The object of zombie dice is to be the first player to reach a score of 13 points, or as they're called in this game, brains. You do this by rolling different colored dice, which have a distribution of three faces on them; brains, runners, and shotguns. Green dice have 3 brains, 2 runners and one shotgun. There are 6 green dice, 4 yellow dice, and 3 red dice in the game, for a total of 13. During the game, you can press D at any time to hear this information.
Each turn, you will be presented with a menu with two options: Roll Dice and End Turn. You must roll at least once. For your first roll, you will select 3 dice at randomm from the cup, which contains the 13 dice as described above. You will hear the colors of the dice you selected, and will then roll them. What you decide to do next will depend on the faces on the dice, as follows:
You can now decide whether to roll again or end your turn. As described above, if you do roll again, you will reroll any runners that you have. For example, if you have 2 runners, you will select only one new die from the cup, for a total of three.
If you decide to end your turn, play moves to the next player.
If you reach 13 banked brains, all players will be given a chance to beat your score. If no one does, you have won the game. If, however, a player does beat your score, the process repeats; all players will be given a chance to beat that player's score.
There are several keyboard commands that can be used to get information about your current game:
You can chat with other players at any point during game play by pressing the F2 key, typing your message into the input box and pressing enter. You can also chat at the main menu to other players who are not currently in a game, also by pressing F2.
To change the volume of the background music during the game, use F3 to lower the volume and F4 to raise the volume. You can also adjust the volume of the sound effects with F5 and F6 to lower or raise the volume, respectively.
You can opt to receive a transcript of your game, that is, an email containing the entire text of your game. When you leave a game, you will be asked if you would like to receive a transcript. If you would, choose Yes, and the transcript will be sent to the email address you used when creating your RS Games account. You can also press F11 during the game, rather than wait until you leave the game to decide.
