Not a very controversial suggestion, but who knows?

Always play with 6 characters, especially with 4 players.

Control of the "extras" would rotate with the start player token.

Perhaps the extra characters could be activated by the first player, last player, or both (one each,) in any combination with their primary actors.

Should a primary character get killed, that player takes control of one of the extras.

Don't apply this variant to maps that specify fewer than 6 characters.

What thinks?

Sounds like a good idea, I usually play 2 player (so 3 survivors each) controlling multiple survivors is fun as you have some different abilities to play with and aren't out of the game if one of your characters die.

It's either that or tweak the spawn sites and/or spawn deck when playing with fewer survivors.

I know the spawn deck cards are numbered... does anyone have a tweaked configuration for less than 6 players?

See: http://guillotinegames.com/en/blog-zombie-cards-secrets

Doesn't give a specific "less than 6 players build", but does give you the information you need to begin to tweak the deck to your requirements.

Just use the "Spawn points = 1 + players / 2" rule.

So 1-2 players have 2 spawn points.
3-4 players have 3 spawn points.
5-6 have 4 spawn points.
7-8 have 5...


We tried all of these combinations, and it balances out nicely.
