https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1648402/18-card-microgame-c...

In the idea phase!

Game Name: Zombie Shuffle

Designer: Joseph Propati

Artwork: Joseph Propati (coming soon)

Players: 1

Suggested Play Time: 15-30 minutes

Premise: You are stuck in the middle of a shambling zombie mob and you need to make your way out of the mob without attracting too much attention or making contact with too many zombies.

The zombie mob randomly moves around but sometimes you can predict their movement and figure a way out. Other times the mob shifts their movement based on outside factors beyond your control.

Make it out alive and live, make contact with too many zombies and you die!

The game mechanics are as follows:

card flipping and rotation.
Abstract movement
Puzzle solving

It uses dexterity, card flipping and rotation, abstract puzzle solving and area movement.

The setup is you take all the zombie cards and shuffle them into a deck. Take the deck and toss it in the air above the table so all the zombies cards fall on the table in a randomly arranged order. Then you take the red card "YOU" and place it in the middle of the mob of zombies is a space that fits your card with the [1] showing. You rotate all the zombies cards so they show the same color.

You get to start by making the first move if you can. If you can't the zombies make the first move. Flip each zombie card in the direction of it's arrow.

1. If a zombie card flips onto another zombie card both zombie card move in the opposite direction.
2. If a zombie card flips onto YOU, you take a point of damage and you flip your card over to show the [2]. If you take another point of damage you are dead and the game is over.

After all the zombie move you must now move your card. To move you flip your card over in any direction you like: vertical or horizontal.
1. If you land on a zombie card and cover less than half the card you are still ok.
2. If you land of a zombie card and cover more than half of the card you take a point of damage and flip your card over. If your card was showing a 2 before you took a point of damage you are dead and the game is over.

After you make your move its the zombies turn again. Then your turn and the zombies turn and so on until you make it out of the zombie mob or die!

The zombie cards have two shades of color so you know when you flip them over they have made their move for this turn.

There are two special zombies that can more faster then the other zombies "brown and blue". When you move these two zombies they will flip over twice so these two zombies will move last!
