Thrills and and chills await in Pittsburgh 68, a frenzied game of zombie horror! One player starts as a zombie and the rest as survivors on the run. As survivors are eliminated, they become part of the growing zombie problem. Those who avoid becoming zombified are the "winners", but only if they survive the final draw!
The game is played in four segments called "reels". Each reel has a designated number of cards to be played through. As these are revealed in a central three-card hand, players have the option to take them on their turn to build their survivor or zombie hands. In addition to cards, the Shuffling Horror system uses two six-sided dice (2d6) to resolve conflict actions, such as when a zombie attacks a survivor. The game includes two sets of dice. The Zombie Master makes many dice rolls and reserves one set as his own, while the players should pass their set as each player completes her turn.
Spoints – short for survivor points – are the final component of the Shuffling Horror system. These counters track the survivors' vitality and luck, and survivors use spoints to cheat the system.
Pittsburgh 68 is a game that revels in zombie mayhem. As such, its outcome varies greatly. Our advice is to just let the zombies run amuck.
Well...not quite run...
