In summer 2011 American fans of classic board games were confronted by the result of a very special cooperation: Z-Man Games and Robert Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment presented The Walking Dead Board Game. Fans of the series suddenly had the chance to dive into the world and adventures of Rick, Shane, Andrea and many more of the comic series’ characters. The developer’s main goal: to give players a feeling of how living in a world like that, with a bunch of zombies at your heels really might feel like. Robert Kirkman himself was impresse by the result: “I've always loved board games, but never knew they could be this cool! We've done test plays of The Walking Dead board game at the office, and the game play scenarios ring true to what Rick and the other survivors face in the comic book. I couldn't be more impressed with Z-Man Games.”
And of course the game is distributed in an English version in Germany as well. So: join the universe of Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead! In a world full of zombies you can work out your strategy for survival, fight angainst the undead and secure your own survival by finding and collecting supplies and all the other little things you desperately need in life. You start out with only one companion, but as your journey goes on some more people will join you. While you escape from zombie hordes and search for peace and quiet, you will also have to find sufficient supplies and the most secure places. You can act as a team of up to six players or – if you prefer hardcore style, or don’t have any friends – fight the undead all by your lone wolf lonesome. Playing modes are „Solitair“, „Cooperative“, or „Player-vs-Player “.
