Hello

Please could someone enlighten me on what would be missing.

Basically what else would you require to play the episode 1 and 2 content? if you had patient 0 kickstarter, the episodes tile packs and the Apple App which has all the cards?

Thanks.

You would need the zombies and the markers, cars, and other tokens.

I think you are better of just buying the boxes if you want to get into it. And buying them on kickstarter for season 3 is good deal i.m.o.

You wouldn't have any berserker or toxic zombies.

So whats to stop you from representing these things with other figures and other tokens? The reason I ask is that you would have all the core mechanics to do so at the expense that the replacement figures\tokens\etc are not the originals?

Nothing really you could use the different types of zombies not found in season 1 or 2 as toxic or berserker. As for the tokens You would likely have most/all of the tokens you might need. You might be missing some of the colored spawn/objective/door tokens (Not sure really I dont know if s3 comes with these) but that could be remedied by buying the $15 plastic tokens...Or just using normal ones with the knowledge that they are supposed to be a different color.

The tile pack comes with the token board (at least the season 1 set), doesn't it?

You should be able to pretty much play a "comparable version of the game by doing this.

I would recomend using the money you are planning on spending on tile packs and app upgrades to buy season 1, so you have the best complete game experience without having to wait until the end of the year.

Check online sales, ebay auctions and BGG auctions, and you should be able to get season 1 around $50. Online and secondhand Zombicide prices probably will start dropping after the kickstarter ends.

You could use S3's survivors, S3's tokens (3d tokens have the mall and prison doors, etc, tile packs for S1 and S2, download the rules/scenarios online, but:


You would need the zombies (zombie packs are around $20 each, 3 of each to have enough to play), SPAWN DECKS, no real way to get these unless you buy the game.

Uou could forego the zombies/spawn decks and play the scenarios with skinner zombies from season 3... but it would not be the same at all.

Nicholas are you saying that there are more spawn cards that are not included in the free application that you can download from there website? Well season 1 cards are free, the others have a small cost. Also I read that someplayers swap out zombies with a dice using its value to represent the number in that area to reduce clutter, surley this method would leave you with enough zombies to go around.

Actually with the iPad app, you have all the spawn cards for S1, PO, TCM and Zombie Dogs, as well as all the equipment cards from S1, PO, and TCM for around $10. Just need zombies or proxies for the zombies.

Why not use the skinner deck and zombies, but treat them as regulars?

I just bought the Season 1 tileset and used my DOOM boardgame minis as proxies. The tileset comes (ao) with doors, spawn tokens, cars and objectives. Played two scenarios solo using the app and that works OK. I used the flat cardboard square health tokens from the DOOM game and put them under the zombies if I spawned more zombies in a zone than I had in the DOOM box. Because I do not have the proper survivor minis and their dashboards, who-is-who and when they act get a bit complicated. I backed KS Season 3 so that problem will go away once I receive the 20 (!) survivors and I can use the skinners as normal zombies.
