Want to get a good co-op Zombie game to play with my wife. We have Dead of Winter and Dead of Winter The Long Night.
Thank you.

If you want run and gun, almost an arcade like feel to zombie killing without a ton of brain burn then look no further than Black Plague. If you want something much deeper that will kick your butt and brain then Dawn of the Zeds is a worthy contender.

Don't get me wrong, Dawn of the Zeds isn't too complex but comparing the two DotZ will feel deeper than Black Plague.

I like both but they satisfy VERY different itches.

Dawn of the Zeds seems to me a much deeper and more interesting game.

Both are good games. Like the fellows said - Dawn Of The Zeds is more complex and deeper. Zombicide is more "beer & pretzels" but with a TON of fan support and mods.

I would recommend Zombicide if your wife isn't really a gamer, but likes to hang out with you while you game. Also, if you have a gaming group that likes to drink/smoke while playing, or are half-watching a game on tv at the same time.

If you guys really get into gaming though, I don't think there's any comparison: DoTZ is a meaty game that will reward you over continued plays, as you begin to understand the game and how the storyline elements that may or may not be in the game this time will change how everything plays out; where Zombicide is a lot of fun the first few times you play it, but gets dull quickly.

My 2c.
