Thread: Zeppelin game

  1. #1

    Default Zeppelin game

    I was on the Miniature Market site and saw this game so I went to COMPASS GAMES to look at it more. Here is the link to the game. Its a solo game but can have more then one player.

    As you can see the site has it as a pre order for $57.00. On Miniature Market it is $67.

    Looks interesting, if its already available I'll likely get it, if its a kick no starter I likely will not . . .

    It has been on my radar for some days, Bob.
    I have recently purchased "Nightfighter Ace" solo boardgame and this one should pair nicely with the latter...

    Read a review of the game on BGG - one of the rep. gamer criticized it for flaws and contradictions between rules and tables. The game put him off in spite of the fact he loves similar "hunter" type products, like "Nightfighter Ace".

    The author of the game uploads any necessary corrections and files on BGG. A big plus for him. I think I may give this game a chance.
    After reading "Zeppelin Fighters" is a kind of must have and play....

    I have a copy that I pre-ordered. I've played a couple of missions so far and I'm still learning it, but I have to agree with some of the negative points of that one BGG review.
    I find that ZR consists of a lot of rolling dice and looking up the results in various tables. It's really more of a simulation than a game, and not a particularly exciting one at that.

    I'll keep at it, but so far it's not what I'd hoped for.

    Thanks for the info Bruce. I never heard of the game that's why I posted this.
