Wow, that was a terrible lead in, but its actually true. Zombicide is a minis-based zombie board game that is currently exploding Kickstarter (from a board game sense), and it is coming to a close. With under 2 hours left, the game has raised over $730,000 (its goal was $20,000 - 3,656% successful so far!). If you're a fan of zombies, this is definitely worth taking a look at (and you best hurry)
All the details to what you can get after the break. But hurry, you're wasting time!
The game is a cooperative senario based game where as you play you improve your character, and the more kills you cause the larger the oncoming onslaught of zombies become. Game mechanics are fairly straight forward (you have so many moves and so many actions, each character has unique actions to them) and the variety of zombie types range from Romero walkers to 28 days later runners to L4D boomers and the like.
The game is going to retail for around $90, and has a crazy ton of minis in the box (71 to be exact), but during the KS campaign you can get this for $75. However, at the $100 level you currently get this (thanks to stretch goals being met and surpassed massively):
|Say "What" again. Go on...|
The game is slated for a Q4 2012 release with a lot of the extras being released Q2 2013 to come out with the expansion, but to get in on the ground floor of what may be an epic game for $100 is pretty fantastic. Even if the game sucks, the minis alone are worth it and they are beautifully sculpted. So go check it out stat!
