We decided that the two of us playing would have six survivors in total. We could choose one each and the remaining four were random. I choose Genevieve and the DT choose Morgan. This added something to the game as we had to alter our play style to the skills of the survivors and the weapons we discovered.
We also played the NCP's and as such we had a vault deck. Anyone killing all five types of zombie was entitled to a card from that deck.
There are two vaults in the scenario and each has a random vault weapon.
So the big question was - which, if any, of the big boys would turn up.
Actually the first thing that we discovered that with all the new Necromancer cards in the game there are lots and lots of free moves for the Necromancer. Its like they are sprinting. This took us by surprise and it wasn't long before one made it off the board. We now had five spawn points and the pressure was on.
We discovered one of the Evil Twins and killed him. Hurray. But then the Ablobination showed himself. He has a reach of one square and will make short work of any survivor. Montalbon (below) beat a fast retreat from the open door in front of him.
Magic was not a big factor as we didn't discover and good weaponry. We had Morgan and Milo. Both did very little damage, intact Morgan spent most of his time shooting his long bow.
Glynda proved to be great fun and did Gilbert. Genevieve did really well as she got a good bow early and Montalbon was using his Hit & Run ability to great effect.
We ran out winners in the end of what proved to be a fun evening. I felt that the Blob had earned some paint and so he will ooze his was in games in the future in full technicolour!
