How do you handle damage in zombicide? If you swing a 2dmg meat cleaver into a horde do you kill 1 or 2 zombies?

Brother and I have been playing it for a while now having misread the rule and as such have been playing it as 2-3 damage against regular zombies and runners as being 3 kills.

We are debating whether or not to follow the rule properly now but as we've looked at it we are worried that the horde in late game (red/ultra-red) will become unmanageable due to zombies spawning in greater numbers than we can cut down even with high power weapons as the board naturally fills up at higher threat levels.

So how do you guys do your damage. By the book or a house rule of some kind?

We've always done it by the book. Later in the game not only do the better weapons help, but also the character's extra actions.

it's how many dice you roll that are the number of zombies you can hit. playing it that way is the best. Playing it how you were kind of breaks the full combat system and why/how it's implemented...

check out our lil summary with a few house rules. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BzUqoUE_JiOuLVJBWHVlMjIxMn...

The car rules might read a lil bit strange but it's wrote for us as a quick reminder. Makes perfect sense when shown.

Ok, we will adjust then. Its usually fine until ultra red and then we just mow the horde down every round.

Play by the rules with the understanding that the goal is to finish the mission as quickly as possible with as low a survivor level as you can.
