what is it?

 

Here is the blurb from the Osprey publishing website

Quote

Zona Alfa is a set of simple, fast-play skirmish rules for scavenging, exploring, and surviving in a near-future, post-apocalyptic Eastern European setting. Players take on the role of bandits, mercenaries, and military units fighting over the blasted Exclusion Zone and its abandoned artefacts. Customise your fighters with a variety of weapons and specialisms to create your ideal warband. With extended rules for campaigns, character progression, terrain, and environmental hazards, Zona Alfa contains all the tools required to engage in blistering firefights within the Exclusion Zone.

 

If you have seen the movie Stalker or read the book Roadside picnic you might get a feel for the theme

I own it and I have mixed feelings about it.

I am thinking about trying a solo game of it, since there's "wandering monsters" in it already. I do want to give it a try with some friends (when that can happen again). I like the idea of it but I'm not sure about the execution. What sort of crew are you thinking about running with?

I haven't played TNT but I think the rules there are tighter. Since ZA is a Osprey blue book, it's not going to have the depth and clear rules compared to TNT. I'll ask my friend who plays TNT and see if he can give me a quick summary.

Of course, if you're talking setting, there's quite a bit of difference. ::P:
