A friend of mine has it; I played it for the first time a few months back.  I played in three games (can't remember the first scenario, but the second was Escape in the Truck and the third was Burn Down the Manor House) - twice as a hero, and once as a zombie player.  It took me about half of that third game to really understand how to play the zombie horde.  (Also our Grave Dead were not nearly as awesome as advertised.)
I didn't come here to win. I came to make friends.

I've heard great stuff about all of Flying Frog's games. I would love to play one of their games.

I've played it several times and I can vouch for it. Fairly simple but very fun game. Considering checking out the expansion sets for the game to get even more mileage out of it.

Yeah the expansions kick ass.

My group keeps fluffing the multiple combatants rules when it comes to zombies.  Sometimes they play it one-on-one against each zombie, and other times they just roll all the zombie attack dice together.

They also have a tendency to double the amount of zombies in game.
