Zombicide


Zombicide, the fan-favorite cooperative zombie survival game, is getting itself a new edition. CMON has launched their Kickstarter campaig to bring it to your tabletops. It's all the zombie-killing action you've come to live, updated with all the cool advancements made over all the different versions of the game that've come out since its original release.

Zombicide 2nd Edition is rapidly approaching. But what about all the people that have been collecting the game for over 7 years now? What will happen to their collections? In this article, CMON talks about the upgrade kit that will be available, letting people bring their old games into the new system.

Zombicide 2nd Edition is coming to Kickstarter next week. As with any edition change for a game, players are wondering, "Ok, what changed?" You've got a game and you love it, so you want to know if the things you love have been changed. Well, to allay fears, CMON has posted up an article talking about just what sorts of things have been updated in this new version.

As they get closer to the launch of the Zombicide 2nd Edition Kickstarter, CMON has been looking back on Zombicides of the past and seen what each of those sets brought to the game. In this final installment, we head to the deep reaches of space and planet PK-L7, where the intrepid Survivors face off against an otherworldly foe in Zombicide: Invader.

CMON has launched their Kickstarter campaign to add new digital assets like soundtracks and art books for some of their previous games. They're HATE, Zombicide: Green Horde, and Rising Sun. You can also pledge for those games as well. Well, you could've if they hadn't all sold out super-quickly, anyway. But you can still possibly sign up for the pledge manager and get some stuff there.

CMON is launching a new Kickstarter campaign this week. They're going to be adding new digital art books and soundtracks for Zombicide: Green Horde, HATE, and Rising Sun. But, along with just adding those, backers will be able to pledge for those Kickstarter bundles themselves (as though they've gone back in time to when those campaigns were running, you see). So, if you missed out on your chance before, you'll have a new chance to back them now.

After the initial 3 seasons of Zombicide, the folks over at CMON decided to take the franchise to a different location. The previous games had been set in a modern world, but what if the zombie infestation happened in a medieval fantasy setting? Thus, Zombicide: Black Plague was born. Continuing their look through the history of Zombicide, they posted an article about this ye olden times version.

Zombicide 2nd Edition is coming to Kickstarter very soon. But where did it all begin? I actually remember being here on TGN when that first campaign launched. Back then, we weren't 100% sure how we were going to do coverage for these new-fangled "crowd funding" things. Different times, for sure. In this first part of the series, CMON looks back at the first 3 seasons of Zombicide and how the game changed during that time.

The latest batch of releases are available from CMON. There's Foodies, where players own their own food court and must fill it with fabulous food stalls. There's Zombicide: Invader, where players are looking to survive the alien infestation on PK-L7. And then there's a pair of Hero Boxes for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game, one each for Free Folk and Night's Watch.

There's a big announcement for you. Zombicide, one of the most-loved cooperative zombie survival games, is getting a new edition. Taking all the innovations that CMON and Guillotine have been working on over the past 7 years, the original version is getting an update.

In the deep recesses of space, on the planet PK-L7, the future of humanity's energy needs was met with Xenium. However, the passive aliens that also inhabited the planet suddenly turned murderous. Now, it's a race to get off the planet for the Survivors in Zombicide: Invader, the latest incarnation of the game. You can pick up your copies in just a couple days.

Yes, you read that right. IDW and CMON are teaming up to bring you Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for Zombicide. They had some issues when the sets first were announced, but things look like they're working better now. You can head over and pre-order your sets now.

CMON and Xplored have announced the Teburu Gaming System. It's a new evolution in gaming technology that melds the electronic and the physical in new ways. Utilizing an electronic board and RFID chips in miniatures, as well as smart dice, players' actions and rolls are automatically registered by the gaming system and displayed on the main screen while player's individual smart devices show a player's personal dashboard.

A whole new crop of releases are available from CMON. They've got Gizmos, a family-friendly board game. Then there's a pair of Zombicide: Green Horde expansions in the form of Friends and Foes and No Rest for the Wicked. Topping things off, there's the Stark vs Lannisters 2-player Starter Set for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game.

You've fought zombies in the malls. You've fought them in the morgues. You've fought them in the prisons. You've fought them in castles. You've fought them in hedgerows. You'll soon be fighting them in space. But this new Zombicide lets you fight zombies in an all-new way. CMON has announced a new Zombicide Role-Playing Game.
This is a pretty big release month for CMON. They've got two core games and two expansions, split up between some of their more popular games. There's the latest version of Zombicide in the form of Green Horde. There's also the Rise of Moloch core box. The expansions are for Lorenzo il Magnifico, as well as Bloodborne: The Card Game.
Zombicide: Invader takes players far from the Earth. A mining colony on a backwater planet is being infested by Xenos that have been altered by a foreign fungus, turning them into merciless killing machines. The main type of Xeno you'll see are the Workers. They may be weak, but they have strength of numbers. And we get a look at what they'll look like in this preview.
Zombies! In! Spaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace!
Ok, so they're not really zombies. They're aliens. Aliens that have been infected with some form of horrific disease that are causing them to go berserk and attack anyone and anything close by. The citizens and soldiers on the mining out posts on planet PK-L7 (put there to mine for a new energy source) will have to fight against these waves of creatures in Zombicide: Invader, the latest installment of the cooperative survival horror game from CMON and Guillotine Games. It'll be hitting Kickstarter on April 10th.
You ever have one of those days where you wake up, get going with doing things, then look at the clock and are like, "Whoah! It's already 7pm!! How'd that happen!?!" Yeah, that was my yesterday. I woke the same as any other day except a voice was in my head... Ok, no voices in my head, but I did get started on various things, then realized that goddamn, it was late! So you didn't get your reviews yesterday. So I'm making up for it by posting them early today. Don't worry, this won't become a regular thing.

Anyway, today we have: Elder Sign: Omens of the Pharaoh, Zombicide: Green Horde, Batman: Gotham City Chronicles, Listit, Draconis Invasion, Dice Throne, Palm Island, City of Gears, Stuffed Fables, Pandemic: Rising Tide, V-Commandos: Secret Weapons, Planet of the Apes, Indian Summer, When I Dream, and Gaia Project.

At the CMON Media Event, we were able to get a look at various games that they have coming down the pipeline. One has a bit of extra pull for me, since I'm an old greenskin. Green Horde is the newest set for Zombicide: Black Plague. The horrible zombie menace hasn't just been contained to humans and some animals. The Orcs have also fallen victim to it. The implications for that are pretty gruesome for the few remaining survivors.
No matter how long a Kickstarter campaign is, there's always the chance you just don't have the funds available at the time. It's happened to all of us. Well, if it happened to you during the Zombicide: Green Horde Kickstarter campaign, never fear! The Late Pledges have opened up and let you jump right in, getting all those great exclusives I know you all love so much.
As with the big-box releases for Zombicide, there's a smaller-box expansion that goes along with it. In the case of Green Horde (currently up on Kickstarter), it's the Friends and Foes box. There's some new survivors, new familiars, and some new tiles, full of zombie goodness.
The Black Plague games have shown us that it's not just humans that can succumb to the forces that cause you to be raised from the dead and seek to feast on the living. We've seen crows and wolves, but other sentient races can be affected as well. I Green Horde, the orcs have had their populations turned into zombies. Now they're coming into the human lands. Green Horde is a new standalone expansion to Zombicide: Black Plague. It's up on Kickstarter now.
Also: Zombie Dragon.
Be that as it's May, we've got all sorts of plants blooming. The world is becoming green. Though the green that's just over the horizon isn't quite what we want to have in our garden. Green Horde is the new standalone set coming for Zombicide: Black Plague. It'll be launching at the end of May on Kickstarter and CMON's posted an overview of what you can expect.
Overnight, CMON's Rising Sun Kickstarter came to an end. It did alright. If you consider $4.2 million, "alright." o,O
As has become customary, the end of the old campaign ushers in an announcement of a new one. In this case, it's a new expansion for Zombicide: Black Plague. In this case, it's Green Horde. Yes, as if humans, wolves, and crows weren't bad enough, now the survivors of the zombie plague will have to fight zombie orcs and goblins.
