Mantic Games Announces Here's Negan Board Game

In The Walking Dead, the zombies are often not the scariest or most dangerous things around. The still-living are often much more evil. Such is the case with Negan. In the new game Here's Negan, coming from Mantic Games, players take on the role of Negan's lieutenants in the early days of his reign. They must clear out the Sanctuary, making it safe... err... well, "safe" for those that want to stay there.

Monday Terrain Corner

Well, I'm coming to realize that this is not going to be a regular week. With all the prep and hype for GAMA last week, even though I realize that I leave for Adepticon this week, it's still sort of a, "oh yeah, that..." instead of, y'know, "Oh yeah! That!!" At Adepticon, one of the things people want to see most are the cool armies and army boards. It's a big miniatures game, so you know there's going to be some awesome-looking tables. If you want your tables to look that good, you'll probably want to check out the stories below.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Dale's RV Coming to The Walking Dead and

New The Walking Dead: All Out War Boosters Available To Order

Well, Mantic is letting you bring a bunch more of those characters to your tabletops in The Walking Dead: All Out War, as a bunch of boosters are available to pre-order.

The Walking Dead: Prelude to Woodbury Solo Starter Set Now Shipping

Well, the world's once more come to an end. Damnit, Carl! I told you to not go out into the cold weather! Now there's zombies, zombies everywhere! (... and not a drop to drink?) But while we sit here in our bunker, hearing all the cries of "braaaaaains!" from just outside, at least we can play The Walking Dead: Prelude to Woodbury from Mantic Games. And by "we," I mean "me" because it's a solo game and everyone else is a zombie.

Pledge Manager Now Open For The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary

There's all sorts of reasons why you might miss out on a Kickstarter. Perhaps you just didn't have the funds at the time, or you were out of town when the campaign was going and missed the announcement for it, or you've since decided you wished you'd been on it. Well, thankfully, many companies will open up to new customers during the Pledge Manager section of the campaign. Cryptozoic has done just that with The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary.

Gen Con Day 2 Photo Galleries

So, it's coming up to 8pm. Day 2 is definitely in the books for Gen Con 2016. It's been a very busy day. I'm tired, but still pretty amped about everything that's gone on. And I'm sure you all would like to know about some of it. There's been about a billion things to see. So, relatively, here's a rather small percentage. More will come tomorrow.

Cryptozoic Restructuring The Walking Dead Kickstarter

The Kickstarter campaign for Cryptozoic's new board game based on The Walking Dead TV show hit quite a rough patch last week. They went from funding and heading through stretch goals to actually dipping down below their funding goal level. But with only 5 days left in the campaign, there has been a bunch of restructuring, with new pledge levels and some new add-ons that seem to have righted the ship back up again.

Cryptozoic Launches The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary Kickstarter

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.

Woodbury Expansion Add-On Added To The Walking Dead Kickstarter

Tanks.
"You're welcome."
No, tanks!
"I said you're welcome!"
Look! Tanks!
"Ooooh... tanks... Holy Crap! Tanks!"
You know, you'd think that having a tank during a zombie outbreak wouldn't be so bad. Well-armored, can travel over all sorts of terrain, and can certainly take out a zombie or two. It's not so good, however, when one's facing you down. Well, they don't have the actual tanks coming for The Walking Dead: All Out War, but but the Governor in charge of it they do have.

Mantic Games is going to jail. Well, the Walking Dead: All Out War is going to jail. That is to say that the Prison Expansion set has been added to the Kickstarter campaign that's going on now. You can add it now to your pledge if you feel like doing that sort of thing (and I know a lot of you do).

Mantic Previews The Walking Dead Rules

Mantic's Kickstarter campaign for The Walking Dead: All Out War continues to shuffle along over on Kickstarter. But then again, zombies shuffle. It's what they do. With just over a week gone in the campaign, they've made it to over 5x funded, breaking into several stretch goals along the way. To help entice more into the zombie lifestyle, they've posted up an overview of the rules over on their website.

Mantic Games Launches The Walking Dead Kickstarter

Get ready!
Get set!
Shamble!
Mantic has launched their Kickstarter campaign for The Walking Dead: All Out War. And though the finish line is still almost a month away, they have already reached their goal. The game funded very quick (as pretty much everyone expected) and they're working their way through stretch goals. I wouldn't be surprised if they passed quite a few even by the time you read this, since they're working their way through now, even as I type this.
