The Walking Dead Best Defence Board Game - work together against the walkers
The Walking Dead Board Game: The Best Defence is a cooperative game where players take on the roles of characters from the hit TV series. Survivors must defend four key locations from Walkers (zombies) to stay alive and win.
Events are triggered in each location by a 48-card deck. Each round players must decide how best to minimise the effects of these events, using dice to resolve outcomes.
If the you don't clear a location of walkers, you'll lose resources – and if a resource deck runs out, you lose.
There's several things you'll need to juggle; You can work together to combine abilities or split up to cover more locations, you'll also need to keep the Walkers at bay while not depleting too many resources.
The Walking Dead Board Game: The Best Defence has two modes; "Beginner", where players share all information on their event cards and "Expert", where players don't have to share their event cards - this means that leaders may make decisions that are detrimental. However, players can defy the leader (for a cost) and do their own thing.
Each player also has a hidden "Ulterior Motive" card. If a player completes that mission, they earns a partial victory, even if the group would otherwise lose. These cards are optional and suggested for players who like a bit of conflict!
Unlike other cooperative games, in his board game each character has a leadership ability that provides a bonus while that player is in charge.
The game board and equipment is assembled and placed at random making gameplay different each time for each game.
