It didn't take long to discover that Zombie Dice makes for an outstanding drinking game. With any drinking game, the rules have to be simple so all the drunkards can remember them. After experimenting a bit, here's what we came up with:
BASE RULES: * All the standard rules for Zombie Dice are in effect exactly as written in the rulebook. The only real difference is how the drinks (sips of beer) are distributed.
TURN OUTCOME: * If you pass and successfully collect brains on a round, you may distribute that many drinks (sips) to opponents. You may give them all to one person ("You take 4 drinks") or distribute them ("You take 2 drinks, you take one, and you take one"). * If you get shotgunned, you drink the amount of brains you built up (and lost) in that one round. * If you get triple-shotgunned by rolling 3 blast icons in a single roll, you still drink the amount of brains you built up (and lost) in that one round ... PLUS the total amount of "banked" brains you've collected so far in the game. Ouch.
GAME END: * When someone wins the game, all of the other players take a number of drinks equal to the points they fell short from the winner.
PARTY GAME VARIANT If there are a large number of players playing, or the party is very chaotic, or folks are exceptionally drunk, then just pass the dice from person to person without keeping score. Each person takes a roll and either distributes drinks for his success, or takes drinks for getting shotgunned. There is no scorekeeping, no triple-shotgun penalty, or endgame scoring. Just pass and play and laugh until you've had your fill.
