Zombicide: Gear Up Review & Kickstarter Roundup.

We have a few favorite things in boardgames. We like co-operative games. We like fast gameplay and replay-ability. We love Zombicide, but we also love compact games with quick set up and breakdown.

When we discovered Zombicide: Gear Up we honestly didn’t think it was going to be very good. A Cool Mini or Not game with no miniatures? A Zombicide game with no modular map and scenario book? Flip and Write? How could this possibly work? It’s just not Zombicide!

We thought all these things and asked ourselves the questions, but I bought it anyway because it was inexpensive, and I was curious. I’m Glad we did! Holy cow! I continue to be amazed at how well CMON is able to adapt the Zombicide theme to new mechanics. The game is fast, fun, and absolutely feels like Zombicide.

We talk about Zombicide: Gear Up more in the episode and we also do a very quick round up of some the games on kickstarter and in retail that we think might be amazing!
