The World of SMOG: Rise of Moloch

Kickstarter has been especially kind to us at Meeple Watching of late.  At the start of the week we received Zombicide, Black Plague: Green Horde¹ to much excitement. This was just the base game, with extras, add-ons and  silly stretch goals arriving over the next few months, but all in all it looks like what we've already... Continue Reading →
