Some pics from our Wednesday game night. One table played Eero Tuovinen’s Zombie Cinema and the other played Scott’s hack of The Final Girl in which a daimyo tries to marry off his rude daughter to a number of unlucky suitors.
Zombie Cinema was really cool. It uses a slim, elegant ruleset to successfully pull off what it says on the back of the (literal) box: to tell a story inspired by classic zombie movies. It uses a unique board game-style mechanic, with the zombies getting closer and closer to pawns trying to escape to safety. But rather than the board tracking actual physical distance between the characters and the zombies, it instead tracks the narrative beats of a zombie film, and how “close” the characters are to dying onscreen.
I’ll let someone else chime-in on the Final Girl hack.
Thanks to Scott Owen for sharing his hack with us, and to everyone else who came out : Kristen D David LaFreniere Daniel Lewis Ferrell Riley Daniel Fowler and new guy Michael.
