The Walking Dead Board Game is coming!

I haven't had time to sit down and play a decent board game in a long time, but this bit of news from Comic Book Resources literally made me jump in excitement over the idea that I may just return to the fold soon playing a new game based on one of my favorite zombie series of all time!

Yessiree folks, it looks like Robert Kirkman's "The Walking Dead" franchise is hitting the board game scene with an official release from the folks at SKYBOUND and Z-Man games! This will allow fans to delve into the lore of what has already become a vast and intriguing story about survival horror, where a group of survivors continue to find ways to survive and deal with the zombie apocalypse and maintain a semblance of their former lives... Without trying to tear each other apart. Players will get the chance to play as favorite characters from the series like Rick Grimes, Shane Walsh, Andrea, Michonne, and a whole lot more, and deal with the undead and collect supplies to survive!

I don't know about you folks, but I'm setting my eyes on this board game and purchasing it when I get the chance! I've been a fan of Kirkman's series since the comics, and its popularity has grown even more thanks to the AMC TV series adaptation that will see its second season premiere later this fall! If you love zombies and survival horror like I do, watch out for this and the opportunity to immerse yourself in the experience!

The Walking Dead Board Game, published by Z-Man Games, designed and developed by MegaGigaOmniCorp, Inc. and To Be Continued, LLC, will be for 1-6 Players and arrives in stores late summer and is slated for a retail price of $39.99. For more info on the game, check out the source post at CBR!
