As with the big-box releases for Zombicide, there’s a smaller-box expansion that goes along with it. In the case of Green Horde (currently up on Kickstarter), it’s the Friends and Foes box. There’s some new survivors, new familiars, and some new tiles, full of zombie goodness....

The Black Plague games have shown us that it’s not just humans that can succumb to the forces that cause you to be raised from the dead and seek to feast on the living. We’ve seen crows and wolves, but other sentient races can be affected as well. I Green Horde, the orcs have had [&hellip...

Be that as it’s May, we’ve got all sorts of plants blooming. The world is becoming green. Though the green that’s just over the horizon isn’t quite what we want to have in our garden. Green Horde is the new standalone set coming for Zombicide: Black Plague. It’ll be laun...

Overnight, CMON’s Rising Sun Kickstarter came to an end. It did alright. If you consider $4.2 million, “alright.” o,O As has become customary, the end of the old campaign ushers in an announcement of a new one. In this case, it’s a new expansion for Zombicide: Black Plague. In...

It’s the last day of the month. We’re 1/4 of the way through the year. The summer heat isn’t far away. Time to get your board game collection bulked up and get set for some hot months ahead (or cold ones, if you’re down south). CMON’s got a whole bunch of new releases av...

October is the time for all sorts of spooky and scary things to invade our everyday world. Zombies certainly fit into that category. Seems a couple games of Zombicide would be a perfect way to celebrate the season. And in just a couple days, there’ll be some more releases for the game to expand...

I totally failed to realize that yesterday was the first day of autumn. So it’s officially ok to start talking about all things spooky and scary. Pumpkin-flavored everything! The latest releases for Black Plague fit the first thing fairly well. Though I wouldn’t suggest trying to find out...

The Black Plague in the world of Zombicide is a bit different from that of the real world. Here, you had rats and fleas carrying a virulent diseases all across Europe. The Zombicide world is a bit more straight-forward: You just had necromancers spawning zombies all over the place and those zombies, ...

Gen Con’s on, but not all of the news is coming from the convention floor. This one just hit my inbox and I wanted to share. CMON has picked up the branding and intellectual property rights for Zombicide from Guillotine Games. The two companies have been working hand-in-hand all up to this poin...

It’s bad enough that there’s humans that have been infected by the zombie plague. Then you’ve got the wolves coming after you as well. But this time around, the zombie plague is going airborn (of sorts) as now even the crows have succumbed to the foul magics of the necromancers and ...

The Kickstarter campaign for Zombicide: Black Plague had a lot of Kickstarter-exclusive expansions and add-ons for it. But that’s not to say that all of it was Kickstarter-exclusive. Several of those expansions were slated for regular retail release. And, as you know, I always love to see that ...

Well, hopefully by checking out the Massive Darkness rulebook, you’ve seen that Massive Darkness and Zombicide: Black Plague are different games. But that doesn’t mean that there’s no way to crossover between the two. It just takes a bit. That bit is now available as an add-on in th...

I saw a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand, walkin’ through the streets of Soho in the rain. Ok, being fair, I’ve never been to London, and thus, never to Soho. Maybe someday. I hope I don’t run into any werewolves, though. And while you might run into a werewolf in the Wulfsb...

A lot of people love Zombicide. To help you play, a companion app has been around for a while, but this version updates the User Interface to be more user-friendly. It does away with the need for a lot of the various extras and sundries of the game. It has a virtual equipment card deck, […]...

We all know that I think it’s great when a company posts the rules for their games for free online. To me, it shows trust in their product. “We know you’re going to love the game. Just read it for yourself.” It lets people try out a game before they decide to buy it. Well, [&h...

Fighting zombies isn’t easy. There seems to be a never-ending wave of them and eventually you’re gonna run out of bullets. Fighting them makes one tough. And the heroes from the first Zombicide game have been fighting zombies for quite some time now. As such, they’ve leveled-up (bes...

Saturday was everything one would expect from Gen Con. The hallways were certainly filled with gamers, geeks, and nerds of all type. All sorts of awesome things were happening. Too many to just have still photos cover it all. Thankfully, there’s video, and CMON has a Day 3 video wrap-up they...

You’d think you’d unlock the doors, but when zombies are around, you’re more likely to want to add more on. This goes extra-true if there’s an Abominalpha running around. Both of these things are the case over in the Zombicide: Black Plague Kickstarter campaign. Continuing to ...
