Following a cataclysmic event, survivors are forced to scavenge as their only hope of staying alive. Even worse, the dead (the Zeds), are attacking the living.

As one of the few survivors you will build a Base, obtain resources by scavenging the Community Map, protect your group using weapons and building defences, and construct facilities to make like a little more tolerable.


If you can survive the Zeds and gain the most influence points at the end of the six rounds, you will be the victor of Survive Alive!!

Survive Alive is a competitive medium weight strategy based draw and write game set in a post-apocalyptic world lasting six rounds.
Each round, survivors (players) need to manage their resources drawn from the community bag, build facilities for their characters in order to increase the community health and morale and most importantly defend their base to protect from the Zeds.
Players may scavenge the map for influence or befriend characters to boost their resource pile and grow the community.

At the end of each round, hordes of Zeds will be looking for flesh and if you can’t beat them, you may be joining them!!

The player with the most influence points at the end of the sixth round is declared the winner.
