I bought the 2. edition of "All things Zombie" some time ago and while I found it very interesting, I also found it too fiddly for me to even ever really try it, mostly because I don´t really know how to handle terrain and such in practice.
So the boardgame seems to be the perfect fix for me.
I bought it directly form Ed back then, will this be possible again this time?
Bernd, the boardgame is I guess still a little ways down the road. ATZ 2.0 really doesn't need much in the way of terrain for a fun game. I played one with nothing but a pile of dice to represent a barrier and two toy trucks to show the vehicles used for the event.
I know it might be daunting at the start but just sit with the ruleset open and follow it step by step. Don't worry about rolling characters or anything. Just take one fella or lass and give them a Rep 5 (that's kinda like their level in RPG style) and then sit him or her down in the middle of the street. Give them a gun to shoot with and then stick 2 or 3 zombies down at the other end of the street. For the moment assume that your character is familiar with life after the apocalypse... and shoot at a zombie. Follow the rules as set-up. It's really easy and you can go further from there.
Oh and sorry for ignoring the direct question... Mark Walker (I think it's right) is selling this game from Lock and Load (again I believe that's the right name). You'd have to order it from their website. If you emailed them with a query about a money order or such I'm sure something could be arranged.
