Nerds on Earth posts Dead of Winter: Board Game Review

Nerds on Earth has posted a review of Plaid Hat Games’ new Dead of Winter board game.

Dead of Winter


From the post:

I’m here to tell you that you and a few friends can gather around your dining room table, play with some cardboard zombies, and have a wonderful time. Plaid Hat Games have released Dead of Winter, a board game where your goal is to survive a harsh winter during a zombie apocalypse.

The objective of Dead of Winter is to survive both the harsh winter elements and the attacking zombie hordes, and players are cooperating to achieve this objective…kinda. The problem is that while all players are working toward a shared objective, each player also has a secret personal objective that may or may not put them at odds with the group. Oh, did I mention that there is also a chance that one player might be an outright traitor?
