Anyone who enjoys a good zombie show will love this game. It manages to meld the thematic feel of all your favorite shows and movies. The zombies start appearing slowly and are easy to handle but sure enough as more appear tensions mound. Being a coop game everyoneis in it together trying to survive in a post zombie world

The mechanics are extremely easy to learn and allow people of all gaming skill to dive in and have fun.

And for the love of god, if horror movies haven’t taught you anything, stick together. Never split up!

Just like my review of the original core set, this is a great gateway game for people who may not have any or much experience with tabletop miniature gaming. It is a bit of a mash up that I would say puts it between mini wargaming and board gaming. I really like the art and style and found the rules to be very simple for a new player.

I’ve since used this game to get other friends (that don’t game) into table top wargames. I consider it a gateway. It’s also nice for veterans if they want a simple fast game that can be played in 20 minutes.

This game introduced me to tabletop gaming. It was a gateway to more complex games later.

Having never played anything with miniatures before I tried 40k and found it to over whelming, too expensive, and clunky. Dust maybe to simple for veterans but proved just right for a newbie like me interested in learning more. I got to learn a lot of lingo like initiative, cover saves, etc and also picked up a few things with regard to playing tactful (opposed to how I started… Rush and kill everything).

I recommend this game and it’s revised core sets to all new gamers.
