PLANTS & ZOMBIES

I don’t usually play games on my smartphone. None at all actually, but with one exception. 2 years ago I was obsessed with the simple but cute game Plants Vs. Zombies. The idea was simple; grow garden flowers that protect the house entrance from hordes of attacking zombies. It might sound silly, and it sure was. Yet, I was hooked!

When we had to create a board game in Package Design 2, I made the characters in the iPhone game come alive in an apocalyptic game of chess. The entire game is handmade! I crocheted the zombies, and the plants are made out of paper yarn. When the two teams are not fighting out a bloody battle on the turf board, the zombies sleep inside the coffin surrounded by flowers in terra cotta pots.
