Walker Wednesdays: The Walking Dead Risk: Survival Edition

We continue our newest tradition here at Idle Hands, showing you the finest in zombie products, collectibles...and basically anything we might get our hands on that screams BRAAAAAIIIIIINNNNNSSS from inside the box. Today, we check out an exclusive release from Diamond Distributors in a special edition of the board game Risk, dedeco'd and redesigned in a Walking Dead comic book theme!

Exclusively from Skybound, Kirkman's imprint at Image Comics, and Diamond Comic Distributor — RISK: 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 Risk game, giving fans the opportunity to live out the comic by fighting for their own property, and avoiding zombies with each players turn.

In RISK: The Walking Dead Survival Edition it’s a fun, new twist on classic Risk game play.  USAopoly will debut a brand new map set in the Southeastern region of the United States where players battle and scavenge for their very lives within 32 territories. Fighting for survival at every turn, gamers must not only fend off attacks from the living that compete for precious, limited resources, but they also must maintain their self-preservation from the unrelenting hordes of the undead that would feast upon them. Zombies, also known as “Walkers” in The Walking Dead, will populate areas of the map and will continue to randomly spawn at the start of each players turn providing increased danger for the players. A new deck of "Supply Cards" will add strategy, fun and flavor to this classic tabletop game and “Event Cards” which reference story events from The Walking Dead provide players with challenges with potential rewards and penalties to create even more suspense filled interaction.  The tokens, dice and cards represent essential The Walking Dead items that are used to strategically plan and execute plans of attack and build defense throughout the game. Gamers can expect a fast-paced game of attrition and survival, where this time—the last man standing wins!
