i'm going to learn with the base rules. i understand they're not that good, but is there a most popular or agreed upon variant as a place to start for expanding the game?

astroglide (#452682), Just play the game as is until you start to see things you do not like. Then make the changes. Many dislike that a game can be very long. There are many ways to correct that. Use less tiles, custom make your decks, use the fast play rules on the twilight web site.

Take a long look at all the cool variants created at the twilightcreations website.

astroglide (#452682),

It depends on what you want. If you want a shorter game with more strategy, try the QuickPlay Rules or the QuickerPlay Rules. If you want to get into tweaking the game, head to the ZombiesBG Yahoo Group and check out the files and database sections for variants. There are tons of them there.

The Quickplay rules are great. They remove a few tiles from the deck, making the helipad come up more quickly. Also, some of the "take that" cards are removed from the deck, and these type of cards are what make the endgame drag on for so long.
