Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The Best Defense is a cooperative board game in which players take on the roles of Rick, Glenn, Daryl, Michonne and other characters. The Survivors must defend four key locations from Walkers - the Farm, the Prison, the Town and the Highway - in order to stay alive. The game board is assembled at random for each game, providing for variability in the locations; a 25-card resource deck - containing either Equipment, Allies, Food or Ammunition - is placed at random on one of the locations. Walkers and other calamities are triggered in different locations by a 48-card event deck (every card is unique.), which players draw from each round. They must then figure out how to minimize the effects of these events, using dice to resolve combat and determine the outcome of some events. Survivors can work together to combine their combat abilities or split up to cover more ground. If the Survivors don't clear the Walkers out of a location, they'll lose resources - and if any resource deck runs out, the players lose the game. Thus, players need to keep the Walkers at bay while not using up too many resources themselves. Unlike most cooperative games, The Walking Dead Board Game: The Best Defense includes a leadership role that player can take for one or more rounds - or even the entire game, if others allow him to do so. Each player character has a unique leadership ability that provides a bonus while that character is in charge.

Product Description

In this co-operative board game, players take on the roles of Rick, Glenn, Daryl, Michonne, and other characters from the hit AMC TV series The Walking Dead! When playing The Walking Dead Best Defense Board Game, the survivors are on the hunt for walkers and must defend 4 key locations in order to stay alive. Using oversized location tiles, the map board is built at random in each game, providing great replayability.

This game is super fun to play.

If you want a casual coop game--something four people can sit around and jaw while they're playing--this isn't a bad choice.

I really enjoyed this game. Having played the first one, I was really excited when I saw another Walking Dead game had come out from Cryptozoic. The theme matched the point in the show perfectly! The survivors, now have to work together to keep their dwindling resources safe while the zombie hoards keep coming.

We played a few games and got a variety of different outcomes. We had easy victories, hard victories, and just plain out defeat as the zombies overwhelmed us. I really enjoyed the aspect of how the event deck played out: Each player getting two cards and then the leader having to make the best possible choice to where to allocate the survivors, playing of the event cards, and seeing if good choices or bad choices were made (without players sharing knowledge on what is on their cards).

So if you're a fan of The Walking Dead or survival horror board games I would 100% back the purchase of this game.

First off this game is one of the greatest games which I have ever purchased!!! Completely cooperative with a twist you take on the role of one of the main characters from the show.
The object of the game is to survive, you must ensure you strategically plan your moves and those of the other survivors if you are the leader. You must protect the four locations on the board, including your supplies. When the supplies located at the four locations are gone you are in serious trouble.
The game is played in 12 rounds if a survivor dies they can replace this character with one of the remaining survivors unless you choose to play the expert version. This game is complicated and extremely high energy a must for all walking dead fans!! Or those who enjoy in depth strategic planning board games!!

This game is very fun. It's best played with four people, although can be played alone or with one or two other people.

This game requires a lot of strategy and will take about an hour to finish, if you play your cards right. The game can be super hard. I've played it with friends a few times and also alone and I was not able to finish the game without having all my players turned into zombies.

The art on the cards is nice. The construction is sturdy and the box helps to organize all the components.

If you are a walking dead fan and you enjoy strategy games, this is for you.

A very great board game, even if you happen to not be a fan of the show. Lots of strategy involved, with rules and gameplay from beginner to very advanced. Simple to learn and will have you playing for hours.

When I ordered this, I thought it was going to be a good way to get a little Walking Dead fix between seasons. Well, it is that and more. This has become a favorite game to play in the family, and has amazingly good replay value.

As you play it will become obvious that some characters provide better perks than others, and you learn which situations will lead to a serious challenge to overcome. Whether the game is a calm walk in the park, an overwhelming swarm of walkers or somewhere in between, it is always fun to play, and then try 'just one more time'.

I've not played with 4 people but it is a great 2 person game and the collaborative aspect of it is very well done. Even if you haven't seen The Walking Dead, this is a great game to have!

My gaming group loves to play cooperative games, and we all love The Walking Dead, this was a natural choice. The game plays great and the feeling of dread as the walker horde builds makes the experience really dramatic. We had a lot of fun.
