Zombicide: Invader - A Scifi game by CMoN

Recommended Posts

I like some of the rules for the new zombie types (something I plan on trying with the other versions of Zcide). 

 

My gaming group got all excited about it (not exactly sure why...) by they are throwing gobs of money at me to get in on it (I like the silliness of following Kickstarters...) so I'm in.  Overall, I'm kinda meh but the boys are excited so it will at least get some decent table time.  I just won't need to be bothered with painting any of it.  :poke:

I've convinced myself not to buy by using the money to buy a bunch of art books :) I have several games that barely get played as it is. And this one is tempting because I like the basic formula and they keep making better rules iterations every year. I watched a rules overview from Watch It Played on YouTube, go check it out if you want to get a feel for it (not sure if they linked it on the campaign page yet).

 

I like a LOT of the mechanics and the sci-fi setting. It was an easy pass until the video :)

I *really* like the Xenomoths, but that only tells me how much I don't care for the other sculpts. I still encourage anyone who wants Zombicide but doesn't have it to back Zombicide: Invaders.

 

With four seasons of Zombicide, I figure I can skip this one and look at other projects...!

They make me want to watch Pitch Black.

Is anyone here backing this? I am not interested in the game, but a gang of space children would be cool for Necromunda or Starfinder.

Typical.

The one survivor pack I'm interested in is kickstarter exclusive.

Exactly

That is kind of the point behind having exclusives as add ons.

It's also a move that can come out to bite companies, because it's a rather polarizing thing...  Doubly so if the only thing a person is interested is that particular set of minis. 

 

Most will not spend a bunch of money to get one small set.  I greatly prefer the companies that let you buy in small and then let you get precisely what you want in the pledge manager, without having the added baggage of "here, buy a game full of minis you don't like and don't care about and a game that will just collect dust due to being of no interest to you". 

 

It comes across as a rather brash "look at the shiny, but we don't care about you, only your wallet" kind of move.

      EDIT: link to the live kickstarter:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/hellboy-the-board-game/description

       

      The Hellboy board game will be a co-operative experience in which players face off against some of the comic’s most famous foes. Up to four people take control of iconic BRPD members, such as Hellboy, Abe Sapien and Roger the Homunculus, before exploring gothic locations and uncovering ancient artifacts.
      Set to make its Kickstarter debut in April 2018, the Hellboy board game will feature stunning, pre-assembled plastic miniatures that accurately capture the look and feel of Mike Mignola’s world famous comic series.
      “Hellboy has a great cast of characters, diverse locations and legendary monsters from the pages of folklore and myth,” said Ronnie Renton, Mantic CEO. “The comics provide a fantastic foundation on which to build an immersive, fun and fast-paced co-operative board game that will let players experience some of their favorite moments from the series.”

      Base colors done.  Need to do the flagstone tiles on their bases and then apply quickshader.  Very tired of being such a slow painter.

      Anyone have any info about the company? How able do you think they can pull off a KS? They've at least been in business for a long time?
