Hit Z Road Board Game - £7.99 delivered @ Groupon

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Seems to be a neat looking resource bidding survival game.
Also available for £10.69 on Amazon but the next cheapest seems to be around £25.
Groupon may have a discount code for new users to make it 20% cheaper.
Amazon also has £6 bonus credit for topping your account up £50 which helps a little long term (especially for board games).
Personally I went with Amazon for ease and having credit on already.

Edit: "Free shipping on groupon today with the code NOCHARGE so makes the game just £7.99"

Oh man, this is really testing my "no new games in 2020 resolve!". This one has always looked fun... very well regarded designer, and the art design is brilliant: The idea is that the game has been pieced together by a kid after a zombie apocalypse out of parts of other games. So all the cards etc look like cards from other well known games but with bits pasted or written on to them. Very neat. Great deal.

This is a great game if you want something between a filler and a more serious game. One of my most played of last year. Definately helps if you're into Zombies somewhat but not essential. The design and art is all amazing. I'd rather have this than (barely) a meal out certainly.

I'd also been trying not to buy games for a bit after the black friday/festive splurge.... It's not going well
Nice! Looking forward to trying this!
Have played this one 4 or 5 times now. For the price it’s a no brainer. One of the better 4 player games I tried last year! The components are lovely and the game has been fun every time it makes it back the table!

Maybe I am playing it wrong, but every time we have played it, the difficulty just ramps up towards the end and no one survives. Also, I am not a fan of having the die decide my fate. Too random for me.

Maybe I need to try it a few more times...
I really like this game. @solid the key is don't bid unless you really have to because if you all go mad on the bidding then as you say you probably won't make the end; this is the puzzle element with a little bit of maths to weigh up resources spent (bid) vs resources gained on the route you'll take (or get.) We've played about 5 or 6 times and always at least 2 of us got to the last route section, with a winner about half the time. There are random elements but the game is pretty short so a bit of 'luck factor' adds to the tension e.g. watching in astonishment as a fellow player throws caution to the wind and beats off a load of zombies with only 1 survivor is great, even though you're playing against them. Production and design are excellent.

Bargain price, no brainer (so no food for the zombies hehe.) A great post for your first deal post @Sushuun
Thanks - gone for this

Don't tell your family/friends and you'll storm a win (unless unlucky with dice like me - my mates call me "Wheaton" whenever we place dice games )
How is this available for £7.99?

Lowest I can get is £9.18 using WELCOME with a new account.
(also possible 6% TCB).

FYI there's at least one seller on ebay offering it for £9.99

I believe the way the titles been listed means it's 7.99 or 9.98 including delivery. When posting I put the price as 9.98. You can also get money off for being a new customer to Groupon but I didn't really look into it as I can't be bothered to make a new account etc.
I believe a lot of the time if you use a discount in conjunction with TCB it invalidates it too, but it's worth a shot
Great price, but I don't need any more games...
Do I?
Fantastic game for a tenner, absolute bargain. Played a few times and really enjoyed each play especially with 4 players.

Just keep telling yourself that buddy

Yes.

This one in particular.
got this last time it was on deal and certainly worth it for a tenner - great art, nice pieces. 2player rules and victory conditions took a little figuring out but was fun, balanced and quite tense at the end of the game. simple to learn, quick to play.
khimbar111/02/2020 16:23

Yes.This one in particular.


Haha we shall see. Although if I was getting a zombie game it would probably be Dead of Winter. I do enjoy that.
Is this any good with 2 players?

Is this any good with 2 players?



played my first game with 2 and, as someone mentioned above, you should probably largely ignore the bidding mechanics as you get 3 paths to choose between 2 players (unless the gain outweighs the loss). still got pretty tight at the end as both players were low on resources and losing survivors fast so the end-of-game points scoring came secondary to just getting to finish line.
I got this the other week and had 2 play throughs with the missus... can confirm it’s great fun, brilliantly designed and not ridiculously intense. Can’t wait to try it out with the lads next board game night
Anyone received shipping notice or anything?

Cheers, I've added it to the post
Wish I'd got this for £7.99 but played this tonight and it's great fun even at a tenner. Simple, pretty luck driven but both me and the wife enjoyed it, so it'll see the table again!
