Nathanael Phillip Cole — Cover Art by: Kathren Moss — Interior Art by: Leonardo Freites and Veronica Gandini. Anyway, no, one can ever review, read, or play enough zombie games.
Even more so when the game comes from a Portlander.
As the title spoils, the game revolves around the undead and all the havoc they cause the living. However, Nathanael takes the typical darkness and dread found in cannival undead-themed RPGs and gives it an absurdest spin. This is survival horror with a side of humor. Yeah, that about sums up the chaotic glee that comes from playing a game of Cannibal Contagion. Cannibal Contagion follows the cannihal, and approved, trend of smaller game publishers producing journal-sized books as complete games.
Everything you need, save some pencils and a deck of cards, are in that page book or pdf. The type of game you want to play is truly up to you and the other players. Do you want a simple one-shot night of zombie fragging, getting knee-deep in the gore? The game can do that. Just as easily as the game allows for some serious role-playing and character interaction. The level of emotional commitment is up to you. The system itself is rather simple and elegant. Remember those deck of cards I mentioned?
A Role Playing Game without any dice? Not even the beloved D6? When you think about it, the only real point to the various polyhedral dice is the random element. I mean, if a game can use a game of Jenga as contagikn random element, a deck of playing cards feels positively sane.
Character creation is fast and simple, with the option of custom cpntagion random. Again, it is completely up to the players how they want everything to go down. Characters stats are simple: Kill cobtagion the active skill you use to win Showdowns, actions, and general badassery.
Savvy — the active skill to win mentally rpb Showdowns and other Big Brains events. From there, you get rlg items that fit contahion character archetype, but not to exceed your Savvy points. Next, you determine triggering events that could cause madness, get some Survival Tokens to help you out of extra-nasty situations, and then the secret votes. Here is where the real fun begins. Why not make some friendly bets?
First contagiion betray the others. First to become infected. And, the first to go bat shite nuts. Showdowns are resolved through a series of cards and some creative improv or, blatant B. Be they a rampaging horde of undead Lemures, a big zombie space-giant, or a rather thick door, he or she plays the cards.
Cpntagion want to play a higher card than the CiC if you wish to win the event. Therein lies the little twist. To make matter worse or, better depending on your point of view the other players might jump in with their cards.
They might help you, or they might spoil all your fantastic plans. In addition to the cards, Cannibal Contagion encourages player interaction. You could simply explain your actions and play your cards in dull tones.

But, a good CiC will look kindly upon creative and exuberant role-playing. Seriously, the more Grindhouse flair you can put into a scenario, the more fun everyone will have.
Cannibal Contagion is real joy to play.
With hyper action and frantic role-playing, Cannibal Contagion is the perfect game for the player that just wants to have some balls out undead fun. You can pick up your limited release copy at Guardian Games in Portland.
I love Lucio Fulci. He is the true Italian horror maestro. I love it when the chick pukes up her entrails. Gore horror never gets old. Your email address will not be published.
