Know Your Surroundings - The Tiles of Season 3
Season 3 introduces a whole new set of game tiles to Zombicide with Rue Morgue and Angry Neighbors. These tiles feature not only a new theme to the game (in the form of a hospital, camp sites and dilapidated buildings) but also a few different game mechanics. Let's explore the Season 3 tiles and learn more about our surroundings. This information could save your life someday!
The hospital tiles on the right feature indoors corridors and rooms. Corridors count as street zones.
Hospital tiles present a constant source of danger: beds! Blue and green beds may spawn Crawlers, similar to how a Manhole may spawn Zombies.
Rooms in a hospital, unlike normal rooms, cannot be Searched. The only hospital rooms where you can Search are the Locker Rooms, such as the ones on the top right of tiles 4V and 5V.
The tiles on the right are camp tiles. They count as street zones and, according to the mission, may receive tent cards which block line of sight. The contents of a tent remains secret until a Survivor enters it, revealing it and spawning zombies inside. It may be a tent with beds (which can't be searched and may spawn Crawlers), or an Administrative or Infirmary tent (which can be searched).
The helicopter can only take off and land on Zones such as the helipad on tile 9R or the wasteland on tile 7V.
The main feature of the Angry Neighbors tiles are the Hole Zones. They count as street Zones for line of sight, can't be Searched and don't spawn Zombies. In order for a Survivor or Zombie to leave a Hole Zone, he must spend 2 additional Actions, on top of the normal Move Action!
Some Hole Zones, such as the one on tile 12R, feature wooden boards crossing a Hole Zone. These boards directly connect the two adjacent Zones, allowing Actors to Move diagonally, see diagonally and even shoot diagonally!
If you'd like to have additional tiles in order to have even more versatility for your custom missions, we have optional buy extra tiles packs for both Rue Morgue and Angry Neighbors. If you're interested in purchasing any of these optional buys, please just click the Manage Pledge button on the Zombicide Season 3 Kickstarter page and in the pledge manager add the amount of each item you'd like to add. We'll sort out what your extra money is going towards after the campaign has closed and we've sent out our pledge manger.
These tile packs feature the same tiles as their corresponding game boxes. However, the Angry Neighbors Tiles Pack includes an extra helicopter token with a different design from the one included in the Season 3: Rue Morgue game box.
