Massive Darkness

Recommended Posts

I finally got mine on Saturday, which was cool!  I've been too busy to do more than read through the rulebook, but oh... well.  Hopefully I'll get to play it soon.

 

I didn't really get a lot of add-ons (Ratlings, extra dice, Zombicide crossover pack) but it's still a *lot* of plastic to look though.  Wow.

Got an impromptu 3-player game in today since our D&D session fell through.

 

Overall, it was enjoyable. It will hit the table again.

 

I am not sure that we played 100% correctly, but the rules were simple enough we felt fairly proficient with just opening the box and one guy reading the rules while the rest setup and shuffled stuff.

 

It was pretty easy on the difficulty scale. The only thing that gave pause was the giant spider that spawned at level 1 in the tutorial for us. It knocked two chars gets down to 1 health each before being dropped. After that, gear seemed to be the thing to have us tearing through stuff. 

 

We played the tutorial and then played one of the missions a few further along (it had 4 levels).

Played the first scenario with 6 players last night. 3+ hours in and we called it as we all had to be into work early. We got to level 3 of 4. I thought we were gonners a couple times, but I think our odds were pretty good that we would have achieved the scenario objectives by the end. 

 

Only one person wasn't two interested by the end...everyone else would have loved to kept playing if we would have had time.  We will schedule another game where Massive Darkness will be the first game we start with.  I am sure we messed some rules (e.g. i forgot all about card transmuting), but over all consensus was it was a lot of fun.

The minis look great... I have seen maybe 4 unboxing videos and there are a couple painting threads already. I am inpatient but also excited....

It even got me painting minis again, hah!

I know you have all been waiting and concerned with one question. Did Bill get his Massive Darkness? Well the answer is still no... but! I did get a shipping notice. So sooooooooooon! yes. I will get them soon. Then maybe the voices will stop.... soon!

The voices don't stop exactly... they suddenly start clamoring for paint and to play all at the same time... 

I had to put mine in mini-timeout (behind a closed door) so that I could focus on what has to be done this month...

Just played a quick solo game.  Interesting - a couple tight moments, but mostly it was easy enough.  Then again, you don't want to bloody everyone's nose during the tutorial.  I may see if I can get my daughter to play.  Someone did up a character card for the unicorn, which she would have fun playing, I think.

Yeah I was hoping to find a blank template to convert some of the BP exclusive figures.  I mean the massive darkness without a not-batmat?

Had some friends over so got to teach the game to someone else again.  We skipped the tutorial and made it through about half of Scorched Earth.  We chose to go with 1 hero each, so our group of 4 played differently than my wife and I's group of 6.  Easier to keep track of just one hero though.  Event cards start becoming very interesting.  It was also interesting to play with people that had not done a co-op game before.  

We were ready for zone 3 when we spawned a hellhound at the entrance and then realized what time it was (one of our guests was a nursing student and she had a test this morning).  Modern technology made it easy to "save" the board state, I then packed up everybody's equipment and had everything put away in about 25 minutes.  

Getting the first set of dwarven warriros with plate mail was interesting with starting equipment.  We also saw our first agent and first roaming monsters, so it was good fun for everyone.

OMG!  Mine finally arrived yesterday.  No shipping notice or anything.  Haven't had time to catalog it, but I'll do that tonight.

      I have the single deckers, and really like them. After failing to fund last time, the designer hit some trade shows, lined up some other financing, and has relaunched the campaign for double decker caddies. I think these would be great for games like Gloom that with the expansions quickly outgrow their original boxes.

      About this project
       
       Trio is born from my videogames experience, is born by my idea to create a variegated set that include different types of subjects including animals, armours, textiles and skins of various types. The busts of this campaign are all handsculpted by Alberto Acquaviva and me and all are in resin cast. Through this busts i want to show you how the wisdom can be beautiful and delicate, how the courage can be aggressive in front of a trial and how the power can corrupt your face...and your soul. All this collection busts are composed just by one piece except Heero, the courage that is composed by three parts. The collection has been conceived to be easy to assemple and ready from the unboxing to be painted. Is a good trial for both beginners and veteran painters. You can play with colors, lighting effects or freehanding on open surfaces, on little details or animal mantles. So,I hope my project excites and involves you like it did to me. Thanks for reading. Below you'll find the description of all characters, their size and more details on this campaign.
      Regarding the shipping costs there are two price ranges.  
      First range: shipping up to 4 figures, 5€  
      Second range: 5+ figures,10€ However be informed that the more models you'll purchase, the bigger will be the discount applied, so your shipping will be anyway cheap.

      Looks like plastic mecha are all the rage. Between Robotech and CAV I'm going to be up to my ears in mecha...but the idea of gears that don't cost an arm and a leg may be too much to resist. Don't know that I'll go big on this one, probably one of the army boxes or a $1 pledge with some add-ons. These aren't likely to be used with their game so I'm not looking to get more than handful, definitely not more than say, 20.
       
      Says starting in October, not sure when though.
