    Ugh... ogres. Why? I want them! My poor wallet. T__T
  4. Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cmon/zombicide-green-horde/ Zombicide: Green Horde is a cooperative board game for 1 to 6 players that is both a standalone game, and fully compatible with Zombicide: Black Plague and its expansions! Players control a party of medieval fantasy survivors as they fight to rid the land of an invasion of zombie orcs controlled by the game itself. Survivors find weapons, learn spells, battle zombies, and gain experience. The more experienced they get, the more powerful they become, but the more zombies rise to face them! Zombicide: Green Horde expands upon the fantasy universe introduced by Zombicide: Black Plague. A new group of Survivors of different species will bring their unique expertise to the fight against the undead armies threatening to crush the kingdom. As they explore the ravaged villages, Survivors gather all manner of equipment to aid them in their quest. From swords, hammers, bows, and armor, to magic scrolls and flasks of dragon bile! All of that equipment is neatly displayed in each Survivor's plastic dashboard, with appropriate slots for each type of card, as well as trackers for wounds, skills, and experience. Some of the equipment in Green Horde have a special synergy with other equipment. For example, carrying a Norse Sword is certainly not bad at all. However, it will become a lot more effective, rolling 2 extra dice, if you also manage to equip a Norse Shield on your other hand! The Survivors will need to be well prepared to deal with the new menace they'll face: Orc Zombies! When the black plague hit the orc tribes, it spread like wildfire, creating a swarm of undead brutes. Orc zombies are stronger than their human counterparts, being able to tear apart the most resilient of Survivors. An attack from an Orc Walker deals 2 wounds, while the attack of an Orc Fatty or Abomination deals a whopping 3 wounds! The little Goblin Runners only deal 1 Wound per attack, but they are fast and numerous, so don't judge them by their size. And finally, while the Orc Necromancer is not very deadly in itself, you'll want to eliminate it quickly, as its powers bring even more Orc Zombies onto the board. As lethal as the Orc Zombies are, probably the scariest thing about them is their ability to launch surprise attacks by unleashing an overwhelming horde against the Survivors. Every time an Orc Zombie spawn card is drawn, one extra zombie of the indicated type is added to a "Horde area" outside the board. As the game progresses, players will watch with dread as the looming threat of the horde grows in number, just out of sight. When an "Enter the Horde!" card is drawn, all miniatures in the Horde area are placed in the spawning Zone. The situation just got a lot more dire! To give them a fighting chance against the green horde, the Survivors have gotten their hands on a mighty trebuchet! This ingenious catapult can hurl all manner of payloads across great distances, striking powerful blows against the undead invaders. This siege engine is extremely difficult to operate, requiring 3 actions to either push it to the next zone, or to fire it against the enemy. However, the Trebuchet can fire at any zone in the game (and even against the looming Horde), with no regard to distance or line of sight. Survivors can also choose among 3 types of ammunition to use, from a scattershot that can decimate a swarm of Walkers, to a boulder that can kill an Abomination if aimed right! Zombicide: Green Horde expands the action into the outskirts of the kingdom, where the villages blend with picturesque crops and hedges. The crops have withered in the abandoned villages, and some streets are flooded with the irrigation water, but these features create new challenges and opportunities for Survivors. Waterhole zones slow down the Survivors (and douse Dragon Fire), but some of their edges are steep ledges that Zombies are unable to climb out of, forcing them to make a detour while you run for safety. Hedges block line of sight, but not movement, allowing Survivors to play a dangerous game of hide and seek with the Zombies (however, you never know what might be waiting on the other side of a hedge).

    Lidless Eye Hobbies: Rising Sun Clans

    Still have to open mine. I noticed a few have some differences from each other. Is that a personal choice? Or something in the rules to indicate a different unit type?

    That is a lovely conversion. Thank you for the step by step instructions.
  8. Poor golem. Ready to be sacrificed to the giant monkey. Didn't know the great monkey was interested in metal. =P
  9. I have picked up two core sets from each project. In this case it will be different... three core sets! I really like monsters and non adventurers for the core sets. I need more monsters not more of the same adventurer unless I was giving them away.

    I have all my stuff @Darsc Zacal. I don't know if anyone else backed other than yourself. Possible to close.
  12. @Talae, have you looked into a game or heard of a game called Survive Escape from Atlantis? There's a remake of the original and it's pretty entertaining for kids and adults.
  13. Imhotep is another great game to introduce people to gaming.

    Those are nice, but I'm hoping they aren't going to start pulling a confrontation move.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I ran a d&d game for a group of friends where the room after the front door contained nothing but a closed stone door and a small raised plaque. If you touch the plaque, the front door closes and runes glow and start changing in shape on the plaque. This caused them to panic and they struggled for several minutes to figure it out. Their characters took turns touching the plaque as they attacked the door with weapons and magic. They attempted trap checks and arcana checks and failed some knowledge checks. After wasting spells and exhausting resources, they gave up and let the runes run their course. The stone door slid open after the sequence completed. With all the commotion and wasted time, they allowed the enemies to fortify, plan, and surround them. I had a lovely time, but boy were they mad about the insignificance of the room. ^.^
