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!
Cryptozoic’s The Walking Dead Board Game appeals to a larger audience. It’s light mechanics and connection to a mega popular tv series make it the kind of game that will bring new gamers to table.
What is a Dead Board?
Unfortunately, there are a couple of complaints as well. The luck and random factor on the game is pretty high. From the chance zombie tokens to the random encounter cards, it gets a bit challenging to do any real strategy and ends up boiling down to hoarding supplies, praying for a favorable card, and hoping the dice rolls in favor of surviving the location challenges (though that seems how a real zombie apocalypse would play out.) It’s also easy to memorize the limited location challenges on repeat plays, and instead of sweeping through the board looking for safety, an experienced player could just go straight to where they know they could win, creating a bit of a curve. Still, THE WALKING DEAD BOARD GAME game is a fun way to spend a couple hours while waiting for new issues and new episodes.
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.
