Well, this is a bit of news. We know that Mayfair Games in the past year has relinquished Catan. Well, it seems they're looking to move towards a more... undead direction with acquiring a controlling interest in Twilight Creations, most well-known for the Zombies!!! line of games and accessories.
Many of you have played at least one of version of Zombicide by now, so you know whether you like the basic premise of the series from Guillotine Games. Run around a board made of up different tiles, complete objectives, and kill lots of zombies along with way. Currently, tabletop gamers have their pick of Zombicide, Prison Outbreak, and Rue Morgue (plus a few expansions), each bringing something a little different to the table. If you’re like me, I always felt each one was simply an iteration of the last, not degrading the experience but also not pushing it forward in an overly-meaningful way. However, after having a chance to sit down with a non-final version of the game, I’m happy to say I think that’s all going to change with Zombicide: Black Plague.

Saber's Edge is selling copies of the Plague City supplement for the Pike & Shot & Zombies rules from AB One Games. From their announcement:
AB One Games Plague City - A supplement for Pike & Shot & Zombies by Stephen Danes Plague City is the first game supplement for Pike & Shot & Zombies, the post-apocalyptic Renaissance survival game! Included in this booklet are thirteen scenarios set in the hideous and dangerous confines of the plague city. Once a mighty fortress and great city, perched on the banks of a broad and swift flowing river, beset from all sides by armies and looters and vagabonds. This great city succumbed to its final assault. Armies it could humiliate, besiegers it could resist, but against the cold fury of the dead it could not hold out. Thirty thousand inhabitants stared into the faces of the dead and knew that the end had come. Few escaped the slaughter... Now the living, the survivors, shun this place. Death awaits those that return to the city, death or worse! Smoke and the stench of decay arise from this accursed place. Grey and ragged figures make their shambling progression through ruined streets in an endless quest for living flesh, their blood-caked mouths, dry, shuddering, craving. And yet some survivors look on this forbidding city as a potential source of great wealth. What use to the dead have for the riches of the church, the fine merchant houses and sumptuous palaces? Surely an expedition into this damned city would be worth it. Risky, yes - but rewarding - surely! And for players valiant enough to risk the Plague City, a host of new event-cards await to trip up and challenge these survivors brave enough to enter.
