“The goal of the game is for all survivors to reach the reputed safe haven of Jackson by day twelve, before the map is overrun by Infected.
Do that, you survive and win the game. However, if any member of the group is killed along the way, you all lose. How you get there is up to you. From the very first turn you’ll begin to weave your own unique story of survival. Will you stay together or split up? Travel fast or explore to gather supplies? The further into the map you go, the harder the challenges become.”
