Green Horde Preview From Media Event

At the CMON Media Event, we were able to get a look at various games that they have coming down the pipeline. One has a bit of extra pull for me, since I’m an old greenskin. Green Horde is the newest set for Zombicide: Black Plague. The horrible zombie menace hasn’t just been contained to humans and some animals. The Orcs have also fallen victim to it. The implications for that are pretty gruesome for the few remaining survivors.

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.

Zombie Crowz And Special Guest Boxes Available Now For Zombicide: Black Plague

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 are seeking to devour the flesh of the living. It’s going to take some stalwart heroes to face down this menace and make the world safe for the not-un-dead. And that’s just what we have with the new Zombie Crowz as well as the Guest Artist Boxes now being available for Zombicide: Black Plague.

Zombicide: Black Plague Expansions Now Available

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.

Zombicide: Black Plague/Massive Darkness Crossover Set Add-On Added to Kickstarter

Zombicide: Wulfsburg Expansion Now Available

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 Wulfsburg expansion to Zombicide, you will run into zombie wolves (and the wolfbomination, which is pretty close to a werewolf, but not exactly one), which is probably worse.
