Hello,

I would like to add the dog companions to zombicide black plague, what do you think about that? Should I tweak them a little so that they are more balanced? What's your opinion about this expansion for the other zombicide seasons?

Cheers

I'd say chuck them in, I just bought them but have not added them yet as I like to paint everything up first. If you own Wulfsburg it will reduce the odds of getting some of the OP weapons

But some people said these companions were very OP as well in the other seasons

They are very OP, I'd try them as the rules are written so you can see what people mean and then tweak them to be less OP.

For Tweaking you might want to do some of the following
1. Remove low profile from their abilities (minor change)
2. Remove their bonus melee dice (major change)
3. Disallow the free move with their handler, so to move handler and 1 dog requires 2 actions, 1 for the handler and 1 for the dog (major change)

I'm sure you'll come up with some other ideas to mix and match.

Very well, thanks. I like to play the hardcore basic version of this game, but I also like, with more casual players, to tweak difficulty by adding more OP content. However, if I could balance the dog companions, I would really like them to permanently add to all of my games, as I love pets in general laugh

I use them in BP, but what I usually use them four is sacrificing if the survivor ends up being attacked. I also play with the Murder of Crows, so it kind of balanced out.

The kind who finds themselves hunted and finally ripped to pieces by the zombified horror that was once their best friend.
