Prepare To Dice: Chainsaw Warrior

Leatherwarface.

Auroch Digital's adaptation of Chainsaw Warrior has arrived on Steam. I hadn't heard of the game until the digital version was announced but I don't think I'm alone in having this particular gap in my Games Workshop knowledge. It's a solo card game, in which the player must save New York from the 'orrible monsters that are spilling through a dimensional tear in Manhattan. Encounter cards are drawn from a deck, and usually involve a zombie or a mutant that requires a swift chainsaw to the face. Every action takes up 30 seconds of in-game time and when a full hour has passed, Darkness consumes the city. Devilishly difficult, it seems a game of luck and theme rather than skill and strategy. Trailer below.

I just had a quick go and a martial artist agent of chaos stabbed me to death. I'd sawed a few zombies into their second death by that point. Is a chainsaw really an effective weapon for mass zombie slaughter? I imagine the machinery would get gummed up by all the guts.
