CMON Limited (Cool Mini Or Not) yesterday announced that it has acquired all branding and intellectual property rights for the successful Zombicide franchise from Guillotine Games. Guillotine Games will continue to work exclusively with CMON to bring fans new exciting titles, all with the quality they’ve come to expect from both companies.

Zombicide is a cooperative board game, in which 1 to 6 players take on the role of survivors of a zombie apocalypse. They play scenarios on different maps made from modular map tiles and they have to find weapons and kill zombies. However, the more zombies they kill, the more powerful the undead become!
Zombicide was first introduced to the gamers through the crowd-funding site Kickstarter. The franchise currently includes Zombicide Season 1, Zombicide Season 2: Prison Outbreak, Zombicide Season 3: Rue Morgue, Zombicide: Black Plague and multiple expansions. In total, it has sold tens of thousands of units through retail stores and Kickstarter.
