Zombicide Black Plague with pitch forks and torches

So a while ago I posted an article detailing my first foray into Zombicide, since then I have only managed to play one further game, which was the first scenario to use 6 players. If you can remember (or have just read the article) you will see I was a bit scathing of Samson and his Mystical Missing Skills with his axes, lo and behold even with someone else controlling Samson he was still useless!

Project Z Review 3 of 3, The Game!

I finally got a game of this the other night, and the game played out slowly. There were a few teething problems and misprinted cards to get over but after we got passed that we were able to get the game going.

Now one thing I do like about Project Z is that it’s slightly different from most Zombie games in that you are facing off against another human player. It’s not just everyone Vs the zombies. The set up is that you are two gangs facing off to retrieve items from a street corner or warehouse and the zombies come along and get in the way. So not only do you have to worry about the other gang you have the Z guys to deal with too.
