Insider Secret #1:
All backgrounds for the zombie cards were photographed in the designer's home town of Selah, WA to simulate the small town feel of Pittsville.
Insider Secret #2:
Did you know... the zombie outbreak in Pittsville was caused by one of the characters from Chris Weedin's novel "Another Rotten Night"! Do you know him? Here's a hint - he's got his very own card in Relentless...
The Card Game of Non-Stop Zombie Carnage and Lots and Lots of Shooting
Want action?! Want mayhem? Want nail-biting tension?! Want to run around scrounging for ammo and whatever else you can dig up that might help save your miserable hide in a zombie-infested wasteland?! Or better yet... wanna BE the zombies?! If any of that tickles your fancy, then you're in luck - or at least, you're in Pittsville...
Welcome to Pittsvile
Not such a bad place... until the Zompocalypse hit. Now everyone is either dead, green or heading for the hills, leaving you as the only eligible edible brain for 100 miles. Your only hope is to fix up an old broken down jeep and high tail it out of there before the wormsuits mob you. If you can dig up enough spare parts, ammo and courage, you just might make it out alive. So get out there, start scroungin' and don't stop shootin'! Or, throw in with the zombies and race to shut down all the escape routes before the human can make his getaway. Just keep jamming corpses in there until you dogpile your dinner - then open up the brain buffet! Either way, pick a side and get a move on, because if it's one thing you can say about these rampaging, ravenous undead, they're... RELENTLESS!
What the Madness Is All About
Relentless is a 2 (or more) player card game simulating a zombie uprising in the remote rural town of Pittsville, AZ. The Human Player controls the sole survivor of the uprising and attempts to escape the zombie-infested town by repairing a broken down jeep and burning rubber out of there. The zombies, controlled by the Zombie Player, attempt to stop him by cutting off the three escape routes that lead safely out of town.Features

Don't take our word for it (you shouldn't trust anyone during the Zompocalypse anyway) - check out the slick video demos below for a quick overview of game play, card layouts and function for both Human and Zombie and a little fun we had at the Yakima Zombie Walk.
