Is anyone planning on doing any (more) zombie (paper) minis anytime soon? I can see this game requiring a lot of them in an urban setting, which is what I like.
I've thought about going 15mm, just so I can have "larger" games, but haven't committed myself yet. For one, everything I've cut out so far would have to be redone. I've found some 15mm minis for pretty cheap, but I like the idea of staying with paper. Besides, I do not want to paint minis.
There are three kinds of people in this world: those who can count and those who can't.
I've built a ton of buildings but I'm still undecided about how I want to make my game board. Yours is serioulsy tempting me to use Streets of Mayhem. I didn't like the look of it up close, but it looks excellent in your pics.
My first ATZ game went simlar to yours. I had 3 players, each Rep 3 with melee weapons. After the first 5 minutes, one player was zombie chow and another was being carried away by only one still standing
We just immediately started a new game and the second one went much better.
I've found that larger groups increase your survivability. I have a regular group of 6 players now, each controlling one star and any grunts they happened to have recruited in game, and they stomp the 2-3 zombies you find while exploring new buildings.
You might want to also consider a house rule that we use. It started out as me misreading the rules, but we like the way it worked out so we've kept it.
If another player is within 4" of another player when they are dropped by a zombie we allow them a reaction test to rescue them from being feasted on. Player rolls Rep and passing 1d6 puts them in base to base with the downed charecter between them and the zombie. Passing 2d6 allows them to grab the downed charecter and keep an inch between them and the zombie.
It has come into play in every session we've run and it seems to add a movie charecter level of survivablity for the charecters.
Encourages the players to stick together and work as a team. Stragglers end up Zombie Chow.
Vermin King: I still don't think I have it, but been doing run around trying to get in to see someone, somewhere about getting tested. If not The Virus, I still need to figure out what this is and get it knocked out

Vermin King: I wish I hadn't been curious. Hadn't taken my temperature for a few days, and I'm running a slight fever again. I'm so ticked off. I guess tomorrow I will have to do the nurse hotline. Sun on the Beach...

Vermin King: But I had to drop off my electric bill before Monday (an excuse to get out), and saw I still had a full tank of gas. Filled up on 3/11 and after tonight have gone 54.7 miles ...

Vermin King: Since my Location is either Randolph, Sugar Creek, Four miles SW of Sugar Creek, or Raytown, I wonder if I'm being shown as ignoring the order. As with all stats, you have to take them with a grain of salt

Vermin King: I see that Stay-at-Home is only about 45% effective in the US. That is 45% of folks with cell phones are staying put. Big Brother is tracking cell phone GPS. And why not?

Vermin King: I keep getting a server error when I try to get the rules. I'll have to try some other time

marcpasquin: After Goscinny died, people thought it would be the end of Asterix as he was the writing part of the team but Uderzo managed to keep it going and eventually pass on the torch to new teams that still produce albums to this day.

marcpasquin: Asterix was such a big part of my childhood. Not only did I read all the albums but every years the cartoon movies were part of "Ciné-Cadeau", a holiday time programming block on Télé-Québec that showed animated movies for kids.

lightning: I cannot count how often I read Asterix and Obelix as a kid. Loved how it always ended at a big town dinner around a huge bonfire and the troubadour was gagged somewhere so he couldn't sing. Good times!

Parduz: I still love that comics. Some of them (around the middle age of Asterix production) have some of the best story/dialogues/jokes ever.

squirmydad: God I LOVED those books as a child. Sorry to see him pass.

wyvern: RIP Albert Uderzo, co-creator with René Goscinny of the Asterix comic books. [And no, he died from a heart attack.]

Vermin King: Trump is an S-hole, but Clinton should be in prison. I don't like Biden, but at least it's a step up from 2016

Vermin King: Well, my efforts to reboot 2020 haven't worked, so I probably won't try the others. BTW, I have always said I am an equal opportunity politician basher. Trump is undoubtedly an ass, but I still have to look at him being the lesser of two evils.
