RISK, the game of strategy conquest, has become a classic board game - up there with the likes of Monopoly, Clue and Scrabble - for good reason. While all board games blend a certain layer of strategy to their plays of chance, RISK lends more respect to the element of strategy placing its players into the roles of world conquerors. Now, the popular board game has joined with AMC's hit television show, The Walking Dead, which has taken the entertainment industry by storm and captured the imaginations of millions becoming the most popular show on cable.
For those new to the series, The Walking Dead tells the tale of a group of people attempting to survive in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, meeting challenges time and time again that show that the "walking dead" refer not to the undead roaming the Earth, but the people striving in these adverse circumstances to live though they are destined to die.
It is appropriate then that The Walking Dead, a story of survival, has been mixed with RISK, a game of survival. In it, you lead a group of survivors just as in the show. And you hold the fate of the group and the fate of the human race in your hands. To be able to survive, you must grow the population of your group along with its sphere of influence as you do in the normal RISK, gaining more resources and land. At the end, when the horde of Walkers overrun the board, the survivors holding the most territories will stand to win.
