I really like most of this game, however those door tokens are really difficult to use due to how dark they are. It isn’t immediately clear if a door is open or closed. I’ve even thought about creating door standees, but wanted to have your thoughts first.

Unfortunately I didn’t have the foresight to back the 3D terrain KS exclusive upgrade (and its super expensive on eBay).

Does anyone have any suggestions for either alternative tokens or other 3D doors that scale with the game?

You can find tons of 3D tokens for various game elements there and other stuff.

Maybe someone can update the things here I don’t have face book . I don’t have the game yet ! I just read a great review for the game . The reviewer mentioned how bad the doors were even though he gave the game a lot of love ! The door issue seems to be a common problem ! I’m hoping I can use the extra doors I don’t need for sword and sorcery! How many doors will I need ?

Should be able to pick up a set of Zombicide doors. The resident evil add on has 20 doors I believe the Zombicide pack has 27.

Also good luck finding those zombicide doors. I've been looking everywhere for a good batch of 3d doors with no luck. You can find some of the resident evil ones for around $50 on ebay however. I'm probably just gonna suck it up until someone produces some more 3d doors down the road.

I will just have to pull them from another game . I just wish they would of showed up the tokens before hand . If I knew they were going to be garbage I would of ordered the door . After this game I don’t have to worry about it .

Agreed. Why SFG’s quality control thought the dark artwork and glossy tiles/tokens was acceptable I’ll never know!

From what i've seen the door tokens and the wall pieces need replaced badly.

I’m still waiting in the us . It’s sad when you spend this much money and the tokens are so poorly made!

I'm also interested.

Played the game the first time yesterday and the overall quality of the game other than the minis were atrocious. Almost all dice lacked some color, warped tiles and cards.

Worst of all is the fact that someone at SFG honestly thought that making tokens so dark it's almost impossible to see what they are was a good idea. We could barely hold our laughter over how dark everything is

Also what really pisses me off is the game is ready to buy at the online boardgame stores and all the us bakers are still waiting for their copies . This is my 2nd project and it’s my last with this company!

There is a real shortage of 'modern' looking 3-D doors on the secondary market.

the Modern Zombicide doors were KS Exclusive and sells for like $90, but you get a HUGE number of doors.

The RE2 doors are again KS exclusive and likely the #1 secondary market want now that folks have seen that the door tokens are pretty much like cardboard scraps you would toss- completely useless.

I can easily see the RE2 doors climbing near the $80+ market in a few weeks. The o backe3rs that got them likely got a copy for themselves so the extras floating round will dry up shortly.

I like the idea, but only one side of the table will be able to see the card.

They really did drop the ball though with the doors.

I'm currently working on a 3d printable door and wall solution (one that will allow you to put walls around all of your tiles, if you're so inclined). I've got the walls working pretty well at this point and am currently printing my first door prototype... I'll post on this forum when it's ready!
