Dead Panic is given a half-page review in the Play Dead feature in which Mike Beardsall talks about the mechanics of the game, comments that “strategy and communication are key…”, calls it “fast-paced and fun” and ultimately gives it 3.5 out of 5 skull & crossbones.
He found the rules a bit complicated at first, but later states, “While the rules may take several play-throughs to master, the sense of panic you feel when an army of zombie tokens closes in around you certainly makes the learning curve worthwhile.”
That cinematic feel is exactly what Justin was aiming for when he designed Dead Panic, so we call that a mark in the Win category!
