Here is my intro to the new blog;
Dead Wars! A Tabletop Tactical Zombie WargameDead Wars!
I have looked for a tactical zombie wargame where multiple survivors (or multiple groups of survivors) battle each other and zombies. I wanted dozens if not hundreds of zombies on the table. I purchased every set of zombie rules I could find; All Things Zombie, Skirmish Oubreak, Dead Meat, several others. ALL of them I could find. All of them did what they were supposed to do well enough, but did not do what I wanted.
This is my squad based game system. My plan is to have rules for multiple Dead Wars! Subsets;
1. Regular Zombies; this is the main rule set
2. Rage/ Rabid Zombies
3. Nazi Zombies
4. Musket Era Zombies
5. Medieval Zombies
6. Pulp Zombies; Gaming with Movie Characters
In my system each player will have 1 to 4 characters (usually 3 or 4) with 1 to 6 players. Players will be on the same side or opposite sides. Zombies are game controlled. The main rules are done. I am just playtesting and tweeking. Characters have action points. Each player draws a card a turn which can bring in game controlled groups of characters, or have surprise groups of zombies come spilling out of unexplored buildings, or more often give a minor boost or penalty. Buildings have interiors when possible (though it's not necessary).
