Gamelyn Games adds zombies to the Tiny Epic series

Seems like every Tom, Dick, and Harry is coming out with a Zombie themed something. Movie, TV show, game, PJs.

But now zombies have invaded the Tiny Epic world. Fortunate for all of us, if there was any one that can do it up right, it’s the gang at Gamelyn Games. The Kickstarter for Tiny Epic Zombies is here with an estimated delivery soon after, April 2018 for the PnP, Oct 2018 for the physical game.

There are a whopping 5 modes of play:

1. Cooperative team-play with game controlled Zombies.

2. Cooperative team-play with Zombies controlled by a non-team player.

3. Competitive free-for-all with game controlled Zombies.

4. Competitive free-for-all with Zombies controlled by a player.

5. Solo.

Players will have to complete 3 objectives before the zombies over run the mall courtyard in order to win. If a player dies, that character becomes a zombie and now works toward the destruction of the other players.

All of the add-ons in the Kickstarter are part of the pledges, so you don’t have to worry about adding items on to your Pledge Manager in order to receive them. It’s all inclusive.

The Mega Meeple Podcast has it’s first co-host!

A while back I had put out a request for anyone available and willing to be a co-host on the podcast. Someone that had more knowledge and experience with RPGs and boardgames than me that can bring another perspective and approach to the gaming hobby. As well as someone that I can bounce topics off and banter with so you don’t have to listen to my voice drone on and on about stuff only I know about. Luckily someone has stepped up to bat and you’ll be hearing him on episode 21 of The Mega Meeple Podcast.

More info about him upcoming. Stay tuned!
