I'm late to the party, and I'm currently downloading the behemoth of a zip.

My question is ... how does this hold up with more recent Z games, such as Zombicide, Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game, etc? They're all skirmish, scenario/objective-based games.

Depends on what you want. For my liking it is the king of zombie games, in that it feels most like you are living out the events of a movie. Zombicide for me suffered from having special powered zombies, thus feeling more like a computer game than a movie.

LNOE you are jsut moving aobut from one location to another placing zombies on other players.

Dead of Night has a serious flaw though, and its that of the zombie movie, by the end of the movie zombies are everywhere, fine in watching a movie, in a boardgame you have to move every zombie one space forward after each turn, this becomes a bit of a drudge. But other than that, and the rulebook not being great for rule clarification, hope you have a great time with it.

I pretty much completely agree with Cliff. This game always felt the most like Romero's original movie for me compared to other zombie games.

I like Zombicide, but as Cliff said it is much more a computer game in board game format. LNoE is good as well for different reasons. I picked up Dead Panic awhile back thinking that might be a good Night of Living Dead type game and was very disappointed in it.

So this remains the definitive "there coming to get you Barbara" zombie game for me.zombie
