First it was comic books, and then television, and then video games. Now, The Walking Dead will take over the board game market.
There will be two different Walking Dead themed board games hitting store shelves. Monopoly: The Walking Dead Survival Edition and Risk: The Walking Dead Survival Edition will be available only through Diamond Comic Distributors in September, just in time for Walking Dead's Season 4 October premiere.
Monopoly: The Walking Dead Survival Edition will have players attempt to secure zombie-infested locations in an effort to build fortifications there, instead of houses and hotels.
Risk: The Walking Dead Survival Edition will have a new map set based on the southeastern United States, where players will fight and scavenge for their lives.
Both of the new board games will be available for pre-order through Diamond's April Previews catalog, which arrives in comic book stores on March 28. Both are sure to be best sellers.
I always wanted a little more zombies in board games...
