Having read the book, I feel they made the game a little easier: You no longer get swamped when you open a door on orange, the survivours take more damage, you can actually select the difficulty with the cards and your designated shotgun wielder doesn't have to worry about hitting their teammates now.

That being said, I still think they're forcing those that have the first game to back for two reasons:

1. The upgrade pledge does not contain Phil, Elle and the kids. I'm fine with that since I have Base, Prison Outbreak, Parente, Smith and Dork Tower but there are those that only have Base only to find that there are no other packs around. This can be problematic if the mission requires 6 survivours with only five playable.

2. 2.0's Zombie deck contains new cards while there more pimpweapons. Again, this could prove problematic.

Sadly, it's like explaining to new players what made Zombicide great while telling vets 'here's some player cards for $40, use them to build a house' . Hopefully, they can do something about it, but then again, they're now CMON and not Cool Mini or Not, and I feel that they're going to screw things up again....

They are listed as end of November on Wayland and that ties in with the estimated release dates given at the open day. I think Element used 23 October as a place holder for everything and forgot to update it.

Washington supplement and no orange-haired abomination, what a missed opportunity.

I’m a bit surprised at the overall lack of homage minis so far, with all the old political thrillers. Who wouldn’t want a Tom Clancy-inspired survivor or a Dr. Strangelove inspired survivor (or zombie)?

It never ends well

The Trejo box is a cool idea. You get a hero, a special zombie, and let it hulk out with an abomination mode as well.

I hope we see more boxes like that. I'm sure we will.

Hopefully making it a special zombie means we're going to give up on the stupid "Zombivor" thing.

ASOIAF wise Adam Lovell (no idea what he does at CMON) posted this on the Facebook group after the game players friend Asmodee supposedly gave some UK retailers Baratheon and Targaryan starter set release dates of quarter 1 2020:

"Good afternoon, all!

Regarding the recent wave of odd release dates, I felt the need to jump in here and hopefully calm everyone down.

The release date windows we are seeing posted, especially regarding the Baratheon Starter Set, are simply not correct.

I am investigating the reasons for these erroneous statements from Asmodee and working with their team in the US to correct this.

The Baratheon Starter Set is set to release on November 18th.

While it is true that there were some slight production/logistics delays, it was a matter of a couple of weeks, not months.

Baratheons were originally planned to release on October 25th. They have shifted to November 18th. Targaryens have shifted from November 29th to January 10th. These dates have been confirmed with Asmodee as being achievable as Global English Language product release dates.

Again, we are working to find out where the information disconnect is occurring. I understand the frustration, but I assure you, these purported delays are not in line with reality."

Thanks appreciated Looks like January from the later post.

I doubt I will pick up another copy of Zombicide but look to adapt some of the better rules (same as the medieval/fantasy version)

Upgrade pledge gets 2nd edition spawn cards



When we reach $1200k we will add to the Nostalgic pledge only the full set of 40 Zombie spawn cards from the Zombicide: 2nd Edition Core Box. This way those backers will be able to spawn their 1st Edition standard zombie figures using the 2nd Edition updates:

Updated art and graphic design.
Optimized, easier to read cards with only one zombie type per card.
Overall each card spawns more zombies, since there are fewer spawn points used in 2nd Edition.
Zombie Rush cards, which sometimes activates Walkers and Fatties as soon as they spawn.


Add on for 2nd edition style spawn cards for season 1-3 zombie/dog/crow packs



For $8 this Optional Buy gives you 132 cards for all of the special 1st Edition types of Zombies and Companions, updated to 2nd Edition look and mechanics. As these will have the same card backs as the other 2nd Edition cards, you can just shuffle them into your decks. But not just that, like with the Stretch Goal above, these cards have been updated to 2nd Edition, with optimized organization, more spawns per card, and Zombie Rushes scattered around!

This set contains 2nd Edition cards for the following:

Toxic Zombies (Toxic City Mall)
Berserker Zombies (Prison Outbreak)
Skinner Zombies (Rue Morgue)
Seeker Zombies (Angry Neighbors)
Dogz
Crowz
VIP Zombies
Lost Zombivors
Dog Companions
Human Companions (Angry Neighbors)

Don't forget the new Abominations pack!



I'm glad they're really rolling with the urban legend idea as abominations.

The grey and the chupacabra are enough to actually drag my teen into finally playing. Except he wants to play as those two instead of harming them.

Do the different abominations actually do anything or do you just get to pick your favorite for aesthetic purposes?

They're selling the Turtles again and I still want them, but 50$+25$+x€ taxes/duty...still too much for PVC minis of this size *sobs in nerd*

The Abominations are tempting, but the Black Plague ones by Jason Hendricks were much more impressive sculpts, IMO, probably also way bigger for the same price (you could add more sets of them and I should have...).

The special Abos each have their own rule. Like the Croc for example, picks one survivor that he will pursuit, disregarding the noise and other survivors.

I have the results of the last chamber: You are a horrible person.
That's what it says: A horrible person...
We weren't even testing for that.

Given how volatile politics are in the US right now, it's good business sense. You don't want to potentially irritate a good chunk of your potential customers (while some people will laugh it off, others won't). Note how the President figure they're including doesn't look anything remotely close to any modern US presidents (I think the last time a US president had a beard while in office was in the 1800s).

Bearmanboar (the latest stretch goal), on the other hand, is a bit more indistinct. And the nature of the satire at play (since they're riffing on a South Park jab) means that it likely wouldn't irritate people even if the politician connected to it was still prominent.

Of course they could play balance for balance's sake and include an "Obamination" to go alongside the orange-haired one.

I mean the name just writes itself.

When confronted, claim that it's a dyslexic abomination?



On the political spoof side of things, I've seen far too many examples of people who are completely hypocritical in this regard. It's the old "Comedy is you falling into a hole and dying. Tragedy is me stubbing my toe." Just substitute their political representatives. Best to keep the more recent political figures out of the game entirely.

Nah the Mt. Rushmore guys should be abominations. We at least need a Washington with a tiny little wig and a Roosevelt with a BIG STICK.
