Granted, the zombie meme may be on the verge of playing out but an interesting title currently running on Kickstarter is Zombicide: a collaborative game for one to six players developed by Guillotine Games and published by CoolMiniOrNot. The project is already over 300% funded and one of the things that stands out is the inclusion of 71 28mm miniatures which look pretty sweet. There’s still time to back the project as it continues through May 6th.
Zombicide is a collaborative game for 1 to 6 players developed by Guillotine Games and published by CoolMiniOrNot. A game lasts for 20min (beginner board) to 3 hours (expert board).
Each player controls from one (for 6 players) to four (solo game) “survivors”, human beings in a zombie-infested town. In fact, “survivors” hastily change to “hunters” to smash zombies through and through. However, the team must constantly keep the balance between survival and slaughter: as the zombicide’s going on, the “Danger level” is going up and infected are growing in numbers. Any misstep can turn to disaster.
Zombicide is a fun and easy game with cool minis in an archetypical, popular and comics-inspired environment. Ambiance is constantly kept between “beat’em up” and “survival horror” as characters keep on turning from preys to predators. Humor and gloom happily marry in a zombie-fest.
