USAopoly, Diamond Comics Release Monopoly: The Walking Dead Survival Edition

5.0.3Exclusively from Skybound, Robert Kirkman’s imprint at Image Comics, and Diamond Comic Distributor, Monopoly: The Walking Dead Survival Editiongame is now available to purchase in comic book specialty shops.  Based off The Walking Dead comic from Kirkman, the game put a post-apocalyptic spin on the traditional Monopoly, giving fans the opportunity to live out the comic by fighting for their own property, and avoiding zombies with each players turn.

Monopoly: The Walking Dead Survival Edition delivers a classic Monopoly game play.  Players fight for, and then must fortify the prime real estate and resources that will sustain their lives. The game takes over the characteristic of The Walking Dead as the properties all correspond with the series landmarks such as the prison cells, Greene Family farm house, Woodbury, and more locations, while game tokens resemble key items from the series such as Rick’s sheriff hat, bucket of body parts, the telephone, and the R.V.

Instead of using money to purchase property, players must trade in essential supplies, such as food, ammo, and fuel, to gain more territory on the board or to place a guard tower or wall instead of the standard houses and hotels, to secure their properties from invading zombies. This game features six collectible tokens and optional speed play.

Additional The Walking Dead merchandise, including comics, apparel, toys and, collectibles, can also be purchased at comic book stores or through Diamond’s Previews catalog.
