Default Zombie Dice Brains?

Hello all,

I am rather new to the site, but have been an on-and-off again player of SJG's GURPS games during the mid-late Nineties. Of course, over the last few years; I have definitely been sucked into (very happily) buying various Munchkin games/expansions & now Zombie Dice.

I've been looking for Zombie Dice since I saw it on Wil Wheaton's "Tabletop" web series... It's been sold out at my local gaming shop, but I was actually able to find it at Barnes & Noble, of all places...

Now, besides seeing that there is an add-on set made for Zombie Dice that will be picked up soon; I am curious...

Is there an official 'bucket of brains' or brain token for this game?
If not, does Steve Jackson Games recommend a specific 'brain token' for the game?


Thanks for sharing your knowledge with this newcomer to the forum!

We have discussed a few ideas but there's nothing official at the moment.

I've used the brains from a game called "Mmm, Brains"; from Twilight Creations I think...?

Weren't there some green promo coins for this? They weren't Munchin coins, that's for sure.

There were, but they're long gone.

Around Halloween, sometimes one can find gummi brains... Those would probably work quite well! If, well, with a limited lifespan. *nomnomnom*

I use those myself, but I need to find some larger tokens to use when I play with younger kids.

They're 2D tokens, but I notice Dapper Devil has these now.

Wil Wheaton had a great bucket of brains, but I can't recall if he said where he got them (and don't have time to rewatch atm).

His prop guy made them, so that won't help most folks, unfortunately.

There are places that sell toy brains and such, so those often can be found cheaply. Here's a place that has some options, for example.

They were custom made by someone on his crew.
