Gameplay in Brief:

In Plants vs. Zombies: The Board Game, the goal is to protect your house from the advancing zombie hoarde by planting zombie-killing plants. Throughout the game, which lasts eight or nine rounds, players draw plant cards and zombie cards which they then distribute to all of the players, including themselves. One goal is to give yourself powerful plants and weak zombies, but of course your opponents gave the same goal.

As in the popular smartphone / tablet app, lawnmowers are the last line of defense -- but every unused lawn mower is worth victory points at game's end, and the player with the most VPs wins.
