I had a blast at ArctiCon today, demoing The Walking Dead All Out War.

I had set it as a co-op for 2 players. After explaining the rules, I'd have the players choose from the 6 pairs of survivors that I put together, each pair being 74 or 75 points worth of characters and equipment. So it would be a total of 150 points for both players, thus having 10 walkers start on the board.

The goal was to enter from the edge of the road (opposite of the car and truck), and get into the diner and grab the 2 food tokens, and get off the board via the corner area that they entered from.

I had 4 different pairs of people playing this, so 8 people got to play and all had a blast.

I couldn't really add to Scott's entry during the day, because during the game, I had to help and answer questions and offer some suggestions etc. And when I tried between games, someone would come up and want to chat, which I would rather do anyway, as I haven't had a chance to talk to some friends in a while. So I'll try to recap from memory now.

The first two guys had chosen Morgan and Duane, and Derek and Liam. They were funny, because the one player, had Liam with a low nerve, and he really wanted to keep making sure he didn't panic, so he made sure to remind his buddy not to forget to try to Hold Nerve to try to reduce the threat. They also were the longest at playing, as they kind of wanted to try to search for a lot of supply tokens that they really didn't need to, but wanted to for fun.

The next pair also took Morgan and Duane, and Derek and Liam. They were fun and took to it well. But both had to stop short of finishing because of commitments to Catan and an RPG.

The 3rd pair were a brother and sister that were maybe 12 and 13? They were an absolute blast, as they had so much fun and it was rewarding to see them have fun and hear their comments. The girl took Dale and Andy, while the boy took Sandra and Patrick. Poor Dale got bit early on, as he got advanced a little further than he should have and him being a marksman with a rifle, he is pretty weak in melee. So he got bit and that means that at the end of every round, you roll the 50/50 die to see if he takes an additional wound. The kids had a good system, as the brother was good at rolling shields on the 50/50 die, so he would roll to try to keep Dale from taking an additional wound, while his sister was better at rolling blanks on the 50/50 die, so she would roll when rolling to see if prone walkers would stand back up. Well Dale did get weaker over time and they decided to have go out as a hero so that the others could get food for their friends back at camp. So Dale killed a walker with his rifle but it was his last bullet. He wouldn't give up, so he ran toward the dumpster area and drew a walker into melee, and this time he killed it. He again moved toward the dumpster and got engaged by another walker, but this time his luck ran out and he got killed and came back as a walker. But, he drew enough walkers away from the south side of the diner, that the others were able to get in, take out the 2 walkers inside and get the food back to camp. Lots of fun.

The 4th pair were a couple friends of my nephew Tyler. Actually, one of them was his roommate down at Purdue. They took Patrick and Sandra, and Rick and Carl. They were really fun too, as Dakota with Rick and Carl was hesitant to have Rick use his pistol, which he is awesome with, but he didn't want to risk causing Mayhem and draw a lot of walkers to him. But he did near the end of the game at the south side of the diner, as he was on a rampage, shooting, killing and knocking some walkers down. Carl then would follow up and headstomp some of the prone walkers left in Rick's wake. Meanwhile, Mike did good with Patrick and Sandra, as they got in the diner and took out the 2 walkers within, and Sandra was able to get both food tokens. It was fun, because she is a Runner and can climb over obstacles without having to roll the 50/50 die for success, so she hopped over the counter and took out waitress walker while Patrick took out cop walker in the dining area. After Sandra secured the 2nd food token, she hopped over the counter by the kitchen area, squeezing under the menu board, and made her way out. Oh yeah, before Rick went on his shooting rampage, he was outside the front entrance of the diner while Patrick and Sandra were inside. He was board so he went to search the pickup truck and a lurker was in it. Rick rolled poor defense against it and took 2 wounds. So perhaps that's what triggered his rampage

Lots of fun for me seeing others having fun with this game. Part of why I had ordered the 6 neoprene mats from Deep Cut Studios was for being able to demo it at this convention, as well as more versatility otherwise and for me at home. So it's extra rewarding to see it come to good use.
