The variation in gameplay largely extends from the variation in the dice. Red dice have three blasts but only one brain. Green dice have three brains but only one blast. Yellow are balanced. Drawing a handful of red dice can greatly increase your chances of getting shot out in a single round. Not guaranteed, for sure. Plenty of times it was a couple of green dice with shotgun blasts that ended the greedy zombie. For those looking to add a little flavor to the game, by the way, call the red, yellow, and green dice "Daddy", "Mommy", and "Baby" respectively. Or maybe "Jock", "Chav", and "Nerd". Delight as you get one of each color in hand and get to take a shot at the whole family or to re-enact

Really, it comes down to luck: you can get three shotgun blasts from any combo of dice (it just goes from 1:216 with all green to 1:8 with all red). Play the odds, though, and adlib your best "brraaaaainnns" jokes* or "Red light! Green light!" puns and have at it. It's a Good game. This one edges out its cousin,
* Of course, this might earn my ire after a little bit, since only one zombie movie (of the old school, anyhow) has actually used the "brains" bit:
