Some Survivors suspected that the zombie outbreak was the military’s fault; some chemical or biological weapon experiment gone awry. Now, they’ve found themselves on the grounds of Fort Hendrix. Penny, another Survivor, is trying to get in, desperate to find her mother who lost somewhere on the base. It’s going to be a challenge, but every life needs to be spared in this world. Wait, is that zombie holding a gun?
Fort Hendrix is a new expansion coming for Zombicide 2nd Edition. Players make their way to the Fort Hendrix military base, going through the 10 interlocking missions. There are six new Survivors to choose from, each one highly-trained, with new skills to match. Many of their skills utilize the All-Out rules for equipment. These Survivors know how to use their equipment to the fullest in order to make it out of a combat zone alive.
Fort Hendrix uses the campaign rules like the Washington expansion, with players earning Experience as they progress along. Experience can be traded in for learning new Skills at the Blue level. So, the next mission, they will already have extra abilities to help them continue surviving. Some pieces of equipment can also be kept between scenarios. This can really give players a leg-up when it comes to arming themselves for the next batch of zombies. It also uses the Night rules, with players sometimes delving into the dead of night, when zombies might creep out of the shadows or hide from attacks in the dark.
Speaking of zombies, this expansion introduces the new Shooter Walkers. They are zombified military personnel who still have their weapons on them. While the zombie plague has caused them to lose their fine marksmanship skills they had when alive, there is still some level of training ingrained in their rotting brains. As such, they’ll occasionally take shots at Survivors. When players flip the Zombie Shoot card from the deck, all Shooter Walkers will fire at the closest Survivors, automatically dealing them a wound. And you thought their bite was bad enough!
This new expansion has plenty to keep players on their toes. Will they manage to find Penny’s mom? Can they stay away from any bullets coming their way from the zombies? Will they survive through the night? That’s all up to you to find out.
