Shuffling Horror Week: Day 1 at All Things Fun!

October 26th, 2014
News, Shuffling Horror Week, Shuffling Horrors

Shuffling Horror Week has begun! The Midnite Shuffler and his zombies shuffled into¬†All Things Fun! in West Berlin, NJ. Two games were played to start the series. Both games were set against four players; in game terms this is the toughest scenario to beat for the Zombie Master. The Midnite Shuffler was going to have to play hard if his zombies were going to eat this evening…

Here’s the Shuffler’s report:

Game 1: My zombies had the Opening Night jitters and they quickly flooded the table in Reel 1. Starting with almost three full throngs, I thought this was going to be a walk in the park, gobbling up Survivors as we strolled by. Boy was I fooled! My dice were cursed and much of the game had the survivors laughing at my futile efforts to rally the zombies (who really just stood around looking not-very-scary). Excellent and daring strategies by the Survivors, too. The zombies did somehow manage to take out two Survivors, but the game ended with ten happy survivors, well armed and well rested. In game terms this is what we call a Scooby Doo.

Game 2: Quite the opposite of Game 1! The zombies composed themselves and started to bring out the horror. One by one we picked off the players, until one player and one survivor remained: The Waitress (aka the Sigourney Weaver of Pittsburgh 68). Despite the fact that is the tables had turned an it was now four Zombie Players versus one Survivor Player, she finished the game as a lone survivor, bringing a second win for the Survivors in one night. Drats!

Here’s the score, folks!

Shuffling Horror Week: Locations Announced

October 20th, 2014
News, Shuffling Horror Week, Shuffling Horrors

Is the world ready for seven straight nights of zombified fun and games?!? It better be, because the GameWick Gang is taking our creepy little zombie card game, Pittsburgh 68, on the road for Shuffling Horror Week! Our tour begins the Saturday before Halloween (Oct 25) and concludes on Halloween. The excitement of the week culminates with games run in the place where American zombie horror began: Pittsburgh, PA!

During this week, our slow moving zombies will shuffle to a different game store each night. All are invited to come by and join in a game session (or even just watch, gasp, and learn).  At certain locations we will run short demo sessions as time allows.

Pittsburgh 68 typically takes an hour and a half to play. It is a zombie horror game, so parental guidance is suggested (in movie terms, the game would probably be rated PG-13). The game and its rules are geared toward mature gamers (who love zombies).

Come on out and have some zombified fun with us!

Saturday-Oct 25: All Things Fun, West Berlin, NJ
This is part of their 24 hour charity event (donation/info here).
Two game sessions scheduled: 8pm and 10pm
