Default Similar Games to Zombie Dice?

Hey everyone, I am learning so much on this forum after only playing Munchkins for the first time a couple weeks ago, and since then I have bought a copy of Zombie Dice and Cthulhu Dice along with some Munchkin expansion packs and me and my friends are having a blast playing it. It has taken over our nightly ritual after work (so long TitanFall 2) but we are starting to get the itch for something more.

I read that the only other SJ dice game is Proteus, and it doesn't seem that interesting to me. I like playing Zombie and Cthulhu dice as mentioned so I am looking for a dice game similar to those that we can play after work to unwind for a little bit. Thanks in advance everyone!

I have ordered some of the games that I was interested on here such as Chupacabra and Mars Attacks, and I also found some really weird board and dice games that were being sold at http://www.for-sale.co.uk/dice-board-games that I picked up just so we have a weird game to break out at the end of the night for a tie breaker. Can't wait for the next night off me and my friend share!

Mars Attacks, Trophy Buck and Batman: The Animated Series dice games all play a lot like Zombie Dice. Chupacabra: Survive The Night is another fast paced push your luck game with different mechanics. Hipster Dice is... different.

All the dice games are here:

There is also Dino Hunt Dice, in the ZD family. Note that there is no GURPS in the Batman title :)

Stupid autocorrect wants every thing that starts with [I][B] to be a GURPS book.

When AI wipes us out, it won't be via SkyNet. It'll be self-modifying code with autocorrect that does it.

Awesome, thanks for the link. So far I am liking the look of Mars Attacks and Chupacabra.

I like to describe Mars Attacks Dice as "Zombie Dice plus strategy," because while the mechanics are the same, the fact that you have to choose which city to fight over is a game-changer (for the better).

Yeah Mars Attacks Dice is the best of the ZD family games (that I have played anyway) in my opinion as well.

I also vote for Mars Attacks. The card structure adds a lot to the game, and I love when nuking on purpose is a good thing. :-)
