Welcome to the Eaten By Zombies!: In Cahoots Contest. In Cahoots has JUST begun its Kickstarter campaign and we would love for you to take a moment to get to know In Cahoots. You just might win a signed copy of the game, a signed copy of the 4-player Eaten By Zombies Game, some great custom made artwork, or maybe one of our just-released Hardwood Crokinole boards!

Eaten By Zombies: In Cahoots! Is unique in that it is a 2-player deck builder game which is based on the Eaten By Zombies world created by Max Holliday in his 2011 smash hit. In Cahoots features two all new starting players, as well as all new swag cards, and five special zombie cards from fan-submitted pictures. The game comes in a handsome "ammo pouch" inspired box which is a nice follow up to the 4-player Eaten By Zombies game's Ammo Can stylized box.

This 2-player game is still set in the 1950s in Main Street USA and can be played stand alone as a 2-player game where players will likely need to cooperate much more to survive, especially if the "In Cahoots" Swag Card comes into play. This game can also be used as a 5-6 player expansion of the original game, with room in the original box for the expansion thanks to great planning on Max's part.

While In Cahoots is a deck-building game, the object is not to rack up victory points or just to improve the value/size of your hand. Instead, the goal is just to stay alive for one more turn. Players start with 12 cards (5 heavy stick, 5 hide and 2 Sandwiches), shuffling them to keep 6 of them in their hand. The players then face a zombie horde, starting with just one zombie at the beginning of the game. Players must choose to fight or flee, with a successful attempt meaning the player can "scavenge" for more swag. The value of the "scavenge" (think "buy" in Dominion) is the strength of the fight/flee value, plus some modifiers on certain cards. Cards scavenged go directly into the player's hand in preparation for the next onslaught and zombies that are successfully fought end up in the player's discard pile, along with the played cards for each turn.

As players shuffle and draw from their new draw piles the killed zombies appear in a player's hand. These zombies can only be gotten rid of by playing them on other players. When the zombie deck has been gone through the first time then instead of one zombie per turn, each player must face two zombies per turn, and so on. The result is tougher and tougher fights and more and more zombies. As players lose a fight/flee exchange with the horde they must discard cards, weakening their future resistance to the zombies. Players who lose an encounter and have no cards left to draw succumb to the zombies and lose the game in the 2-player game. With enough cooperation both players can win the game together by having no zombies left in the zombie deck, a tall order in this tough battle for your own humanity. For greater options play with 3 or more players with the Eaten By Zombies base game, in that case as a player dies they actually become a zombie and continue playing the game with all new actions.

Warlord beats Troll, Troll beats Elf, Elf beats Water Sprite, and basically everything else beats Enchanted Bunny.

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.

That BGG is running a contest sponsored by Mayday Games reflects poorly on the administration and its policies.

As much as I like the game, I hope somebody along the production line proofreads the cards/rules this time!
