Just a few pictures of our recent game of Skirmish Outbreak. Have played this a few times now and am really enjoying it. Will have to start the Campaign mode soon.
I prefer this to ZombieTV, I have to say...not sure why yet, but just seems more fun.
Relatively easy mechanics. Using a points system, the Survivor player gets to spend, say, 250 points for a medium encounter. With the points, they choose their characters from a range of predefined survivor members and then gear them up. Choose between a cheap Average Joe or go for an expensive Elite.
Zombie controller gets 10 zombies + 1 zed per 100 points of survivor spend.
At the beginning of each new phase / turn, the Survivor rolls 3D6 and then halves the result, rounding up, to get their activation spend....we use small yellow counters.
The Zed controller rolls 3D6 and gets exactly that amount of activation points....so more.
Most things the players can do, results in the spending of a point/token, so bad rolls can lead to some tasty decisions.
I am not going to plough through the whole game mech here, but it is really enjoyable and well thought through. The rulebook can be a bit "all over the place" when you first start but perseverance is worth it.
Hope you enjoy the piccies😊
