Product Details

The Best Defense is a cooperative board game in which players take on the roles of Rick Glenn Daryl Michonne and other characters. The Survivors must defend four key locations from Walkers - the Farm the Prison the Town and the Highway - in order to stay alive. The game board is assembled at random for each game providing for variability in the locations; a 25-card resource deck - containing either Equipment Allies Food or Ammunition - is placed at random on one of the locations. Walkers and other calamities are triggered in different locations by a 48-card event deck (every card is unique.) which players draw from each round. They must then figure out how to minimize the effects of these events using dice to resolve combat and determine the outcome of some events. Survivors can work together to combine their combat abilities or split up to cover more ground. If the Survivors don't clear the Walkers out of a location they'll lose resources - and if any resource deck runs out the players lose the game. Thus players need to keep the Walkers at bay while not using up too many resources themselves. Unlike most cooperative games The Walking Dead Board Game: The Best Defense includes a leadership role that player can take for one or more rounds - or even the entire game if others allow him to do so. Each player character has a unique leadership ability that provides a bonus while that character is in charge.
