The Doomsday Device is ticking and neither the Allies nor the Axis can fail.

Take the basic systems from Space Hulk, add a bunch of unique, very cool characters and some Battle cards for variety, and set it in a ‘weird war’ alternative WWII-with-zombies, and you’ve got Incursion, the fantastic boardgame from Grindhouse Games. Amazingly, this top-quality game is self-published, and the hard work and dedication really shows in the final product. Plus it’s a hell of a lot of zombie-blastin’ fun! The final nail in the decision-to-play coffin are the sets of metal miniatures they sell separately, which are beautifully made and dripping with character.

Incursion is an incredibly fun combat game set in the kind of alternative WWII-with-zombies familiar to readers of Hellboy, with a bit of a grungy Tarantino feel thrown in for good measure. In Incursion power-armoured US grunts go toe-to-toe with Nazi zombies, the vicious Blitzhund, and the bizarre results of secret experiments gone wrong. Throw in a deck of Battle cards and you have a fast-moving, tactical, thematic gaming experience.

The latest version of my summary and reference sheets (I designed the one that comes with the game) includes the rules and abilities for everything that’s been released.
