Tedrow's Zombie Cube!

Tedrow's Zombie Cube!

By now, many players have heard of Zombie Cube, the brainchild of noted alterist Eric Klug. If you haven't heard of it, you've been missing out. Stop what you're doing and read all about it. As its creator, Klug does a much better job of explaining its rules and premise than I ever could.

Not long after discovering Zombie Cube, I set out to build my own version from all the bulk I have on hand. How could I not? It's flavorful, appeals to my inner horrorpunk, and has an awesome backstory. Due to budgetary/availability issues, mine is a bit different than Klug's, but the overall vibe is, I hope, the same. Now that my version of the cube has a couple drafts under its belt, I figured I would share my list, which overlaps significantly with the original version.

Not long after creating it, Klug wrote that he made important changes to his original list; rather than reflexively incorporate his updates, I'm going to see how the games play out before cutting or adding cards. I will update this thread with changes/additions as my iteration of the cube evolves.
