Good Dog, Bad Zombie Board Game
View Slideshow

If “Homeward Bound meets The Walking Dead” sounds appealing to you, then Good Dog, Bad Zombie is probably right up your (likely dark and zombie-infested) alley. This is how board-game developers Make Big Things describe their new tabletop game, which is currently seeking funding for production through a Kickstarter campaign. In GDBZ (which is fun to say fast), players work cooperatively (read: everyone wins, or everyone loses) to save a post-apocalyptic city from a zombie attack. In the story-based game, game players are members of a heroic dog pack rescuing humans from a zombie apocalypse; using their special powers (such as snuggling, protecting, or being grumpy), the pup pack searches the city for human survivors and herds them to safety in Central Bark — all while occasionally pausing to, you know, lick themselves. Extra coolness factor: GDBZ is ethically produced by a worker-owned cooperative using environmentally friendly and sustainable production methods, AND the Kickstarter campaign will also help benefit One Tail at a Time, a no-kill rescue and adoption center. Sniff out more about Good Dog, Bad Zombie over at Kickstarter.
