Still flat-out at work, what with it being the busiest week of the year in terms of teaching hours for me, but I did manage to take time out on Sunday to go to a beer festival, and while I was at it, get a couple of my non-gaming friends introduced to Zombicide.  This is a very much tongue-in-cheek boardgame pitting the players ("survivors") against swarms of game-controlled zombies.

The game comes with 70-odd plastic minis, which is one of the reasons it also comes with a rather hefty price tag...

The photo is courtesy of one of my friends who is keen to have some more games - we couldn't play all that much given our kids running around, and other people muscling in on our precious table space under the shade (it was over 30 degrees, so being out in the sun would have been death).

The minis are begging to be painted up properly, but that of course means I now have the makings of a plastic pile to complement the lead mountain sitting in the bottom of my gaming cupboards.  Such is the price of progress, I suppose!
