Zombiaki 2: Attack On Moscow Review

This is my first review for BGG and is based on about four plays of the game with my better half.

Introduction

Zombiaki II Attack On Moscow is a two player strategic card game between zombies and humans. One player plays the defending humans the other the attacking zombies. The human player wins by stopping the zombies from overcoming their defences. The zombie player wins by overcoming the human defences before dawn.

Presentation

The card box contains: 40 cards for the zombie player, 40 for the human player, 5 cross street cards, a barricade card (human side) and a cemetery card (oddly enough the zombie side). The cards are well done with a large clear title (chains, pickaxe, steroids, shot etc), a generally entertaining picture, a visual representation of a cards health (for zombies) or damage dealing potential (for human cards), a bit of flavour text (“Fresh zombie steak!”), more text describing the gameplay of the card and a number telling you how many of that card are in the deck. The cards seem to be about as tough as a card from Magic.

The text is generally clear enough to work out what each card does. For some cards there seemed to be an odd missing word and one of the zombie cards was in German. Which actually just added to the entertainment for me.

My first review at the Geek 🙂

The video, like cake, is a lie.

The Black Library

Just got myself acouple of books from The Black Library. Including The First Heretic.

Amidst the galaxy-wide war of the Great Crusade, the Emperor castigates the Word Bearers for their worship. Distraught at this judgement, Lorgar and his Legion seek another path while devastating world after world, venting their fury and fervour on the battlefield. Their search for a new purpose leads them to the edge of the material universe, where they meet ancient forces far more powerful than they could have imagined. Having set out to illuminate the Imperium, the corruption of Chaos takes hold and their path to damnation begins. Unbeknownst to the Word Bearers, their quest for truth contains the very roots of heresy…

You can download a sample chapter. Turns out the ebooks come with no drm. Which is refreshing in this day and age. Or at least nothing obvious. The Calibre ebook viewer was able to open both the epub and the mobi files without issue.There may well be some kind of social drm embedded in the files. but I suspect not.

So there you go.
