A variety of versions of this 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.
It was released a few years ago and you can still get a Walking Dead Board Game here.
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 features the southwest region of the United States and includes 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 are included, and players are able to fight amongst themselves for control while fending off the oncoming hordes of rampaging zombies.
When first released the game retailed for $49.99. Currently, depending on the game purchased, today prices on Amazon range from $15 to about $40.
