They had more games than I could count stacked up at Gencon. Though not sure if it has made it into public stores yet.

Dunno when the UK release will be, however, I'm 99% certain you won't be able to get the Kickstarter abomination pack, other from ebay, or a store that got in on the Kickstarter.

(I may have one, or possibly two, going up on ebay, when they arrive, though, by the way...)

The Abomination pack from the Kickstarter included the main game, extra figures of the zombies, and some KS exclusive survivor figures. You could also add on some extras figures but at extra cost. I believe the extra figures will be available for purchase as will the main game.

Here is a link to the Kickstarter with the details: Zombicide

You could always just wait until it's retail release date (late September?).

I will be selling at least 1 copy of the game, and what I'm going to term an 'abomination pack lite' - which will be the extra zombies, t-shirt, lithograph, and 3 sets of promo dice (black, white, and glow-in-the-dark), but not the 3 promo survivors Nick, El Cholo, and Dave.

I'll be doing it this way because I want to turn it around quickly, and the rest of the promo and extra survivors (Chaz, Cardboard Tube Samurai, Troy, Marvin, Eva, Ivy, Ivy, and Claudia) and all (10) respective Zombie versions aren't available yet.

When I have the rest of the survivors, and their zombie counterparts, then I will be selling them in pairs (Survivor + Zombie Counterpart).

The Abomination pack that was part of the Kickstarter, I believe, will not be available through general retailers. The main game, some of the extra survivors (none of the KS only ones) and their zombie counter-part, and miscellaneous items (like extra map boards and dice) should be available through general retailers.

The KS only items which I believe are some of the survivors and their zombie counterpart will not be available except through eBay, BGG auction or other similar non-traditional means.

Edit - I could be wrong about the Abomination set being available through retailers but at GenCon I believe they were only selling the main game and none of the KS only stuff. They did have a raffle for several Abomination sets which if you bought the game at the Con you would be entered to win the upgrade.

No, the Abomination pack was a Kickstarter promotion, it won't be available for the general public, other than perhaps special prizes at cons and such.

As I understand it, the "Abomination pack" will never be commercially available beyond Kickstarter (and secondary market; e.g. ebay). Some of the promo characters will be available at conventions, etc. I vaguely remember reading that the duplicate tile pack will be commercially available (although it's usefulness eludes me at the moment).

It would probably be cheaper to buy two copies of Zombicide upon its release than to buy Zombicide + Abomination pack on the secondary market. The only things you'll be missing are 3 promo characters (which can probably be purchased on ebay), a T-shirt, a "signed" (with an "X") poster, and some custom dice (where the custom symbols don't mean anything in-game). And you'll end up with even more zombie miniatures than the Abomination backers received (along with a second set of tiles, tokens, etc).

I don't think any of the survivors were identified as KS exclusives. IMO, they will all eventually be available. zombie

It's not 100% clear, at this point, but, probably not.

In the Kickstarter description, they mention 3 promo survivors and their zombie counter-parts. I think I also saw something where they are listed as exclusive. I read that as only for those who fund through Kickstarter but again I can be wrong. It wasn't 100% clear.

It was stated by CMON that some (can't recall off the top of my head exactly which ones, and CBA to trawl through all the comments on the Kickstarter comments page), and possibly all, of the 'promo' and 'extra' survivors, and their zombie counterparts, will definitely not be available on general release. They will be making a 'batch' which is likely to be larger than the number required to fulfil the Kickstarter rewards, and any extras will be used as competition prizes/promos at cons and shows, but, once they're gone they're gone.

The only definite answer anyone (other than someone in either CMON or GG (and they're not talking)) can give, at this stage, is "We don't know".
