I’ll have Zombies with extra Zombie sauce and a side of Zomb, please.
I absolutely do not want to read in to this fact, nor pretend that it is indicative of some larger trend that extends anywhere beyond my fingers as I type these words. No. …but I do find it rather odd that in these last months I have played at least 8 games of Zombicide to every 1 game of 40K.
There is a time when I would not have thought such a thing possible. And yet there it is.
And please do not get the wrong impression. I really dig what is happening with 6th edition, a lot. It’s just that my attention is drawn in a myriad of directions right now and I have been enjoying other games, a lot.
And so these zombie fellas have been getting the lion’s share of attention for some time now. Unlike the first batch, these guys have been treated to a smattering of my blood recipe (here and here) to help make them suitably sinister as opposed to just decayed. It is still very much a “cheap and cheerful” treatment for these guys, but one that adds (for me, anyway, I have a thing about playing unpainted minis) an utterly necessary dose of glory to the gaming experience.
As for the heroic survivors. Well, their fortunes have turned a bit. We came out to a roaring start, but the zombies have been making a nuisance of themselves more and more in recent games. Have we grown overconfident? Are the undead numbers telling? Is the game just quirky like that? Yes on all counts.
