There doesn't seem to be many tiles in this game when compared to Zombies!!. Does this not make the game really short?

It does indeed, hence the 5 minutes playing time. Something that won't ever, ever happen in a game of Zombies!!!

Play it, you'll see. The short playing time is part of the fun!

You'll play it. And then play it again. And again. And again. And yet again. I remember wasting the better part of a work day once on what was supposed to be a lunchtime distraction...

You could create and play with more tiles but you will invariably lose 99.9% of the time ... The more tiles played, the less likely the chance you will win.


Rewording your question's premise, it would be ... There are a lot of balls in Marbles, but very few in Jacks. Both games are played completely differently with different uses for the balls. Adding more balls to Jacks would not be a good thing.

Its not the number of tiles in a game, its how you use them.

Zombie in my Pocket makes good use of the tiles. And due to the nature of play you can have a session end long before you explored every tile.

There are too many tiles in ZimP. And too many zombies. And time is too short. And life as well. Unless you want to call life being a zombie.
