Feeling particularly inspired by the posse from the Wild Die Podcast and their recent episode on Zombie-themed games, I decided to put together an on-the-go zombie game to take camping this weekend so I could introduce a few new people to Savage Worlds.

Wild Die Podcast Episode 27

To begin with, I chose the following products with which to build my game:

Apocalypse Campaign Guide for Savage Worlds (Daring Entertainment)

Campaign Guide

Savage Tales 6 Zombie Run (Pinnacle Entertainment Group)

Classic Zombie Run

I must mention a couple of other good sources for your zombie game:

The Quiet Year (Avery Alder)

Quiet Year

Wrath of Zombie (Mike Evans)

Wrath of Zombie

I also stopped by my two favorite gaming stores to find some materials. My first stop was by Gamer’s Haven where I found a board game to totally savage.

Zpocalypse 2: Defend the Burbs (Greenbrier Games)

Zpocalypse 2

It has some great tiles, wild dice, and minis to use on the fly. I threw in my zombie-themed deck of cards and dice. The dice bag and tiny Bennies came from Hobby Town.

I also liked that Zpocalypse included Wild Card zombies to use as well. I created their stats and can share those later.

And, I threw in some extra miniatures just in case I want to add more baddies to the mix.

The last thing I wanted to do was make everything compact. I went to Staples and found a nice binder with pockets.

It also has a nice front pocket just right for my Savage Worlds Deluxe Explorer’s Edition and The Horror Companion.

I also threw in the graphic novel Zombies: A Brief History of Decay (Insight Comics) because I like for players to have some visuals for inspiration.

The final on-the-go game is very light and easy to pack for camping!
