Walking Dead Board Game

Nothing says “Christmas” like a bleak board game where everyone gets turned into a zombie!

Walking Dead board game

My brother in-common-law refuses to play this game with my sister because it’s bleak and nearly impossible to win, so Nancy made me and her friend Daniel play it this evening.

They look far too happy for people who are about to be eaten by zombies:

Everyone is a character from the show. I was Rick Grimes:

Nancy was Lori and Daniel was Dale.

The object of the game is to get the cards from the four corners without getting turned into a zombie. But almost every square you land on is a zombie encounter and most of them are really hard to escape from without losing a life. I managed to get two of the four – the department store and the police station:

But then I got killed at the CDC:Untitled

And so I was turned into a zombie:Untitled

At which point I then started playing *against* the other people in the game. Nancy also turned (I didn’t get her, but she lost all her lives in other zombie encounters), but Daniel managed to avoid us, win his zombie encounters while getting all the corner cards and got back to camp safe!

Much like when I did the zombie obstacle course race, I realized that after getting turned into a zombie, life is a lot less stressful. Words to live by, people. Words to live by.

Zombie Beth

So apparently this is what I would look like as a zombie1:

Is it just me, or does zombification actually make me look younger?

For the record, we now know what I’d look like as a zombie, a Simpson character, a South Park character, and an M&M. In case you are keeping count.
