Good review!

The long playtime is one of the things I don't like about the game. There are ways to shorten it. You can finf them in the forum.

At least the people who play Zombies!!! are ready when the final hour has struck and the dead walk the earth!!

Yep. Great components, but the rules as written are iffy.

There are a lot of house rule docs available. A summary of the ones we use:

Get rid of excess die rolls whenever necessary. Movement rolls are gone. Just move your Health +2.

Zombie rolls are gone. Just move 4 Zombies every turn.

Also, this is one I havent' seen others mention - get rid of the annoying one-card-a-turn restriction. It's not a finely balanced game anyway so you're not ruining anything by doing this and half the fun of the game is the evocative cards, so why limit those unnecessarily? Play those cards! Let 'em fly!

Also, tweak your city deck. There are details on some of the guide docs, but mainly get rid of some of the unnamed city tiles and some of the ones with useless associated cards (Toy Store) and then get rid of the useless cards, too.
