According to this website the best player count is 3.

Forgive me since I'm really new at this game, but after all the players go then more zombie cards are drawn.
There doesn't seem to be less zombies if there are less players, so in order to survive shouldn't the best player count be 6?
Less than the max player count and you are just making the game harder.

Am I missing something?

Player count (the number of players actually playing) and the number of survivors in the game aren't necessarily the same thing. With three players playing two survivors each, you would have six survivors total and still get to keep playing if one of them dies. If you have six players playing one survivor each, and one of them dies early on, that player doesn't get to do anything but watch everyone else have fun for the next couple of hours.

2 or 3 players works really good just because you always play with 6 survivers so it would be an even number survivers for each player.
For the rest the game and rules just stays the same with any number of players

Oh of course!
I never thought to have a player control more than one survivor.
Thank you.

1 player works just a well also. But there is usually less talking during the game.

There's a Geek Badge for the more talkative solo players: mb
