Zone d'Exclusion Africaine: A Zona Alfa Variant
« on: July 24, 2022, 05:16:56 AM »
So I've decided to take a break from historicals and dip my toe into the post-apocalyptic pool with Zona Alfa. Since all my modern figures are for Africa, I've decided to deviate from the Eastern European setting and move everything to Mali. If interested, I've created a dossier on my event's background and creatures, which can be found on the blog.

Thanks!
Chris

Pretty cool.

Thanks Everyone!  Hopefully we'll get in our first test game next month so we can see how it plays.

An interesting take on the game. I'll look forward to some follow-ups. The figures are very nicely done

I agree with the others...this is a very cool idea. I enjoy seeing all the various settings people create for their ZA games. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks again everyone!  The last bits on order will hopefully arrive soon so we can get started with our pilot games.

Question (and please pardon my ignorance): Is Zona Alfa anything like premise of the 2010 film Monsters?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monsters_(2010_film)

Or perhaps the 2020 Netflix film Love and Monsters?

Thanks!

The rules are pretty loosely written without too much fluff on what the nature of the zone is.  Just that it's a hostile place with dangerous people and creatures of unspecified origin (nuclear disaster, alien landing, dimensional rift) and people go into it to hunt for artifacts.  So I think you could adapt it to that movie's premise without a problem. When talking to the creator on Facebook, his goal seems to be providing a basic rules framework and for people to use their own creativity in what they do with it.
