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.
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.
The game plays out like a zombie apocalypse would. Sometimes you are dealt a really terrible pairing of main character/ follower and then you have to kill 7 zombies and you are dead by your first turn. Other times you may accumulate and awesome team of followers and scout the world and slay all the zombies. It involves dice and cards, so it really is a game of chance. The only educational aspect of this game is to teach you that life is not fair and if you don't surround yourself by useful people with gun skills, you are surely a goner at the end of the world.
The game itself is sturdy and all the pieces are of good quality. There is one problem with the bases of the starting characters though. My friend also has this game and the bases to the characters that you move around the board slowly all fell off and became impossible to reattach without glue. My pieces are starting to do the same. Dale was the first to lose his legs (fitting I suppose, if you are a fan of the comics). ;)
The sheer volume of pieces involved in this game is kind of a hassle for cleanup purposes. There are markers for damage, supplies, characters, and zombies. Then there are encounter cards, starting character cards, follower cards, and location cards. The are no sorting devices included with this game so we have amassed a lot of Ziploc baggies and rubber bands for organization.
This is a great social game...assuming your friends watch The Walking Dead, read the comics, or are zombie nerds in general. It is fun if you know the characters. We make lots of jokes and root for certain character to succeed or fail their encounters. Overall, a great deal of fun to be had.

Fun, kinda vague on some things, worth it. Manufacturer cheaped out on the packaging though. The box isn't deep enough for all the items, so lid is ajar. Read morePublished 15 months ago by countess bathory
