Yes, the America of Hit Z Road is one of post-apocalyptic nightmare. But it’s also one with a shiny Californian coastline yawning into an ocean that sparkles brightly in the sun at the end of your journey… if you can survive.
Part survival game, part horror story, Hit Z Road boasts tension and irony in equal measure as you hunt for gas and scavenge for ammo in order to blast through zombies and barrel down the highway to L.A. In the end, though, you don’t necessarily have to be faster than the zombies; you just have to be faster than your friends.
As you travel though a deck of adventure cards rife with dangers, you battle zombie hordes, drive abandoned school buses, scavenge for gas and bullets, and explore a darkened, tainted American countryside full of shambling undead, haunted carnivals, and plumes of toxic gas. Your goal is to stay alive until you reach the safe, sandy beaches of the California coast.
Three different stages of adventure cards create an experience of increasing difficulty and ensure that each playthrough is unique. Each round begins with an auction that determines both player order and which cards you will encounter. Since the resources used for bidding are the same as those used to battle the oncoming zombie hordes, your survival depends as much on your resource management as it does upon winning those bidding wars. The player who either accumulates the most points or survives the longest wins.
Zombies of all types await, with cannibals, anti-personnel mines and radioactive wastes also being among the hazards awaiting the players. Who will survive the zombie onslaught?
