Planning to get this game but am not sure which season should I settle down (let's say I just wanna get one base game). Season 3 attracts me solely because of the 12 players capability (my gaming group can be fairly large at times), but some people say this game would be easy with more than 6 players?

Most of the season 3 missions are still designed for 4-6 survivors. The 12 player thing is for team play. I seem to remember there are only a couple of team missions in the book, although there's nothing stopping you crafting your own.

Season 3 is still the best entry point in my opinion though, particularly if you only intend to get one core box.

Definitely not season 2. Everything else is ok.

Being an owner of Season 3 and Black Plague, I would say Black Plague is by far the best version currently available.

If you're after the modern day setting, though, then I would recommend you play which ever season you go for with Black Plague's rules in mind (especially regarding range attacks).

I think Season 1's base missions are a bit bland, but there are lots more on zombicide.com that use Season 1.

I think you get the best bang for your buck by buying Season 3 and then the Season 1 tile set, which will allow you to play most of the season 1 missions. The only missions you won't be able to play are those that require the use of food cards, as the season 3 equipment deck doesn't have any.

Season 3 also has the best rulebook. It is completely fleshed out, with all the parts overlooked in the Season 1 rulebook spelled out.

I remember when the general held opinion was to:

Get Season 2 and the tiles for Season 1 and print off the player made Season 1 missions from their website.

Has this changed now ?

btw: this was from wayyyyyy back so no doubt has changed, but I thought I'd ask.
