The Walking Dead Monopoly
If you are a fan of The Walking Dead and enjoy the monopoly board game, then you are going to love this specialised game that is based on The Walking Dead comic books on which the well loved TV series is based. Despite its post-apocalyptic setting, this Walking Dead Survival Edition Monopoly board game delivers classic Monopoly game play for 2 or more players. Hence, even if you are unfamiliar with all of The Walking Dead references, you will still be able to relate to the game. The rules are the same but the game is Walking Dead!
Instead of striving to become landlords with houses and hotels, players are trying to find land and resources that can be fortified with walls and guard towers in order to survive. In true monopoly fashion the game includes 6 play tokens but here the familiar pieces have been replaced with Walking Dead themed tokens such as Rick’s cowboy hat and Negan’s Lucille bat. The property you strive to own will be the Alexandra Safe-Zone, The Hilltop-Colony or the Kingdom. This is a dream scenario for any fan of The Walking Dead enabling them to place themselves within the same environment that our Walking Dead heroes face on a daily basis.
