I just read about that on the latest VPG update..oh man I'm so stoked for that. As you may remember I am not a fan of the 2nd ed map and I completely look forward to getting my hands on this new version, and for free no less. I plan to put in my request when it comes time to order the new Zed expansion. Hopefully the map will be ready by then.

Yes, I would hope it is good to go with the new expansion. Great idea, loving VPG more and more.

The idea is to make sure the alternate map will be fully compatible with the new expansion And the original game.

Correct, and we're playtesting them all together right now. :-)

Unlikely, I should think. Are any other C3i games posted on BGG? I don't think so...

Alan, is this something we can request now with a new order or do we have to wait until you give us the green light? (I ask cuz I am eyeing Cruel Necessity for my next order . . . .)

Thanks for the ongoing awesome work!

Are you mixing this thread about the new Dawn of the Zeds map up with the one where we talked about the C3i version of Soviet Dawn or am I misunderstanding something (I haven't heard of any C3i involvement in DotZ)?

Oops, yes! Too many threads!!

YES, the new Zeds map will be posted everywhere (it's free, after all).

And NO, you can't request it yet as we'd be holding your order for some time while we finished testing this, getting all the art and cut settings right for the new map, etc. So, you'll need to await the GREEN LIGHT from us before requesting the new Zeds map. Sorry...

Thanks, that sounds great. I'm considering getting a nice version of Tim Allen's board made, when it's done. This is one of those games where I'm willing to splash some extra cash, and I like his board much better than the old one.

And by the way, I think it's a classy gesture on your part to give the new board away for free.

The new map is wonderful! Really gives the story that small town under siege' feel of the first version, which I loved. kudos to VPG for continuing to support and improve this already great game.

Well, I guess I can talk myself into ordering another game (or two, or three, or four, or... ) to get it.

Is that map only when ordering directly, or can also work with ordering with somebody else FROM vpg?

As in, i ordered something from nws, but it shipped directly from vpg

I have a related question.

I'm french and will buy DotZ 2nd Ed. in a few weeks from a french shop.

So, can the shop get me the new map or do i have to buy from VPG's website ?

It doesn't matter WHERE you bought ZEDS. To get a free map (ONCE THEY ARE AVAILABLE, WHICH IS "NOT YET"), you need to place an order for a game directly with VPG, and we'll include it in your parcel.

We will also make it available as a free download on BGG and our own web site, so you can always just make a "print and play" version.

We just sent TIM ALLEN, the artist, our list of official corrections. That will keep him busy for a few days I suspect.

This means I can forget about making a new map and spend more time playing the game. That new prototype looks great. Thanks, VPG!

The only thing I've seen on the new map that I don't like is the big red X in town center. I think it cheapens the whole visual mood the map conveys. Do you really need an X marks the spot? That's just leftovers from that last map that I didn't care for much.

I like a map the represents the world I'm playing in, not a map that well uh..is trying to be an actual map. The "X marks the spot" symbol detracts from the emersion, making it appear as a map and not as a game world that I'm involved with. Just my 2 cents.

Other than that minor tidbit I love the look of the new map.

Love the new map!

So can't order it by itself? I'd be willing to pay shipping. I'd also love to get an updated rulebook (I have 1.0) for the game with all errata and updates (I'd pay the cost of the new rulebook).

This possible?

*edit* Forget that last line. Just rechecked the rules updates, it appears the only thing is that Carter can't enter the tunnel.
