Nightmare Forest: Dead Run is a racing game for one to five players in which the aim is to leave a zombie infested forest without getting killed, which is to say eaten by zombie bunnies and racoons.
The premise of the game is pretty simple and the rules are just as simple too. You have a row of upside down cards for each player and the cards can be zombie animals, allies or gear. If they are a zombie, you have to fight it. If they are gear, you can use it. If they are allies they will help you.
Then you can fight the zombies with the pool of dice you have available for each of the four stages of the race. If you win the fight, you can use the remaining dice to search for gear, which could be handy.
Player interaction comes when you throw some gear at your friends in order to make noise and attract zombies their way, who will hopefully get rid of the competition.
I only got a pre-production copy, so can’t really comment on the finished game itself, but if things continue as they are, this will be a very nice looking game indeed!
Here’s my full review in the podcast.
