PnP only. In reality plays in about 15-20. Very cool exploration and deduction feeling.

An easy to build, print-and-play, "escape the town which is full of zombies" game.

Playing time 15 minutes.

(I've played this game a lot, and it can end much soon than that! zombie But, I'd say the playing time is between 10 and 30 minutes, depending on how fast you play, too.)
