Zombies are attacking the town! In this cooperative game, team up with your fellow players to drive off the zombie hordes. Collect the four ingredients to brew an antidote and save the world!
This sequel to the award-winning Zombie Kidz Evolution is a completely standalone game, so you don't need to have played Kidz. This series gives younger players a unique legacy game experience, where actions in past rounds change the storyline in meaningful ways. The game has memory! Use stickers to track the story changes, and open special Evolution envelopes to find what's next. We love legacy games, but they tend to be much heavier games (like The King's Dilemma) which aren't very approachable. Zombie Teenz Evolution is fast, easy to learn, and evolves in a really satisfying way.
Note: this is not the same game as Zombie Kidz Evolution. They are by the same company and both were up for Spiel des Jahres awards in 2020/2021, so thank you to the Germans for making that confusing! Zombie Kidz Evolution is an older game (released in 2018), and Zombie Teenz Evolution is newer (released in 2020). Teenz is a little more complicated than Kidz to learn, so it's great for kids who have already played Zombie Kidz Evolution or who are a little older.
- Legacy games are such a great choose-your-own-adventure concept, and Zombie Teenz Evolution brings that to family games!
- We love cooperative games too - so that's two big bonuses for this game.
