So.... not that the game is overpriced.... but this card is for sure ($135.99) AND they want $6.99 for shipping shake

I know some of you will say just don't buy it but if you want the card for use in your game....and two of them...here's what you can do...


So the way I beat the crazy price for this card....
First find one as low priced as you can, the lowest one I could find on E-bay was for $45.99 + free shipping
(still way overpriced in my opinion)

Brought it to Staples and photocopied it twice (front & back in the highest quality printing they could do.

I made 2 cards for my self and resold the original card on E-bay to get back the money I spent (along with instructions on what I did for the next buyer so they could save money to if they wanted too)

My cost $5.00 for the two cards....whistle

Sorry for the rant but some things just burn my butt

Here is the auction I'm talking about:

Let the free market do its thing, no need to let it burn anything.

Easy solution, paste up over the top of one of the foreign language cards. Boom. Mission accomplished.

CMON Expo. They released a pack for Zombicide, Z:BP, B-Seiged, Arcadia Quest and one other.

My solution to the price was not caring about owning every single promo item.

Isn't this card kinda sorta similar to Earthquake? I mean why do I need it if it is similar? I think I'm good.

Earthquake's effects affect all actors, survivors and zombies.
Ice Blast effects only affect zombies.

Earthquake's range is 0-1
Ice Blast's range is 0-2

Earthquake: all actors in the target zone to lose their next activations.
Ice Blast: zombies cannot move that turn (but can still attack if there's a survivor stuck in the zone).

Earthquake's effects happen on a successful roll (4+)
Ice Blast's effects happen when a 6 is rolled.

Earthquake makes noise.
Ice Blast is silent.

But I don't blame you, $135 for a card, even a promo card is ridiculous!

If I can't get Promo or KS exclusive cards at a reasonable price, I either ignore them or make my own home brew version using Photoshop.

More power to people who can get crazy prices for their crap, though.

'Crazy Z:BP pricing' makes it sound like the game manufacturers are setting the pricing. 'Crazy Ice Blast Spell card pricing' more accurately reflects your rant and doesn't threaten the butts of others.

As much as people complain about KS exclusives, they are much easier to acquire (back the KS) than other types of promos (attend a convention).

If you make your own, you also get the advantage of being able to modify it if you think the original is OP.

I don't know why they don't make things like these available from their website like most the other game companies I buy from.
