In 2009, my brother and I dedicated a day to watching a zombie movie and playing zombie games. Last year, we did it again. This year was the third year for Zombie Day. The first two years, Zombie Day was the first Saturday in October. This year it was suppose to be this coming Saturday (Oct 29th), but a last second scheduling conflict turned this weekend into a last second Zombie Day.

Here is everything we did in our celebration of the Walking Dead.

Because I had a commitment until the afternoon on Saturday, we decided to split Zombie Day over Saturday and Sunday. We began with Elf Ball.

This one was a bit of a stretch for Zombie Day, but I knew that my brother would really like it. He played Thunder Rock Dwarves, and I played Deadlings. This meant that I had three Zombies on my team, so it counts!

This was a really good game with a lot of back and forth. The game even fit thematically with Zombie Day where my zombie players hoarded up and surrounded one of the dwarves. In the end though, the undead could not stop the Dwarves from scoring.

After Elf Ball, we fired up the Xbox and played a few rounds of Zombies. We played the Shang-ri-la map, It never went well. The worst is when we wandered to a pool of water under a waterfall to hole up. Little did we realize that zombies would come crawling out of the ground. oops!

We played a short game of zombies by only using the tiles and cards from the school. We were very pleased with the nice, logical layout for the school we ended up with.

My brother made it to the center of the helipad to fight the last zombie with only one heart left. He succeeded the last roll with a 4 and won the game.

A standing tradition of Zombie Day is watching a zombie movie.

This year we watched the french movie, Horde. Overall we were really pleased with the movie. It hit all of the right notes for a zombie movie. It had some interesting characters and some good action. While, it did not get to preachy it got across the common zombie movie theme, that the living are the true monsters.

Plus, the old guy was awesome.

We had to play this game over two days because we started to late. My wife joined us for this game. The zombie apocalypse was especially rough on her, as most of her resource spaces were consumed by the horde. She managed to wall off the northern part of Asia and then started rebuilding her population. After being ravaged by the undead, I went for the nuclear option and tried to cleanse Europe with fire. My brother was able to protect the southern portion of Africa with airstrikes and later a cure. He easily won the game.

After lunch, we played the story mode in this game. I played Sheva, my wife played Ada, and my brother played Leon. In the end I killed the bid bad monster to end the game. The points that I had from killing him is what gave me the win.

Even though Zombie Day ended, the fun will get to continue because my brother left this game that he recently beat for me to play.

This one seems to be missing from your collection mate, a very nice little deck builder based in the 50s about escaping from Zombies. I'd highly recommend it! thumbsup
