The dead are rising from the graveyard which is conveniently located in the middle of your residential neighborhood. There is no way out of the neighborhood, so you must scrounge as much stuff (weapons, barricades, survivors, etc.) from your neighbors to survive until help arrives. The game lasts for 10 days, and by the 10th day the neighborhood is filled with zombies to say the least and your neighbors are no longer your friends.
Zombietown 2 adds cars and hidden agendas to the mix of the ZombieTown universe.
Cars and keys are distributed one per household at random. Players must find a matching key to use the car. Once the cars are in play they can be used to move quicker, run down zombies, or serve as makeshift barricades.
Hidden agendas are cards similar in size to the existing cards for the game. Each agenda has two possible conditions worth additional victory points. Players must choose one of them and reveal it when the conditions are met. If the conditions are later lost, the player retains his VP. The agendas on a card are related, so one might offer 5 points for having homes on two sides of the board and 10 for having homes on three sides.
