I've been following this game for awhile and lately gathering even more interest and maybe turning towards a purchase of the game. The coins seem to start garthering in my wallet.

Beforehand I could use some advice from fellow gamers. I've been watching playthroughs from

"Value of components" might not be easy to vote for, since there are different versions of the game. Boxed, unboxed, mounted map, paper map.
But I can tell you the counters are some of the best I've every seen. Lots of different shapes, thick, sturdy, awesome.

I could also recommend my review

I'll vote, totally, but I feel like I have a hard time evaluating this on your metrics here. Mostly, is the game fun? Yes and no - it's immensely frustrating and unfair and you're going to lose a lot, but that is part of the experience, the thrill of victory when you finally beat it.

DOTZ is decidedly one of my favorite solitaire games and the biggest reason I don't just fire up Netflix or play a video game when I have a couple hours set aside.

Personally, I love this game. I have the boxed version, and I love the look, feel, theme, and quality of all of the components. Super thick counters that are laser cut so you have some cool details like a bite out of the corner of the ZEDS counters, or the skull marker for the infection track. Some people don't care for the puzzle style mounted map (I really like it and use it for my plays) but in the boxed version you get the mounted and paper maps. I thinks it is a very fun game, and love the tension of it. It grabs you by the throat on turn one and never lets go. Never enough actions to do what needs to be done! I consider this a must have for any zombie fan!

Now I'm really starting to get itchy fingers to lay my hands on this game. Gotta make my feet shamble down to my local gamestore for a copy, or find webstore that have the game (not many in Europe)

I know, but danish custom & tax ($22), danish postal fee ($30) and VP's shipping cost ($32) - a grand total of $139 prevent my purchase from the source of this zed outbreakzombie
