If you’ve watched the TV series ‘The Walking Dead‘ and read the books, then you might want to consider the ‘The Walking Dead‘ board game. This means placing your Xbox 360 controller down and playing games the old fashioned way.
In Cryptozoic’s The Walking Dead Board Game, players assume the roles of their favorite characters from the TV series battling the Walkers to survive in a post-apocalyptic, zombie-infested world. The game includes a fascinating mechanic – players start off as humans fending off the zombies, but if they do succumb and become a brain-eater, the game is not necessarily over for them. Players who become zombies can cooperate with others who have been infected and team up against the remaining “human” characters in the game. Cryptozoic’s The Walking Dead Board Game is designed for 2-4 players, ages 13 and up, and it takes between 25 and 60 minutes to play. Available from tfaw for $35.99.
