Everyone loves The Walking Dead these days. The series on AMC was well received and we're all stuck waiting until October when the second season begins.
We still have our monthly doses of Robert Kirkman's series to keep us entertained but what about those looking for more?
It's already been announced that Telltale Games will be putting out an episodic adventure game slated for Q4 of this year. What if we can't wait until later this year for more Walking Dead fun?
Last week it was announced that Skybound and Z-Man Games are teaming up launch a 'The Walking Dead' board game. It's set to arrive in late summer 2011 and will give players the chance to play as Rick, Shane, Andrea and other members of 'Team Grimes' as they deal with zombies, collect supplies and pick up the pieces of their lives.
Game designer Keith Tralins said the following:
I've always loved board games, but never knew they could be this cool! We've done test plays of The 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.
No other information has been released besides being designed and developed by MegaGigaOmniCorp, Inc. and To Be Continued, LLC; set for 1-6 players aged 13+ and have a retail price of $39.99. Z-Man Games has also put out games like Agricola and Pandemic so that might give you an idea on how the gameplay might be.
What are your thoughts on a 'The Walking Dead' board game? How do you think the gameplay should be designed. I think we're going to have to look into picking this game up when it's released and play it in the office...to let you guys know how it is, of course.
