CMON is back on Kickstarter shortly after their last Zombicide outing with another game, this time set to the theme of George A. Romero’s 1968 horror film Night Of The Living Dead. Take a peek at this one...

Night Of The Living Dead - CMON

This new game brings both the flavour of Romero's old zombie film and also familiar Zombicide mechanics into play. You can choose to set up the game and play it in Romero Mode where the characters are more like their on-screen counterparts, weaker and less skilled, trying desperately to hold off the walking dead as they shamble after them.

You can then upgrade them if you like and play the game in Zombicide Mode where the characters are more skilled, more brutal and maybe even enjoy slaughtering their way through the hordes of Zombies and Ghouls now before them. However, in a twist, if they encounter their now undead relatives they become so shocked and broken that they revert back to their unsure Romero Mode iterations, making it a challenge to try and keep them going.

As you might imagine from a CMON game, there is quite a lot as part of the main pledge...

...and if you're interested in getting more of an overview of how the game plays then CMON also put together a handy video (below) which will run through all that you need to know. So, if you're on the fence about the game you can always jump in and see if this is going to be for you.

One cool thing that these folks have done is shown off ways to paint the models in the greyscale of the original movie. We've done something similar in the past so make sure to let us know if you'll be attempting that look for these characters and ghouls!

Are you tempted by this one?
