@bigspoonybard - Is there an option to just outright buy the game vs buying gold over and over and over? If you have to constantly buy gold its an incredibly stupid business model. But if you can chose to outright buy the game or buy the gold then its an amazing idea on their part.


As far as I can tell, there is no outright purchase option. I agree; a full out purchase option would be an easy purchase.

They have modified the free/fee to play options since I played it the other day. Now, if you play the Pegasus Bridge or Juno Beach scenario, it will always be free. If you want to play other maps/scenarios, then you have to pony up from your supply of ingots. I suppose this makes your credits go further, but it's still not amazing.

Honestly, the pricing structure is the one thing that I have to complain about. I'm sure my credits will last me while as it is since I won't be playing it all the time, but it'd be nice to just have it and not worry about anything else.

After a full play of Eaten By Zombies, the game seems like a dud. Not much happens, then all of a sudden everyone is losing cards like crazy and then it's over. It never actually gets fun at any point. Plus there seems to be little reason to kill zombies. Doing so most likely means you will end up stuck with them in your hand, unable to get them out of your hand, which just means you'll never get a good hand again. Maybe I just don't get it, though. LOL.

I suppose you can take a risk and kill some zombies hoping that you'll get them in your hand in time before the first run through the deck is over, because at that point the runs through the deck accelerate exponentially and soon you can't get them out of your hand since each time through you need to draw an additional zombie each turn. So 2, then 3, etc. You almost certainly would never want to kill a zombie with an attrition of 2 (and never a 1).

The game just seems I'll-conceived. Pretty disappointing. I'll definitely be more wary of Kickstarter projects now. At least with Creatures I'll get some cool fridge magnets even if he game ends up sucking. LOL. :)

Having the zombies in your hand lets you choose when to pile them on to another player, causing a big loss at an inopportune moment.

I'm with you for the most part on the game, though. It's a little too basic, and doesn't escalate in an interesting manner. I'll play it again, but my expectations will certainly be lower. I much prefer Ascension to this for adding a type of combat to the deck-building genre.

Hmmmm we were with Jek. My wife and I agree with you that the game feels dull and seem to not really go anywhere, but our play experience was really different. We have played 3 or 4 games now(which should say how uninspired the game is since we have played like 20 games of Summoner Wars and another 20 of Quarriors in the same time frame)and in our games the first few turns could be kind of rough, but after you survived them the game got incredibly easy. Defeating zombies could also be pretty usefull, my wife and friend ran from them and I killed them and in return I was able to drop zombies on them the rest of the game.

Over all though the game just felt hollow though. It felt like it has many of the right mechanics to be a fun game....but just lacked a soul and it lacked a unique spin that made the game truly fun. I think that each character being a unique deck might have helped(like the mom has more sandwiches but little offense and the cop a lot of offense but no food).

I am thinking after a few more games if we still feel the same we I may try and make a variant for the game. I am thinking about maybe taking a lot of the cards you buy and adding them into unique decks. So as I said above the mom would have extra sandwiches and a few grandmas pantries where as the girl would have access to items that make sense in a school.

Yes, but you can't play zombies with an attrition equal to or lower than the number of zombies in the horde. After the first play through of the deck you put out 2 zombies per turn (plus any remaining), and then you go through the remaining zombies more than twice as fast and then you are at 3 zombies added per turn, etc. Soon you can't play the zombies in your hand and they stay there the rest of the game.

Posted 06 November 2011 - 11:55 PM

I was on the fence about backing EBZ, based on this feedback I'm glad I didn't. I don't have much call for deckbuilding games much anyway, and I'm sort of burnt out on them, but it sounded like it had a couple interesting tweaks. But not interesting enough, apparently.

I have backed Flash Point: Fire Rescue, Carnival, and most recently, Creatures. There's a lot of games on KS of varying apparent quality. What gets me is some of the backing levels. I've seen some where 1$ gets you "good karma" or "acknowledgement on our website", then there's nothing till the 50 or 60 buck level. I'm sorry, that's a lot of money for the ultimate blind buy.

Recent purchases:

* D&D Legend of Drizzt. This is supposed to be 'easier' than Ashardalon - I've played twice (solo) and gotten by butt kiicked within like three turns. Of course, once I rolled 20 for the monster, and a 1, 2, and 3 for my attack. I need to try it again, maybe non solo, but I'm feeling a little burned.

* Elder Sign. I like it a lot. Works fine solo. It definitely doesn't capture the whole feel of Arkham Horror, and it's easy to just flip cards and see what you need to do, but it combines enough eldritchness with the dice rolling that it's fun. It is easy to set up and plays in less than an hour which is bonus. I'm debating buying the iOS app for my ES on the go.

Recent purchase from Cool Stuff:
Survive - Escape from Atlantis, Catacombs, Tales of the Arabian Nights, and King of Tokyo.
I played each of these with my boy (he's 9) over the last few days - Catacombs thrice, KoT maybe 5 or 6 (it's real quick), Survive 2 or 3 and ToTaN once.

ToTaN's good as long as you can immerse yourself into the story and not just play for points. We started a short game, to 10 points, then when one of us made it he wanted to continue. I think the statuses add a little too much upkeep to the game, but we tried to balance that by only allowing one negative status at a time. I also find a website, $$$$$$$$$$$$/totan, that will make the encounter matrixes much easier to use (I was doing both the encounter matrix and the Book of Tales). This is definitely an experience more than a game, but there is a game in there. The first time I played it, it took like 3 hours, which is too long - but we had 4 players, none of whom had played before, and people weren't really focused on the game (it was at an event during a busy/loud time, it was difficult to get into the story frame of mind.)

Survive - fun. Although with only 2 players we either lost or rescued all our guys long before the island was fully sunk. It can be very backstabby or just 'everyone run', depending on how people play it. It moves very fast too.

KoT - another fun one although after playing it 5 times I'm not sure how much longevity it will have. I'm sure a lot of it depends on who you're playing with, and how many players - some cards were worthless with 2 players, some were awesome and looked worthless with more than 2. 2 players is certainly doable, but I fully see how more players is more stressful and exciting. I think each of our games was won by victory points.

Catacombs - I'm mixed about this one. He liked it a lot (you're flicking disks, of course he'd like it), but he wasn't really using a lot of the powers of the heroes. Some of the disks are hard to tell apart without a close scrutiny. It seems like there's a lot of fiddly setup for a quick game (ours were done in less than 1/2 hour). Again, with 2 players, I'm sure it's very different than with 5, but it does work with 2. And we had a couple instances of "I did hit it!" "No you didn't."

So those were my new purchases. Depending on the audience (as you can guess, my audience is primarily family/middleweight), and based on my current level of play, I think I'd rate them all around an 8 with a few caveats - ToTaN is longer and more experiential, you have to have people who can get into the story; Survive, you'd have to have folks who don't get irked in potentially confrontational games; KoT - nothing but confrontation, but quick and sillly enough that it's not a big deal; and Catacombs - not very deep but there's something primally cool about flicking disks, and the fantasy trappings make it more than just Sorry Sliders without scaring away people who aren't used to fantasy theme.

Oh, the 10-off coupon code (CN41) did work for me, although I wasn't a first time buyer. Didn't stack with my frequent purchase discount though, but my purchase did kick me up to the next level.

I was really tempted by Summoner Wars Master Set. That's a very nice package and quite a deal.

I have backed Dice Age and also Creatures on KS. Creatures looks like it'll be a lot of fun. I'm thinking about backing D-Day Dice as well.

I think I am going to back 3 more kick starters. 2 I am 90% sure of and 1 I am still on the fence about.

Rise
http://www.kickstart...ga?ref=category

Rise looks like a lot of fun and for the low asking price(like $20 or $30 with an exclusive kickstarter expansion)its worth a shot.

D-Day Dice
http://www.kickstart...dice-board-game

Again looks like a lot of fun and has some unique qualities. Reasonable asking price too and again comes with some kickstarter exclusives

Miskatonic School for Girls Deck building game
http://www.kickstart...k-building-game

This is the one I am really on the fence about $45(or $50 with the kickstarter exclusive bonus cards)is a lot to ask for a deck building game. Still it looks fun, the art looks gorgeous and several people at board game geek that have played the unreleased build say its a lot of fun. I think I will end up biting on this, but iv been trying to wait to last minute in hopes of reviews getting posted.

Also Jesus tap dancing christ is Ghost Stories hard. Iv played about 20 games and not only have I not won a single game but I also have yet to even get through the number of ghosts needed to summon in the big baddy!

One of the keys to Ghost Stories is to not to as much as possible, not risk trying to exorcise a ghost, always be sure you *can* exorcise it via tokens. Then if you get lucky with the dice you get to keep your tokens and if you aren't lucky, you didn't waste a turn. Wasting a turn is probably the worst thing you can do. Also don't try to play with all 4 monks at first - that's way harder. Play with one monk. Also put the budda tile in the middle so you can easily grab buddas and power tokens, and in fact you can grab both buddas in your first turn by using a power token (using the monk's power that lets you use a tile twice), then get the power token back at the end of the turn. Also I recommend playing with I think it's the yellow monk - the one that lets you take a token each turn.

Also, try playing this extra easy variant to start:

http://boardgamegeek...ode-1-4-players

That helped me get the hang of the game and then you can work you way back to the stock set of cards, a little at a time. After that you'll probably find you often win on Initiate. I've even won on the hardest level since.

I dont own the actual game, just the IOS release so I cant play variants. I may pick it up eventually though because it seems like a game that with a few variants to make it more reasonable would be really fun.

Only thing I am seeing is that fairplaygames.com has free shipping on an order over $125 which combines with a general 7% off orders of $150. Their prices usually are not THE best but are close to the best. So if you can afford to place an order of that size you may shave $10 or so off what you would have spent elsewhere ;(

fairplaygames.com has a FREESHIP100 code for free shipping over $100, which is better than normal, and their prices, at least for the stuff I just priced, is better than coolstuffinc. I'm trying to resist, though. i really didn't want to buy $100+ worth of games. I was originally just thinking of getting Ticket to Ride Europe and maybe Asia. Sigh.

Hmmm what games were you looking at? I checked a few and they and coolstuffinc were pretty on par(if anything coolstuff was slightly better)

I'm itching to jump on that Dreadfleet deal. I have a soft spot for Games Workshop stuff, but it's harder than hell to find people who have the time to sit down and run a few.

Ticket to Ride Europe ($31.95 vs. $34.95) and Ticket to Ride Asia ($19.95 vs. $20.49) for starters. In fact all of the games I looked at, when I was putting in $100 worth of stuff, were cheaper at FairPlayGames.com.

But if I'm just buying one or two, then Amazon is cheaper than both. It's only more if you are willing to spend $100 on games at once.

Hmmmm well ill be damned. maybe amazon is finally trying to compete in the board game market. They are indeed cheaper for quite a few games.
