County Road Z Core Rulebook (PDF)


Gather your survivors, build your community, and battle the zeds!

County Road Z is a solo game of miniature tabletop combat and resource management, set during the zombie apocalypse. Scavenge materials to build watchtowers, workshops, generators and more, and then take it to the tabletop, where the zombies react to every grenade, shotgun, and scream! Combat zeds (and perhaps worse) across warehouses, graveyards, road wreckage, mansions and more.

Upgrade your base facilities and build new weapons and armor to keep your survivors safe for the next mission. Where will your next community base be? A distillery? A firehouse? A hydroelectric dam? Build your defenses bigger and better... but quietly, or the zombie horde will be at your door.

Build your own Apocalypse

Enjoy the End Times your way with the Apocalypse Toolkit, containing a multitude of optional rules including a variety of specialized zombies, advanced rules for firearms and vehicles, seasonal weather conditions, and your choice of apocalypse. Plug-and-play whichever options fit your playstyle, whether you favor complexity, ease of play, or a combination of both.

I've got the original (?) CRZ from a couple of years ago. How much of this version is new material please?

The rules work the same, the new one is just heavily updated, edited, reorganized and added to! There's loads more optional rules, a timeline for advancing the Rot over the course of a campaign, and three possible zombie origins, complete with their own missions, rules, weapons, and special zeds. I'd say it's about 33% new material, give or take, but you won't have to relearn the rules.

Thank you, that's helpful. It's the campaign elements I particularly like about the original version, so this sounds like an update I'll want.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
