Unboxing Fireteam Zero

Fireteam Zero is a game that I watched on Kickstarter and became very interested in recently. Thematically, the theme fits Must Contain Minis very well. It looks cool, contains minis, and combines World War 2 with a horror twist into a board game. I am already loving the idea of where this game might take us!!!

The Cover Art of Fireteam Zero is beautiful!
Today's post focuses only on the unboxing of the game. Looking closer at the miniatures and a review of the game will come in the future.

A big thank you goes out to Emergent Games for sending this review copy of the game along with a couple of expansions. Before opening the box, I want to show my readers how big this box truly is. Check out Fireteam Zero alongside Imperial Assault. Wow!

Fireteam Zero comes in a huge box. Check it out beside Imperial Assault!

I was shocked and pleasantly surprised by just how large the game is.

The size difference is striking. Fireteam Zero comes in a large and pretty package. Is it as nice on the inside? Let's take a look.
Fireteam Zero Miniatures box
First up is the box of miniatures inside the box. The box is very pretty despite some areas with some wear.

And the Minis!!! Very nicely packaged.

The miniatures are interesting and the dice are fairly large.

The game also comes with three larger miniatures.
So far, this game looks very good, so I continued looking through the box.

This I did not expect. There is a soundtrack CD and a great insert for your cards.

The tokens fit in nice and there is more than enough space for all of the cards in this box.

Having gone through the cards, lets take a look at the game tiles.

Taking a look at the gaming tiles. The tiles are as big as the box.

The opposite side of the tile. It is nice that they are double-sided.

A coin in a board game?
This coin also comes in the box and plays a role in the game related to the players' health and win conditions. I will have to look further into the coin when I go to play the game.

Outside of the base game, Emergent Games also sent me two expansions. The first is a deck of cards that expands the missions in the game and the second is a set of Monsters.

Fireteam Zero Mission pack expansion
Here we have the Mission Pack Generator expansion.

I opened up the box but don't want to give away what all is in the box. Above is the description on the pack.

One cool thing that I noticed is that this expansion fits right into the base game insert.

Monster pack
Here we have a Picture of the second expansion that Emergent Games sent. This is their "Monster Pack A."

Miniatures!
Looks interesting. We will take a closer look at the minis in a future post.

Overall, this game looks pretty cool and comes in a very nice package. The minis look great and the art work is fantastic. The theme is also right up my alley. Emergent Games certainly did well on presentation!

I still have to read the rules, but I find that rules can be a personal thing. Some people like short and simple rules while others like the rules to be long and complex. This game's rules are short at 10 pages in length.

My next post about this game will take a closer look at the miniatures and, after a few plays, I will post a review.

Until next time, Happy Gaming Everyone!!!

Discloser: Emergent Games provided Must Contain Minis with a Review Copy of Fireteam Zero and two of its expansions.
