Custom Gaming: Zombicide – Marvel’s Avengers

There came a day, a day unlike any other, when Earth’s mightiest heroes and heroines found themselves united against a common threat: the undead.

This is the world of Marvel Zombicide.

The biggest question we got as soon as we finished Zombicide: Gotham City was one we were expecting: when are you doing Marvel?

Toss in that it’s almost the 4th of July and I’m left questioning what it means to be an American.

I went all-out and ordered what I’m calling the Captain America Meal – a First Avengers Tri-Cup, a Captain America donut and a Stars and Stripes donut. It’s a sickening display that I can’t even bear to finish.
