mental maths skills.
My child’s ability to do times tables and division has improved massively and only after playing half a dozen times.

A brilliant game! Our 7 year old was so excited by the zombies he didn’t notice we were actually doing maths.
Working as a team means his attention was kept even if he was slower to see the trickier dice options at times. The different levels mean there’s huge scope for it to grow with his confidence too. We adults enjoyed it just as much!

Learn to play, play to learn
City of Zombies is played over a number of rounds.
Each round is made up of the following steps:
1. Zombies Spawn
2. Players Fight Zombies
3. Remaining Zombies advance
4. Move Rescue Plane
The game ends either when the Plane lands and everyone wins, or 6 Zombies reach the Barricade and everyone loses.
How to Fight Zombies
Each player takes it in turn to fight Zombies by rolling the three battle dice.
You can defeat a Zombie using 1, 2 or all 3 dice.
Dice can be combined in the following ways:
Players can add two or even all three dice together.
Players can subtract dice from each other.
Multiply or Divide
Dice can be multiplied or divided together.
Build combos with 2 or 3 dice using difference maths operations.

Take it to the next level
Dice can be Powered up and down, a useful skill to master. Powering up dice allows you to target and remove more Zombies on your turn.
4 x 4 = 16
(2 + 3 = 5) 5 x 5 = 25
6 x 6 = 36
√4 = 2
So you can see a roll of 4 is really useful…
It can be used as a 4, powered up to 16, or powered down to a 2!
