War is hard enough when you are facing your friends but, Avalon Hill is throwing one more wrench in your battle for world domination. That my friend, is zombies. In the upcoming Axis & Allies & Zombies players will have to contend with a horde of undead flesh eating monsters who are just waiting for your troops to become their next lunch. The Axis & Allies 1942 strategy board game is based on World War II and has been a cultural phenomenon among board game junkies for decades. With this new twist, we are also getting zombie-specific R&D weapons like Chainsaw Tanks and Zombie Mind Control!

The game starts off as normal, the Axis power is bent on world domination while the Allies are rallying their troops for the greater good. Before you know it, zombies appear among your dead, doing what zombies do best. Not only are you now in charge of planning a strategy for your living foes, but must ask yourself how to deal with the undead as well. Face your foes and seal victory or forever be salty in undeath.

Axis & Allies & Zombies was designed by a few award winning designers over at Wizards of the Coast including, Mike Mearls, Scott Van Essen, Ryan Miller, and Mons Johnson. The game will include an introductory scenario to get new players up to speed with how the game is setup and played. It will also include quick start rules for those are who already familiar with the game, so they can jump right into the action! The game will also include an expansion for the Axis & Allies 1942 board game as well. Axis & Allies & Zombies is recommended for 2-5 players age 12+ and will be available starting today, just in time for Christmas where ever Avalon Hill games are sold.
