Anyone know what the odds are for dying at the exposure die?

Is it 1 out of 12? Still very harsh if you roll that bite...cry

1 side bite
2 sides frostbite
3 sides wound

You could always spend a fuel to avoid rolling, unless you are the traitor goo.

Ding ding ding! You win!

Although, we weighted the die to roll Bitten more often...

Just kidding!

I wish the bitten survivor would at least stick around until the end of the round. We are all familiar with those stories where a survivor is bitten and knows he is doomed, but still goes on to do some good with the time he has left.

Possible variation:
The survivor gets a "bite wound" (as per normal, he is dead if it was the third wound). The bite wound can't be remove by any means.
At the end of the round, survivors with a bite wound die.
Any time a survivor with a bite wound dies, you must either kill a survivor at the location, or that survivor rolls the exposure die and gets a "bite" if ANY wound is rolled.

This also means that the spreading of the bite happens more slowly instead of everything just dying all at once...

I have watched plenty of zombie movies and must say that a 1 in 12 chance of dying some random, pointless death is pretty on point for the genre, if not low.

The die represents those moments when some dude says, "I think we lost them" and then you see a silhouette in the window behind him just before grasping undead arms burst through and pull him, or parts of him, through the window out into the streets.

So for math nerds there is 1/2 of the faces are something bad. Or 50%

5 in 12 or 41.6% of a wound in one form or another.

1 in 6 or 16.6% of a wound with Frostbite

1 in 12 or 8.3% chance of instant death and spreading the bite.

During the bites you have a 50/50 chance of killing the next survivor at your location.

You're forgetting the option to use a fuel card when travelling. So you either use it or not -> 1/2 (50%) x 1/12 (8.3%) = 1 in 24 chance when travelling. For attacking, I guess you have to use a gun

No no no.

That's not how probability works. Your choice to use a fuel card is NOT random like the roll of the die, so you cannot figure that into the chances. But it IS an important choice to make.

It is a 1 in 24 chance however of getting bit if you are the only survivor at a location and someone moves to your location without a fuel...

(1/12 they get bit* 1/2 you also get bit)

Unless you're the traitor and killing your guy would drop morale to zero and cause you to win. Then it's still 1 in 12.
