manufacturers for decades, and the company has created a
number of games that turned into household names over the
years. Risk is one of the company’s oldest and continually
most popular games as it let players battle against each other
for world conquest and domination. A variety of versions of the
classic game have been released as tie-ins for various movies
and television shows. The newest entry to the series is The
Walking Dead Risk Board game and is based on the wildly
successful TV show about a plucky group struggling to survive
a zombie apocalypse.

Let’s take a look at some of the features

The classic Risk game featured a map of the entire world and let players fight each other for control of the whole thing. The Walking Dead version maintains the same principle but carries over into the universe of the show. It will feature the southwest region of the United States and include most, if not all, of the show’s most recognizable landmarks, such as the CDC, the city of Atlanta, Hershel’s farm, the highway, and more. All the mainstay characters will be included, and players will be able to fight amongst themselves for control while fending off the oncoming hordes of rampaging zombies. In addition to maintaining the classic game play style, the game also adds a new deck of Supply Cards that add new layers of strategy.

How Much?

Scheduled for release in July of 2013, the game will retail for $49.99.
