We also asked ourselves in the last game, if the number of zombies in the supply is strictly limited? With "only" 40 of them, this should be less, than the theoretical maximum on the board.

Good question, but where does it say "only"?

The "only" was not marked as a quote, but as a rhetorical insert (because 40 are in reality not few, only less than the theoretical max).

Sorry, I assumed it was a quote.

It does seem strange that there are not 45 zombies. I'm going to have a look at the Invasion Cards and see if it's possible...

Maybe even 48 (6x8). Keep in mind, that there are several action cards, to summon further zombies.

Oops yes 48.

Okay. In one game the maximum number of zombies that can appear with Invasion cards alone is 51, +6 and the Blonde.

I daren't attempt statistical analysis of the possibility of occurrence but it does make the 40-not-48 choice an unusual one.

This is sort of related to this question. When zombies are killed, are they removed from the game or go back to the zombie spawn area?
