Card description

It's hammer time. #hadtobesaid

Update history

Update 1.4.14

  • Rarity change: Rare → Uncommon



Basically a cheaper and watered-down version of Squash, Whack-a-Zombie is perfect for destroying annoying zombies with low strength like the Jester, Zombie King, Aerobics Instructor, Team Mascot, Tomb Raiser Zombie, or basically anything along those lines. However, since this trick cannot destroy zombies with 4 or more strength, it becomes less useful in the later rounds, since there will be more zombies that have more than 3 strength. In that case, use Scorched Earth, Weed Whack, or Water Balloons to lower the zombie's strength to allow this trick to destroy it.


Whack-a-Zombie can easily destroy your important zombies in an instant, so beware. Unfortunately, there is no real counter to this trick other than to keep all your zombies' strength at 4 or more.
