WYSIWYGames Running Z First Impact Kickstarter

I took French in high school (because I just knew that I was going to play hockey and I wanted to be able to talk with my French-Canadian teammates). However, as you can tell, I did not end up being drafted for the NHL, and so my French skills are lacking. As such, if I were trying to play a game that was in French, I would have a hell of a time.

WYSIWYGames is creating an English version of the French board game, Z First Impact, a cooperative game where players are trying to live in a city that’s had just about everything bad happen to it (meteors, zombies, aliens, mutants, the works).

Well, I mean, it’s on the tabletop, as a new game from WYSIWYGames. (Oh, that’s good, then. Tell me more.)
That’s just what they’re doing, as they’ve got a new website with a new preview of the game up. (Perfect!)
