The innovative Walking Dead Card Game can accommodate 2-6 players (ages 15 and up) in "Hero" mode, and up to 10 players in the party game-friendly "Survivor" mode.

In addition to its games Cryptozoic has The Walking Dead Trading Cards (a Season 2 card set is due out this spring, see "'The Walking Dead Season 2 Trading Cards'"), and Alliance and Diamond just announced exclusive The Walking Dead-themed editions of Monopoly and Risk are due next fall (see "Diamond & Alliance Have 'Monopoly: The Walking Dead Survival Edition' Exclusive").
