Here are some photos of the official presentation of
AFMBE in the most important summer convention in Spain. In front of
more that 100 persons our translator and myself explained AFMBE as if
it were a survival manual in case of a zombie attack, using a slide
show with shots of the book and the best zombie films. We also
explained the game system and the history of the genre and different
At the end of the session, we surprised the audience
showing a slide of your new president Bush, whom we accused of
bringing into Spain toxic wastes of an unknown origin. Everyone
laughed at the joke, as many had laughed during the whole
presentation. The tongue-in-cheek approach in general proved
successful, since we appeared to be serious about the danger of an attack.
When the show had finished, the audience was surprised
by the attack of 19 zombies, who turned the meeting room upside
down... The zombie then invaded the congress grounds as a whole,
where more that 700 people were playing numerous games and
participating in diverse activities. The zombies interrupted all the
games, disrupted a game of Warhammer knocking the miniatures about,
vomited blood (artificial, fortunately) on D&D character sheets
and in general showed everyone who is who. The attack was well
recieved, everyone enjoyed it (even the Warhammer players!) and the
most important thing is that Zombie:AFMBE was the talk of the weekend
and is present in everyone's mind. We haven't got the photos of the
presentation itself yet. The room was so dark that many didn't turn
out, so we're trying to recover some of them in the dark room.
Anyway, here are some shots of the zombies invading the exterior,
somewhat disorganized as zombies are want to be, but you can
apreciate some details, such as our magnificent zombie bride (after
Day of the Dead).
On the 1st of November, when Zombie:AFMBE in Spanish
is a reality, we plan to do something similar in other conventions,
using a halloween party. Thanks for your time and until our next communication.
