BRAINS! (A Zombie spin-off topic)

I just thought of something when looking at the Zombie topic: What if there were a game based on BEING a zombie? The whole purpose of the game would be to amass a horde of similar zombies and take over a town. Of course to make the game effective the other players would have to have zombie pieces of different colors.

So who's up for a little brainstorming?

1) Players are all zombies
2) Players don't simply kill their enemies, they change them.
3) Most zombies win once the town is changed? How to win?

Every zombie has a strength (or zombiness-indicator...)

The zombiness-indicator modifies your ability to convert a zombie from another player into one of your own.

The converted zombie looses a bit of zombieness, will the converting zombie gains zombieness.


The red player has a zombie with 4 red tokens on it and decides to use it to attack the yellow player's zombie with 2 yellow tokens on it.

The red zombie converts the yellow zombie (by rolling dice or playing cards or whatever...)

==> The red player now has a zombie with 5 red tokens on it and a zombie with one red token on it. The yellow player has lost his zombie.


More ideas:

- The higher the zombiness-indicator, the easier to convert.
- The higher the zombiness-indicator, the slower the zombie.
- Neutral people on the board to turn into zombies to strengthen your army.
- Several zombies may attack together, making it possible (or more likely) for a few JUST-TURNED-ZOMBIE-zombies to convert a VERY-ZOMBIE-zombie.


As Jebbou pointed out in this post in abother thread:

There is an ongoing discussion about zombies right now (Click here). I think the zombie theme is a very good setup for dissention or cooperation. Players could either fight together to achieve a common goal (such as repelling the zombies or finding the cure to the zombie disease), or try achieving a personal goal, such as reach the hellipad.

This could work with the idea to work together with low-zombiness-zombies of different players converting a strong one from an opponent. One player gets a stronger zombie because the conversion worked, but the other player gets the converted zombie...

Or something like that...

That and whatever...

"Brainstorming" would be an awesome name for a zombie game.
That's my contribution!
