Two Walking Dead Board Games are coming. Family game night is about to get hella’ bloody. Z-Man Games will be releasing a 6-player version based on the comics this summer while Cryptozoic Entertainment is making a version based on the TV show that also lets you play as a zombie after you’ve been infected. Both games are set to be priced at $39.99.

Not much is known about how either of these games will play, but I hope to God there’s a “cut off your arm in real life or you lose” card.

Live a good life. Marcus Aurelius

Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.

TCS -Part 1 of 4 “Bloody 110” from Gamers The Battle for Heinersheid

TCS (Tactical Combat System) provides a great platform to explore how combined arms worked in WWII. In this instance we are using Bloody 110 to explore what happened to Company A against the 116th Recon kampfgruppe. This is a four part video. Enjoy. Kev

Battle for Heinersheid Bloody 110 TCS

Well I just finished the scenario and filming and editing. Looks pretty good.

I’m going to hold posting for a bit as I have posted a lot the last 2-3 days.

The video is nearly 50 minutes long at 250% speed up. For ten turns.

I think an hour a turn is going to be an unrealistic expectation with larger games. 4-6 stacks took nearly that long. Yikes!  

A 70-170 turn game is going to run a loooooonnng time. 

Bloody 110 brings the historicity out accurately and does a fair job of representing the feel of WWII combat, the one thing I am beginning to realize in scenario design is timing is crucial.  

If that scenario was 2 turns shorter, it could have been no fun. 2 turns longer and well, it would have allowed some foot dragging. Although there is not much for the US player to do in any case.

Onwards and upwards. I think I may break out CC. I had been waiting ever so patiently for CC New Guinea to turn up. It appears my copy is AWOL.

Its either that or a nice complex scenario of Infidel.
