We sat down as a family and played this game.

On top of the completely random nature of the game, there's no player interaction.

This is a very fun game that can be played with lots of people.

To start off I am not the sort of person that gets real serious about playing board games and the way they are played. As long as it is fun then I am happy. Secondly I have only seen the first four or five episodes of the Walking Dead and read none of the graphic novels. That being said I was somewhat hesitant playing this the first time with my group because of the miserable time we had playing the other Walking Dead game and the fact I knew so little about the show. Shortly after starting I began to realize this is a very casual game and no knowledge of the books or TV series is necessary. My second observation and perhaps the biggest was just how random the game was. There was very little strategy with the majority of the game being left up to fate. Mainly which character you draw and what events you draw. The main and side characters are definitely not created equal. Some have very big advantages over others. Both the character imbalance and the dependence on luck can be eliminated some through either omission of some rules and creation of "house" rules but I'll leave that up to the forums to discuss and the individual to determine. The last thing I noticed was the game does play very quickly and a player in the lead can easily be eliminated from the game by making the wrong move or drawing the wrong card. The five of us played through three or four times and on average the games lasted about two hours with our longest taking around two and a half.

In summation this game will more likely be enjoyed by the more casual gamer than the more "hardcore" or serious gamer but should not be overlooked.

Verified Purchase
Play this all the time with guys from the local game shop.
Definitely suggest only playing with 4 players and allowing only a new character card being used to come back into the game within the first 5 turns or so. Let the first person have a choice and the second person out in that time gets stuck with the last.
This allows for more competitiveness as too many people makes it feel more like luck, pulling your attention in
too many directions as you're often able to work towards a goal that stops someone else from winning their third location (ie. not letting them have the most resources/followers/wounds/etc).

You can draft the main characters one way and then draft the single followers the other, but there are way too many followers to go through and choosing your follower to stop someone else from creating a combo is often a greater disadvantage to you than it is to the other player.

Drawing completely random main characters keeps it balanced in the sense that everyone has to be mindful of the limitations of the character they get. The only choice being for the first person out in the first 5 turns helps balance out the handicap of being 5 turns behind. The 5 turn limit is there to make taking a new character a way to counter a simple bad luck streak early in the game (losing your only follower in one encounter and then having to beat a number of zombies you have no chance of beating for instance).

Once you bring your resources up a bit and/or gain a second follower... there really is no reason your character should die with careful management.

The other TWD game is very different, but also very enjoyable. Much easier to learn and faster paced, but with the same careful choices, resource management, and survival mentality thrown in.

I am a zombie genre fan, preferring the shambling zombies of Romero, and the Walking Dead AMC series. Recently I've been spending a great deal of time, almost nightly, playing board games, as I've become almost entirely home bound due to an illness. When I saw this game, I was sold in seconds. I didn't bother reading up on it, I was sold by concept, and the over all quality that has been given to the Walking Dead series of products. I purchased this the day of release, so reviews were not available. It was a risk, and, to sum it up, a failed risk. I do not recommend this game, and I'll attempt to give a few key points on what they did well, and how they failed.

The art work is fantastic! I liked the quality of pieces as well.
Setup was moderate - I'm used to German style games, such as Agricola and Dominion, so this wasn't too much to ask. The worst part was having to turn over 70 small round zombie pieces so that the number side, that which should randomly dictate how many zombies are in a group, was down. This felt familiar, so I pushed on.
The basic concept is to attempt to find three locations of refuge about the board. During which you pick up fellow survivors to assist, adding some abilities and dice for your rolls. Your rolls require you to take special dice with faces representing "actions", "zombie kills", or a wild symbol, which fills in for one of the two based on the need of the roll. There is also a special cheat dice you can use based on your groups abilities, or use of ammo resource. Conceptually, sounds great. You wonder around the hexagonal map in search of either one of the three resources: ammo, gas, and good, or locations to call home (three for a game victory, if you meet their challenges), you leave a wake of zombie tokens on each hex-space.
