ESCAPE FROM ZOMBIE ISLAND!
Can our heroic survivors fight their way past the shambling zombie hordes to collect the supplies they need and make it to the boats?
This was a chance to playtest my new rules set at the Buckenham Bone Crushers games club. We made use of Paul's fantastic scenery including the sea defences, cliffs and beach board.
|The isand (please excuse blatant "Walker's Crisps" advertising!)|
Survivors started in 5 locations, each group consisting of 3 survivors. Zombies are represented by red counters scattered across the board. When one is spotted, we roll a D6: 1-2 = 1 zombie, 3-4 = 2 zombies, 5-6 = 3 zombies. Survivors move by expending action points, each has 4 per turn which can be used for shooting, walking (1" per AP), trying to hotwire cars, picking up items etc.
|Jayne and Zoe (or their stunt doubles) face the zombies.|
|Rifle Rick prepares to search the fenced-in outhouse.|
|Security forces lock the door and settle down for a siege.|
|Attracted by gunfire the zombies start to crowd the security office.|
|Townsfolk investigate a workshop... uh-oh, more zombies!|
|Charlie revs his chainsaw.|
|Alan Axe scarpers but Izzie i-Pad is too slow. Shaun's already been devoured.|
|Mal, Jayne and Zoe clamber into the fuel truck.|
|Oh dear! Izzy i-Pad gets eaten...|
|The fuel truck hurtles down towards the beach.|
|Security team make a break for it. Rapid fire!|
|Pistol Patty and a scared child leap from the roof and run for safety.|
|Rifle Rick leaps from the roof... and rebounds from the fence into the zombie horde.|
|IMEC pick up Alan the towsfolk survivor in their digger...|
|...and try to catch up with the fuel truck.|
|Patty and the child run for their lives.|
|Security team grab some food supplies.|
|Cheerleader zombie leaps aboard the digger!|
|Jayne takes down several zombies but there are just too many!|
|The digger demonstrates how efficient it is at squishing zombies!|
|Patty and the child join the Security team in their SWAT van.|
|Supplies are brought on board and the boat is fuelled.|
|And they're ready! Time to go!|
|The SWAT van leaps through the gap. Can they make it?|
|No! The boat has left. Gunfire riddles the fuel tanker leaving the beach in flames!|
