Zombicide: Black Plague is described as a standalone cooperative boardgame for 1 to 6 players that brings the relentless zombie-killing action of Zombicide into a brand new fantasy setting. It has new survivors, new zombies, new equipment, and revamped rules.
Much like the original game, each survivor in Zombicide: Black Plague receives a quality plastic dashboard to keep them organized. A built-in sliding arrow tracks experience gains, and plastic pegs mark wounds and indicate new skills. Finally, multiple slots hold all your cards, making the new inventory system intuitive and structured.
The creators revealed:
“Players control a party of survivors as they fight to rid the land of an invasion of zombies controlled by the game itself. Survivors find weapons, learn spells, battle zombies, and gain experience. The more experienced they get, the more powerful they become, but the more zombies rise to face them!”
New to the Zombicide series is the introduction to armor. Any survivor wearing armor (or carrying a shield) has a chance of blocking multiple zombie attacks with a lucky roll. Unfortunately, the armor does not help against the ultimate villain of the game, Abomination (which players are only to kill if they have powerful weapons or Molotov).
Upon achieving $3 million the CoolMiniOrNot crew announced that the fearsome Abominatroll to all backers. These trolls are much like the main Abominations. They added:
“All backers are already getting an Abominotaur, an Ablobination, and now an Abominatroll. But some people are just too fearless (that’s one way to put it) to settle for just one of each of these nightmares.”
Those last minute backers that are looking to receive the game starting at $100, have until 7 p.m. EST to donate.
