The Walking Dead Board Games are Available for Purchase at Comic Book Specialty Stores

(Baltimore, MD) –(November 4, 2013)- Exclusively from Skybound, Kirkman’s imprint at Image Comics, and Diamond Comic Distributor RISK: The Walking Dead Survival Edition game is now available to purchase in comic book specialty shops.  Based off The Walking Dead comic from Robert Kirkman, the game put a post-apocalyptic spin on the traditional Risk game, giving fans the opportunity to live out the comic by fighting for their own property, and avoiding zombies with each players turn.

In RISK: The Walking Dead Survival Edition it’s a fun, new twist on classic Risk game play.  USAopoly will debut a brand new map set in the Southeastern region of the United States where players battle and scavenge for their very lives within 32 territories. Fighting for survival at every turn, gamers must not only fend off attacks from the living that compete for precious, limited resources, but they also must maintain their self-preservation from the unrelenting hordes of the undead that would feast upon them. Zombies, also known as “Walkers” in The Walking Dead, will populate areas of the map and will continue to randomly spawn at the start of each players turn providing increased danger for the players. A new deck of “Supply Cards” will add strategy, fun and flavor to this classic tabletop game and “Event Cards” which reference story events from The Walking Dead provide players with challenges with potential rewards and penalties to create even more suspense filled interaction.  The tokens, dice and cards represent essential The Walking Dead items that are used to strategically plan and execute plans of attack and build defense throughout the game. Gamers can expect a fast-paced game of attrition and survival, where this time—the last man standing wins!

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
