Welcome to my secret message.

Since the print and play is out there and people are playing, we figured there's no reason to not use your experience and feedback to make any tweaks if necessary. We can only get so much playing in, and it's a tough game to simulate results for since it depends so much on human decision and intuition.

Here's what we would like from the results of your games:

1) How many players did you play with (if two player, how many characters did you use)?
2) Who won, zombies or humans?
3) How many of the winning side remained when they won?
4) What human character seemed most useful in the game?
5) What human character seemed like a steaming pile in the game?

We really appreciate the feedback! Thanks!

1. Player count = 4

2. Both

3. Depended on the game. We played about 10 games and it was split pretty evenly.

4. Nurse seemed too good in the first two games it popped up. Then there was the cop and cheerleader combo. That game was over in like 1 minute. Some characters just seem too good. If others are aware that you auto win if you throw rock or paper or something then you'll never get to do it....and we were drinking while playing and still couldn't pull it off. I honestly thought that there would be a little more meta-game here, but we switched over to Love Letter, then Hanabi, and it was just a whole other world of meta. Not that this was worse, just different. There was one game when I was the last survivor and my wife was the only zombie and she took me down in 3 quick RPS (yeah, she only needed to do two but we messed that up for some reason).

5. No character seemed bad. We had fun with all of them. If I were to suggest one thing that would be to take the opportunity to allow one character to auto win with rock or paper or whatever and use the other two cards for other fun abilities. Also, where Avalon has balancing cards this game could have a zombie or two that could "heal" other zombies. Sort of the anti-nurse. I know there is the scientist, but that's like doubling down on the zombie horde all at once.


Thoughts and Feelings:

It was fun. I printed it on cardstock and sleeved it in FFG Grey. I grabbed my daughter's bucket of colored pencils and we spent the first 40 minutes coloring the cards. It was great making all of the zombies have different outfits and someone said that they hoped the final product won't just have the same outfit on each zombie. We even talked about the whole Zombicide...Zomb'ivor thing. More art commissions, I know...

4 players probably wasn't the best. We are interested to try it with more, but that might be a month or two. Looking forward to seeing the progress of this game.


3.5 / 5 (Will play again, but room for improvement)

1) 2 Players with all the characters.

2) Zombies

3) Six

4) The combination of the scientist and the Cop was fairly deadly.

5) The Dog, but then he just got unlucky.

So far I have only played the one game, but will try it with more players later in the week and have some more 2 player games.

1) I've played it with: 2 Players, with 2,6,8 and 10 cards, and 3 players with 8 cards.

2) i think zombies have won 7 out of 10 games. (roughly)

3) not many been mostly close games (maybe 2)

I Can't really answer the remaining two questions. i didn't notice anyone being particularly bad. the scientist is pretty awesome.

1: 2 times with 2 players, with 12 characters both times.
2: Zombies dominated the first game, humans won the second.
3: 1st game: 11 zombies left. 2nd game: 3 humans left, 2 of which had 2 wounds - humans barely scraped by!
4: I liked the sniper most when I played humans.
5: I wouldn't say any of them were terrible, but surprisingly the Athlete wasn't as useful as one would think. That was probably just due to luck, though.

1) 2 times with 4 players, 4 cards.
2) Zombies won both times?
3) 1 and 3?
4) Winning ties seemed the best of the ones we saw.
5) None.

Seemed like a fun filler, have to play it more to see if it has any staying power.

1) How many players did you play with (if two player, how many characters did you use)?
Two players, two games with all characters each time.

2) Who won, zombies or humans?
Zombies won both times.

3) How many of the winning side remained when they won?
5 and 6. I think.

4) What human character seemed most useful in the game?
In the first game The Cop managed to beat down the Zombies pretty good towards the game before ending the game in defeat. In the second game, it was The Scientist - definitely. She kept the game going for the Human side.

5) What human character seemed like a steaming pile in the game?
Two games is not enough to decide. We didn't even play with The Biker yet so...

We really appreciate the feedback! Thanks!
No. Thank you for putting the PNP files out there!
