While walking around WonderCon, one of our guys on the scene Steve Sievers snapped us a few shots inside the box of Cryptozoic Entertainment’s The Walking Dead themed board game which came out around the beginning of the year. Being that we’ve only ever seen the box art, we figured, hey, why not?
In The Walking Dead Board game, only the strong survive. The weak turn into walkers, and then turn against their former friends! Fight your way through zombie-infested Atlanta with your fellow survivors. Grab some weapons to clear a path. Visit destinations like the department store, the police station, old folk’s home, and the CDC. Find the tools you’ll need to live another day like weapons, allies, a car, or a swift mount. Take on the role of Rick, Andrea, or one of the other hapless survivors and scrounge for sweet weapons like a Shotgun or Crossbow. Keep your eyes open for new allies, but watch your back! When supplies start running low, it’s every man for himself. If you can make it back to camp with enough gear to defend yourself and those you still care for, you win!
Should you fall to the hungry horde of walkers, the game doesn’t end. When a player dies and becomes a walker, they leave the world of the living behind and seek out the remaining survivors. Spring surprise attacks on the living, cause the walkers to frenzy, or contaminate the survivor’s supplies. Put the bite on your former friends and they’ll join you in your pursuit of the living. As a survivor, you’ll work as a team with your remaining buddy to ensure the camp site stays protected. Share weapons and other resources. The fate of the human race is in your hands, either as a survivor or a walker. Test your surival skills and fight to live another day with The Walking Dead Board Game from Cryptozoic Entertainment.
