Well, it’s happened again. The world’s come to an end. Damnit, Carl, I told you to not eat that tainted meat! Now there’s zombies all over everywhere! Though I’m sure, to the vast majority of you, The Walking Dead TV series on AMC certainly needs no introduction. You know all about the exploits of the small group of survivors, trying to stay one step ahead of the zombies while stress and tension look to rip the group apart (sometimes seemingly much more likely than the zombies ripping the group apart). Well, Cryptozoic has just launched a Kickstarter campaign for a new board game, The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary, which brings that setting to your tabletop.
In the game, players take on the role of one of the survivors of the zombie apocalypse. One player is designated leader and must navigate through the world, looking for supplies and keeping the group together. But the leader’s commands aren’t iron-clad. The group can decide to go against what the leader says. However, with each defied order, the party’s Trust can decrease, while the Stress will increase. If Group Morale gets too low, everyone loses. So you must balance between what’s best for the group, along with what your character wants personally (which is different for each character, and is to be kept secret from one-another).
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now and is set to go for another 20 days.
