November 5, 2015 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AUSTIN, Texas (November 5, 2015) – I Hate Zombies, the fast-paced Kickstarter favorite created by BoardGameGeek, boasts an exciting 10-minute experience for 2-12 players. In this treacherous party game, two teams fight for survival: zombies and the remaining humans who hate them.
From designer Kevin Wilson, known for work on A Game of Thrones, Sid Meier's Civilization, and Arkham Horror, comes the first Micro Game by BoardGameGeek. I Hate Zombies more than doubled its goal on Kickstarter with support from 3,811 backers.
Steve Jackson Games is thrilled to join the project, hoping to enlist zombie hordes via living rooms, cafés, and tabletop shops everywhere.
"As a Kickstarter backer myself, I'm excited to rock-paper-scissors zombie hordes at home and in the office," stated Rhea Friesen, Marketing Director for Steve Jackson Games.
