Another game is being readied for play at the Headingley Games Club. It’s ZOMBICIDE. Come and join the destruction of the living Dead at the club. No! Not the club members; the little plastic models in the game. Boardgamegeek review says
Zombicide is a collaborative game in which players take the role of a survivor – each with unique abilities – and harness both their skills and the power of teamwork against the hordes of unthinking undead! Zombies are predictable, stupid but deadly, controlled by simple rules and a deck of cards. Unfortunately for you, there are a LOT more zombies than you have bullets.
Find weapons, kill zombies. The more zombies you kill, the more skilled you get; the more skilled you get, the more zombies appear. The only way out is zombicide!
Play ten scenarios on different maps made from the included modular map tiles, download new scenarios from the designer’s website, or create your own! Matthew has bought the full set of toys so get ready for Zombie hunting.
We had two games in play. It seems to be a popular games system. We had better get some games board painted blue/black.

Select your crew, plan your maneuvers, and complete your mission! Watch the video tutorial here.
Bolt Action 28mm WW II skirmish wargame by Warlord Games
“Dragging most of the known world into its brutal and devastating clutches, the Second World War was a conflict the scale of which the world has never seen. From Blitzkrieg to North Africa, from the Russian Front to the D-Day landings, World War II remains arguably the most popular period for wargamers.”
The Headingley Games Club has acquired a starter set from Warlord Games. Dean Heathcote will be putting on introductory sessions on Thursdays by request. Use the the Headingley Games Club facebook page to contact him to set up a session…or contact him via the best Wargames Blog the Web: too much lead.
In Agricola, you’re a farmer in a wooden shack with your spouse and little else. On a turn, you get to take only two actions, one for you and one for the spouse, from all the possibilities you’ll find on a farm: collecting clay, wood, or stone; building fences; and so on. You might think about having kids in order to get more work accomplished, but first you need to expand your house. First published 2007 this Agricola has become an award-winning game. Boardgamegeek reviews it highly. The game at the Headingley Games Club was one of many. The five players had close results-22, 40, 41, 42 and 44 points.
Heroclix-the collectable miniature game by Wizkids. Heroclix was up for playing at the Headingley Games Club last Thursday. Lots of Heroes fuigures moving around the board bashing things. HeroClix is a collectible miniatures game that uses the Clix system that centers around the world of superhero comic books, especially the Marvel and DC Comics universes. Players construct teams of comic book heroes, villains, or characters from various video games series such as Street Fighter, Gears of War, and Halo and engage in a turn-by-turn battle on grid maps based on various storyline locations. The Hulk, Spiderman, iron man, green goblin, Mr Hyde, a huge Fondness for Batroc, a horrendous French stereotype with a fancy mustache called ze Leaper are some of the chosen few out on the board. It looks like it’s up for repeat games on future Thurdays.
