Hello fellow Board Gamers, greetings from Austria!

Me and my friends are big fans of The Walking Dead. So we bought Cryptozoics Board Game and we had a lot of fun with it. After many hours of playing, the gameplay became some sort of repetitive. I created new static maps, some new encounters and modified the game for up to 6 players. Because beloved characters like Daryl or Michonne are missing, I added them too.

But there is more potential in this game. We expanded Matt Hyra's great Board Game and added a lot of stuff like Map tiles and Fate Cards. With the new content, the gameplay became more unpredictable and interesting.

After more than a half year of testing many versions of the game, we are proud to share this content with other The Walking Dead Fans. Special thanks to my main Testplayers: Thomas Hackl, Claudia Hackl, Bernhard Schottmeier, Jennifer Bauer, Marcel Harb, Oliver Leitgeb, Patrick Weber

But this is not over yet. I still have many ideas to create more content for the Board Game, if there is enough time and money. ;)

I hope, you will be excited with the new content and I wish you a lot of fun with the content. If you like it, please share this site with other fans and support this project. :)
