4. Survival at Z-Hour

Do you enjoy zombie movies? Try this game, it will not leave you disappointed. You will have to discover a cure for the zombie epidemic. You are already so close, just a couple more questions to answer. The problem is that there is almost no time left. The facility where the action takes place is full of walking monsters.

Grab a team of up to 10 people, get you $25 ready and try your best in this almost hopeless endeavor. You will definitely be proud of yourself in case of a success. Keep in mind that happy people can solve problems more effectively, so maybe get some ice-cream before you start.

5. Prohibition – The Lucky Duck

You are a leader of the crackdown on illegal liquor stores. All the evidence you need about the huge criminal organization is within Lucky Duck Speakeasy.
