The first leg of the Christmas holidays is over, food, drinks and gifts... but NOT the gaming activities. On Sunday, I organised with my two kids and some of their friends a Zombie game.
A terrific and compexity-free game (my son is only 12 years old), Zombies come with two large bags of male and female plastic zombies and six humans. Each player owns a rifle and has three lives. In each turn, each player displays a street segment from a deck where he may eventually find ammo and additional lives, as well as (of course!) zombies. The game ends when the helicopter field is displayed and one player is safe on board or when one player kills 25 creatures.
The four kids were hooked in the game from the very beginning and quickly developed some basic tactics to survive the zombie horde, reaching implict alliances to reduce the advantage of the leading player each time, etc. ...I've been stromgly requested to organise another game soon!
But this is not all. On Thursday evening a large gathering at the club of the Lardie section to play a major engagement with the WWI rules "Through the Mud and the Blood". We will have cavalry, tanks, artillery... and stosstruppen of course!!. I've been painting some new figures for the game:
