I had heard of Zombie Dice before, but I never learned to play until I saw a demonstration at Comic-Con. It's a fast and fun game that's perfect for waiting in long lines or car rides or really playing anywhere, as long as there's a flat surface.
In this game, you are the zombie and you want brains!! There are 14 dice in 3 colors: green, yellow, and red. On each die is 3 possible outcomes: shotgun blasts, footprints, or brains. The shotgun blasts are bad and mean that you've been shot. The footprints aren't horrible, but they mean that your prey has walked away. The brains are awesome because the object is to eat them. The colors indicate the probability of getting good rolls, the best being green (84%), the worst being red (50%).
To win, you must have 13 brains saved. On your turn, you roll 3 random dice. You keep the shotgun blasts and the brains and you can re-roll the rest and add more random ones when needed, always rolling 3 dice. Your turn is over when you run out of dice, get 3 shotgun blasts, or want to save your brains. If you get 3 shotgun blasts, you lose any brains you may have gotten in that turn. When one person gets at least 13 brains, there is one more round to give everyone else a chance to catch up to or surpass that player. It's super easy to learn and fun to play with pretty much any amount of people of almost any age group.
