The Walking Dead Board Game is a game based on AMC's The Walking Dead. It was released in 2011 and designed by Cory Jones and developed by Cryptozoic Entertainment. Unlike the comic series version of The Walking Dead: The Board Game, this game is for 2 to 4 players, ages 13 and older. The average play time is about 60 minutes. [2] The game was designed by Cory Jones.[1]


The game only allows the strong to survive and 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 survival skills and fight to live another day. [3]
