Final Score : Shuffling Horror Week 2018

November 4th, 2018
News, Shuffling Horror Week

Our fifth annual Shuffling Horror Week is in the rearview mirror now, and what a week it was! Games were run all over the place, from NYC to Chicago and a few states in between. All in all, it was a ten game series and the Survivors won a whopping eight games – not a good year for our Directors and Monsters! Here’s some other fun facts:

2018-SH-Halloween-Countdown68–Five different Directors shuffled the horrors: Tracey, Myra, Andy, Donald, and Larry.
–Games were run in four states: NJ, OH, PA, IL.
–The first game in the series was at the Monster Bash Convention in Mars, PA. Appropriately, it was a Roswell 51 game and an alien victory!
–Four games were run by Tracey Puckett and the Dungeons & Coffee crew in Ohio and featured a couple of deck mash-ups! One was a P68/R51 combo called “The Plan 9 Initiative”, and also one the featured our Santa Vs The Space Invaders deck (with Elvis in a special guest appearance).2018-SH-Halloween-51-Countdown
–Two of the craziest combos reported were The Business Man with The BB Gun (in the Plan 9 Santa mash-up) and The Farmer with The Ray Gun (in the War of the Worlds game run in Grover’s Mill).
 –6 out of 10 games ended with a Last One Standing finale. These survivors were: The Robot, The WAC, The Reporter, The Business Man, The Housewife, and The Sheriff.

In every single Last One Standing scenario, the survivor prevailed! What are the odds of that?!?

Are the survivors and players starting to get wise to our monsters’ terrifying tactics?!? Fear not, Directors – next year we will have some Deep Ones in the mix (INNSMOUTH 32 will be released) as well as some other surprise thrills and chills we have in the works!

Thank you to all the Directors and Players who joined us for this series!

We couldn’t do it without you! See you next year…

Shuffling Horror Week 2015: Game 4+5

November 1st, 2015
News, Shuffling Horror Week

Game #4 and #5 of the Zombie World Series 2015 went down at All Things Fun in West Berlin, New Jersey. Going into these final two games, Team Survivor was ahead by a single game. Team Zombie needed back-to-back wins to take the series lead. Here are the highlights from each game.

Game #4 began with The Kid Sister as a zombie appetizer before the game even began. A horrid start! Her demise was due to the Hold Them Back plot device card in the Opening Scene. This gave the players a glimpse on just how brutal The Game Of Shuffling Horror can be. It’s hard to say if this shock galvanized the team, but the Survivors completely annihilated the zombies from that point forward. As soon as the zombies were set up for attack, the team trimmed them back. Sorority Girl + Baseball Bat was shockingly effective, as was The Nurse, who had a knack for rolling Hard Four for her attacks (gaining her a damage bonus). These odd moments made the game so much fun!

SHW-15-Score-41Game #5 was a different story; it ended in the early moments of Reel 3. For most of the game, the Director maintained three healthy zombie throngs. By Reel 3, the Director was five throngs deep. One of the best parts of the game was the story. One player started with The Sorority Girl and then drew the Little Sister and Kid Brother. It was obviously her baby-sitting gig that was about to become a nightmare. She protected the kids as best she could (noting that this was way beyond her $10 an hour rate). In the end, both kids were lost and she found herself the Last One Standing. Somehow, she survived seven zombie attacks, winning one more game for Team Survivor. So much fun, but not for the zombies!

The Game 4 & 5 Recap

Director vs How Many Players: 3 / 2

How Many Reels Played: 4 / 4

Survivors: Almost Everyone! / Only The Sorority Girl.

Who Won: Survivors (both games)

Alternate rules: Survivor Draw Pile, Continuity, and Cover + Attack. Here’s a link to alternate rules info.
