If anyone thinks that ghosts are underpowered, try smashing them up with zombies. You basically have a discarding engine to power up your zombie discard pile. It's nawesome (nasty + awesome)!

We did think this while playing the other day, but it just doesn't feel as fun to have a pair that doesn't sound awesome...I mean they're both just undead...

Has nothing on Ninja Dinosaurs where the names concerned! ;P

Hello,

I haven't got the extension yet but I am indeed a bit worried that Zombies/Ghosts are going to be a bit overpowered, in the same vein as Zombies-Robots.
That would be a pity because this would render "serious" 2-player games a bit stale,i.e., 1P chooses zombies and then 2P is more or less forced to choose either Robots or Ghosts (probably Robots I guess).

This is why when we play 2 player, its random selections, instead of a draft.

I am usually against random selection as it can lead to totally unbalanced match-ups!

Like Wizards+Robots? Considering that there's only two Action cards in the Robot deck, and the wizards have a couple of "play more action" Action cards... I quickly ran out of Actions to play but kept shuffling back robots into my draw pile, so I never got to reshuffle my entire discard pile into a new draw pile... Was a weird session..

I had the opportunity to try this combo this week-end and I was quite underwhelmed.
Admittedly, I has a terrible 1st hand with a single minion, 2 actions that played with the discard pile, one that was usable when I only had 2 cards in hand and one that can only played when it's my last card.
Then I didn't draw a minion in my next 2 cards, and overall, I mostcly drew actions or 2-power minions.
Still, I am not sure it is that powerful, and in any case, much less powerful than Zombies-Robots, which, IMO, is the most powerful combo in the game for a simple reason: the only drawback of Zombies is that they are slow to set-up. Robots allow for explosive starts that can compensate the relative slowness of Zombies and when the discard pile starts to fill up, the rest is easy...
