The Walking Dead Risk Board Game (Product Review)
Hasbro is one of the most successful toy and game manufacturers. For decades, the company has created a number of games that have turned into household names. Risk is one of the company’s oldest and most continually popular games. Most versions 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. This new entry to the series is The Walking Dead Risk Board game which is based on the tremendously successful TV show about a beleaguered group of people struggling to survive a zombie apocalypse.
Let’s take a look at some of the features
The classic Risk game features a map of the entire world and lets players fight each other for control of the whole thing. The Walking Dead version maintains the same core idea within the scope of the world in which the show takes place. It will feature the southeast 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 main characters will be included. Players will be able to fight among themselves for control while fighting off oncoming hordes of cannibalistic zombies. While maintaining the classic game play, this version also adds a new deck of Supply Cards that add new layers of strategy.
Scheduled for release in July of 2013, the game will retail for $49.99.

It is great that the Walking Dead Risk Board game maintains the classic game play feel while updating it to a modern day, zombie-themed experience.
Things We Did Not Like About The Walking Dead Risk Board game
