I agree too with Chris. CMON could start a kickstarter for 'reprinting' of past "Kickstarter only extras" or just for add-ons or upgrades for the past zombicide-games. I for myself would never buy some missed kickstarter-zombicide-games, 'cause it feels like to buy an incomplete game - so in consequence i won't buy zimbicide 1-3 and zombicide BP, because i missed the kickstarter and i would never buy a way too expensive "zombicide kickstarter pledge" on ebay. They're selling the kickstarter-extras on ebay for three time the original price.
I agree @Chris It would be nice if they place some focus on continuing to upgrade the original Zombicide and Zombicide BP. Hopefully in the near future.
You know what would be better than an extra identical tile set? How about an extra set of tiles with a new scenario book of pre-built variations. I love Zombicide and have all the sets, but it's beginning to feel like Call of Duty. Same game in a new skin. How about some new stuff for the ones we already have? Or how about extra sets of zombies? I shouldn't have to go to ebay to buy more walkers. Anyone else feel this way?
I guess I'm the odd man out on the tile set. I never buy the extra tile sets for any of the Zombicide, but I think I will buy this one. I can see using it for a couple of other sci-fi games I own.
The extra tile set is a bit pricey, isn't it?
Will the box be big enough to store all the tile maps from the other boxes in one place?
Well.. At this point I will probably get all the optional buys but I am really looking forward to some guest boxes too. :D
Maybe some giant space dragons or something.
Hoping for a plastic token set as an optional buy!
How about a painting kit as optional buy ?
I already see people whining about the KS sofar ... really? Please offer constructive criticism instead.
It would be great if the tile set came with a little book with BIG MAP missions :D
What size are the tiles? Is my desk large enough?
Well, it's pretty similar to the formula for Black Plague. The main difference was that they offered some guest boxes at this point. Nothing big in the way of mechanics though.
Still very excited for the game, the expansion for it and all the SG miniatures! That said, this tile set is a bit disappointing, only because it's just the tilesets we'll be getting from the game+expansion. Was hoping for new missions along with new varied environments for terrain, part of a derelict ship or some wasteland hazardous areas to add to the hostile Planet. Maybe even more tiles relating to Civilian housing etc etc. This just seems more thrown together than reall get me hyped up for bigger maps/play sessions via bigger/extended map.
What about an artbook in optional buy?
There was a big box expansion and a guest box within the first week of Green Horde. The tiles came near the end. There was also more thought and gameplay in the early stretch goals. It doesn’t bode well for their support of this game or the thought put into it. Like I said, at this point in the campaign I was hoping to see more from CMON. The space theme has been asked for for years in so many previous campaigns that no one was surprised it was coming... years. Like I also said, hopefully I’m wrong!
Not really into the tile set, but at least it and the dice were thrown in early (and it is early, not even a week into the campaign...). Hopefullly we'll get at least another expansion with a new enemy roster or some other gameplay shakeup before any other add-on (crossovers, guest artists, plastic tokens, 3D terrain...last two are guaranteed)
These are common to every game, the good stuff will come later
Wow, this may have killed the campaign for me. They seem to be mailing it in on this which makes me doubt the whole game if THIS is the add-on they’re leading with? They now have 3 add-ons and nothing that adds to actual, CMON created, gameplay... it’s not looking good... like they aren’t concerned with making this one a solid game, just a cash grab. I had high hopes, too! Hanging on for a little while longer because I hope I’m wrong but man...
I would need balanced scenarios offered with the tile set to consider it or at least promise of an online pdf with tiles using the tiles released around delivery time.
Tempting to get the extra tiles, since I likely won't be playing the actual game, but instead marking off all tiles into 1 inch squares and writing a pen & paper campaign using d20 Future/Pathfinder Rules. Picture a crossover between Aliens, Artemis/The Martian, Firefly, We Are Legion & Starship Troopers :)
My experience with the extra tiles. Is that you can create awsome New scenarios but is also very easy to fall into almost imposible to win scenarios. You need to be very carefull to balance them apropiately.
@Michael - They don't print blank cards because they give you 4x the number of cards you need in the expansions thanks to the foreign language cards that are always in the box. You can take a card sleeve and put your custom item or spawn description on the front side and have the backing look exactly like the other cards. A large number of people sleeve their cards to make them easier to shuffle, so blank cards are kind of pointless. They do provide printable blanks for characters, items, and spawns for all of their games.
They can save their creative for things like figuring out how to get my Green Horde core boxes on a goddamned truck to be delivered.
Another idea...I don't know why they don't sell like a blank card pack with a few dozen of each card type. Omg that would be a hot seller too. For non unique blank printed cards!! Or include 10 blank on the front cards with like the little expansion packs. Kind of like agricola did with the colored minis expansions
Hm, would be cool if we see a Crystal and Lava type deal that Massive Darkness did, where they included a small campaign with unique tiles...do one for the Mines!
I know a lot of people never ever buy the extra tile packs. Everyone knows just the 6 tile games can take 3 or more hours. If they were to include even 3 custom missions with the tile pack they would literally sell out of them. Heck include 6 missions and charge 5 more bucks...it would sell like crazy
If you have no plans to homebrew your own missions then the tile pack isn’t for you.
A 24 tiles map is jaw-dropping, but how do you play it?
I see it would break any scenario that comes with the game, and I'm not at all creative Frankenstein-ing my own scenarios. Waiting for a (good) fan-created scenario seems too sketchy to spend $25 more ...
Also. moooar senarios wouls be awesome to all the tiles :)
naa would do double plegde bevore add mappack
Or even an additional tile set which was new with some new scenarios.
Hmmmmm, now I wonder if those Mine tiles are under the Black Ops tiles...
Second on Phillip new tiles new stuff for gameplay not just more characters for sg
Pretty neat, but it'd be even more sweet if there were new tiles as stretch goals!
Will there be rules and guides included on how we can build our own balanced custom scenarios?
