Shuffling Dead: Walking Dead S7 E4 Review

November 18th, 2016

Our weekly Walking Dead Three Card Zombie Review!

In “Service” (S7 E4), Negan comes a-knocking at the gates of Alexandria for his first “payment”. He takes all the guns, leaving Rick and the crew without any firepower. That’s a pretty cruel move on Negan’s part – can you imagine playing Pittsburgh 68 without a single gun in the deck?!? In fact, Negan takes sooooo many guns that we had to raid the Roswell 51 card deck just to make the point. So, this week’s Three Card Zombie Review includes a little bonus sneak peek at the new R51 card design. Enjoy!

November 10th, 2016

The Walking Dead Three Card Zombie Review!

In “The Cell” (S7 E3), Daryl finds himself trapped in The Cell(er) being pushed to his Breaking Point by Dwight. He decides to make a Run For It, but fails, and takes a heap of damage from the Saviours (he has got to be out of spoints by now). On a side note, our zombie Bev has been humming the “Easy Street” song all week…

Deryk, Bev, and Ocho, our undead review trio, sum it all up with these three Pittsburgh 68 cards:

November 2nd, 2016

It’s time for our Walking Dead Three Card Zombie Review!

In The Well (Episode 2), Carol awakens in a new place called the Kingdom, a happily-ever-after renaissance faire that is well-fed and zombie free! While its residents are all too willing to drink from the proverbial well and follow-the-leader (King Ezekial), Carol knows that this fantasyland just won’t last. She wants to arm herself and quickly get the heck out of there.

Deryk, Bev, and Ocho, our undead review trio, sum it all up with these three Pittsburgh 68 cards:

The Housewife (Carol), If We Only Had A…, and The Knife.

Shuffling Dead: The Walking Dead Season 7 Premiere

October 27th, 2016

Deryk, Bev, and Ocho (our trio of Pittsburgh 68 shufflers) are trying something new for their Walking Dead episode reviews this season: they will sum up each episode with three cards from the Pittsburgh 68 playing deck.  Here’s their first “three card review” of that brutal Season 7 opener: The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be.

(They all think The Bat is going to be pretty prominent this season…)

Dead Don’t Walk: Zombie Radio Waves (S5.E9)

February 12th, 2015

“Dead Don’t Walk” is our weekly Walking Dead recap
for fans of our Shuffling Horror: Pittsburgh 68 game.

Season 5, Episode 9
What Happened and What’s Going On

Rick Grimes and friends are back on the road with a mission to find a new sanctuary: a fabled housing community that is some 500 miles from Atlanta. As we all know, such a sanctuary card does not exist in the Shuffling Horror deck! After an uneventful ride in The Car, the survivors arrive at  a quiet little gated community (albeit a fortified one). It’s a bit too quiet, and they soon make some grisly discoveries (like everyone is dead or pulled in half). The deck deals them some Lone Zombies shuffling about, but nothing that can’t be controlled. It’s a low danger reel.

(C) 2014 GameWick Games LLCBack-to-back plot device cards appear: If We Only Had A…, which sends off Rick, Glenn, and Michonne to find supplies and weapons. Glenn finds The Bat!  Noah hits his Breaking Point and runs off. Tyreese follows and the deck deals the Director a Surge. The Director focuses all these attacks on Tyreese, who <encoded spoiler> “fails to flail”.

Yup – the big guy has been bit! As Tyreese loses strength, Noah runs back to alert the group. In his delirium, Tyreese sees lots of Familiar Faces (like every survivor who bit it in the last two seasons) and they’re all offering him some final words of advice. Some point out that maybe he should have used more spoints for his flail test. Others tell him that he did everything he could and it will all be all right.

The episode ends with the group rushing Tyreese back to The Car and driving off into the sunset.

Will resting in The Car help Tyreese at this point?

You’ll have to watch the episode to see how this reel ends…
