Can playing City of Zombies really improve your maths?
City of Zombies hides super strong maths lessons underneath an easy-to-play game of brain crunching fun.
We struggled when looking for maths games and resources to help our own kids because… well… everything we found was boring!
So many maths games are dull. We’ve seen dozens of blank grids with endless numbers on, confusing rules that make everybody feel stupid at the end, and a competitive nature that leaves struggling or unconfident children behind.
We developed City of Zombies to get around these problems, as we feel maths should be fun, inclusive, exciting, and interactive.
What People Say About City of Zombies
“Possibly the best available way to practise arithmetic at home with your child in an enjoyable fashion. As a former maths teacher, I don’t say that lightly.”
Shuffle & Play
“Refreshingly easy to set up and start playing. There’s enough going on for the kids to want to play it over and over again, and crucially, for the adults to enjoy it too.”

Aim of the game
Aliens & Zombies
Aliens & Zombies are controlled by the game, their mission is to reach the Barricade and ‘steal’ Survivors from the players.
The players objective is to stop Zombies reaching the Barricade. Hold them off until the Rescue Plane lands to win the game.
Bonus Objective: Save Survivors
If players clear the board of Zombies they can save more Survivors.
Survivors score bonus points if the players win, so the more Survivors saved the better your score.
