Hi,

What do you think about range increment penalty variant?

For example:

Assault rifle has range increment of 8/-1 (every 8 spaces you get -1 to die roll but you always hit on natural 8 on D8)

Also it can go for example in positive way. If the zombie is closer that 4 spaces then you can get +1 to roll, if it is closer that 2 spaces +2...(but you always miss on 1 on D8)

Because the unlimited range for Bow, rifle and gun and the same chance to hit the target wherever they are is a little bit hard to comprehend.

Just a thought.

The way we see it (thematically) is that when a zombie is far away you can take a more steady shot. When a zombie is really close a bit of panic sets in - evening out the accuracy.

From a game play point of view, the +1 at close range would make clearing rooms much easier and unbalance the game.

But , feel free to give it a go, and let us know how you find it.

A -1 at long range would increase difficulty, if you can complete issues 1+2 with that variant you will have mastered the game!!!:zombie:

Maybe :-) but we are a good zombie killers:-).

I'll first try to finish issues 1 and 2 as the rules say and if it looks to easy maybe try the director cards and after that maybe add the range increment.

Btw. yesterday finished mission 4 after 4 hours of cat and mouse game (almost like chess :-)) and at the end (last 5 turns or so) with only melee weapons slashing through to the last spawn point :-)....
The greatest experience in tactical gaming I had in years.

Great game James. Glad I backed you guys up :-).

Hope there will be issues 3 and 4 soon :-)

Knife is 3.5 inches. The three shots were taken at 100 yards with an 'assault rifle' with an Aimpoint PRO red dot from a prone unsupported firing position. I find it pretty plausible that long range in the game is likely within this 100 yards, and think even moderately trained folks are not gonna have too much trouble hitting those shots. As mentioned, the longer range gives you a bit more time to line up the shot.
