Are the campaigns and scenarios in ATZ: Better Than Zed playable with this miniatures game, or are they mutually exclusive games?

(different publishers = different games completely?)

I'm pretty sure Better Than Zed is an expansion for the miniatures game, All Things Zombie, and not the board game that you've just posted to.

"Better Than Zed" is kind of the second edition to the original ATZ rules. It is really quite cool, and contains an extended campaign that takes your character from the very beginning of the zombie outbreak to the point where the zombies have taken over.

There is no knowing whether the campaign will work with ATZ: The Boardgame until it is released, or at least until we get to see the rules.

From what we have been told, the boardgame has ALMOST an identical ruleset, with just some minor tweaks to let it fit on the board. If that is so, then the campaign should work just fine. I can't imagine them not including it in the rules anyway. It is actually quite simple, and just takes a few pages.

I suspect the two wouldn't be directly compatible, but Ed's miniatures rules are so open for tweaking and house ruling (with his blessing and expectation) that it shouldn't be too difficult to fuse some of the campaign rules from Zed onto the upcoming boardgame.

While I have obviously not seen ATZ: The Boardgame yet, I suspect you will be able to "port" over items from Better Dead Than Zed and Haven to the boardgame with a little work. zombie

Yes they are compatible. I plan on using the board game instead of minis for some games and mixing and matching the rules. Really not much to it.
