The Walking Dead Board Games are Available for Purchase at Comic Book Specialty Stores.
(Baltimore, MD) –(October 21, 2013)- Exclusively from Skybound, Kirkman’s imprint at Image Comics, and Diamond Comic Distributor — MONOPOLY: The Walking Dead Survival Edition game is now available to purchase in comic book specialty shops. Based off The Walking Dead comic from Robert Kirkman, the game put a post-apocalyptic spin on the traditional Monopoly, giving fans the opportunity to live out the comic by fighting for their own property, and avoiding zombies with each players turn.
Despite its post-apocalyptic setting, MONOPOLY: The Walking Dead Survival Edition delivers a classic Monopoly wheeling and dealing game play. Players fight for, and then must fortify the prime real estate and resources that will sustain their lives. The game takes over the characteristic of The Walking Dead as the properties all correspond with the series landmarks such as the prison cells, Greene Family farm house, Woodbury, and more locations while game tokens resemble key items from the series such as Rick’s sheriff hat, bucket of body parts, the telephone, and the R.V. Instead of using money to purchase property, players must trade in essential supplies such as food, ammo and fuel to gain more territory on the board or to place a guard tower or wall instead of the standard houses and hotels, to secure their properties from invading zombies. There’s only one victor that will outlast the others – whether living or undead – when all is said and done. This completely customized game features six collectible tokens, optional speed play and a fight to the finish!
