I know what the card Rotten Bodies does, I was just wondering thematically what it does storywise?

I'd also like to know about the card At Last, theme wise.

Both "Rotten Bodies" and "At Last" is classic Horror movie reference. In roughly 2/3s of the movie they usally let the most discusting zombies fall apart a bit to give the crowd some gore scenes to mark that the story gets even worse.

"At last" is at the end of a horror movie. There is always something in the way of the heroes, like a locked door, a lost car-key, storm that stops them from escaping and so on. At the end of the movie when it seems most hopeless for the heroes, they are finally getting a lucky break and this early problem for them, turns into their final escape.

My problem with Rotten Bodies is that it is a play immediately card that doesn't give the option to not play it. I have gotten this card as the zombie player right in the beginning of the game with only several zombies on the board and the zombies were not in position to fight any heroes yet. That card really hurt cry
