Sad That THE WALKING DEAD Season 2 Is Almost Over? Win THE WALKING DEAD Board Game To Keep You Busy Until Season 3!!!

The Kidd here...

Things are about to get quite interesting for the Season 2 finale of THE WALKING DEAD, and then that's it... then we're done for a few months, waiting until probably October to pick up where we left off with a group of survivors doing their best to navigate a world infested by walkers. It's going to feel like a long time, but, thanks to Cryptozoic Entertainment, I've got just the thing to feed your zombie fix during THE WALKING DEAD offseason... THE WALKING DEAD Board Game.

I've got TWO copies of the game to give away as Season 2 wraps up, and, to take your best shot at laying claim to one of them, your best zombie work is required. 

However you choose to go about it, I want you to lay your best zombie on me. Whether it's a costume, a drawing, digital art, etc., I'm looking for the best original zombie creation sent in to be rewarded with THE WALKING DEAD Board Game. What makes it the best? I don't know... It could be the scariest. It could be the funniest. That's entirely up to you. I just know that when I see the best, I'll know it, and those two individuals will be rewarded for their efforts. 

In the body of your emails, send in the picture of your zombie (original work ONLY), your full name and mailing address in the body of an email to to with the following subject line exactly:


No name or address means no entry, so don't forget such vital information, if you want a real shot at winning.

The deadline for this contest is Sunday, March 18, at 8:59 p.m. EST (one tick before the season finale kicks off). Winners will be posted on the site once results have been decided.

One entry per person. This contest is open to U.S. residents only. 

Good luck to you all, and thanks to Cryptozoic Entertainment for the cool opportunity.

    More Sad

    by tripleslap

    That Season Two has continued to ruin the heart of the original story. Sorry to come on here and troll, and last nights episode was an improvement, but I just have to unburden myself.

  • March 12, 2012, 1:41 p.m. CST

    I'd play that if I was bored.

    I probably haven't played a board game since I was 10

    by Jaster Mareel

    Is this show really aimed at 10 year olds?

  • March 12, 2012, 1:52 p.m. CST

    I had to kill AMC for making a mistake...

    by Dick Jones

    ...and that mistake being a board game being made from a tv show. Can ANYone tell me this gets them EXCITED? Did anyone read it and go "HOT DAMN I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS!".

    They need to update the box cover after the last two episodes.

    Why are all the recent contests for U.S. residents only?

    by BenBraddock

    I've got a kick-ass zombie piece I want to enter but living in Sweden well I guess I'm fucked. Suck-city >(

  • March 12, 2012, 2:18 p.m. CST

    Does the game include badass plastic minis I can use in badass dioramas?

    by Royston Lodge

    If not, then no deal.

    Got this game for Christmas and it's lots of fun.

    by sweeneydave

    Played it with my son. Played it with my wife. Played it with a bunch of work friends. Played it with the in-laws. It's really freaking hard, and it's more about helping each other stay alive while sort of competing with each other. Really though, you just get excited if ONE person makes it to the end. There are times you can give tools to friends who are about to get chomped, but resources are VERY limited (like the original Resident Evil games). So why give your tools away to save somebody else? Because once a player bites it, they turn into a zombie and now they are coming after YOU. Nothing more challenging than an intelligent zombie. Fun game. You can start off as all survivors or play teams with 2 survivors vs. 2 zombies. It's creative, and the pieces are good quality too - not el cheapo. And whichever character you pick has a specific special "power" that can be used ONCE only per game. My only complaint is that it's not a perfect marriage of strategy and luck. There's a little more weight to the luck side (with lots of dice rolling and whatnot).

    I want to be Carl

    by Iowa Snot Client

    His piece can move to any spot on the board at any time at will and the other players can't do a thing about it.

  • March 12, 2012, 3:58 p.m. CST

    Carl's spot is always supposed to be in the house...

    by skycrapper

    however somehow he never goes in the house ... fun ensues!

  • March 12, 2012, 4:29 p.m. CST

    at least this will have a list of rules to follow

    by judge dredds fresh undies

    something the writers of the series could do with drawing up for themselves, LOL.

    "Chance" - Get lectured by Dale, lose a turn.

    No Breaking Bad game?

    by tangcameo

    With little trinkets like in Clue or Monopoly. Miniature bag of blue meth. Miniature pipe bomb. Miniature Aztek. Would it involve knocking?

  • March 12, 2012, 5:07 p.m. CST


    by replica

    There was a Breaking Bad game, but everyone kept snorting the sand in the hourglass.

  • March 12, 2012, 5:11 p.m. CST

    So does this game take an hour to get nowhere?

    by melikeemovies

  • March 12, 2012, 5:19 p.m. CST

    Tis a difficult game, however...

    by puto tenax

    ...makes for a good family night, me, the boy and the wife. Love us some zombies. It's cool when you're beaten as a human and go forth as zombie. The makers will no doubt have to re-issue some cards to keep it fresh.

  • March 12, 2012, 5:41 p.m. CST


    by Paul Paradis

    Opponents who land on your farm property will lose 13 (a seasons worth of )turns, and will be tortured with boring and emo dialog.

  • March 12, 2012, 5:42 p.m. CST

    The Game is Rigged

    by wrath 4771

    You can't lose if you're carl, because you don't have to listen to anyone. Lose a turn? Screw that! Go ahead six spaces! You're carl, damnit!

  • March 12, 2012, 5:48 p.m. CST

  • March 12, 2012, 9:40 p.m. CST

    seriously, folks...

    by omarthesnake

    you don't like the show. We get that. WE DON'T FUCKING CARE that you don't like the show. Go on with your lives. Find something else to watch. there are plenty of channels. WE DON'T FUCKING CARE what you think about the show. You're pitiful sacks of hate. Fuck off. Shamble towards the Resident Evil DVD coming out next month for your nonstop, personality-free actionfest. You're wasting your time posting about a show you hate. You're investing your own time in bile. FUCK. OFF.

  • March 12, 2012, 9:41 p.m. CST


    by omarthesnake

    WE. DON'T. FUCKING. CARE. and neither should you. You should move in and find something that brings joy to your life, not obsess on something that doesn't.

    The Walking Dead..

    by SpaghettiWall

    Boring show. It had a premise worth pursuing, and it just ends up being fucking boring.

    It's not that season 2 has been bad....

    by Jaster Mareel

    It just seriously pales in comparison to season 1. A BIG reason for that is being stuck on that mother fucking farm. I mean, it doesn't even make sense. The whole planet is swarming with zombies, yet these people are somehow zombie-immune since the outbreak? Aside from the few in the barn, and even that doesn't make a lot of sense because how the fuck did they wrangle them in there in the first place? Anyway, the end of Sunday's episode promises things will pick up starting next episode so let's just hope this has been a wayside and it will get exciting again. DON'T FUCK THIS UP AMC!

  • I asked for it for Christmas, not expecting my wife to actually get it for me. Board games can be tricky. They tend to be either too frustratingly complicated, or too simple and boring. I own lots of board games, but with most of them, once is enough. This game I actually enjoyed lots and it surprised me. Last board game that I enjoyed this much was Star Wars: Epic Duels. Anyone play that? I let my son play with all the pieces 10 years ago and ended up having to buy a new game. Since then, that game has also been trashed, but you can't buy it anywhere anymore.
