First off it's been great seeing so much support from the kickstarter and beyond communities for this project. Thanks for all of that.
I know I'm a bit behind in terms of updates, but I wanted to share with you two of the special cards that the game has (one example per side for this update).
The first is the zombie player's card Braaaiinnsss.
This card allows the zombie play a surprising burst of tactical speed, allowing them to play 2 cards instead of 1 for the round (and after drawing a card too to give them better options)! With the right timing, this can be used to seal the deal on frightening a citizen and maybe even eradicating a key terror card on your opponent's side with a well timed attack.
The second card is the werewolf player's Full Moon.
This card actually reduces the courage rating of a single citizen by 3, making it that much easier for the werewolf player to frighten them. In addition , the werewolf player scores +3 extra VP at the end of the match, regardless of what terror cards they played on that citizen, if they frighten them. The Full Moon can definitely sway the odds in the werewolf player's favor for frightening harder citizens like the Hunter, Police Officer or Crazed Hermit.
Well that's it for now. I hope to have the art for the collector's edition cover to show soon. Stay tuned and keep spreading the word about Zombies vs Werewolves to your friends.
The kickstarter campaign is officially live and already I've had some great supporters from those of you out there that have helped to back this project. Many thanks to all of you for your contributions.
In the coming weeks I will have some neat updates to share with you all, from the new collector's edition box art, to examples of some of the special ability cards, to stretch goal thoughts, and even a musical number that I think you will all enjoy. :)
Stay tuned and thanks again for your support of Zombies vs Werewolves.
