Zombie Mall Play Test

At Historicon in two weeks I’ll be running a zombie game using GASLIGHT set in a shopping mall.  Last night was the play test.

Many of the HAWKs built one or more stores to be assembled into a shopping mall.  From the pictures you can see the different styles and types of stores, from my gaming store to Don’s Pier 7 Imports, Eric’s ice cream store, and Greg’s Asian food restaurant.

Each player controlled a faction, such as The A Team, the Scooby Gang, Cub Scouts, Congressmen, and Sisters of Mercy.  Their goal was “cooperatition,” meaning that the the factions were competing to get the most “treasures” out of the mall, but would often work together to ensure they were not overwhelmed by the zombies.

The game became a chaotic zoo after a while, which is what I wanted.  I think everyone had a good time.  Thanks to all the HAWKs who built stores, and thanks to Bill, Don, and Mike for pushing zombies all evening.
