Zombie War is a 2-4 player game that takes the zombie threat to a global level. Each player has two hidden victory conditions and has to reach them using a rotating selection of roles, each with different powers and ways to gain victory points. In one turn you might be playing as the zombies, the next the government, the next the military, and finally the corporations. [Forum]
Hidden in the deepest part of the Secret Swamp, there lived a Great Tree. The Great Tree was very big, and very old, and very wise, and she remembered a great many things. Among these she remembered the day the first frogs came to the Secret Swamp, and settled there, building houses and boats, and docks and fishing poles. Mark Herman's Ribbit is deceptively easy to learn, with a handful of rules. But like the many classic wargames he's designed over the years, this one is subtle and beguiling, revealing its depth over repeated plays. [Forum]
