''Last Night on Earth'' is a zombie-themed modular {{Adventure Board Game|s}} created by Flying Frog Productions in which players are split into two groups: Heroes and Zombies. The game objective changes based on which of several different given scenarios has been selected for play. The game takes great care in its thematic elements to achieve the look and feel of a zombie movie, causing the game to exhibit some of the most classic horror movie tropes.

!!This board game contains examples of:

* BeautyBrainsAndBrawn: The original three female heroes: [[TheHeart Sally]], [[TheMedic Becky]], and [[DeterminedHomesteadersChildren Jenny]]
* BreakableWeapons: Most weapons are either one-shot deals, or need a dice roll to see if it breaks ([[BoringButPractical the ones that don't need to take these challenges often give little benefit compared to the breakable weapons]]). Guns can't break, but can run out of ammo... which functions exactly like the "breaking" mechanic of the other weapons.
* ChainsawGood: A staple of zombie horror stories, and one of the most effective hand weapons in the game - provided [[BreakableWeapons it doesn't break]] [[OhCrap or run out of gas]]...
* TheDrifter: Jake Cartwright is called this by name.
* FiveManBand:
** The original adult heroes plus Sam from the first big-box expansion:
*** TheHero: [[BadassPreacher Father Joseph]]
*** TheLancer: [[TheSheriff Sheriff Anderson]]
*** TheSmartGuy: [[TheDrifter Jake Cartwright]]
*** TheBigGuy: [[RetiredBadass Sam]]
*** TheChick: [[TheMedic Becky]]
** The Student Heroes, from both the main-game and expansions:
*** TheHero: Billy
*** TheLancer: Sally
*** TheBigGuy: Johnny
*** TheSmartGuy: Kenny
*** TheChick: Amanda
*** SixthRanger: Jenny and Jade (for being outside the High School cliques)
** The initial heroes from the Timber Peak standalone expansion:
*** TheHero: Sheriff Anderson
*** TheLancer: Jake Cartwright
*** TheBigGuy: Ed Baker
*** TheSmartGuy: Nikki
*** TheChick: Alice and Sally
*** SixthRanger: [[AgentMulder Agent]] [[CIAEvilFBIGood Carter]] and Sister Ophelia
* MookMaker: Zombie Spawning Pits
* MustNotDieAVirgin: The Zombie player(s) can play a card ([[TitleDrop called "Last Night on Earth"]]) with this effect. It keeps a pair of male and female heroes from doing anything that turn. Oddly, it also means they don't have to fight any zombies on their space as well. Perhaps even the living dead can be DistractedByTheSexy?
* RevolversAreJustBetter: Sheriff Anderson and Detective Winters seem to think so, and though they aren't the most powerful guns in the game, they certainly win for reliability.
* StylisticSuck: Is deliberately designed to feel like a B-Movie ZombieApocalypse SlasherMovie, with all the gloriously cheesy tropes therein.
* {{Too Awesome To Use}}: ([[StuffBlowingUp Dynamite and Gasoline]])
** Subverted in some scenarios like "[[KillItWithFire Burn Em Out]]", where they're explicitly needed to blow [[MookMaker Spawning Pits]] sky-high, and when one can reliably take out a group of zombies without fragging other Heroes or mission objectives. Gasoline [[MundaneUtility can also be used as]], [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin well, gas]], for objectives requiring fuel, or for items like [[ChainsawGood the Chainsaw]].
* TownWithADarkSecret: [[AllThereInTheManual Some of the background material seems to indicate that Woodinvale is this]], but this is taken further in Survival of the Fittest, where the [[ApocalypticLog "Record" Cards]] reveal that [[spoiler: at least one major zombie outbreak occurred in 1956... and zombies have been spotted over the past four generations of the Anderson family]].
** Another dirty secret of Wooodinvale is [[spoiler: Sally's mother apparently being sent to the [[BedlamHouse Widowcrest Asylum]], and apparently had to get a full-fledged exorcism performed on her]]. [[CallBack This is mentioned in]] ''Timber Peak'', where Sally is considerably shaken by [[spoiler: not just Billy dying, but also discovering the dark secret of her mother]].
* ZombieApocalypse: Well, duh.
