Walking Dead has not just dominated the TV ratings, it’s also had a major influence on zombie games. While older games focused on the immediate survival, games now are about the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse: gathering supplies and lasting for the long term. Apocalypze is the most recent zombie game to be as much about gathering supplies as killing zombies. Despite the larger scope, Apocalypze keeps things simple enough, with plenty of zombie killing to go along with the survival, and manages it in a “build your deck” design.
In the olden days of gaming, and I mean the really olden days of medieval times, playing games was serious business. The Church felt that such idle pastimes were the tools of the devil, especial “devil games” that involved cards–playing these games endangered your very soul! Players of this religion-dominated era just went with the flow and made cards games with religious themes. Battle for Souls is a modern game based on the rules of a (presumably similar) medieval card game of dragging souls down to Hell or lifting them up to Heaven.

Magic: The Gathering (M:TG) is the kind of game you can play seriously for years. This is a good thing, as the more you play, the more cards you have, giving you more ways to beat your opponents. A newcomer to the game, however, is often hopelessly overmatched when he comes to a hobby shop or online, as his paltry collection of a 100 cards or less is no match for the 10,000+ card collections typical for a veteran.

Magic: The Gathering (M:TG) is a huge game, with literally thousands of creatures and spells. While its original design even worthing of a patent or two, ultimately it’s always been a fairly derivative game. I mean, the top monsters are vampires, dragons, and goblins…you don’t have to know much fantasy lore to be familiar with THOSE guys. If I had a vote for the most uniquely iconic creature of M:TG, it would go to slivers.
