I want to play Mice and Mystics! But I also want to play Manhattan Project. And Spartacus. And Geistesblitze. :/

So many games, so little time. I'll try to be there for 7 tomorrow and cram in as much as possible.

Think Evan said he was keen... so I'll bring it down... Mike D can't make it but has passed on the game to me...

Anyone else? Guess we want 4 or 6?

Another great, if slightly warm evening. Particularly enjoyed Cyclades (though that is probably because I won! :-))

Good fun, way too hot though Smile

I enjoyed both games I got in - even if Bunglebogs ninja'd the Cyclades win from under me Smile That one has gone on the old amazon wishlist!

Zombicide was fun, really enjoyed it, although I hope the other scenarios add some variety else I could see charging around just killing zombies getting old relatively quickly. We could probably have done better on the whole 'working as a team' thing since all deaths were probably avoidable if we'd been a bit more careful...

Still, we beat the game at least Very Happy

"The 24hrs Race of Zombicity"

Essentially someone has to max out their XP board (43 I think from memory?) between kills and recoverable XP dumps.

Turns out the cars are *really* useful for ratcheting that number up fast Smile

Yes, a very enjoyable evening.  I just came on here to ask if we won the Zombicide, as it wasn't looking very likely when I left.  I last saw your car hurtling into a horde of zombies. I'm glad it worked out well.

Hopefully, see you all next week.

Chris.

That's one of the easiest scenarios I think. The cars a quite over-powered. I hope you were remembering that if you shoot from inside a car you hit the people in the car first. That kind of limits them...

We were going with driving back and forth over the zombies Smile

At one point there were three of us in the car swapping around and causing trouble

Gav's sniper rifle helped as well! I would agree, once we formed a strategy the scenario seemed really easy and we rattled the experience up very quickly.

I was having a read through the rules and we did mess a couple of things up though:

1) Zombie manhole spawns - this one is needelssly complex in my view but from what I'm reading zombies spawn from manholes on the same *tile* as a player not the same zone - which theoretically means that a player could be in a zone with a manhole but nothing spawns by virtue of him standing on the other side of the road? (page 14 on the rules PDF)

2) Changing driver is two actions: Firstly the driver has to spend an action point to vacate the seat in favour of one of the other seats and then another player has to spend an action to move to the driver seat. (page 11 on the rules PDF)

Not sure how much difference it would have made in the grand scheme of things, other than slowing us down some but still, interesting to know.

The manholes spawn per tile based on which zone you are in so if you are on a crossroads you spawn for 4 tiles
