Planes Trains and Very Large Boats

Posted by Jeff Gracia: Greenbrier Games (Creator)

We are excited to announce that Zpocalypse is finished production and currently sitting on a boat. The "UASC Doha v.1301e" is scheduled to leave this Saturday and arrive state-side the 5th of February. After that we just have to clear customs and have it trucked over to our warehouse which could take up to four weeks. Two if we're lucky.

There is one catch. I'm not sure if you have heard but we just missed having a strike at our US ports. Hopefully they stay in agreement however If a strike were to happen it could be extremely bad for both you and us. Not only would it delay the container getting through customs but would cost us thousands of dollars as it sits on the docks. We have been checking the following site for the latest updates:

Now for something a bit exciting. You may remember that K-mini (renamed Zmergency) was upgraded several times during the course of Zpocalypse. We saw the opportunity and the time while waiting on plastics to turn this into a full expansion as a gift to you all. Zmergency comes with 12 tiles instead of 8, a rule book, as well as tokens which were all not planned on. As pictured below is the full spread of everything which comes with Zmergency! Zmergency is included as a free expansion for all 55+ backers:

      @Daniel: You are correct about the Zmergency expansion. In order to play both the Fema camp (Side A) and the hospital (Side B). You would need 2 sets of the tiles and 1 adapter. Which you have ordered.

    2. Daniel Henson on

      @Techno Shaman. Right, but I guess what I'm saying is that we paid extra to get to play both sides do Zmergency at the same time. If the upgrade means you can already do that without a spare set of tiles, or that the Zmergency tiles aren't double-sided now, I at least would rather adjust my purchase to get something that isn't redundant. If the upgrade means something else, and a spare tile set with adapters would still be necessary to play both sides, then awesome and no change needed. If this were something included in the pledge I wouldn't even be asking, but this is a matter of having spent more outside and in addition to a pledge. If that extra purchase is now redundant, I'd rather throw money at you guys for something else. :-)

      @Daniel Henson said "Oh, I do have a question, though. What does the upgrade to Zmergency mean for those of us that purchased an extra set of "K-mini, tiles only?" IIRC, the original reason to do so was to be able to play both sides/scenarios simultaneously. Is this still the case?"

      What's shown above is what everyone above $55 pledge level will receive for backing us. For those of you who requested additional k-mini tiles, you'll get an additional set of 12 zmergency tiles on top of the ones that zmergency comes with. I know I personally ordered 2 sets myself, with an adapter set, as I envision using these tiles for a Tabletop homebrew d20 game, where the survivors go from the fema camp, into the hospital to find the helicopter to take them to new locations unknown at this time.

      Amazing update! really excited and glad I'm glad I backed where I did to obtain the "new expansion"!

      Rock on guys (and gals!)

    7. Chris Eaton on

      can't wait to play this thing!

      This is awesome news! Thanks for the update and all the hard work put into the project.

    9. Jorge Alvarez

      Awesome news about the expansion! And not to sound inconsiderate to all the work you've been doing... but when can we expect a new print and play? :) Just wondering...

      Great news about the "expanded" expansion. I certainly appreciate the extra effort. I'm sure the game will be worth the wait; just hoping the labor issue doesn't add further delay and storage expense. It worked out on the east coast (Baltimore, if I recall) so they'll probably come to an agreement on the west coast as well.

      thats a great news!
      Thank you, I am really eager to put my zombie hands on this fat game....

      Awesome, thanks for the upgrade to the upgrade that was originally upgraded many times. Oh, the dreaded Customs at the port. I remember years ago, I had ordered a limited edition statue from my favorite comic shop and the boat with the container that held my figure set off some Customs alarm and it all the stuff waiting to head to the distributor sat in Customs for nearly 18 months. Here's hoping that doesn't happen.

      I didn't think of this specific product, but heard the news reports on NPR and wondered if any of the inbound KS projects I've invested in would be affected. Glad to hear that so far you haven't been. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    14. Peter Jacob on

      Sweeeeeet. Can't wait to round up my friends and drag them through a new zombie apocalypse.

    15. Daniel Henson on

      Oh, I do have a question, though. What does the upgrade to Zmergency mean for those of us that purchased an extra set of "K-mini, tiles only?" IIRC, the original reason to do so was to be able to play both sides/scenarios simultaneously. Is this still the case?

    16. Daniel Henson on

      Woah! Awesome news on the upgrade. You guys rock. Here's hoping there's no strike.

    17. KZ (KingZombie)

      You guys that's awesome!! Will all the custom stuff shipped with our sets then?

      I will be sending happy thoughts and good karma to the dockworkers so they don't strike again.
