Dead Run consists of one game board, 20 inches x 24 inches, one hundred Zombie tokens, six Player tokens, six action cards, two 100 cards decks (Survival and Threat cards), 4 tracking tokens, 18 Trap tokens, 9 Wall tokens, one Escape token, and one hard mode marker.
(An early concept of the game board)
The players start off in the designated central area. As the game progresses, more and more zombies start flooding the field. Your objectives are to gather supplies, and escape without losing too many allies. You will obtain weapons and tools to aid your escape, but you will need to be wary of how much sound you make, or you could end up getting not only yourself infected, but also your friends!
