The Walking Dead: The Board Game is a family game developed by Z-Man Games, which is based on Image Comics' The Walking Dead. It was designed by Brian David-Marshall, Keith Tralins and Matthew Wang, with artists Charlie Adlard and Jason Greeno.[1] The game was released in 2011 for 1 to 6 players. The game has a playing time of 30 minutes and is recommended for ages 13 and up.[2]


A preview of the board game explained:

It is widely accepted that it is a good idea for families to do activities together. Robert Kirkman is all about family values, just look at his recently released comic Super Dinosaur. Now Kirkman is doing his part in not only bringing families together, but also preparing them for the inevitable zombie apocalypse. His hit comic book and television series, The Walking Dead, is being made into a board game!
"The Walking Dead board game is for players 13 and up, so another mystery is how graphic this game will be. Anybody who has read The Walking Dead comics knows that it is not exactly appropriate for 13 year olds. I would assume that the language would definitely be toned down for the game, as F-Bombs aren’t great for family togetherness. Since it is a game about zombies there will most certainly be some violence, but I also expect the level of violence and gore to be toned down from the comic. Otherwise this game is geared toward some hardcore 13 year olds. I also don’t expect the zombies to be the only threat in this game, as that is just not Robert Kirkman’s style. What other insidious threats await players? One thing I think we all really hope to get from this game is a comprehensive survival plan to survive a zombie invasion. This game could save your life."[3]
