I have some excuse though - I've pulled a muscle in my back (moving books, naturally) and thus spent a day in bed, and the rest of my time feeling extremely sorry for myself.
However, nice Mr Postman did bring some consolation.
Some of you may remember that back in November 2016 I backed the Midlam Miniatures' Cult of the Kraken Lord Kickstarter. Well, like the previous Midlam Kickstarter I back, these were delivered spot on time.

So I was looking for something simple, fairly self-contained that wasn't too expensive and which was suited to solo play. Warlord Games let you download the rules of Project Z for free and they seem to meet the above criteria. And at the moment if you buy the core box, you get an expansion pack for free (£45.00's worth of game for £30.00). So I watched a couple of YouTube videost and decided it was a good deal.
When I came home this afternoon I found the Red Card of Frustration. Fortunately, in our case it means that the parcel in in the woodpile, so here we are-
As you see, you get a fair bit in the core box, but for Solo play I reckon you need extra Zombies, so for my free box I chose them rather than more survivors.
Sadly, the core set that was sent to me contained the rules and cards in German. I see that this has happened to other people and been resolved quickly, so have every confidence that Warlord will sort it out. I've sent an e-mail and will update you on the results.
But don't worry, I've not sworn off Pulp and Classic Sci-Fi, so stay tuned!
