Zombicide_


You've fought zombies in the malls. You've fought them in the morgues. You've fought them in the prisons. You've fought them in castles. You've fought them in hedgerows. You'll soon be fighting them in space. But this new Zombicide lets you fight zombies in an all-new way. CMON has announced a new Zombicide Role-Playing Game.
This is a pretty big release month for CMON. They've got two core games and two expansions, split up between some of their more popular games. There's the latest version of Zombicide in the form of Green Horde. There's also the Rise of Moloch core box. The expansions are for Lorenzo il Magnifico, as well as Bloodborne: The Card Game.
You ever have one of those days where you wake up, get going with doing things, then look at the clock and are like, "Whoah! It's already 7pm!! How'd that happen!?!" Yeah, that was my yesterday. I woke the same as any other day except a voice was in my head... Ok, no voices in my head, but I did get started on various things, then realized that goddamn, it was late! So you didn't get your reviews yesterday. So I'm making up for it by posting them early today. Don't worry, this won't become a regular thing.

Anyway, today we have: Elder Sign: Omens of the Pharaoh, Zombicide: Green Horde, Batman: Gotham City Chronicles, Listit, Draconis Invasion, Dice Throne, Palm Island, City of Gears, Stuffed Fables, Pandemic: Rising Tide, V-Commandos: Secret Weapons, Planet of the Apes, Indian Summer, When I Dream, and Gaia Project.

Hello, Friday, my old friend.
This has been the first full-week of the year, methinks. Like, ok, I know that we're already into February, but I think this might be the only week where I've been up and into the office each day. Just been that type of year so far, I suppose. What might help is bulking up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: The Army Painter Announces New Zombicide: Green Horde Paint Sets, Dice Coins Up On Kickstarter, Muddleflog Paper Miniatures Are Now Available, and New Oval Ancient Machinery Bases Available From Tabletop-Art.

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.
No matter how long a Kickstarter campaign is, there's always the chance you just don't have the funds available at the time. It's happened to all of us. Well, if it happened to you during the Zombicide: Green Horde Kickstarter campaign, never fear! The Late Pledges have opened up and let you jump right in, getting all those great exclusives I know you all love so much.
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 their populations turned into zombies. Now they're coming into the human lands. Green Horde is a new standalone expansion to Zombicide: Black Plague. It's up on Kickstarter now.
Also: Zombie Dragon.
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 launching at the end of May on Kickstarter and CMON's posted an overview of what you can expect.
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 this case, it's Green Horde. Yes, as if humans, wolves, and crows weren't bad enough, now the survivors of the zombie plague will have to fight zombie orcs and goblins.
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 available today that you can pick up at your LGS.
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 your options.

Saturday! Saturday! Saturday!
Saturday! Saturday! Saturday!
Saturday! Saturday! Saturday night's alright!
Ok, so it's not actually Saturday night yet, but it will be soon (well, for me. Some of you are already well into Saturday night. Bloody time zones). Anyway, I know what you want. You want some reviews. So let's get to it.

Today we have: Package, Zombicide Black Plague, GAMEMAT EU's Battle Mats, Sprue Grey: Wargame Hobby Magazine - The Golden D6 Tutorial Issue, D-Day at Omaha Beach, The Walking Dead: All Out War, Beer Empire, The Undercity, Haspelknecht, Pursuit of Happiness, Dracula’s Feast, Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small iOS, Agricola: Family Edition, Dwarf War, and Get Rich Quick.

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 if they're pumpkin flavored. They're also available now.
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, y'know, eating people's faces. Well, there's 4 new releases available so you can expand your Middle Ages zombie-hunting games.
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 point bringing you Zombicide, with CMON producing and distributing the game. Now they're going to be even tighter as the franchise moves forward.
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 sort of thing happen. And that's just what is happening with Hero Box 1, Zombie Bosses, and the Paul Bonner Special Guest Artist box.
It's been a great day here at the CMON Expo. Lots of cool stuff going on. Lots to see. Lots to do.

What? You don't believe me? I thought we were better friends than that. But fine, if you want photographic evidence of the awesomeness, that's alright. I've got you covered.
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.
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, a virtual player dashboard, an action manager, and even virtual dice. Well, the 3.0 version of the app is now available.
The zombies are invading! The zombies are invading!
Zombicide Black Plague is now available online and at local retailers near you. This new set takes Zombicide in a whole new direction by putting it in a whole different place and time. Gone are the modern shopping centers and hospitals. Now you get peasant huts and dark, brooding vaults. This isn't your old Zombicide, it's Ye Olde Zombicide.
This first full week of the new year went by really fast for me. Did it go by fast for you? Though I'm sitting here in my Friday shirt, I was still a bit surprised when I looked and saw, "Oh, hey, it's time to schedule up Friday Snippets. ... I thought it was, like, Tuesday or something."
But Friday it is. (Woot! Woot!) So Snippets it shall be.

Today's bite-sized stories include: The Broken Token Releases Zombicide Organization Sets, Kalmbach expands reach with acquisition of Rather Dashing Games, Nexus Miniatures Posts News Updates, Kromlech Releases Morbid Beast "Chimney", Kabuki Models Taking Pre-Orders For Second Wave of Star Vixen, Meeple Source Kickstarter Happening Now, Techno Bowl Helmet + Team Preview #1, and Thundercloud Miniatures webstore reopens.

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, Guillotine Games has posted up the rules for Zombicide: Black Plague online for you to check out.
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 (besides, you know, leveling up in the game as you play, that is). CoolMiniOrNot is now taking pre-orders for Zombicide Ultimate Survivors #2.
Welcome to Friday, ladies and gentlenerds. We've made it here once more. Congratulations!
It means the weekend is just about here. Time to rejoice.
It also means we have a batch of bite-sized stories to bring to you now. Let's dig in.

Today we have: Arena Rex new release: Hagal, Dead of Winter Roberta Plum Promo Available From Plaid Hat Games, New Black Plague Zombicide Paint Set From The Army Painter Coming Soon, New Dawrves from Scibor, Kromlech New Release - Gentleorc Heads, New Maneuver Dials for X-Wing From Fantasy Flight Games, Dragon Queen finally available From Kabuki Models, Little Orc Wars: Human Troopers Available From Skirmisher Publishing, New Wild West Exodus Previews Posted, Cul-De-Sac Conquest Kickstarter Campaign - Week in Review, and Relicblade: Adventure Battle Game Inbound.
