Basically a cheaper and watered-down version of Squash, Whack-a-Zombie is perfect for destroying soon-to-be annoying zombies with low strength like Jester, Zombie King, Aerobics Instructor, Stompadon, Team Mascot, Tomb Raiser Zombie, or basically anything along those lines. Additionally, it can take out some annoying 3 strength zombies such as Dolphin Rider, Pool Shark, Abracadaver, etc. However, since this trick cannot destroy zombies with 4 or more strength, it becomes less useful in the later rounds, since there are more zombies that have more than 3 strength. In that case, play 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. You can keep all your zombies' strength at 4 or more, or better, play Parasol Zombie to give them the Untrickable trait. However, against Wall-Knight, take caution doing the former, as he can also use Doom-Shroom and Shamrocket.
The best counter is to use a late-game control deck, which will likely have very few zombies with 3 or less strength and thus will clutter your opponent's deck.
